Quieter Fireworks: Boy Golden Shares “Your Love (Where It’s At)”

Listen // Watch 

New Album For Eden Arrives July 19, 2024 

RANGE Cover Story Out Now  

 

In “Your Love (Where It’s At),” Boy Golden expresses his strongest emotions with his gentlest acoustics. The song puts words to the feelings of being grateful for, fulfilled with, and even made courageous by someone’s love. From forthcoming For Eden, the strums are soft like the glow of last light, as day shifts to night in a swirl of pinks and purples. Recorded to cassette as was the album as a whole, “Your Love (Where It’s At)” is about what’s essential, told with the barest necessities. Accompanying the release is a tender acoustic video that honors the intimacy of the song.  

Of the song, Boy Golden muses, “I write songs to help me understand and articulate concepts and feelings that I cannot unearth through any other means.  This is a simple song that helped me explore my relationship with my version of God; a notion that I have a hard time expressing in any other way, except very simply: love keeps me warm, keeps me safe, is all I need. Love is always there for you. Love has got your back. There is nothing to know, no one to ask. You can trust that love will show you the way.”

 

For Eden arrives at an exciting time in Boy Golden’s world, as he readies for his second headline tour of North America this fall. 2023’s EP For Jimmy and his debut, Church of Better Daze, have put Boy Golden in the company of the rising stars of indie folk artists blending everything that’s good, like Faye Webster, Sierra Farrell, and Madi Diaz.   

 

Boy Golden appears on RANGE Magazine’s digital cover for July. Read the full feature, “Searching For Eden,” here.

About Boy Golden:

 

Boy Golden is Liam Duncan and a revolving cast of longtime friends and collaborators known as the Church of Better Daze (many formidable artists in their own right) including FONTINE, Austin Parachoniak, Roman Clarke, Dani Nash and more. Boy Golden found success on his debut LP, Church of Better Days, with breakout hit “KD and Lunch Meat” hitting #1 at Canadian Alternative radio. Subsequent tours saw sell-outs across the country, a festival headline play at Winnipeg Folk Fest, slots at Osheaga, Edmonton and Calgary Folk Festivals, Rifflandia, Saskatoon Jazz Festival and more, demonstrating Boy Golden’s ability to be a musical chameleon and fit in just as well at a country festival as he does at a rock show. The last year saw the band touring across the US with the Paper Kites and Lucero, and a breakout slot at AmericanaFest in 2023 resulting in being signed by talent giant WME. Liam is also a producer and prolific songwriter, collaborating with William Prince, Leith Ross, Cat Clyde, FONTINE, and many more.

T. Thomason’s Summer of Blockbusters

“Ruinous Love,” Original Song for BookTok Bestseller, Out Today 

Second New Song Appears in Buzzy Indie Film Backspot

Toronto Trans Pride Performance, June 28 

 

T. Thomason branches out into new entertainment realms with two new original songs attached to high-profile summer film and book releases. With the new material, T. Thomason flexes his XXX (and XCX) muscles, with bigger beats and dark pop energy behind his blend of tough and tender.

 

Out today, “Ruinous Love” was originally written for Leather & Lark, the second installment of the NY Times and USA Today bestselling Ruinous Love trilogy by breakout Canadian author Brynne Weaver. Billed as a “hate-to-love dark romantic comedy packed with danger, chaos, and heat,” the series has gained momentum with rave reviews and fervent fandom, and also celebrates its release today, June 4, 2024. Performed in the pages by main character Lark, the song is now fully realized in soaring Hozier-level pathos, brought to life by Thomason and co-producers Dan Ledwell and Breagh Isabel. 

 

Listen to “Ruinous Love” here

 

T. Thomason also gets bionic in the electrostatic exertion of “Bodylimit,” a collaboration with D.W. Waterson. The song is featured in the trailer and film Backspot, Waterson’s directorial debut, produced by Elliot Page. Billed as a ‘cheerleader squad thriller,’ Backspot features an impressive cast including Devery Jacobs, Evan Rachel Wood, Kudakwashe Rutendo and Shannyn Sossamon, and has screened at SXSW and TIFF. 

 

Listen to “Bodylimit” here

 

T. Thomason will perform on the Community Stage (Church St./Gould St.) for Trans Pride on June 28, 2024. 

 

UPCOMING SHOWS:

ABOUT T. THOMASON 

 

Thoughtful and true, T. Thomason’s songs shine through the darkness in the world. Since he began releasing music as a teenager, Halifax-based Thomason has been on a journey of discovery. Lead by curiosity as his way of being, Thomason approaches songwriting as a commitment to “Say tough things tenderly,” a practice that reveals an impressive depth of wisdom, clarity and courage in the young artist. 

