Begonia - Fear - Rex Baby Records Canadian New

Released Friday, September 13, 2019

She wrote and co-produced the record with a familiar team: Matt Schellenberg and Matt Peters of Royal Canoe, along with Marcus Paquin, who has previously worked with The National, Arcade Fire and Local Natives.

Begonia, who is Alexa Dirks, is based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She had made a name for herself in local circles for her work in ensembles like the Juno-winning Chic Gamine. But in 2016, she stepped forward, redubbing herself ‘Begonia’ and signalling the blossom of a dynamic and intriguing artist: a glittery supernova who felt like music’s best-kept secret.
Fear is her debut album.

Lessons in Crime - The Answer Doesn't Exist Canadian New

Lessons in Crime is band from Ottawa, Ontario comprised of two fellas named Liam Schwisberg and Paolo Pace. Some have called them "Alternative-Orchestral-Synth-Pop-Dark-Rock," and others have called them a couple of cool dudes. It was them. They called themselves that. But some have agreed. And they swore they would stop writing in the third person. But here they are.

The Souljazz Orchestra - Chaos Theories Canadian New

The Souljazz Orchestra return with a brand new studio album for our troubled times, ‘Chaos Theories’, released on Strut on 13 th September. Always known for their uncompromising social and political messages, the Canadian collective hit harder than ever on 9 new tracks, outing the hypocrisy of modern day politics, police brutality and the everyday struggle of the working man. Led by chief songwriter and arranger Pierre Chrètien, the band continue to evolve their sound, drawing on a broad palette from their trademark Latin, Afro and Caribbean styles to some of the UK’s political sounds of the early ‘80s, the era of The Clash, The Police, 2-Tone and frontline reggae. "We were basically messing around with the idea of creating our own brand of 'Afro-punk'”, remembers Chrétien, “something with the aggressive, in-your-face energy of punk rock or free jazz, but still backed by the hypnotic, pulsating grooves of tropical music." The album takes the listener from carefully targeted sonic missiles to more reflective thought-provoking moments. ‘Police The Police’ starts the offensive: “I wrote this after my neighbour was beaten to death by Ottawa police during an arrest,” explains Chrétien. “The authorities downplayed the incident and the officers were working the next day like nothing had happened.” ‘House Of Cards’ takes a thinly veiled swipe at the current US administration on an infectious disco groove: “lies within lies within lies… like so many Russian dolls”; ‘Boat Rockers’ challenges us all to look beyond accepted norms and ‘General Strike’ documents the frustrations of
the working class as the pay gap gets increasingly wider; ‘Slumlord’ shines the spotlight on dodgy landlords while the brilliant closer ‘Well Runs Dry’ laments modern day living, with its confused pace and mundane obsessions, remembering simpler days gone by.

Hi folks, Can’t wait to hear your show. Can’t wait to hear Jeff’s thoughts about the LRT. I was one of a test group of blind/low vision people who rode it before it opened. They have really paid a lot of attention to accessibility. I tried it again yesterday and can manage just fine.
