New Music: “Love Too Soon” by Born Ruffians

Pop with a cool edge and a shot of heartache is what the new single, “Love Too Soon”  from emerging Toronto based Born Ruffians will bring to your playlist.  

With the sweet voice of front man Luke Lafonde, along side fellow band members Mitch Derosier and Andy Lloyd, this latest release from one of Canada’s coolest bands sees the return of original drummer Steve Hamelin.

The video directed by alt-rock band July Talk’s  Leah Fay Goldstein and Peter Dreimanis, is set in a dreamy backstage and follows Lafonde as he navigates down the passageway telling a  bittersweet tale of a lost love. 

Pretty sure you’ll want to add it to your playlist too, so here’s a link!

playlist: HARM WÜLF’s new album HIJRAH

I am not fond of the latest music categories; they confuse me with their multi-hyphenated, trying-to-sound-cool-using-obscure-words titles.

As a result, I have learned to ignore them cause I would hate to miss out on hearing amazing new music like HARM WÜLF’s  (G. Hirsch of Blacklisted) sophomore release HIJRAH from Deathwish Inc. because I felt “meh” about the category label.

This album is perfect for those times when sugary pop sweetness just won’t do.

Hijrah is inspired by a range of artists from the tranquil resonance of Low, to the rhythmic acoustic strumming of Strength Through Joy, the ascending power of Angels Of Light, even calling to the insular/grotesque Americana of Cormac McCarthy and Flannery O’Connor, etc…

You can listen to it here on Bandcamp Daily before its August 26th release!
