To encapsulate the career of Montreal-based harpist Sarah Pagé, one would have to draw long, constellation-like shapes across genres, borders and histories. While perhaps best known as a founding and longtime member of roots rockers The Barr Brothers, a brief consideration of her resume reveals the fact that she’s equally at home within traditions as without them.

Her first solo LP, Dose Curves, affirms this versatility and reveals Pagé as one of Canada’s most accomplished experimentalists. KEXP premiered the first single last month and we’ll be sharing that music with you soon.

Taking their hits straight to vinyl, Sleepless Nights announce 7″ for their two latest singles.

Featuring the fuzzed-out rocker “Kids On Drugs” on one side, and the four-on-the-floor Cars-esque “Pink Popcorn” on the other, these singles find Sleepless Nights leaning hard into a heavy dose of classic rock influences without compromising their tongue-in-cheek narratives and catchy-as-hell rippers.

Earlier this Spring, between launching singles and prepping for the launch of their forthcoming album, Sleepless Nights also covered the classic BA Johnston track “My Heart Is A Blinking Nintendo.”

The record comes on the heels of a recently announced showcase at Canadian Music Weekalongside another Toronto performance this summer.
