It’s that time of the week again – CBC Hamilton reporter Adam Carter is back with his three picks for new Ontario music that you need to listen to this week.

Adam is on the air each week on CBC Radio for In the Key of C, hosted by Craig Norris. He’ll choose three Ontario bands or artists that are releasing new music for your listening pleasure. Here are this week’s picks:

Dan Daly: King Cool

With a track name like that, this tune needs to be solid. Luckily, it is.

Mississauga's Dan Daly churns out solid electro pop-rock on King Cool, and that arpeggiated keyboard line will get stuck in your head real quick.

Allegories feat. Meagha: Evaporate

We like our dreamy synth pop best when it comes from mysterious sources. Allegories won't tell anyone who they are or where they're from (PS: we know, and we're not telling), and that just adds to the band's allure.

Jessy Lanza fans will find lots to like here.

LeE HARVeY OsMOND: Blue Moon Drive

Is that Tom Waits, or Tom Wilson?

This brand new track from the Blackie and the Rodeo Kings member is both parts southern and sullen, and anchored by his unmistakable voice. We can't wait for the new record.

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.
