Music by Bergman: Kiwi Jr.

Though all members hail from Charlottetown, PEI, and they’re signed to Vancouver’s Mint Records, Kiwi Jr. are very much a part of Toronto’s independent music scene. Full of 80s college rock and 90s indie rock feel-goodness, the band’s debut album Football Money will no doubt fool throwback slackers into adopting this band as their own.

Introducing…Marsicans

Marsicans are an emerging indie-pop band of 21 year-olds from Leeds, England. Their infectious pop hooks, strong harmonies, quirky lyrics, Yorkshire accents, offbeat northern humour and energetic performances have earned them glowing reviews and a growing fanbase since they first formed at high school in 2011.

The British indie-rockers have shared one of their most hard-hitting works to date in the form of Can I Stay Here Forever (pt. II). Injected with a substantial dose of honesty and unfiltered feelings, it’s a powerful track that packs a punch not only in its lyrical content, but also in its hooking guitar melodies that soar above any throes being expressed. Born out of circumstances of turbulence, the sentiments are clearly reflected in the band’s infectious offering that takes on a larger-than-life character.

The muses of La Musa: Louise Lemón

Louise Lemón is a Swedish artist classified in the genre «death gospel», with rich reminiscences of the first Fleetwood Mac, bands of the spectrum of The Dead Weather or the darker PJ Harvey, with a deliciously evocative vocal record and a huge personality. It will please all fans of other contemporary female vocalists like Myrkur or Chelsea Wolfe.

Divus Julius presents: Thundercat

Thundercat forms a cornerstone of the Brainfeeder label; he released “Golden Age of Apocalypse” (2011), “Apocalypse” (2013), followed by EP “The Beyond / Where The Giants Roam” featuring the modern classic ‘Them Changes’.  He was later “at the creative epicenter” of the 21st century’s most influential hip-hop album Kendrick Lamar’s “To Pimp A Butterfly”, where he won a Grammy for his collaboration on the track ‘These Walls’ before releasing his game-changing third album “Drunk” in 2017. In 2018 Thundercat and Flying Lotus composed an original score for an episode of Golden Globe and Emmy award winning TV series “Atlanta” (created and written by Donald Glover).

Thundercat has shared another track from his forthcoming album ‘It Is What It Is’. Titled ‘Dragonball Durag’, it follows up on lead single ‘Black Qualls’ in previewing the full-length, which drops on April 3rd.

Hit of the week: Jonathan Bree ‘Kiss my lips’

On a red hot day for Valentine’s releases, what better way to round things off than with a new tune from the titanic pairing of Tāmaki Makaurau’s Jonathan Bree and Princess Chelsea? The third single from Bree’s forthcoming album After the Curtains Close, Kiss My Lips‘ offers listeners a chocolate box of dreamy melodies, finger-snapping rhythms and lustful wordplay to tuck into, with Princess Chelsea taking centre stage in a lavish black and white stage production for the song’s celebratory accompanying clip, directed by the masked artist himself.
