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:

Born Ruffians

Miss You is a brand new track from Born Ruffians.

The chorus from this one embedded itself into my brain right away.

You'll be able to hear the band play it yourself real soon.

They'll be performing all over southern Ontario in March and April.

Beams: You Are an Ocean

You Are an Ocean is from Beams' upcoming album that's out on Feb. 23.

This tune is eclectic, nouveau-folk at its finest.

I'm a big fan of the banjo, especially when it's integrated into something contemporary like this.

Omhouse: Aurock

This track is from Eye to Eye, which is out on Jan. 26.

It's all about the juxtaposition between disjointed rhythms and flowing arpeggiated sections.

It's a great art rock trip.

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.
