Radio Radio reveals details of Ej feel zoo, shares title track

Radio Radio's fourth studio album, Ej feel zoo, will be available on March 18th via Bonsound. After conquering the city (Cliché Hot), the sea (Belmundo Regal) and the stars (Havre de Grâce), and thus closing the first chapter of their story, the Acadian band wanted this album to capture the energy of their live shows. These new anthemic songs will easily find their place alongside their best hits.

Until then, you can stream the title track and immediately get an mp3 of the song Ej feel zoo by pre-ordering the album now.

Don't miss the opportunity to hear the new album performed live at the launch party in Montreal, at Club Soda, on March 19th! Purchase the album + an entry to the launch on presale via laradioradio.com. Present a copy of your receipt to Club Soda on March 19th to enter and to pick up your album!

Monogrenade's Composite now available!

Monogrenade's Composite now available!

Out of the celestials comes Composite, Monogrenade’s second project, is available now via Bonsound (digital / cd / vinyl). Purchase the album via the band's bandcamp.

Pushing the electro aspect of their sound, the band makes good use of old synths and a Linn Drum. French horn player Pietro Amato (Arcade Fire, The Luyas, Bell Orchestre) adds an organic feel to many songs while Marie-Pierre Arthur's vocals beautifully complement Jean-Michel's on Labyrinthe. Composed by Monogrenade and string quartet Mommies on the Run (Patrick Watson, Karkwa, Ariane Moffatt), the string arrangements surround the eclectic pop style, creating a profound, coherent album.

Don't miss the album launch show on Wednesday, February 5th at La Tulipe!

Pierre Kwenders joins Bonsound label & booking rosters

Pierre Kwenders joins Bonsound label & booking rosters

Bonsound is proud to welcome Pierre Kwenders to its label and booking rosters. His debut album, Le Dernier Empereur Bantou, will be released this fall. Read his interview with Alain Brunet on lapresse.ca.

Pierre Kwenders is a Montreal artist of Congolese origins. Following his encounter with Nom de Plume (producer, Radio Radio), Pierre Kwenders was able to draw influences from various musical styles including soul, electro but above all from Congolese Rumba in order to present his two EPs Whisky & Tea and African Dream, often described as world 2.0. His recent participation at POP Montréal earned him a strong media recognition. He has also been quoted by ARTINFO Canada as being among the top 15 emerging artists in the country.

Don't miss his free show at La Sala Rossa on February 6th, presented by Nuits d'Afrique.

Lisa LeBlanc is awarded a Platinum disc

Lisa LeBlanc is awarded a Platinum disc

Earlier this week, Lisa LeBlanc was awarded a Platinum disc for selling 80 000 copies of her debut album, released in March 2012 via Bonsound. Strong from the huge success gained over the last year with her 2012 award in the Breakthrough Artist of the Year category at l'ADISQ 2012, she was nominated once again this year at l'ADISQ for Female Artist of the Year. Her irresistible talent has been making waves all over, even charming the French. With over 300 shows under her belt and her album released in France, Switzerland and Belgium via Tôt ou Tard last March, Lisa just returned from the old continent, where she gave a series of concerts, including a date at La Cigale, in Paris.

Congratulations to Lisa!
