Editor's Picks: Our seven favourite performances and discoveries at Canadian Music Week (CMW) 2015.

At festivals like Canadian Music Week, bands from around the world try and impress fans and industry alike in sets around the city of Toronto that rarely last for more than 30 minutes. With hundreds of bands playing, no one journalist would be able to see everything on offer. But our man on the ground - Larry Heath - certainly tried - as he jumped from venue to venue over the 4 days he attended. Here now he counts down his seven favourite performances from the week (counting performances from May 6th to 9th). The end result is a mix of expected favourites and new discoveries. Hopefully you'll find something new, too...

Album Review: Snakadaktal - Sleep In The Water (2013 LP)

The cover art of Snakadaktal's debut LP Sleep In The Water is so beautiful in its minimalism, depicting a body of water disrupted by subtle waves and riffs. Like its visual, the title, although initially alluding to a feeling of tranquility, hints at something more sinister. These conflicting connotations are further addressed in the album, a paradox of lightness and darkness that marks Snakadaktal's debut as one of my favourites this year.
