3 new Ontario songs you need to hear this week
Check out new music from Chastity, Hush Pup and Yessica Woahneil
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 on Saturdays, with your guide to what's new and exciting in Ontario music.
Here are this week's picks:
Chastity: Heaven Hell Anywhere Else
Chastity's Heaven Hell Anywhere Else is one of the best tunes I've heard this year, bar none. I was absolutely blown away the first time I listened to it.
This track, and by extension this entire album, owes a ton to grunge — but features more modern production values and sensibilities.
Brandon Williams's songwriting easily stands with some of the best in Canadian rock right now.
Hush Pup: Body of Work/Ritual
Body of Work/Ritual is from Hush Pup's Flower Power, which drops later this month.
This is my favourite kind of pop track.
It's dreamy, layered, and features a killer vocal line.
Yessica Woahneil: Washing on Shore
Yessica Woahneil's Washing on Shore is such a sweet, lilting little tune.
The only instrumentation here is a ukulele, so the focus is purely on Woahneil's vocals.
That suits me just fine. She has the sort of voice you could listen to all day.
