Check out brand new tracks from Bosveld, Neverending White Lights and Minotaurs. 8:45

As we barrel towards the holiday season, lets give you a brief respite from Christmas songs.

This week, check out some great new tunes from  Bosveld, Neverending White Lights and Minotaurs 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.

Bosveld: Back of Yr Mind

This tune from Ottawa's Bosveld comes from Veldbrand, which came out late this fall. Just try to find a more eastern European band and song name combo, we dare you.

There's a constant sense of movement that pushes this track along. The stand up bass in the background just pulses, and the string sections are phenomenal.

Neverending White Lights: My Fate

Next up is My Fate from Windsor's Neverending White Lights, featuring Dallas Green on vocals.

This is an unreleased B-Side that's coming out as part of the remastered version of The Grace.

This track is peak Dallas Green. There's a real emotional weight here.

Minotaurs: Gold Rush Lady

The groove on this tune from Guelph's Minotaurs is inescapable. 

And if that rhythm doesn't immediate grab you, the atmosphere certainly will.

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.
