2 - CHARLES, CHLOE - WITH BLINDFOLDS ON - (CD) 
MAKE MY DAY


Even before the release of With Blindfolds On, Chloe Charles sophomore orchestral-soul-pop album received accolades with its opening track, Black & White, winning the 2014 Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the Lennon Award for Pop. Sparsely orchestrated, yet characteristically lush, the vulnerable song Black & White sets the tone for this albums labyrinthine soundscape through loss, love and yearning, lust and joie de vivre with her 3 dimensional orchestral romance and a hypnotizing voice reminiscent of Billie Holiday's sultry poise, Adele's intensity, the grit of Amy Winehouse and the courage and mischief of Bjork. Raised within the unconventional milieu of her artist grandfather and the singing, song-writing women in her family, living among the forests, ponds and meadows that dot the rolling hills of the Oak Ridges Moraine, just north of Toronto, Chloe (also an accomplished painter) was encouraged to question everything and seek new ways of doing old things. In Chloe's home, things were always becoming something else, even the house itself: two century old barns torn down, relocated and rebuilt into an art school, later revamped to create an out of this world apartment complex and social hub for an eclectic assortment of creative people who delighted in "making things" - they didn't know any other way of being: the potter, the photographer, the guitar builder, the inventor, the painter, the poet, the weaver, etc. With Blindfolds On demonstrates the continuing evolution of Charles the person, her music and her predilection for invention. With this album she challenges herself and her audience to limit our dependence on the material "what is" and experience life intuitively, as in with blindfolds on, to discover "what could be". "Dismiss your fear of stumbling," Charles dares, "Let's play, let's explore!". For instance, while most of these songs have been characteristically composed with the classical guitar, and you'll savour her recognizably dexterous filigree (Hold Me, Through Your Eyes, Wool Sweater, Run Your Course, Tulip), in others, she rests the guitar to focus on her voice (Black & White, Take Me Naked, Smiling).

4 - CONSTANTS - THE FOUNDATION, THE MACHINE, THE A - (CD) 
MAKE MY DAY


Constants is an entity truly built from the ground up. "I learned how to record music with a computer, so we started with that. When it came time to put out a record, we had to start a record label" explains Constants helmsman Will Benoit. "When we started five years ago, we were trying to write really angular music: lots of odd meters with really percussive guitars and bass." Now, the members of Constants don't try to do anything - they just are who they are. The songs on "The Foundation, the Machine, the Ascension" sound mature. Focused. Effortless. After three raw, eager early releases the band has finally come into its own: Benoit along with bassist Orion Wainer and drummer Rob Motes has fine-tuned his band's distinct energy and youthful ambition into a signature sound that is Constants and Constants alone.Now, nearly three years since its conception, "The Foundation, the Machine, the Ascension", the new three part epic by Constants is finally complete. Partially recorded by Daryl Rabidoux (The Cancer Conspiracy, Irepress, Paulson) and mastered by Nick Zampiello (Torche, ISIS, Jesu), The album begins by exploring the highest highs and lowest lows of the artists involved. "I think this record is less abstract that other things we've done in the past. It's still out there and more of that will be explored with artwork and animations, butthis time, it feels more personal - there are still elements of mysticism present, but the focus this time is on self- understanding, better song writing and - to keep it angular - our own definitions of reality.

