    2016 sees the launch of Toronto indie band Last Hologram’s album Brave New Universe. But not before a death match with Toronto indie band Lickpenny Loafer.

    Okay, it was a metaphorical cage match. They used to be called Lickpenny Loafer. But that ran its course.

    After the progressive pop of 2011’s People Will Talk, they’ve gone in a new direction. Better name, better music. Brave New Universe is a marriage of synth-driven ’80s pop with dense rock grooves.

    "I have a way of loving too many things to take on just one shape," Jilian Medford sings over and over again on the title track of the Brooklyn-based band IAN SWEET's debut album, Shapeshifter, repeating it like a mantra.

    It's an album about losing love and your sense of self in the process, about grabbing at the little things in life that bring joy when nothing else is going according to plan. It's also an ode to the bandmates, and the friends, that see you through.
