The Weather Station Announce New Album






The Weather Station, Toronto’s Tamara Lindeman, will release her self-titled and fourth album on October 6th via Outside Music in Canada, elsewhere on Paradise of Bachelors, and will tour North America this fall. Today, she presents the album’s lead single, “Thirty,” “a song about joy at the precipice of despair.”
The Weather Station has been acclaimed for her “measured, perceptive storytelling… an unmistakable and communicative voice, able to convey hope and hurt with equal clarity” (Pitchfork). With The Weather StationLindeman reinvents her songcraft with a vital new energy, framing her prose-poem narratives in bolder musical settings. It’s an emotionally candid statement – a work of urgency, generosity and joy – that feels like a collection of obliquely gut-punching short stories.
“I wanted to make a rock and roll record,” Lindeman explains, “but one that sounded how I wanted it to sound, which of course is nothing like rock and roll.” The result declares its understated feminist politics and new sonic directions from its first moments. There are big, buzzing guitars, thrusting drums, horror-movie strings and her keening, Appalachian-tinged vocal melodies. Reaching towards a sort of accelerated talking blues, she sings with a new rapid-fire vocal style.
After two records made in close collaboration with other musicians, including Loyalty, which FADER called “the best folk album of the year,” and Exclaim!echoed with a stellar 9/10,  Lindeman self- produced for the first time since her debut. The band comprised touring bassist Ben Whiteley, drummer Don Kerr, and guests, including Ryan Driver (Jennifer Castle), Ben Boye (Ty Segall, Ryley Walker), and Will Kidman (The Constantines). But the heaviest thumbprint on the record belongs to Lindeman; she wrote the dense, often dissonant string arrangements and played most of the wending, tumbling guitar lines.
The Weather Station’s North American tour is on sale July 21st at 9am local time. Tickets are available at

BELIEFS New Album, Habitat, out September 22nd

New Album, Habitat, out September 22nd 

Share Video for ’1994′ HERE

Announced yesterday via Billboard, Toronto’s Beliefs (Josh Korody andJesse Crowe) revealed the details of their new record, Habitat, due out September 22nd on Outside Music/Hand Drawn DraculaHabitat is the third full length record following their self-titled debut in 2013 and 2015′s Leaper. Beliefs also shared the Christopher Mills directed video for the first single ‘1994‘.

Please listen to ’1994′ on Spotify HERE  
Please WATCH ’1994′ HERE 

“[It's] a love affair between human and concrete,” says Beliefs vocalist-guitarist Jesse Crowe, speaking about the Toronto-based indie band’s latest track. “’1994′ explores the relations we have to the high rises around us, as living, breathing entities.”       
Director Christopher Mills says of the video, “BELIEFS write music that transports me to inter-dimensional worlds awash with waterfalls of sounds that stir up ghosts, memories, and really weird dreams. ’1994′ is the apex of a triptych of dream-state videos that feature magick battles, flying ghosts, and impressionistic German Cabaret inspired dance performances, dipped in Yves Klein blues, and broadcast to a broken TV set.”

“Jesse and Josh brought an intense performance of subtleties that needed very little augmentation,” says director-editor Christopher Mills. “The edit dutifully followed Jesse’s lead as she inhabited the character of a caretaker of this strange ‘other place.’ I had to edit this one at a stand up work station because it was impossible not to dance while channeling the androgynous love child of Charlotte Rampling and Ian Curtis.”
Habitat was finished in an impressive 16 days, with Korody serving as producer and engineer, studio multi-tasker Leon Taheny (Austra, Death From Above 1979, Owen Pallett) sitting in as drummer and mixed by Holy Fuck’s Graham Walsh (Preoccupations, Alvvays and METZ).
“It’s a dark record, for sure,” affirms Crowe. “I feel like we were drawing a lot more from, like, me being a Goth teenager and Josh only wanting to listen to Aphex Twin and me only wanting to listen to Portishead’s Third for the last year and stuff like that. But also it was time to embody the elements of being a ‘wall-of-sound’ band with some space and the idea of being able to be quiet when you should be quiet, and you can’t do that with three guitars. There’s no space. It just becomes all push and no pull.”
Beliefs’ Habitat out September 22nd is available on Vinyl (12″ Die Cut Jacket, Translucent Red Vinyl, Printed Inner Sleeve, Includes Download Card), CD and Digitally.
Habitat is available for pre-order HERE

Video for First Single “Galaxies,” was shared this morning on BAEBLE, watch HERE

Out March 3, 2017 on Outside Music

Coast to Coast Canadian Tour

Earlier today, unveiled the video for “Galaxies,” the first single from Jenn Grant‘s upcoming album Paradise, out March 3rd on Outside Music. Shot in Toronto at Earl Bales Park by Jenn’s brother, award-winning cinematographer, Daniel Grant and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Adam Goldhammer, the video is about a shared, otherworldly experience that moves those involved from isolation to community. The specifics are best left up to the viewers’ interpretation, with visuals inspired by Jenn’s brilliantly crafted lyrics, especially the chorus: “I’m here, my love. Even when I’m standing out alone. And there’s a galaxy of us that shines and I hear ya calling me home.”

Jenn Grant shares:
“This is the first time my brother and I have joined forces on a project, and from the lights reflecting off the trees in the first shot, the images in the video echo the ones in my head.” Jenn continues, “When I sing ‘Galaxies,’ I see the story that unfolds from here. This video has become a true expression for this story of mystical transformation.”

About Paradise:
Paradise feels personal and emotive, but it was born from a vantage point of watching as the world flexes amidst great joy and sorrow. Through her lyrics, Grant tells us of the world she watches from a distance, touching on global themes like love, growth, faith, longing, sex, death and reinvention.
Recorded in Lake Echo, Nova Scotia, Paradise is an album that sees a new dimension in Grant’s songwriting with new depths of sonic beauty and melodic landscapes, touching upon balladry, R&B and electronic music along the way.