 

Thomason’s attentive, confident presence is felt in all aspects of his music, in songs that build from ballad to banger, in songs that balance confession, confrontation and resolution, in songs that lay it all bare. Highly recommended for sweet bbs in their truest colours, and specifically guaranteed for fans of MUNA, Maggie Rogers, Troye Sivan and Kim Petras.

 

Through artist residencies and cross-pollinated music projects, T. Thomason continues to grow into his roles as an artist, curator and collaborator, bridging his experiences in acting, songwriting and community engagement to further establish his place and voice in the entertainment world.

Introducing Peter Dreams

New Solo Project + Major Motion Picture Casting

Hear Peter Dreams for the First Time with “Keep Me Free,” out Today

 

 

 

Like an ice cube melting in a glass of lemonade, “Keep Me Free” is a recipe for summertime gladness. 

Fresh and unruffled, the song is the work of Peter Dreams, the all brand new solo project of Peter Dreimanis (July Talk), featuring fellow new arrivals MOONRIIVR. 

 

A little bit Talking Heads with a dose of John Cale in its compressed beats, keys and staccato lyrics, “Keep Me Free” cruises along true to its title in mood and meaning. 

 

Listen to “Keep Me Free” here

 

Dreimanis was recently cast in his first film role, a ‘supernatural thriller’ directed by Ryan Coogler and starring Michael B. Jordan, Jack O’Connell, Delroy Lindo, Jayme Lawson, Omar Benson Miller, Wunmi Mosaku, Hailee Steinfeld, Lola Kirke and more. The film is currently in production with reports of a March 2025 release date.

The Dead South’s Good Company Turns 10

Gold-Certified, Career-Changing Album Now Available in Dolby Atmos Edition

Headlining Calgary Stampede and Festival d’été 

Chains & Stakes World Tour Arrives in Canada in October, 2024  

 

The Dead South mark the 10th anniversary of their first full-length album, Good Company, recorded live off the floor in Regina, SK, with a new Dolby Atmos spatial audio version and collectors’ edition vinyl. Now with over 1 billion streams worldwide, Good Company has played a major role in The Dead South’s story: a career-changing launchpad for the band’s global success, a calling card for their community, and the spirit of camaraderie that unites their fanbase around the world. 

 

The impact of Good Company’s success, much more than the viral video for “In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company,” continues as The Dead South grow and reach milestones such as their Grand Ole Opry debut (February 2024). With songs such as lore-building “The Dead South” and “Honey You” and “The Recap,” Good Company is an album that remains in setlist and playlist alike, still a faithful reflection of the band’s brotherhood and signature musical approach. 

 

“We set out to record with just a few dozen live shows on our resume,” says banjoist Colton Crawford. “As a group, we decided that we wanted a very real feel to this album, so we decided to record it live off the floor. We didn’t know then that one of the tracks – a weird song with dark lyrics, only featuring banjo, cello, vocals and finger snaps – would change our lives. The fact that we’re still here ten years later, doing what we love, is incredible.”

 

Since its release in 2014, The Dead South’s Good Company has been certified Gold in Canada, Platinum in USA (single), appeared alongside international superstars in charts ranging from Spotify Daily Viral, Shazam Daily Top Tracks, YouTube Top Songs and more, and heard in major film, television and gaming projects.

Elliott BROOD Release Country Today

New Album Completes Town and Country Cycle 

Watch “C’Mon Let’s Go” Here

Photo credit: Dustin Seabrook

 

With the release of Country, out today, Elliott BROOD officially enter their Town and Country era. Country completes an album cycle that travels through familiar haunts and charges down new paths, all in the name of growth, love and family. 

 

On Country, their second album in 12 months, Elliott BROOD play on both the genre and its signposts. The trio deftly matches sounds with settings, opting for twangy, electric guitars, sad but true humour-tinged lyrics, and obligatory whiskey references to create a cross-border quilt of stories that are both personal and from characters passing.

 

Country highlight “C’Mon Let’s Go” starts up like a car engine, powered by a rumbling organ and a sense of melancholic mayhem. Alternating between major and minor, sweet, soft verses and grungy, spooky choruses, “C’mon Let’s Go” calls us on a tour of local hamlets with mischief in mind. The distorted backing vocals and guitars playfully add texture to the escapist’s tale.

 

Watch a live performance of “C’Mon Let’s Go” here

 

Hitting on southern rock moments with “Postcard Pretty” and the old Memphis waltzes of “They Never Want to Sing Along,” Country winds its way through the boundary lines at a frenzied pace then slows to gentler speeds, bringing us satisfyingly around switchbacks and through long, sparse stretches. Windsor, ON may be their city of origin but the BROOD are clearly country lovers at heart.

 

Paying homage to a few of their musical heroes with covers of “Out of Time” (The Rolling Stones) and Rodney Crowell’s “Bluebird Wine”, Elliott BROOD share pieces of their personal lives and tell their favourite tales of country and kinfolk alike.

