Quick Friday Grab Bag

BoatThe Tallest Tree (Dundas) – Soundcloud | Website | Facebook

I love how playful this track is! Reminds me of Daniel Lee (of Hooded Fang)’s vocals.


Growing Old – Southern Boutique (Austin) – Soundcloud | Bandcamp

Southern Boutique is the side project of James Marshall from Austin’s Tiger Waves (who we also love here at Music Between Friends), Tyler Wharen, and Joshua Kerl. They just dropped their new ST two days ago and it’s nice and relaxed, perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Favourite tracks so far are Joanna and Growing Old.


Choose Yr Own Adventure – Sun Daes (Santa Barbara) – Bandcamp | Facebook

Speaking of sun-licked weekends, this California band makes gently frothy indie surf rock. According to guitarist Gabe, “We’re all students at UCSB and we spent the better part of our freshman year writing songs in the basement of our dorm, mostly pissing off people who were studying (???). we’ve come a long way (1 year) since then and we’re really excited to share those songs to people who aren’t currently studying.” There’s nothing I love more than a coupla loveable scamps making a mess of their dorm basement.


Into The Night  – Malka (London) – Soundcloud | Twitter

Tamara Schlesinger is the woman behind Malka, as well as the director of Tantrum Records, making her a real life #BOSSLADY.


Find Y.O.U. – TAPES () – Soundcloud | Facebook | Twitter

The bells in this track are dreamy!

Alright folks! Have a wonderful Friday afternoon! I’m off to go drink lemonade in Trinity Bellwoods and eat 5-cent candy until I develop minor ulcers.
