Tara MacLean

The truly wonderful Tara MacLean has been on hiatus for 9 years creating a family.

Recently she recorded an album honouring Atlantic Canadian singer/writers available June 28th.

Atlantic Blue consists of 14 songs including “Snowbird” written by notable songwriter Gene MacLellan.



Dorothy is a relatively new hard rock band from Los Angeles.

Grizzly Bear

The Brooklyn-based quartet Grizzly Bear took a break after 2012’s Shields’ album.

Pleased that in August we will have Painted Ruins, their 5th.

“Mourning Sound” is an early morsel from the album.

“Mourning Sound”

LCD Soundsystem

In 2011 James Murphy announced that he was retiring LCD Soundsystem.

The film Shut Up and Play the Hits even chronicled the last and final concert at Madison Square Garden.

However, he and his traveling band performed at Coachella in 2016.

And we now have two new songs “Call the Police” and “American Dream” from a yet unnamed forthcoming album.

“Call the Police”

“American Dream”

The National

It’s always a pleasure to receive new music from The National.

I never tire of Matt Berninger’s baritone.

The album, Sleep Well the Beast, will not be ready until September.

But we do have the song “The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness”.

“The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness”


L.A. sister band Haim release their sophomore album, Something to Tell You, in July.

Body Count

Body Count’s new album, Bloodlust, is timelier than ever.

This L.A. heavy metal band fronted by Ice-T caused a stir in 1992 with their song “Cop Killer”.

New songs like “Black Hoodie” and “No Lives Matter” are just as profound.

How little has changed since the formation of this band last century.

“Black Hoodie”

“No Lives Matter”
