Matthew’s Sure Shots

Rozi Plain
Prize [Memphis Industries]
asdfadsf          Rock/Pop
Slow groove indie rock with nice vocal lines and subtle use of electronic and other instrumentation.

Yves Malone
A Hello To A Goodbye [Castles In Space]
Toronto, ON        Electronic
Classic style instrumental synthesizer music  (like monophonic synths). Would be good for a game soundtrack.

Leland Whitty
Anyhow [Innovative Leisure]
Toronto, ON        Jazz
Atmospheric and cool jazz instrumentals with 70s pop and film soundtrack influence from a member of Badbadnotgood. For Fans Of: BadBadNotGood, Lil Silva, Robert Glasper, Teebs, Kokoroko

Various Artists
Mainstream Disco Funk [WeWantSounds]
New York, NY        Rock/Pop
A collection of rare Disco and Funk tracks from Mainstream Records only briefly issued on 7” singles in the mid 70s. I have liked a lot of WeWantSounds’ reissues. Good label.

Hollywood Dog [Bobo Integral/Naturally]
New York, NY        Rock/Pop
Not complicated, nice midtempo rock.



Local Adds

Up and Over Trio
Up and Over [Bent River]
