Releases 14 August 2015 copy

This week we have five albums and an EP to talk about. Six colours appear: red, grey, black, yellow, purple, and brown. Saddle up for album red. The Bloodred Yonder is a fine outlaw county work from Vancouver’s Ben Rogers who is also a film and TV actor. Album grey, Go On, offers some pleasant singer-songwriter tones by Halifax’s talented Paper Beat Scissors. Album black is a various artists compilation featuring some of Quebec’s maestros of hip hop, entitled La force du nombre 2. Album yellow, Morning World from Abbotsford, BC’s Teen Daze (i.e. Jamison Cox), puffs up a dreamy, alternative world which is very diggable. The purple album we reviewed previously: Toronto metal band DiemondsNever Wanna Die. Finally, the brown EP is The Fifth by Toronto’s Birds of Bellwoods, a highly skilled folk quartet.
