MSTRKRFT - "Beards Again"
Toronto's premier electronic guru's, MSTRKRFT, are back with a new jam for people to bounce to, though it's uncertain whether or not this is apart of a new album or just a one-off single for fun. Speculation is that the tune, "Beards Again," is in reference to the comeback Death From Above 1979, which, if true, is a nice sentiment. Download the track for free right here. [MP3]

Austra - "Lose It"
Fronted by Latvian-Canadian vocalist Katie Stelmanis, Austra, the Toronto-based pop trio, are gearing up for the release of their debut album, Feel It Break, on May 17 via Paper Bag/Domino. Luckily, the band decided to release a track from the album through SoundCloud in order to give fans a first glimpse of what to expect from the LP.
