Vancouver artist JP Maurice has shared a free stream of ‘Rocket’ from his forthcoming album Boys, out on May 18.
It’s the follow-up to his 2017 EP Girls. Maurice started work on the album four years ago at The Trailer, a small studio in Toronto.
“Many of the songs were reworked or even scrapped for newer, stronger, or more appropriate tunes,” he said in an e-mail. “And this all culminated in recording sessions in Vancouver in the Summer of 2016 with producer/mixer Russell Broom at Blue Light Studio, which I luckily had become a partner in after successfully taking home 2nd place in the final edition of The Peak Performance Project. 15+ songs were recorded and it was decided to break the album up into 2 parts which became the Girls EP and Boys LP.”
Maurice released Girls after his 2013 debut The Arborist, streaming for free via his Bandcamp;
The track ‘Go’ can be found on both Girls and Boys. Check out the video for the track;

Michael Seyer had this to say about his latest album Bad Bonez in an e-mail; “All my music is pretty personal, actually. But I think with this new project, I have a lot more recording experience and I really tried to hone in on the writing.”
He wrote and recorded the album in his bedroom. The beat-driven collage is a departure his previous outings. Seyer is also a member of up-and-coming band Bane’s World, who are scheduled to play Coachella.
Stockholm artist Bladee has shared the Daniel Swan-directed video for ‘Dumpster Baby’.
The track is taken Drain Gang‘s (Bladee, Ecco2k, Thaiboy Digital and Whitearmor) first joint album D&G. The clip’s dreamlike visuals find Bladee standing cliffside during a thunderstorm. The video was shot during the night which only adds to the other worldly feel.
The self-deprecating love song was produced by Whitearmor.
Drain Gang also offered up a free stream of D&G;

Baby!, the latest project from Kaley Honeycutt, has offered a free stream of her debut album Sunny F.L. as well as the video for ‘Bite My Tongue’.
Everything in the video is Honeycutt’s handiwork, right down to the backgrounds.
The name Baby! comes from something she was always shamed for growing up; being the 5’1 younger sister to four older brothers who always overshared and was oversensitive. It’s a shortened version of “Crybaby”.
Honeycutt was quickly snapped up by Yellow K Records after she shared some music online. Baby! will play an album release date on August 30 in Boston;
8/30 – Boston, MA @ Middle East Upstairs (Album Release Show!)
