This Week’s 5 Best Songs: Moon King, Doldrums and more…

This week, a trio of Canadian artists reinvented themselves with brand new songs. Listen to those and more.

- Jan 16, 2015
It was a big week for Canadian artists graduating to bigger stages. Also, surprisingly summery songs from a January release week. Listen to this week's 5 best songs below.

Moon King, "Roswell"

Moon King - Roswell

"Roswell" is a coming out party, a wide open six-minute journey that combines the duo's soaring dream pop vocals with a serious groove.

Doldrums, "HOTFOOT"

Doldrums - HOTFOOT

"HOTFOOT"'s glitchy psychedelic big beat blasts out of your speakers. A huge song in search of a '90s warehouse party revival. 

Young Guv feat. Jef Barbara, "The Wrong Crowd"

"The Wrong Crowd" boasts a lot of Yacht Club DNA, from the coked out horn textures to the spoken word French interlude to the funky, repeating bassline. 

Django Django, "First Light"

Django Django's return song is one that would play as you walk effervescently through a lime green forest, only to get caught in a human-sized bubble that floats you slowly across the treetops.

Hanni El Khatib, "Melt Me"

Hanni El Khatib snarls "come over and melt me like an ice cream cone" as his voice desperately pushes through the thick guitars, catapults into a pit of distorted garage rock and gives you all the tenacity you'll need to throw your overpriced ice cream at a brick wall.
