New Taylor Knox EP Lines

I caught Taylor Knox at Lee's Palace with Zeus and The Golden Dogs last fall. I came away impressed with his brand of power pop, especially the tune "My Backyard", and I vowed to be on the lookout for more of his music.

Well the wait for a new release has ended. Taylor has just released a new EP called Lines. It includes some familiar favourites like "My Backyard" and "Fire" along with some new tunes. He and his rhythm section have put some live clips up. Give them a gander below.

He's playing The Horseshoe on April 23 and many more dates, so get out and see him live.

"My Backyard"


"I See Line"

"Family Colours"

The Bravery The Bravery is 10

The Bravery put out their self-titled début album 10 years ago today. It served to be a great melting pot of 80s influence and 90s hangover with nods to the 70s art-punk era. Check out some of the great tunes from this album:

"An Honest Mistake"


"Swollen Summer"

"Public Service Announcement"


Their site has an update from last year on the band member's current musical pursuits.

New Yukon Blonde tune Saturday Night

Saturday night has always been a popular subject for pop tunes. It's all about freedom from the work week, cutting loose and having fun. It's the subject of Yukon Blonde's latest tune "Saturday Night" and you can listen to the glistening, synth-laden, polished pop below. We can expect the new album this summer.