5 - FAULKNER, JAIMI - BACK ROAD - (CD) 
MAKE MY DAY


Ranging from autobiographical reflections to world-weary observations on the current political environment, the 11 all new compositions on "Back Road" run the gamut from catchy acoustic ballads to straight up rockers, framed by Faulkners guitar and Engelsens keyboards and underpinned by the punchy rhythm section of Renkema and Adams. These performances underline the fact that Jaimi and his band have been working and playing together for years and they exude that easy assurance born of total familiarity, running together like a well oiled machine. From the evocative atmosphere of 9929 Miles to the dark gospel tinged blues of All My Hope Is Gone, the catchy country pop of Like You Did Back Then to the classic rocknroll of I Cant Hold On or the duelling guitars of the title track, the songs on Back Road show Jaimi Faulkner coming to grips with maturity and pulling all the elements together to realize his potential as a writer, singer, musician and arranger. They represent his most coherent and convincing work to date.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Like You Did Back Then 02. Big Lies 03. Back Road 04. Carousel 05. Overstayed My Welcome 06. Pockets Of Gold 07. 9929 Miles 08. Fire Up Your Cylinders 09. All My Hope Is Gone 10. I Can't Hold On 11. Where Does All The Time Go?

9 - IREPRESS - SOL EYE SEA I - (CD) 
MAKE MY DAY


The anarchic, Boston-based genre-blending quintet Irepress unveils its second studio release of schizophrenic, aggressive rock, SOL EYE SEA I-a special journey through musical wastelands that leaves the listener mystified and enlightened at once. Largely an instrumental album, a rarity in heavy rock circles, the disc combines key elements of progressive rock, metalcore, jazz fusion, and shoegazing in a whirlwind sonic stew. Bolder than Irepress 2007 debut, SAMUS OCTOLOGY, SOL EYE SEA I could have very easily resulted in a confusing mess, but the bands strict attention to composition actually transforms this album into a surprisingly pleasant experiment in musical escapism.

10 - KERNOCHAN, LESLEY - A CALM SUN - (CD) 
MAKE MY DAY


I had two distinct moments as a child when I suddenly noticed the pure bliss I was in because of music. (Thank you Ella Fitzgerald and Paul Simon.) This sparked the passion in me to pass this joy on. Then after a particularly potent cup of coffee one day in 2004 I daydreamed that if I had two weeks to live I would lock myself in my bedroom and create an album with that time.Much longer than two weeks later came the birth of my first album Undulating, a collection of a cappella songs that explore the jellyfish-like mind. It was performed live by a group of fabulously talented friends in Portland, Oregon, and we called ourselves The Jellyfish Chorus. A few years later came The Pickle Jar, a full band experience of exploring different forms of magic involved in turning life's pickles into beautiful sunsets. This album has traveled around the world (including on airplane radio stations) and won CDBaby Editor's Pick of the Week upon it's release.Then came the surprise twist of creating a children's album A Day in the Life of a Boogaleeboo. It was a wonderful assignment from the gods to return to the simple and silly, and received a Parent's Choice Gold Award. In 2016 I released Dragon in the City, which is a collection of songs from over the years that I was particularly fond of. It is a wild mix of the bawdy goofball that I am, and the wounded healer journey.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Les Petits Mondes Sont Partout 02. Country In The City 03. Hurricane Eye 04. Tumbleweed 05. A Calm Sun 06. Blown Away 07. The Universe 08. Love Is A Verb 09. The Chocolate Tree 10. Wherever I Go 11. Loving Family 12. Song For Elijah 13. Old Fisherman's Song 14. A Face In The Mountain

12 - MANDELL, ELENI - ARTIFICIAL FIRE - (CD) 
MAKE MY DAY


Eleni Mandell is a supremely talented and critically acclaimed songwriter with a singular gift for writing wry, literate songs that synthesize jazz, country, folk, blues, rock and pop. The New Yorker once said: "Mandell was weaned on artists like Tom Waits and X, and her dark and sexy songs have been compared to those of everyone from Chan Marshall to Patsy Cline. She has a sometimes smoky, sometimes wistful delivery, and, more often than not, her songs take on love from some new perspective."The title track leads off the album with an insistent beat and squiggly guitar line backing Mandells tale of a late-nightMontreal rendezvous. "Right Side" is a bouncing ode to a lover, with Mandell gently listing her babys better attributesover walking bass and bright horn stabs. "It Wasnt The Time (It Was The Color)" is a remembrance of a lost lovefrom a long-ago summer that builds to a crescendo with Jeremy Drakes wall of static guitar solo cutting thereminiscence like the end of a daydream.

