Slip~ons, Close Kicks, The Kut, Aphrose, Wye Oak - The latest adds to our New Music bin

SLIP~ons: Heavy Machinery

From Vancouver, BC, comes this "guitar-forward, power-pop band" consisting of Brock Pytel (guitarist formerly of The Doughboys), Brian Minato (bassist for Sarah McLachlan), Rob "Shockk'' Matharu (guitarist from the Spitfires) and drummer Shane Wilson. This is the title track from their debut EP.

Close Kicks: Never Gonna Give This Up

Darryl James, bassist for The Strumbellas, has just released his second EP as Close Kicks, the solo side project he launched a couple of years ago. Titled Colours, it's billed as "a celebration of the possibilities and outcomes of believing in yourself."

The Kut: Runaways

The London multi-instrumentalist who calls herself and her band The Kut just released this single, described as "a feel-good track about spending the summer outdoors." It actually was on her second LP, Grit, which came out a year ago, but that's not stopping us from putting it in the New Music bin.

Aphrose: YaYa

We add some Neo-Soul flavor to our mix with this new single from the upcoming debut album, Roses, by Aphrose, aka Joanna Mohammed. We're told she grew up in Toronto, where her Trinidadian parents owned a record store and she absorbed the sounds of Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and many others. Here she blends 70's Soul, 80's Roller-Disco and 90's House vocal harmonies.

Wye Oak: Repeat (If You Remind Me)

The latest album from the duo of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack, Every Day Like the Last, is a collection of seven singles released over the past three years plus two new songs - the title track, which we featured last month, and this one, both of which include Alan Good Parker on pedal steel.
