By Nikayla Goddard, October 6 2016 — Mike Rosenberg, known widely as Passenger, released his seventh studio album, Young as the Morning, Old as the Sea, on Sept. 23 — a much anticipated release from the popular folk artist.

New Music: Bon Iver

By Gurman Sahota, October 4 2016 — After five years, Bon Iver’s much anticipated 22, A Million provides fans with bold, experimental sounds.

New Music: Keaton Henson

By Rachel Woodward, September 27 2016 — Since 2010, British illustrator-turned-musician Keaton Henson has crooned about love, loss and heartache.

New Music: Frank Ocean

By Gurman Sahota, September 13 2016 — After brining the world Channel Orange, Frank Ocean has finally released his second album in his much anticipated return to music. Not unlike Ocean’s first album, which was smooth in its consumption, Blonde features the familiar wordplay Ocean is known for with the rawness of simple instrumentals. Striking…

New Music: BADBADNOTGOOD

By Jason Herring, August 4 2016 — The first album by Toronto jazz quartet BADBADNOTGOOD, released nearly five years ago, was filled with stretched-out jam covers of tracks by rappers like Nas and Ol’ Dirty Bastard.
