3 Songs: On Repeat

Maritime – “Satellite Love” (After a four year wait since their last album, which saw Davey and Didier reuniting The Promise Ring for a spell, Maritime have returned to release their fifth album, Magnetic Bodies/Maps Of Bones, out now via Dangerbird Records.  The excellent new album - produced by the band and Brian Deck - finds the band more energetic and experimental than ever with bouncy synths and infectious rhythms incorporated into their guitar-led indie rock like on the Cure-like first single here.)          

Dilly Dally – “Purple Rage” (Led by the visceral snarling howl of vocalist/guitarist Katie Monks, the Toronto grunge-punk band recently released their highly-anticipated debut album, Sore via Partisan Records.  Their 90’s-influenced sound is noisy and heavy yet heavily melodic, blending catchy Pixies-like dynamics with a raging punk spirit and a sense of humor.)       

Chris Cornell – “Worried Moon” (The Soundgarden frontman recently released his new solo album, Higher Truth, out now via UMe.  Produced by Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen), the album leans toward spirited acoustic-based folk-rock and Beatles-esque pop arrangements which are the perfect fit for his powerful signature soaring vocal style; much better than his foray into electro-pop on Scream, his previous solo album.)
