Windows - The Sun Dogs
of the great new discoveries of 2013 that I’m super excited about
is Rose Windows
whose debut album is a revelatory mash up of sound and styles. Heavy-duty
rock and roll mixes with softer beautiful moments and prog-y explorations.
There’s a little bit of Jesse Sykes & the Sweet Hereafter and
a little bit of Portugal. The Man in there, but mostly a whole lotta
awesome. This is an album in the original sense,
a complete set of take-you-away
songs that are meant to be heard one after another. Get ahead of the
curve and get involved with The Sun Dogs.

The Besnard Lakes:
Until In Excess,
two points define a line, then the Besnard Lakes’
new album seems to sit at the exact midpoint
of the line defined by Broken Social Scene and Gabriel-era Genesis.
Filled with beautiful soundscapes, haunting melodies, and some explosive
post-rock moments, Until In Excess is one
wonderfully patient six-minute track
