Check out some great new tracks from Meike, Public Animal and No King for Countrymen

It's the Labour Day long weekend, so make sure you're sending summer out with a bang.

To help foster the party, check out these new tracks from Meike, Public Animal and No King for Countrymen as part of reporter Adam Carter's weekly spot from In the Key of C on CBC Radio 1.

You can listen to Adam and host Craig Norris talk these picks in the player above, and listen to the tracks right here.

Mieke: Sleeping Alone

Until now, Dundas' Mieke has been predominantly known as a model and actress, but her first EP shows that she's a true triple threat.

Sleeping Alone effortlessly blends together pop, soul and electronic sounds with her phenomenal voice. Well worth a listen.

Public Animal: Breaking the Low

Do you love Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, but wish you could just mash the best parts of both those bands together (Born Again notwithstanding) with a female singer?

Good — then go listen to Public Animal right now.

No King for Countrymen: Alright, You Win

Hamilton's No King for Countrymen just released a brand new music video for this song — and man, do these guys ever sound like Motion City Soundtrack.

From the vocal tonality to the backbeat, it has that exact same sort of pop punk sound. This is in no way a bad thing however, and anyone who is into pop punk will find lots to like here.

Thanks for listening this week. You can hear Adam during In the Key of C every Saturday evening at 5 p.m. on CBC Radio. In the Key of C can be heard across the province, except for the GTA. Hamilton listeners can hear this segment in the audio player above.
