Selected New Releases Mid July 2017

Due to new releases trickling in during the summer months, we have combined new discs from last and this week.

We begin with Country, Music from Ontario’s Joey Wright. The comma is important here, as the album is more of a singer-songwriter affair. Joey is a JUNO nominee. His Jalopy was up for Instrumental Album of the Year in 2008. The new album goes for a mostly relaxing feel and is quite good.

A fellow JUNO nominee is Burlington punk group Silverstein which releases Dead Reflection. As you might guess, this one is not for relaxing.

Let’s make it three with the JUNO nominees. Album Times Infinity Vol. 2 follows 2015’s Vol. 1 from Montreal alternative group The Dears.

When I Get Better is the impressive debut LP from Vancouver’s Sarah Jickling and Her Good Bad Luck. The pop album, a little quirky, a bit theatrical, chronicles her own path in trying to deal with disorders of the central nervous system.

Dundas, Ontario JUNO nominated Daphni, a project of Dan Snaith, contributes 28-track dancey electronic album Fabriclive 93.

Toronto’s allie is getting rave reviews (count us among them) for her deep, rich, electro R&B/soul album Nightshade, a stunner.

Duo Goldtop from Edmonton launches alternative disc You Possess Me for those who like something with a variety of flavours.

As far as EPs go, Benoît Martin‘s three track disc Ailleurs presents beautiful heartland pop. Rap enthusiasts can check out 20/20 from Winnipeg’s Dele O. And finally July Talk’s Josh Warburton teams up with a producer to create side project White Hot Guilt, a pop-rock self-titled EP.
