The band Across Tundras is a group of musicians who have actually been able to successfully construct their own fusion of music which is simultaneously seamless and creative. This past April the band released their latest LP, Electric Relics, via Neurot Recordings.

Producer Fred James and blues singer Mary-Ann Brandon have teamed up to release a collaborative album entitled We Belong Together; which is due out in July 2011. The title track is an apt indicator for the rest of the album; it’s pleasantly smooth-sounding, but on the whole, really quite dull.
Sprouting from Montreal’s back alleys, Emery Street has grown and morphed from a simple four-piece into a multilayered gutter orchestra.

The eight tracks on the debut album by The Villains is a look into the eyes and hearts of a band with real life stories to tell. From the breezy optimism of “Let’s Forget About It Tonight” to the reflective musings of a band on the road in “Going Deaf For A Living”, The Villains weave a seamless backdrop of rock, pop and country that speaks to the soul. The sound is fun and reflective… they think you’ll agree.
