The Actual Goners - Roots Rock Duo "Coricidin Bottle Blues"

The Actual Goners are a roots-rock duo who now call Toronto home. Originally from Vancouver Island; these two songwriters are influenced by the likes of Wilco and Bruce Springsteen. You can definitely hear the Springsteen in their latest track “Coricidin Bottle Blues” with the subtle synth track that follows along with the rest of the instruments. Also reminds me of The War On Drugs in a way. This track as well as “Wide Awake” were recorded at the Henhouse Studio in Nashville with Steve Dawson. “The Henhouse Sessions” is available now on all platforms. See them live at The Piston on May 16th with Bywater Blues and Sean Pinchin. – Kris Gies

The duo of Genevieve DeGroot and Jon Cox, a.k.a. Sadurn, recently released an EP Gleam, via Dead Definition Records. Delicate, acoustic guitar and ukulele accentuate DeGroot’s impassioned, silky vocals. Bedroom-folk songwriting addresses personal concerns, while simultaneously capturing a soothing, daydreamy quality and captivating calm. You can find the pair this evening upstairs at World Cafe Live as part of a lineup that also includes Mother Moses and Americanadian.


New Track: "2 Years" - Roz

A bedroom-folk/twee vibe adorns Roz's "2 Years". Candid lyricism describes a communicative disconnect and the frustration that results. "Its okay if I walk home in the cold" - the narrator suggests an impasse has been reached. The only question is: What happens next?


Hailey Whitters releases video for new single "Ten Year Town"

The music industry can tear you up. If it does, you either get out, or you go all in. (In some cases, you throw caution to the wind, start your own label, and send hundreds of emails a day booking shows or hawking albums.) Hailey Whitters knows this all too well, as she chronicles in her new single "Ten Year Town". The song, which comes from her upcoming self-financed album The Dream, talks about her life in Nashville over the past decade as she's tried to make it in the music world, with every failed single, radio station rejection letter, and empty venue giving her the drive to keep going. "Ten Year Town" is a stripped-down and honest song about how raw trying to live creatively can make a person, but it also explores the idea that no matter how hard it gets, there's always a little bit of hope left over. Take a look at the video for "Ten Year Town" below, and stay tuned for the release of The Dream later this year. - Will Sisskind
