Rachel Mazer channels her grief on "Home," debut LP out 3/8

Writing and composing is a coping mechanism for Rachel Mazer on "Home." On her latest single, the soulful singer-songwriter documents the grief she underwent after she lost her brother. Her silken vocals add welcoming warmth to the song's breezy jazz rhythm, exhibiting a more subdued take to the vigorous delivery of her previous single "Open Heart." It's through her tempered affliction that we're able to truly empathize with her story, which as sad as it may be, ultimately soars with a hopeful message. 

"Home" is the third single off of Mazer's forthcoming debut LP, which she will self-release on March 9. Juan Rodríguez

Beef Boys - As Rowdy As Their Name Suggests, Monarch Tavern on 04.01

There’s always one rowdy Peterborough band showing up on my feed. Beef Boys are a three piece garage punk band that’ll get ya flippin’ tables by the second song. They giver at a ferocious pace and still find the time to add some surfy influences. Fire up their latest album “Melted Like A Witch” on their bandcamp page. Your next chance to see them in Toronto is April 1st at the Monarch Tavern along with Bad Sports from Texas and Toronto power pop sensations First Base. – Kris Gies





Sparkle Carpet

Feminist folk trio Sparkle Carpet are the tough, goth ladies we’ve been waiting for. Their album, We Do Stares, has such an “I don’t give a shit” attitude that reviewing it almost feels redundant. Emphasis on almost. Their music is lively and boisterous. “Mrs. Robinson Digs Me,” a playful take on the Simon & Garfunkel original, is incredibly fun to listen to. The use of triangle adds an enjoyably childlike aspect to the songs, but in no way does it make the music childish. It makes the music sharper, bringing attention to the cheeky smirks behind each word sung. Other songs, such as “You Don’t Think” reveal the steely inner core at the heart of the band. The resolve and determination in the song’s hoarse vocals are rousing.

Sparkle Carpet's next show is Friday, April 19th at Murder Mine. Loud in the Morning, Earth of Foxes, Geophagia will also be playing sets.

Olivia Reid charts her own destiny on "Norfolk Drive"

Olivia Reid’s new single “Norfolk Drive” begins recalling a specific memory - “I met you on the first day of August so many years ago.” As an invocation of people and places past, it endows her soft-spoken folk with a wistful tone before quickly transitioning into the present tense as Reid sings of “riding the train to the end of the line,” of moving forward in both a physical and metaphorical sense, just as the track picks up steam with soft percussive claps of distant synth accents. While “Norfolk Drive” may be a track mired by a painful past, its lyrical and instrumental elements showcase Reid as a powerful, driven songwriter, able to learn from experience while charting her own distinct destiny. Stream it below, together with 2018 single "Organic Bloom," which gathered close to half a million plays on Spotify. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)
