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...

MIND BATH OVER NY

Montreal artist Michael Brock, aka Mind Bath, debuts his emotional new single, taken from his forthcoming I Was Young EP, out digitally on June 17th via Olympia Records (UK) + on his own imprint Bedroom Dubs.

MB says of the track:
