The Meringues - New Pop Rock Video "Cold Nights"

Kingston’s favorite jangly pop rock group The Meringues have released a new music video. “Cold Nights” is a catchy power pop song with lyrics that aren’t as happy as the vibes of the track itself. The dueling vocals of Amanda Pants and Ted Evans give the track excellent personality and perhaps both sides of the story being told. You can see them perform live at The Mansion in Kingston on September 13th along with Jimbo and Toronto’s Pacer. – Kris Gies

Debut Cold Sweats EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The trio of Cold Sweats recently shared its self-titled debut EP. A grim, grungy intensity is immediately apparent. Releasing raw, pent-up emotions, the tension increases as the instruments rumble ahead unforgivingly. However, that heaviness ultimately creates a cathartic sense of relief.

Weekend Warrior - July 26 - 28

Recorded by Jeff Zeigler at Uniform Recording, Heatmap’s new EP Thank has found its way to us via Dimension Arts, and tomorrow night, the band will be holding its record release show at Ortlieb’s. The trio finds a balance between even-keeled, composed precision with volatile undertones. An authoritative sense of control drives the songs steadily forward, instilling security. However, jagged edges along those smooth, thumping rhythms suggest that within those calculated movements, danger and unpredictability still lies. They’ll be supported by the infectious haze of Goldenaire and the brutal barrage of frustration-releasing aggression that is Desperate Living. – Michael Colavita

Rogozo's dual album is a sonic journey worth taking, performance set for 08.02

Boston's Rogozo has a brand new double record out titled Nine Lives/Eight Lives and boy does it offer an escape from life's asphyxiating routine. The ambiance in the opening track "Nine Lives" alone is enough to relax the brain's neurons and secrete euphoria. The listener can be lost in the suppleness of the string instruments and keys that open the song and lead toward an intriguing marching drum build-up. The song then cascades the mind into a lake of majestic vocal chants, blinding drum fills, and flourishing guitars. The record continues its art-rock flexing to flash stylish guitar solos and Queen-like enthusiasm in its performance. "Animals" in particular is a cross between the most prominent rock forms of the '70s: punk, glam, and psych merge for a riveting experience. "The Psychic" fast-forwards to the '80s for an electro-tune that displays a furious pace, a smooth bassline, and charming vocal harmonies. "Red City" has a lush piano riff that contrasts with the song's aggressive tone. Rogozo has crafted a sonic journey that is deserving of praise, in its execution as much as in its creativity. The Thunder Road Music Club will be hosting Rogozo on Aug 2nd for a performance sure to be a good time. With so many tracks to choose from, we have to go with the pop-punk tinged "Dream" streaming for you below. - Rene Cobar

Brand new music from Toronto’s alt-grunge band Sedge. “Translation in Lost” EP will be released Friday July 26. The opening track “Call of the Void” kicks off with a classic grunge crunchy guitar tone. It’s a quick and rowdy tune that possesses catchy melodies along with the dirty rock sound. Sedge is throwing a “Translation in Lost” release party at Junction City Music Hall on Friday July 26th along with Baby Labour, TV Dinner and Cable Coated Nephew. – Kris Gies
