Sam Lynch is a Vancouver based singer-songwriter and musician, who makes wallflower hush-rock songs that will stare you down and slow your breathing. Little Disappearance is Sam Lynch’s debut studio album, released October 2020 on Winnipeg label Birthday Cake. Featuring the work of some of North America’s most brilliant creatives, the collection of songs paints a lush sonic landscape where self-reflective lyrics and cathartic musical flourishes collide. The album was written and recorded over the period of a year and a half, from both Lynch’s basement home studio, and world-renowned studios in Montreal and Vancouver. The songs swell and recede, as percussive guitar, expansive strings, sparse piano, and whisper-close vocals invite the listener to observe Lynch’s most introspective moments, and inevitably turn the mirror on themselves.
Lime Cordiale’s infectious performances and genuine, generous interactions with their fans has made them one of Australia’s buzziest acts over the past couple of years. It’s a fact that was reflected in the Triple J Hottest 100 poll in January when Lime Cordiale was the only act to have four songs under 40 in triple j’s Hottest 100 of 2019-- a feat that not even Billie Eilish could pull off. It’s been an incredible start to the year for the Sydney duo, but the brothers would be quick to tell you that it’s been a long way to the top.
ou may have caught wind of Black Summer (Rhys Toms) when Triple J unearthed “Dark Times Bright Lights” and dubbed him “Australia's youngest producer” in 2015. How can an 11 year old (at the time) create a song good enough to air on Australia’s top radio station? Well that’s what a lot of people asked for the better part of five years, discrediting the young artist's efforts for being too rough and by claiming “ghost producers” were behind the songs. Thousands of hate comments/memes were hurled Toms’ way and it started consuming his life. Every time he wanted to fight back haters, his parents encouraged him to keep his head down and keep grinding.

Slower finds Jules trying to enjoy the present moment between past and future, yesterday and tomorrow, living and dying, “Hell and Hello,” whether he’s touting the joys of eating “Sugar All Day” (which begins with one scratchy guitar chord and includes a warm, plaintive harp solo from guest and fellow Woodstock denizen John Sebastian), pondering the onset of autumn in “Feels Like Fall,” or singing the praises of companionship in “It Came Down From Heaven,” “It’s Love” and “Call It Love.”
Present Peasant delivers a sincere & novel resurrection of rock/pop by drawing on the varied musical backgrounds of its members, including classic rock, blues, Motown, country, jazz, and classical music.
Vindicator is the first Yukon Blonde album written, recorded, and produced entirely by the band. It took shape in their jam space in East Vancouver, a cabin on Galiano Island, in a closet at Younger’s home, and in Innes’ kitchen. But this DIY ethos has always been the backbone of Yukon Blonde who are curious artists with a passion for honing their craft.

Salt Lake City based, Cardboard Club's upcoming concept EP, Hemlock, is a project they've been building toward their entire creative career. It tells the story of two people who make an unthinkable decision and, in the aftermath, their journey to find each other.
The album is a beautiful and often tender one, sometimes rooted in immersive and dreamy ambient soundscapes, it's also one that captures the strangeness of the modern world. "These themes of modern anxiety started to emerge in my songs," says Scott. "The album is sort of a post-apocalyptic love letter from the future to the present. Looking back into the past for that sense of human connection we have lost in our screen-based existence.