17 - MOIR, ROB - ADVENTURE HANDBOOK - (CD) 
MAKE MY DAY


Torontos punk-poet Rob Moir looks back at two consecutive years of life on the road with the release of his new album 'Adventure Handbook'. In the vein of timeless artists (and muses) like Bruce Springsteen, The Replacements and Jeff Tweedy, Rob's songs are honest and exceedingly entertaining to see live. Rob continues to routinely finesses clever turns of phrase in his lyrics. The opening track 'New Years Eve' shows hope on the horizon, with 'Run For Your Life' & 'Ports Of Call' illuminating the excitement of doing what you love on an unknown course.Formerly the front man for Torontos Dead Letter Department, Rob released his first solo EP in 2010 called 'This Is The Lie', then came the critically acclaimed LP 'Places To Die' in 2013 which Rolling Stone wrote in their 4/5 star printed album review, "Moir isn't conservative; there's something urgent in his songs, that are never too sure of themselves, and whose longing hasnt found a home yet. Moir sings his romantic sighing songs with punk rock folk in his heart and in addition proves a great sense for quiet singer/songwriter moment". Since then, hes toured Europe with Neko Case and shared the stage with fellow alt-folk artists such as Frightened Rabbit, Frank Turner and The White Buffalo. With past solo performances at international festivals; NXNE, CMW, BIGSOUND and multiple successful tours in Australia, Canada, Europe, UK and USA, Rob has proven his ability to silence rowdy audiences with his intimate performances, quick humour, and captivating stage presence. Perpetually on the lonesome road, Rob continues to expand his audience as he perform his songs across the world, making fans the old fashion way, one dedicated believer at a time.

21 - NEWSKI, BRETT - AMERICAN FOLK ARMAGEDDON - (CD) 
MAKE MY DAY


Hi, Im Brett Newski. I write heaps of songs and tour my face off in an effort to keep my A.D.D. under control. There are two people who refer to my style as, "American Folk Armageddon," which happens to be the name of my new record. Other people tell me I sound like the Violent Femmes, Frank Turner, Jake Bugg and Ben Kweller.In 2011, I was job-less, girl-less and band-less so I bought a one-way ticket to Bangkok and wandered around for six months, recording in dirt-floored makeshift studios in the hills of Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong and the Philippines. Lost, I moved to Saigon on a $100 motor-scooter. I soon found myself writing music for tampon ads for Saatchi and Saatchi where the creative director called me "The Vagina King of Vietnam."Back in Nam, I wrote nearly 100 power-folk songs. After two years and two albums, I choked down my final bowl of pig ear soup and boarded a flight to America. Since then, I have graduated from my parents basement and spend my time touring the world 200+ dates per year, including Europe, Australia and South Africa.This bizarro odyssey inspired songs about sweet victory, crushing defeat, fleeting freedom, losing my friend and saving my ass. I know there is light at the end of the tunnel.but then again..sometimes that light at the end of the tunnel is a train.You may like me if you like: Violent Femmes, Tom Petty, Frank Turner, Johnny Cash, Elliot Smith, Andrew Jackson Jihad, Chuck Ragan, Ben Kweller, Bob Dylan

TRACKLISTING: 01. Dirt 02. Vs The World 03. Sooner Than Now 04. No Anchor 05. Hell Will Be Better If We're In It Together 06. Santa Maria 07. The Maths 08. I Want My Best Friend Back 09. Lose Before We Gain 10. We Are All Fucked 11. Vs The World(radio Edit)

23 - NEWSKI, BRETT - LAND AIR SEA GARAGE - (CD) 
MAKE MY DAY


Posting up in the Sri Lankan jungle for three weeks, my manager Danimal and I were putting the finishing touches on a new album called Land Air Sea Garage. We were on the final leg of a 3.5-month world tour across Europe, Asia, Australia, and America, playing shows while simultaneously writing, recording, and mixing an LP. It was a completely manic, yet cathartic effort. The process tested the limits of our willpower, friendship, physical stamina and mental toughness.

