Juicebox Recording Co. - JB029 & JB030
The Toronto-based JBRC are offering their latest free/PWYC downloads on their website, marking the labels 29th and 30th releases respectively. First, Cobourg, ON's Gentlemen Husbands have a 6-song EP entitled Mirror Doll Business (JB029), which is phenomenal by the way, and continues the bands throwback to classic rock and roll. Next is the rock band, Currents from Ottawa, ON, who are offering up their latest 7" Eastern Mass (JB030) as a digital release. [JB029 - Gentlemen Husbands] [JB030 - Currents]

BlogTO Indie Exclusive: Bellevue - "What You Want When You Want"
This week's exclusive download comes from Toronto four-piece Bellevue, a pop rock outfit about to release their third album entitled What You Want (official release party Novembe 5 at the Silver Dollar Room). Though the lyrical content of What You Want might not be anything new dealing mainly with break ups and make ups, it's the catchiness of the music that makes it unique and stand out. See for yourself in the band's track "What You Want When You Want". ([MP3]
