album review

Kate Nash experiments with Girl Talk

Kate Nash is back with her third album Girl Talk. The English singer/songwriter returns with a new sound after her critically well-received second album, My Best Friend Is You, suffered disappointing sales.

Move and Scale is cross-generation dance inspiration

Christ vs Krishna’s third release since the band’s formation in 2009 mixes vintage rock and new wave to create songs that are unique in this contemporary music world but also radio-accessible.

Album Review: Sora’s Scorpion Moon

Over the last decade, Alberta-raised singer Sora has made a strong showing with two albums and an EP. The success of her Celtic influenced melodies and narrative lyrics only continues on her third album Scorpion Moon, slated for release Feb. 28.
