Public Animal: 20th Century Strategies
Bar none, Public Animal is one of the best rock and roll bands in Ontario right now.
20th Century Strategies shows off everything that makes them great: fluid, ripping guitar lines, searing keys, and some phenomenal vocal interplay.
I’ve you’ve ever loved a Deep Purple track, you owe it to yourself to listen to Public Animal.
Morgan Cameron Ross: I Won’t Live Until I Die
You might remember Morgan Cameron Ross from Bellwoods, a group that got some pretty substantial radio play a couple of years ago.
That project was pretty firmly rooted in the pop mold, while this track is much more of a modern folk tune.
It’s sparse and simple, but that’s all it needs to be. The vocal melody here totally carries this track.
Mad Ones: End of You
End of You is from Mad Ones’s new record Regretless, which is out on March 3.
This tune kind of has that garage-y, Jet vibe to it.
Good luck getting this out of your head once you listen to it.
