TOPS share new single “Dayglow Bimbo”
In an insane year of new music (SO FAR), TOPS' Sugar at the Gate remains near the very top of the list of our favorite records of the year. Today, the group shares another single from the album, the gorgeous, soaring, awesomely titled and wonderfully shoegaze-y "Dayglow Bimbo"...

TOPS share the Jane Penny-directed video for the first single from our favorite record of 2017 (so far duh), Sugar at the Gate:
premiere: TOPS - Petals
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 forthcom
video premiere: Bobbypin – Consequence
Bobbypin is the sophistipop solo project of ex-TOPS bassist/current Berlin resident Alana Marta DeVito. Her debut EP Sketches from a Terrace is due sometime this fall, and we're psyched to share the alluringly elegant lead single "Consequence"...
Exit Someone – “Sydney, the List Goes On”
Psyched to debut this elegant, effortlessly melodic soft-funk jam that we've had on repeat for the last week or so, from Montreal’s Exit Someone, the new project from Thom Gillies (ex-TOPS, Vesuvio Solo) and June Moon (Forever). “Sydney, the List Goes On” is the duo's first song (as far as we know), recorded at Bottle Garden Studio in Montreal, and it's a smooth and relaxed glide that keeps it jus
download HOOPS’ charming lo-fi pop tapes
Shout out to our boy Greg for the heads up on the charming and eminently listenable lo-fi guitar pop from HOOPS, which is seemingly just one of the many projects of a kid named Drew Auscherman. For our money, the songwriting is consistently as strong as the stuff with which it will inevitably be compared — Mac Demarco comes to mind — and there are legit flashes of brilliance to be found in the tap

Montreal's TOPS will descend upon Texas this fall for a handful of shows in November, including a stop in Dallas on the 5th before heading down to Austin for this year's insane Fun Fun Fun Fest and a very rad FFF Nites show (that we'll be able to share details for soon). In anticipation of their FFF show, the group put together a sweet little mix featuring some jams they're listening to at the mo
