Rave: Osheaga artists

This long weekend, there’s only one question everyone’s been asking: are you going to Osheaga or not? A lucky few ladies on the fourth floor are heading to Montreal for the annual music fest, but the majority of us are not and are experiencing major FOMO


Because we’re gluttons for punishment, we compiled some of the acts we’re especially bummed to miss out on. Whether you’re trekking to la belle province, heading up to a cottage or hanging around the city, we hope this playlist gets your long weekend started off on the right foot. Enjoy.


Psst: because we think long weekends are nothing without music, we’ve created another playlist for Monday. Make sure to come back here and check it out!

Rave: New album from Feist, Metals

One of our favourite singer/songwriters, Feist, has announced her new album Metals, which will be released on October 4 and we couldn’t be more amped to hear it.
The 12 tracks have inspired the creation of 12 video vignettes (five of which can be viewed right here) each featuring dazzling black and white imagery that gives fans a window into Feist’s private world of music, melody making and recording. The intimate video portraits are just as touching and vivid as the songs themselves.
Watch a 30 second sneak peek of Feist’s Metals.
Just as exciting is the announcement of her North American tour dates. Don’t worry, you don’t have to hit the refresh button a hundred times hoping that you’ll get through in time to get tickets. Tickets to her shows are on sale now and you can pre-order the album as well. Metals is available in multiple formats and downloadable, making it really convenient for fans. Awesome.

Want a complete list of Canadian tour dates? We got you covered. Also, be sure to follow Feist on Twitter and Facebook to catch the next set of vignettes as they’re released.
