3 new Ontario songs you need to hear this week
Check out brand new music from Megan Landry, Iskwe and Majid Jordan
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:
Megan Landry: No Politics in Pangea
I don't understand why Megan Landry hasn't totally blown up yet.
No Politics in Pangea is just another in a long list of examples from a performer with legitimate, quantifiable talent in both songwriting and performance.
In short: This is great. Listen to it right now.
Healers is from Iskwé's brand new album The Fight Within.
She says this record touches on issues that impact Indigenous people every single day.
"From our Missing & Murdered Women and Girls to youth suicide epidemics within our communities to the land protectors out fighting for our planet each and every day; I wanted to counter the stereotypes cast our way and push back against the idea that we won't or can't succeed," she said.
Majid Jordan: Body Talk
OVO Sound's Majid Jordan just dropped a brand new album called The Space Between.
This is some smooth R&B.
To quote the great Ron Burgundy, "That's baby making music, that's what that is."
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.