 

Over their twenty years as a band, Elliott BROOD have earned the familiarity that’s felt on both sides of the Town and Country coin. Home is about who you’re with, wherever you are.

ABOUT ELLIOTT BROOD

 

“Doing it the hard way for 20 years,” is a badge Elliott BROOD wear with honour. Two decades on, work, life and love have taken the trio in many directions, away from their hometowns and headfirst into an ongoing musical journey through distance and time. Now, Elliott BROOD is never more at home than in the wash of distorted, evocative strings and stomps that make their signature alt country sound.

 

Elliott BROOD appeared on the cover of Exclaim Magazine in 2008 as the new ambassadors of a roots, folk rock and alt country wave that flourished in Toronto’s early aughts. The band’s arrival came with a level of buzz that launched them directly into the heart of a vibrant Toronto scene that centered at label Six Shooter Records, where they have returned to release their newest music. Their live show, a maelstrom of frenetic energy and fuzz, has brought them back and forth across continents countless times on bills The Sadies, Wilco, The Black Crowes, and many more. Their albums, meticulously crafted, detail-packed collections, have brought some of Canada’s highest musical honours and awards, including a Polaris Music Prize Short List and a JUNO Award.

 

In their twenty years, the band has remained fiercely loyal to their mysterious namesake. The stylized, imaginary character has guided the band’s travels over mountains and meadows, and through the more harrowing sides of history. Elliott BROOD has grown into a vessel for the trio’s shared history too, with new songs finding connection and communion in themes that hit much closer to home. With smile lines and guitar fingers long hardened with callouses, Elliott BROOD has been doing it the hard way, but making it sound easy.

 

Boy Golden’s “Here To Stay” Out Today!

Unlimited Smileage: Boy Golden Announces New Album, For Eden, Out July 19, 2024 

“Here To Stay” Out Today 

Boy Golden on Tour in May 

“Boy Golden has charisma for kilometers (we are in Canada)” – Brooklyn Vegan

 

With “Here To Stay,” Boy Golden introduces his new album, For Eden, out July 19, 2024. Inspired by The Bluebird, a Bukowski poem, “Here To Stay” makes it safe for the smallest, most delicate parts of us to be free. A card-carrying member of Manitoba’s ‘Friends of the Bluebirds’ as a kid, Boy Golden’s new song is both metaphysical and ornithological. The message of “Here To Stay” boils down to something very simple: sing the songs that are inside you. 

 

Listen to “Here To Stay” here.

 

In For Eden, Boy Golden searches for the best of all possible worlds. Utopic and wistful, this journey is a continuation of his “follow your art” proselytizing that began with his Church of Better Daze debut. A counterpoint to 2023’s For Jimmy, For Eden is largely a work of solitude; recorded to cassette with an SM57 in a cabin in the woods. 

 

Recorded entirely to cassette, the album’s origins – analog and off-the-grid – speak to the more personal, self-reflective mood of the collection. While Boy Golden’s favourite mountain road makes a cameo, the album’s country waltzes, banjo and mandolin-laced acoustics glow softly under the light of a pink moon.

 

From the gentle yet justified bravado of “Burn,” a sweetly boastful tune about his band’s excellence, to the tenor guitar pluck of “Three Scenes,” For Eden is the next chapter in Boy Golden’s journey. With songs like “The Way,” a folk song set in Amsterdam, the muted layers of “Never Have 2 Leave” a la Stranger in the Alps, and the starry-sky stillness of “Your Love (Where It’s At)”, Boy Golden continues his chill roll. 

 

Six Shooter Records releases For Eden on July 19, 2024.

ABOUT BOY GOLDEN

 

From stoner-boy to country-boy, blue-boy to a golden-voiced-man, Boy Golden has embodied them all. Now, as our guide, Boy Golden leads us through this next experience with kindness and humour, straight down Highway 5 and headlong into For Eden.

 

Ten stories told from his heart, his dreams and his real life, For Eden is about searching for things — like dreams, love and better versions of himself, all wrapped up in some idea of a perfect place, be it real or imagined. But Paradise isn’t an outer realm; it’s the peace Boy Golden’s found within.

 

Since his debut, Church of Better Daze (2020), Boy Golden has been immersed in the journey: one where he’s traveled inward towards himself and the other traversing the observable world. Touring for hundreds of days, spending time at home in the studio alone or with friends, Boy Golden has been writing, writing, writing. From the lyrics, to the music, to the accompanying behind the scenes stories and newsletters, Boy Golden’s honesty and clarity are magnificent. At times they magnify small wells of sadness, bringing forth the tears; other times they widen smiles, decimate guilt and fear, and others still, his songwriting eases the boundaries between folk, bluegrass, Americana and pop music.

