3 new Ontario songs you need to hear this week
Check out brand new music from Aurganic, Lemon Bucket Orkestra and Pony Girl
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.
