It’s finally hot outside here in Toronto, time for a summery and fun song that will brighten your day. Easy Love is a band from California that is on Burger records. Honestly, those two facts should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect.

Here’s the song, listen to it.

Song Of The Day: Ha Ha Tonka – Race To The Bottom

I don’t know if any other bands are competing in the very specific category of whimsically witty, geographically themed names, but Ha Ha Tonka‘s killing it in my book. Originally named “Amsterband”, the indie rockers are named after the Ha Ha Tonka state park in Missouri, a nod to their southern roots.

The band is coming to DC9 on June 14th to share their emotionally charged, narrative driven, southern-indie rock with the District. Give them a listen and then check them out in person.

Ha ha Tonka’s latest, Heart-Shaped Mountain, is out now on Bloodshot Records.

Yi is the collaborative effort of Jordan Allen of Rolemodel and Jesse Crowe of Beliefs.

The pair started writing together in winter of 2015 and the end results were a pair of EPs, fittingly titled EP1 and EP2. According to band’s bio, EP1 embodies “the quiet of winter pushing forward into the waking of the spring,” which seems a fairly accurate description of the Dinosaur Jr-esque “Not So Dead.” Meanwhile, EP2 will deal with “the frantic energy autumn presents.” EP1 will be released April 14th via Hand Drawn Dracula.

Yi will be playing the Silver Dollar on April 20th alongside Teagan Johnston ,Luna Li, The Seams, Japanese Breakfast, and Heaven For Real.

I managed to catch Montreal’s Caveboy for the first time during last year’s Canadian Music Week where they managed to impress with an energetic live show and their atmospheric yet danceable electro/dreampop sound. Since then, they’ve played a whole bunch more shows, including appearances at Pop Montreal, CMJ, SXSW. Hillside, Pride Toronto, Osheaga, and Rifflandia.

The band have returned for another CMW and will be playing The Silver Dollar as part of the NeXT POP MTL @ CMW showcase on April 19 (I’m still processing the fact that the Dollar is almost gone) as well as a show with Ria Mae at Adelaide Hall on April 21.

Check out the video for “Monochrome” below:
