WEST TRAINZ BY ERIK WEST MILLETTE
When it comes to scoring music for film and theatre, Erik West Millette is the man. He has worked on over 50 albums and collaborated on projects with a number of A-Listers, including Richard Séguin and Nanette Workman. Having been fascinated since childhood by trains, he completes his magnum opus, a 2-disc dedication to all things choo-choo. Spiked into the music are samples from train stations, train whistles, and more. He and his group will be performing some of the … tracks … at the International Jazz Festival in Montreal. iTunes

PIVOTAL BY KAYD (EP)
Quite possibly the best EP of the year to date, Pivotal is the stellar debut from Niagara Falls rookie rocker Kayd. Well-constructed songs abound with a presentation that continues the legacy of the genre ignited by the Headpins and Toronto. Kayd is a treasure beneath the waves waiting to be discovered by the masses. She cites Janis Joplin, Paramore, and Chantal Kreviazuk as influences. Don’t miss out on this ripper of an EP!  iTunes

SLUDGE POP BY ULTRAPTERODACTYLE (EP)
This is a post garage punk trio from Montreal holding a fondness for loud guitars and dinosaurs. The group began in 2008 bonding over Seinfeld and Twin Peaks. Those who like a raw sound augmented by some hooks and surprises will enjoy this fun sludge-pop effort.  iTunes
