Daniel Benjamin aka Moon King follows up last summer's Hamtramck '16 with a slinky, slightly uneasy dance-pop jam, featuring the great David Carriere of TOPS on guitar. There's a pensive, disillusioned vibe to "I've Stopped Believing", which deals with Daniel decamping from Toronto to live in Detroit's Hamtramck neighborhood after feeling let down by his suddenly unrecognizable hometown. He tells us about the track:
Ebhoni is a young singer/songwriter from Toronto I came across a few months ago, when she self-released a collection of tracks to SoundCloud called Mood Ring. As I brought up to her during our chat, though there’s a lot of really good music coming out of Toronto right now, the shadow OVO and XO casts is rather large...

"here comes the light
that i've desired
drowning the dark
why do i feel so terrified"
Toronto's Scott Hardware (fka Ken Park) shares his elegantly shadowy new single, taken from his forthcoming Mutate Repeat Infinity cassette, out next month via Montreal's Banko Gotiti Records.
