I serendipitously caught a stunning live set from Vancouver's Ora Cogan at Boise's amazing Treefort Fest last week, thanks to arriving at the venue a couple hours early to stake out a good spot for Grouper, who was headlining the evening's show. Cogan debuted a handful of darkly beautiful and poignant songs from her forthcoming new album Crickets, a profoundly moving collection of visceral, haunted psych-folk elegies, recorded very recently (just last month) in Philly with Tom Deis of uni ika ai. She was hands down my favorite new discovery of the fest, so it goes without saying that we're honored to premiere one of those new tracks here today. Ora told us via email about the meaning behind her ominous but cathartic single "The Light":

premiere: TOPS announce new album Sugar at the Gate, share lead single “Petals”

TOPS SUGAR AT THE GATE

We are beyond psyched to premiere the new single from one of our favorite bands of the last half-decade or so, Montreal's TOPS. "Petals" is a sinuous, timeless soft-funk-pop jam with some of the most bitingly relatable lyrics you'll hear in 2017 -- “got a phone full of numbers and a list full of names / no one to call / not much to say, anyway” -- taken from the group's stellar forthcoming album Sugar at the Gate, which was recorded in LA at a spot called "Glamdale," a mini-mansion and former brothel out in Glendale...
