    Liima is a new band consisting of the Finnish percussionist Tatu Rönkkö and the three members of Efterklang, Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg. The debut album "ii" includes songs written in Finland, Berlin, Istanbul and Madeira during four weeklong residencies. Each place has affected the sound, sometimes literally in the form of samples and field recordings, and each residency ended with a concert where the band performed the newly written songs.

    Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches. Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!

    Since releasing her debut album, Canadian singer-songwriter Jenny Berkel has been enchanting listeners with her evocative songs and voice. Both on her own and as part of Daniel Romano's Trilliums band, her consistent touring has garnered fans across the country and ocean. Born in the heart of Ontario's lush forests and fields, Berkel's music has drawn her from rural Ontario to Winnipeg to Toronto and now, finally, to Montreal. This constant shifting finds its rest in her songs: dreamy and piercing, Berkel’s lyrics shimmer with memories of childhood, place and home.

    Berkel's new sophomore album, Pale Moon Kid (Pheromone Recordings) was recorded with gifted producer Daniel Romano. Described by Exclaim! Magazine as “a smouldering sound to behold” and “acutely poetic,” this glowing new collection reveals writing that has grown even sharper and more lyrical.
