New Music Friday - July 1

On this Canada Day, our New Music Friday is full of Canadian content with new album releases from Ghost Woman, Chief State, Thirteen Goats, Saint Asonia, and The Holy Gamblers. Happy Canada Day!

“Along” by Ghost Woman

Album: Ghost Woman


“Ghost Woman’s eponymous full-length feels compulsive, almost dangerous in a way that evokes the early works of the Brian Jonestown Massacre or when Ty Segall and White Fence first came together. Written, produced and mixed by Uschenko against the odds, it feels like the work of a visionary traveller who wandered out of the desert somewhere around Barstow with a Gretsch, tremolo pedal, Sears Roebuck Japanese knockoff amp, and a bag full of moon rocks.“

“22 Reasons” by Chief State

Album: Waiting For Your Colours


“After a number of successful EPs, Chief State continue to thrive as they release their longest running effort to date. Vocalist Fraser Simpson and his band mates exhibit noticeable growth on tracks such as ’22 Reasons’ and ‘Out For Me’, both of which are featured in impressive music videos.”
Spinning Thoughts

“Unholy Mass” by Thirteen Goats

Album: Servants of the Outer Dark


“Their debut album, Servants of the Outer Dark, covers many metal touchstones — arguably too many. Sporting both Deicide-like death growls and clean vocals à la Hammers of Misfortune, the epic title track has Death-styled breakdowns, while ‘Challenge the Executioner’ leans more toward Megadeth-esque chord progressions. Conversely, ‘Prisoner’s Anthem’ heaves forward on a hardcore run with bellowed vocals and melodic gang choruses while brandishing Annihilator-like thrash interludes. ‘Unholy Mass’ blends Misery Index overtones with Aborted brutality.”

“Chew Me Up” by Saint Asonia ft. Terrible Johnny

Album: Introvert


“Saint Asonia’s Introvert is the long-awaited seven-song EP from the Toronto, Canada-based quartet set to release July 1st, 2022 on Spinefarm Records. Introvert is a musical reflection of the struggles that arose both in the band’s personal life and while recording the EP during quarantine.”
Loud Hailer

“Canada Song” by The Holy Gamblers

Album: Back Out on the Strip


“Almost two years of effort went into this release. Trying out these songs in barrooms, breweries and backrooms—the songs are what people responded to the most and we can’t wait for folks to hear them. “
