Serena Ryder released a new album on March 12, 2021 titled “The Art Of Falling Apart”. This is Serena’s 9th album. Born Toronto, she has become a Canadian institution, know for such hits like “Stompa” and “What I Wouldn’t Do”, both top 10 in the USA and Canada, and platinum. Hit the links to refresh your memory.
The new album contains several very good tunes, but as usual, I post, you decide. Having said that, Serena is just one of many Canadian artists that have taken the world by storm and she stands with the best of them.
The first tune that I am featuring off the new album is “Better Now”. It showcases her range and her strong song writing abilities. Genuinely a song that will grow on you.
The second tune was released as a single in 2020 and is called “Waterfall”. Great song.
Another great tune from Winnipeg’s own 18 year old budding (current?) star. By my count, this is at least her 5th single. In addition, she has accumulated over a half million streams on various sites. Keep an ear on this one, she is going places. After you check this out go to the links below and check the rest of her material.
This tune “Alone” starts slowly but rises to a pretty cool pop song. Enjoy.
And now for something completely different, Swedish Alt-Country. Yes that is correct. I was going through my email and came across a promo from August 2019. Yes, I know, I’m way behind. I do keep them all though and now that I am writing (sort of) again, I am committed to catching up.
Now about the Trailerpark Idlers. They are from are from Norrkoping/Soderkoping, Sweden and formed as a group in 2006. Since then, they have released 14 albums. This tune, The Green Grass Once Again, is taken from their most recent album, Ghost Town Nights. The band lists their influences, and pretty eclectic, as Hank Williams, Chuck Berry, Gillian Welch, Bob Wills, Ramones, Johnny Cash, Nick Cave, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, Jimmie Rodgers, Rolling Stones, Ernest Tubb. I can believe it. Interesting band, interesting music. If interested, hit the links down below to find out more.
Out of Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada, Allanah is an up and coming singer songwriter with a sense for combining rock and pop. Enjoyable tune, recommend you check her out at the links below. The YouTube is her newest release, June 2020.
