Hey Rosetta!

Over the near decade playing together, Hey Rosetta!’s collective sound has been lauded as unmistakable. Tim Baker’s haunting and distinctive voice and his writing, with a lyrical sensibility that defines the band as one of the most poetic Canadian exports; the rolling indie-rock precision meeting hooky pop sensibilities, off-set by the delicate touch of cello, violin and french horn, that cuts through the most cramped club or across any vast open air festival stage.

Second Sight became a way for the now seven-member band to experiment with their sound even further. Shifting more into musical textures, you can feel building up around you in tracks like, “What Arrows” and “Promise”. The instantly resonant choruses and lyrical depth all helped arrive at an album sound that Hey Rostta! cellist and multi-instrumentalist Romesh Thavanathan calls ‘warm, yet mysterious.’

Yukon Blonde

Over the past two years, Yukon Blonde has earned no shortage of acclaim for its hook-heavy brand of pop rock. Despite the success of the group’s previous material, the musicians were initially uninspired when they set about writing like-minded new songs. Instead, the members were drawn to the fast, punk-tinged tracks that Innes has been penning in his spare time. Danceable and unrepentantly poppy, these new tracks evoked late-’70s/early-’80s post-punk and drew inspiration from artists like the Buzzcocks, Ramones and Talking Heads. "Confused," the opener of Yukon Blonde's most ambitious, captivating and strangely accessible album to date, On Blonde. Casual listeners and long-time fans may be mystified to discover that, from the outset of the album, the onetime Sheepdogs-supporting rock outfit have been replaced by a swaggering, synth-loving quartet that's more concerned with atmosphere, undeniable hooks and the maximalist expression of both, rather than the pub-thumping sounds found on their previous two LPs.
