Every day, musicians write, record and release new music in Ontario — so each week, we're bringing you some of our favourites.
Music columnist Adam Carter is on CBC Radio One's In the Key of C and Big City Small World on Saturdays, with your guide to what's new and exciting in Ontario music.
Here are this week's picks:
This new track from Aurganic is ridiculously well composed, performed and produced.
It's a mix of undulating jazz drums and flowing time signatures, alongside electronica and post rock influences. That's a lot fighting for space at once, but it totally works here.
The whole thing is topped off with some otherworldly vocal harmonies.
Pony Girl: Little Life
Ottawa's Pony Girl just dropped a brand new video for this track.
Little Life is so ethereal, and so spacey.
I'm really into the use of reverb here.
Lemon Bucket Orkestra: Freedom
Freedom is from Lemon Bucket Orkestra's upcoming LP If I Had the Strength, which drops next month.
The band is really sticking to its eastern-European, klezmer, party-punk roots here.
I feel like I should be drinking a ton of vodka while listening to this thing.
GTHA listeners can catch Adam on Big City Small World on Saturdays at 5 p.m. ET, on 99.1 FM. Listeners across the rest of the province can hear him on In the Key of C at 5 p.m.