24 - NEWSKI, BRETT - LAND AIR SEA GARAGE - (L+C) 
MAKE MY DAY


Posting up in the Sri Lankan jungle for three weeks, my manager Danimal and I were putting the finishing touches on a new album called Land Air Sea Garage. We were on the final leg of a 3.5-month world tour across Europe, Asia, Australia, and America, playing shows while simultaneously writing, recording, and mixing an LP. It was a completely manic, yet cathartic effort. The process tested the limits of our willpower, friendship, physical stamina and mental toughness. By the end of tour we had circumnavigated the world once over, assembling 11 songs across four continents. Finally, the album is nearly complete!Land Air Sea Garage maintains the tenets of minimalism while adding a few more layers and corners than "American Folk Armageddon."

26 - PALEY, ANDREW - SIRENS - (CD) 
MAKE MY DAY


The new direction of "Sirens" is filled with promise. And while this isnt his first foray into work outside of a band - this album is a followup to his first solo effort, "White Rooms," which was produced by Matt Squire - Paley suggests he's just getting started. "I have a cache of songs that I've been working on for a few years now in-between everything else," he says. "I've always wanted to get them out there, but couldn't find the right home for them. I guess I just had to start building it."And hes been building it steadily since late 2014. Over the past two years, in between international touring with The Static Age, hes taken time out to tour behind this project for the first time, playing shows across the US, Europe and Brazil with the likes of Garrett Klahn (of Texas is the Reason), Karl Larsson (of Last Days of April), The Lion And The Wolf, Adam Rubenstein (of Chamberlain), and Northcote.

28 - ROGERS, AMANDA - HOPE FROM THE FORGOTTEN WOODS - (CD) 
MAKE MY DAY


Hope. is a 16 track album that was conceived of and written 3 years ago, during which time Amanda explored other musical ventures, and while these songs sat and simmered in her heart and mind, the story began to unfold - revealing more to Ms. Rogers about herself than she ever expected. Amanda is always sure to let the creative process happen to her rather than to make it happen, and so once this story unravelled, she spent night and day alone in the studio and recorded every spark just as it flowed into her, creating a dark and intimate soundscape that supports the confessions of a would-be serial killer full of pain, passion, vengeance, and liberation.

TRACKLISTING: 01. All So Lovely 02. This Message Is Getting Old 03. Taming Of The Lonely One 04. All My Life 05. Serenade 06. Tiger Lily Hill 07. What You Do 08. Armageddon My Love 09. Raggedy Anne 10. A Sea Of Love 11. Get Your Heart 12. Mrs. X 13. The Best Things In Life Aren't Things To A Fugitive 14. 9 Years On The Inside 15. Leave A Light On 16. Hope From The Forgotten Woods

29 - SLOW LEAVES - ENOUGH ABOUT ME - (CD)    UPDATED
MAKE MY DAY


Quote by Grant Davidson / Slow Leaves:"Most of the songs I write are reflections on my own life. I try to write honestly about my life and where I see myself in it. Sometimes this leads to some dark realizations and so I also usually try to put something positive in my songs as well, if anything to serve as a reminder to myself that things are often actually pretty good. I recorded a lot of the record myself in my basement with a very simple recording set-up. It was important for me to produce this record myself because I wanted to get at the ideas that would come about without the influence of others in the room. That said, the musicians who play on the record often brought their own ideas which certainly made the productions stronger. As a result, this album represents my most personal work to date."

TRACKLISTING: 01. Enough About Me 02. Careless And Serene 03. How Do I Say 04. Piece Of Advice 05. Love And Honesty And Kindness 06. Slow Leaves 07. Moth 08. Chinatown 09. Perpetual Sleep 10. Long Goodbye
