Let’s waste no more time and let’s take a look at this week’s albums, remember to support these bands in the ways that you can, every little action matters, thank you so much for your love, enjoy and don’t forget to leave a message to know your thoughts. And remember that you can find me also on Stationhead, I’m doing one daily show with some of the new tracks that I’m adding to the playlist Unknown But Essentials! and if you can catch me live you can listen to any of the shows just by clicking on them.



1.- Cosmic Mints DAWGS In their own words: “Get ready to have your eardrums caressed and your brain showered with sweet lovin’ as they bring you a unique blend of funk, reggae, lo-fi, and folk or something. Recorded entirely DIY, this EP is sure to be an intimate insight into the countless nights spent underground in the rehearsal cave on the gentle slopes of the Black Forest. Get ready to groove”.

2.- “Platys Yialos” Named after a remote beach on a Greek island named Serifos, the Ali George EP is home to 3 acoustic vibrant folk ballads. The beach and its rather magical name were the inspiration for 2 of the songs, namely the titular track and “Another Girl”. You can read our review here.

3.- Maëla Raoult Maëla offers us a soft and colorful atmosphere for this new album titled “Hypokrat”, in which African rhythms are mixed with jazz and oriental colors and the warm sound of the clarinet and the bass clarinet. Maëla lets us navigate and reveals five original and personal compositions as well as the arrangement of the two fabulous standards: Who walks in when I walk out and Mackie Messer.

4.- Grimm Winter Founded in DC, Grimm Winter is a symphonic blend of indie, alt-rock, and folk music. With a strong emphasis on storytelling & modern-day mythologies, evocative metaphor & melodies, the 5 piece band weaves together stories and songs that blur the line between literal and fantastical. “Sojourn” is a reflection on transitional times in life – in places, with people, and the fleeting connections we make with each other.

5.- The debut album “Tell Me Why I’ve Come Home” from Louisiana Native Americana/Folk artist Callie Hines, is a collection of songs that Callie has written over their 10-year music career. The EP as a whole touches upon themes of loneliness, doubt, loss of self, and renewed hope; these themes are captured by uplifting, catchy choruses and nuanced instrumentals reminiscent of sounds they were raised on growing up on the bayou.

6.- Bonded Jacky in her own words: “I was recently told that “Cool People Don’t Exist” and it stuck with me. We all have social masks that we put up, where we define ourselves by the way others see us. This record is a behind-the-scenes look at our maskless selves and our constant struggle to come across as cooler than we are, whatever cool means.”

7.- “Little Reminders” is the first complete official release from Gabriel Pajor, a Toronto-based singer-songwriter and producer. Gabriel has been involved with music since childhood, and wrote these songs as an alt-pop venture, less an X on the map to find; more an emotional journey to unveil.

Little reminders mixes elements of all the styles Gabriel has experimented with over the years, touching something mainstream, but retaining the underground elements that color his past, along with the soft touch of inspiration that nature provides.

8.- (The) Giver Of Life EP is a part of the upcoming album Preach by The 150 Friends Club. The album is an epic, rock opera type look at the whole business of raising vampires (ie, children). Giver Of Life in particular is about mothers sung in a grand, rocking, military-esque style with an anthemic middle which sounds almost religious. The album as a whole draws on biblical language, and much like the bible, is not afraid to shed some blood. Unlike the bible though, it does have the occasional spot of humour.

9.- The Helix Bruise EP by Aki Traaroffers a fresh and futuristic take on post-club music. Spanning a range from indie electro-pop (featuring US vocalist Liyv) to psychedelic hip-hop with French-Austrian rapper Dyin Ernst, to bubble trance dance music with an aspect of glitch and sound art all the way to downtempo with an edge of contemporary classical.
