On this week's List, we check out a new Beatles-versus-Stones track from Metric, a shockingly sunny love song from Winnipeg indie outfit Paper Moon, and a sublime, summer-in-late-March single from The Invisible, the latest Next Big Thing out of London.
On this week's list we have a preview of the upcoming album by the invigorated Victoria outfit Immaculate Machine. Ellie Goulding, a startlingly mature Welsh singer-songwriter, makes her debut and we close out with a terrific track by Omaha, Nebraska's Cursive.
Joel Plaskett, an Anti-Hit List favourite, follows up the superb Ashtray Rock with 27 songs on three discs, one of which is this simple, heartbreaking ballad of separation. We also have a Canadian song by Vancouver's Matthew Lovegrove, and the lead single from the third solo outing by Maria Taylor.
On the list this week is a preview of the follow-up to 2006's How We Operate by veteran British band Gomez. We also have music by Aussie duo Damn Arms, rising Brooklyn band Savoir Adore and Montreal singer-songwriter Jason Bajada.
If you've had enough of winter, you'll easily relate to new music by Eric Elbogen who has shortened his band name to Say Hi. We also have a preview from an upcoming album by Air France, for fans of Swedish pop, and a melancholic track by Australia's Youth Group.
Steve Cradock breaks out on his own with a wry, mid-tempo track on this week's list. We also have a preview of the much anticipated follow-up to the acclaimed So This Is Goodbye by Hamilton's Junior Boys and a second-album opener from Brooklyn's Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino./p>
Fuzzed-out indie rock hits the list this week via an album preview by Julie Doiron. We also have new music by The Joy Formidable, a London-based three-piece who make a mighty noise, and an album preview with a worthy cause attached by Neko Case.
P.E.I. native Jenn Grant takes top spot on the list this week with a striking ballad from the follow-up to the acclaimed Orchestra for the Moon. We also have new music from Montreal duo Handsome Furs, London trio The Invisible and Alela Diane, a folky from Northern California.
This week we feature new music by Franz Nicolay, better known as the keyboardist for the Hold Steady. We also have new music by Issa, the artist formerly known as Jane Siberry, Fan Death, who have been hotly tipped by the British press, and a wistful track by Toronto's Carly and Mark.
We kick off the new year with some really great music beginning with the first 2009 contender for Next Big British Thing - The Rifles. We also have new music by I Blame Coco, the London-based band fronted by Coco Sumner, a musically expansive track by Ireland's Bell XI and new music by Andrew Bird, the dauntingly articulate Chicago folk/indie rocker.
