Fucked Up - Glass Boys

By Graham White

Fucked Up’s Glass Boys is as abrasive as steel wool while being mentally stimulating and musically energizing. Glass Boys may not be the easiest on the ears, but it rewards its listeners with a highly ambitious and conceptually challenging album.

Owen Pallett - In Conflict

By Chelsea K. Palmer

Owen Pallett's new album, In Conflict, builds on his long-standing talent, and features some impressive new leaps. Come for the familiar voice and violins, stay for the synth and surprises


Matthew Barber - Big Romance

By Jessica Rinfret

Toronto musician Matthew Barber's latest release is a diverse blend of genres, coupled with meaningful lyrics. The album is emotional, soulful, and as Jessica describes, "perfect for a quiet, introspective walk, or soothing a broken heart."


River of Kings - Bleak Sounds EP

By Graham White

Bleak Sounds EP plays on the find line between melancholia and apathy, defining a mellow hopelessness that is both emotive and truthful. While tracks can be found to be repetitive at times, this is an EP that draws listeners to listen a little closer.


The Lion The Bear The Fox - We'd Be Good Men

By Charlie Dims

While the album came out back in September of 2013, we just couldn't help but write about it. As Charlie explains, there is just something so unifying about the three voices, and enjoyable in their tracks. It feels like you are listening to a band that has slaved away together for years, but there's a catch - Read the full review to find out what.


BADBADNOTGOOD - III

By Graham White

"In BADBADNOTGOOD’s third studio album, naturally titled III (2014), the trio of musicians have possibly created one of the most potent and imaginative sounds to erupt from a set of speakers. It is a hip-hop sampler’s treasure trove, full of juicy grooves and smooth moves." Read Graham's full review of this Toronto jazz trio's latest album here.


Jeremy Fisher - The Lemon Squeeze

By Charlie Dims

As the title implies, Jeremy Fisher's latest LP The Lemon Squeeze starts off with a strong kick, with tracks that will easily be enjoyed in the summer. Being his first crack at an entirely pop album, the album may come as a surprise to older fans, while conversely opening Fisher up to new a new demographic of listeners. What is created is a pop album that is catchy, enjoyable, and keeps you swaying the whole way through. 


Cousins - The Halls of Wickwire

By Charlie Dims

Garage band duo, Cousins, doesn't play around. In a world where musicians are constantly expected to give the humble, I-can't-believe-people-like-my-stuff response, Cousins takes a different approach. Quoted from their press release for The Halls of Wickwire, the duo notes: "This record will change your life if you let it." Was this statement too bold? Charlie writes.


Jerry Leger - Early Riser

By Jessica Rinfret

Toronto native Jerry Leger's latest release, Early Riser, is a diverse, groovy album that maintains a cohesive, bluesy sound. Leger's vocals, while soft on more upbeat rock tracks, soar through the ballads with a mournful feel.


Chad VanGaalen - Shrink Dust

By Morgan Berna

Created to accompany the upcoming animated sci-fi cartoon Translated Log of Inhabitants, Shrink Dust gives listeners a glimpse into a calmer, more serene aspect of VanGaalen’s mind. Widely claimed as being VanGaalen’s country album, Shrink Dust couples acoustic guitar and ethereal vocals with the occasional harmonica. Yet, will this simplified version of VanGaalen's music bode well with fans? We think it will.


Timber Timbre - Hot Dreams

By Morgan Berna

With lyrics like, "I want to follow through, follow through on all my promises and threats to you, babe," Hot Dreams is a hauntingly poetic album. Smooth vocals sing dark lyrics, creating a complexity that is both wonderful and devastating. However, did Timber Timbre go too far and cross the line? Morgan writes.


Kevin Drew - Darlings

By Vaughn Fjetland

Dripping in over-the-top sexuality, Kevin Drew's Darlings is an enigma; a quizzical blend of comedic vocals and intense instrumentals. The album is comedic, hypnotic, and strange. Did it live up to what we'd expect from a Canadian legend? Vaughn writes.


Tokyo Police Club - Forcefield

By Connor Young

The junior release by Tokyo Police Club is leaving listeners feeling upbeat. With an immersive pop feel Forcefield is the perfect album to blast on a hot summers day. While we can't guarantee the lyrics and themes of the album will be overly emotive, there certainly aren't any bad songs to be found here.


Trust - Joyland

By Brendan Tuytel

Follow ups are fickle. The saying “sophomore slump” exists for a reason and the pressure of releasing something with new, greater expectations can be daunting. Trust’s debut, TRST, still stands out as one of the most exceptional electronic releases of recent memory. So, was Joyland able to top TRST or were we left disappointed?


The Royal Oui - S/T

By Jasmine Proctor

Vancouver duo, The Royal Oui, came out with their debut full-length album February 11, 2014. This folk album is best enjoyed while spending hours in a large leather chair, sipping a warm drink, and letting the day slip away. While it is a great folk album, something about The Royal Oui makes them stand out from other Canadian folk groups and new Geyser Music writer Jasmine is here to tell us what that is.


Mounties - Thrash Rock Legacy

By Morgan Berna

Thrash Rock Legacy is quickly gaining popularity with Canadians, however I’m not too sure it is with me. I’ve been having mixed feelings with this album and I’ll explain why.


HIGHS - S/T EP

By Jessica Rinfret

The self-titled EP from HIGHS, released in July of 2013, is fun, up-beat, and has a slight surfer-beach vibe. We’re loving the whimsical lyrics and varied yet cohesive sound, and can’t wait to hear what they’ve got to offer us next! Click the link to their website for a free download of Nomads!
