Illustrious Vancouver-based alt-indie-synth duo Fur Trade have signed to Light Organ Records. A collaboration between four-time JUNO nominee Steve Bays and Parker Bossley, (Hot Hot Heat, Mounties, The Gay Nineties), Fur Trade is excited to premiere the single, “LOL Trash”, a soaring indie-sleaze glam rock track that showcases their nimble production skills, tongue in cheek lyricism, and penchant for creating an irresistible groove. The accompanying video is retro-feeling yet fresh, consisting of real life snapshots of Parker and Steve at various house parties and bars, shot the same weekend they wrote “LOL Trash”.
“Words With You,” the new single from the one and only Funklordz Chromeo is out today — listen and watch the lyric video here. Written and produced by David “Dave 1” Macklovitch and Patrick “P-Thugg” Gemayel, “Words With You” was mixed by legendary New York producer Morgan Geist (Metro Area, Storm Queen).
Montreal-based songwriter and performer Carlyn releases “Bad Habit” today, a new single produced by Patrick Krief (Darkometro, formerly of The Dears). The hurt protagonist feels conflicted about her vices, compelled to choose the lesser of two evils: smoking or being with someone who is bad for her. Carlyn typically crafts fictional stories, often writing from the villain’s perspective through a developed character. But, sometimes draws inspiration from her own life and experiences. Carlyn wears her heart on her sleeve and showcases vulnerability, putting herself in the spotlight with this release. “I wanted to create something familiar but unsettling, grounded but off, enticing but scary,” she explains about its music video in which she takes center stage. “The way a habit can be comforting but ultimately detrimental to someone.”
Today, Indie outfit Ten Kills the Pack releases Thank You For Trying, a concept album that tells the story of ‘the artist’s journey’ in two acts. Frontman Sean Sroka holds up a magnifying glass to the very idea of what it means to be an artist, with stories that mimic his own journey and experiences. It’s a bold new expression from a poetic and nuanced artist that pushes the boundaries of what a singer-songwriter is or can be. Listen to Thank You For Trying out now on all digital retailers (here)