 

A compass and a lighthouse, a roadmap and a set of postcards, For Eden forms a neat collection of experiences, remembered with tenderness and beauty. It serves as a travel companion for others on their respective journeys. It’s nice to have someone along for the ride — and someone waiting for you at home.

 

If home is where Boy Golden’s heart is, be it in the big city, tiny town, on the road or on a record, For Eden beats solidly, passionately, emphatically for a life and for love in the moments we have.

July Talk’s Remember Never Before (Deluxe) out Today

Plunge Into New “No Safe + Sound” Video 

Listen Here

https://youtu.be/WRK8_WGqu9E

 

 

Today, July Talk welcome Remember Never Before (Deluxe), expanded with two new songs, “No Safe + Sound” and “Rabbit Side.” Recorded in the Remember Never Before sessions at The Bathouse (Kingston, ON), the new songs are at home in the company of the original album, a collection that confronts toxicity with authenticity. 

In a new video for “No Safe + Sound,” July Talk’s Leah Fay Goldstein transforms the song’s tension between uncertainty and commitment into dance. Freely wheeling through space and feeling, total immersion – in movement,  water, and pure love – shows us a path forward through the anxieties of the unknown.

“Rabbit Side,” produced by Nyles Spencer, turns a campfire game into visions that blur the lines between salvation and destruction.”The song is about the myths we’ve been sold, how our passion for idolatry can often drown out the messages that make certain voices worth hearing in the first place,” says Goldstein. “The dream lives we’ve been taught to seek will destroy us if we can’t respect the actual ground we walk on.”    

 

“No Safe + Sound” Official Video

Also included on the new digital Deluxe edition are live recordings from the band’s last tour, which included two nights at Massey Hall. Watch July Talk’s Live at Massey Hall performance, just released on CBC Gem, here.

Remember Never Before (Deluxe) Out March 8, 2024

“Hope can sound like a wily guitar.” – NEXT Mag

“An equal balance of beguiling tension.” – NPR

Today July Talk share a new song, “No Safe + Sound,” found on the forthcoming Remember Never Before (Deluxe), out March 8, 2024. Produced by Kevin Drew, the song is both churning and frothy, a sea foam feeling equal parts queasy and confident. 

 

“‘No Safe + Sound’ is a series of promises. It is about greeting uncertain and imperfect futures with a willingness to show up and keep trying,” writes co-lead Leah Fay Goldstein. “The nagging divine and communal pressure that urges us to never lose hope is as mundane and as vital as the blood in our veins. You don’t tell your heart to pump or your lungs to breathe, they just do it. Yes there will be suffering, yes there will be valid reasons for fear, but there will always also be love. Love is the cure, love is the greatest assurance of all. Love is how we got here. Love is why we stay.”

 

A year after its original release, July Talk will welcome Remember Never Before (Deluxe), expanded with two new songs, “No Safe + Sound” and “Rabbit Side.” Recorded in the Remember Never Before sessions at The Bathouse (Kingston, ON), the songs are at home in the company of the original album, a collection that confronts toxicity with authenticity. 

 

In title and spirit, Remember Never Before is about intense, ultra-present-ness, a commitment to the moment, each moment, before it passes. While sourced in the album’s ethos and sound, the new songs bring fresh dimension and refraction to the project, that which is visible only with the passage of time.    

 

The digital deluxe version also includes three songs recorded live on tour in 2023. “After This,” “Human Side,” and the chart-topping eco-existentalist “I Am Water.”

Elliott BROOD Announce Country, Out April 12, 2024

Elliott BROOD Detail Town & Country, Two-Album Cycle Out In Full April 12, 2024

Listen to “Wind and Snow

 

In new song “Wind and Snow,” released today, Elliott BROOD show they’ve got plenty of lyrical tricks – and that signature high-test stomp – up their sleeves. A roadhouse classic in the making complete with its zingy rhyme of Albuquerque with Wild Turkey, “Wind and Snow” is a Diners, Drive-Thrus and Dive Bars travelogue interwoven with country quips and riffs. Sailing through states (and states of mind), “Wind and Snow” only stops long enough to gas up before it barrels down the highway. 

 

“Wind and Snow” officially ushers in the trio’s Country era, the second part of a two-album cycle that began with Town in late 2023. On its own, the eight-song Country includes songs that rumble and ricochet between emotions and borders along with two covers, the beloved “Bluebird Wine” and deeper cut “Out of Time” (Rolling Stones). 

 

With the release of Country on April 12, 2024, Elliott BROOD’s Town & Country album cycle will be twinned as one, together a poignant and playful survey of the lay of the land, as they travel it.   

 

Elliott BROOD are currently on tour across Ontario and will perform at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City, MO this month (showcase details below).
