“Crazy” by Taming Sari // The Ottawa-based rock band Taming Sari is not new to this blog, having melted our faces off with this live concert taping for the Encore Ottawa series at Shenkman Arts Centre this year. Their latest release stays true to the band’s Southern Rock sound (recommended if you like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Alabama Shakes, Kings of Leon). Those who like it will like it a lot! [Instagram]
“Danse avec moi” by DJ Unpier and Cindy Doire // DJ Unpier racked up a lot of Spotify plays for his 2018 remix of “Danse” by Cindy Doire… That makes “Danse avec moi” (Dance with me) an appropriate title for the artists’ latest collaboration for which DJ Unpier provided the beat, and songwriter Cindy Doire penned the lyrics. It’s the latest release on Bienvenue Records, which was founded by DJ Unpier and Kenan Belzner to promote francophone pop music made in Canada. [YouTube]
