Released today on Outside Music, Jenn Grant’s best collection of songs yet on her new album Compostela!
Last week the full album streamed on CBC Music’s First Play, garnering accolades from fans and musicians across Canada, and a glowing 8-out-of-10 review from Exclaim! Magazine which stated that “Grant’s voice — which has always been lovely — has found new depth in these mellow, soulful songs.” In the last month, Jenn has been connecting with fans on social media with a series of individually-crafted videos for each of her new songs, connecting her story with her accomplished list of collaborators including Doug Paisley, Sarah Harmer, Buck 65, Ron Sexmsith, Kim Harris, Stewart Legere, and Outside Music label-mates Rose Cousins & Justin Rutledge.
Stream the single, “No One’s Gonna Love You (Quite Like I Do)”, and check out Jenn’s tour dates in Canada below:
Now confirmed, Montreal’s newly-formed The Besnard Lakes will support the Sam Roberts Band on Western Canadian and Southern Ontario dates and co-headline on select US dates this fall. The husband-and-wife duo of Olga Goreas and Jace Lasek will be joined by two new members; replacing outgoing member Richard White on guitar is Robbie MacArthur (The High Dials) and Sheenah Ko (Ron Sexsmith, Kevin Hearn, The High Dials) will dazzle on keyboards. Another new face, Bucky Wheaton, will be filling in for Kevin Laing on this tour as Lasek affectionately explains, “Kevvy wasn’t able to get the time off. We were lucky to find that good ol’ Bucky Wheaton was able to fill the big Bears’ paws.”
Just back from a European tour that took this new incarnation from Zurich and Paris to Liverpool and Glasgow, Lasek is beyond excited to hit the road with the Sam Roberts band, “We love those guys and knew right away we were gonna do it,” says Lasek, “So in November, watch for us with the Sam Roberts Band in Canada and USA. We’re gonna get them WASTED. Xo”

We are so excited to announce the signing of Brooklyn-based Gold Lake to the Outside Music label and the release of their forthcoming debut album Years on November 4th, now available for pre-order on iTunes.
Years was recorded at La Cabaña studios in Madrid and produced by the band, engineered by Jose Nortes and mixed by Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes,The Walkmen, Father John Misty). “Working on this album with two great people was very important to us. Jose engineered the album back in Madrid when we decided to head into the studio to lay down some of the ideas we’d been having for a while,” says Gold Lakes’ Carlos Del Amo, “and then Phil came in and made it all pretty. It was an incredible experience to watch him do his magic, his 3D signature mixing is pure perfection, plus he is the nicest guy out there.”
No strangers to the road, Gold Lake have just completed European support dates this summer with Midlake and the Lumineers, and will perform at POP Montréal on September 19 at O Patro Vys and in Toronto on September 23rd, for Indie88’s Dave Bookman Nu Music Nite at the Horseshoe Tavern. More dates to be announced soon. Follow Gold Lake on Twitter & ‘Like’ on Facebook.
