Imagine Nick Drake cheering up a bit and meeting Beck. That's the sound of Colour Film, the new identity of Hamilton's Matthew de Zoete. Blending pop and folk, Colour Film debuts with Super 8, an EP that sets six cinematic songs in an atmospheric soundscape conjured with producer Les Cooper (Jill Barber, Good Lovelies). Tapping a vein of sincerity, Colour Film shines a light on old friends, new families, and waking up on the right side of the wrong bed. The songs come alive on the big screen behind your eyes.

RIP David Bowie...a boundariless art-maker and inspiration. Always want to make work the way he did; dip your toes in everything and unfurl expectations. Xoxox

David Bowie's last release, Lazarus, was 'parting gift' for fans in carefully planned finale

The producer of Blackstar confirms David Bowie had planned his poignant final message, and videos and lyrics show how he approached his death

Bent by Elephants & Sarah DeCarlo//doors at 8:30

++Bent By Elephants++
came together in Montréal in 2009, when Luke Fowlie and Chesley Walsh met a party and started talking about music. Chesley was a songwriter from Los Angeles looking for collaborators, and Luke was a classical guitarist with connection in Montréal improv and jazz. Together they released their debut LP in 2010, This Is Water. The album embodied the band’s unique approach to songwriting, traversing a musical landscape from minimalist lines of melody to overlapping cacophonies.

++Sarah DeCarlo+++
Sarah DeCarlo is an artist and musician from Peterborough, ON. This is her first album which shows her diversity and songwriting abilities. With many upbeat catchy tunes the album moves across the spectrum of emotions and intensity and offers the listener a vast pallet of sounds to enjoy.
