Of the week

Zach’s Picks of the Week offers up fresh music

Well, it’s looking like a fantastic start to the week. Welcome back for the best in Canadian music from our website Canadian Beats. You can find all kinds of amazing content, concert coverage, and the latest music Canada offers!

This is my section, “Zach’s Picks Of The Week,” where you can enjoy my five favourite articles from last week. I have had each of these songs on repeat in my playlist, so be sure to add them and enjoy. You can find a link to each article featured in this post, so please visit them. I think it’s finally time we start things off. Let’s head right into this week’s brand new list of music. It’s Zach’s Picks of the Week!!


The legendary Canadian punk rockers, the Headstones, are kicking off this stellar list of new music. They’ve been teasing fans about new music, and lo and behold, they delivered what they’ve been working on. Their brand new track “Tangled” is available now to stream, and a video was also released, check it out in our article.

Singer Hugh Dillon and the band return to their stripped-down, punk-rock roots with this lament to what it’s like to repeat the same mistakes repeatedly. This new single is the first of much more to come with new music released throughout 2022. Be sure to keep an eye out for all that new music on the way, but also visit our article to check out the video for “Tangled” here.


Coming up next on my list is Toronto-based indie folk-pop artist Francesca Panetta. She’s unveiled the newest single to her catalogue, “So Few Words (Love Letter),” so go stream it now.

Loving someone intensely is both exhilarating and scary as hell. When you also throw in a tendency towards anxiety and depression, the stakes can feel even higher for you. This new single is all about this blurred line between fear and excitement. This beautiful love song came about last year. Panetta struggled with the anxiety of a new love, so she got lost in the chords on her guitar. Be sure to go check out the full visualizer for the new single “So Few Words (Love Letter)” by Francesca Panetta here.


Making it into my top three this week is Montreal-based singer/songwriter Eadsé. She recently unveiled her “Stay” single to all of your favourite streaming platforms. It was recorded and produced by Trey Vittetoe, who has worked with artists like Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus.

However, this feel-good single will be perfect for your summer road trips, so add it now. Eadsé, name means “My good friend” in Huron-Wendat, exploring the sounds of soulful pop. With strength and tenderness, she has been creating works that are both touching and powerful. Please head to our article to learn about Eadsé and her new single, “Stay,” here.


In my top two for Picks Of The Week, we will visit Moncton indie-rock band Before The Dinosaurs. They have just discovered the “Cure For A Heartache” in their latest single, which you can stream now. It’s a twinge of pain, served neat over a tumbler of acceptance. It has this Nashville feel, with “a unique twist” as it deviates slightly from their over-arching soundscape.

Don Levandier (Frontman of The Motorleague) produced, mixed, and recorded the single. The single was mastered by Harry Hess, who’s worked with groups like Arkells, Billy Talent, and Barenaked Ladies. “Cure For A Heartache” and their last single, “Set Yourself Free,” will be a part of the band’s forthcoming full-length album in Fall 2022. So be sure to keep an eye out for that new music, but also check out the brand-new single, “Cure For A Heartache” by Before The Dinosaurs, here.


Finally, we’ve reached my top pick of the week and are visiting our country’s capital, Ottawa. I will introduce my top song and artist of the week, Taming Sari. They are back with the release of their rippin’ new song about being vulnerable in a hyper-exposed world where there aren’t many places you can hide.

This new single is called “No Shelter” and is available now on all streaming platforms, so be sure to add it to your favourite playlist. This hard-hitting anthem of compassion and connectedness is a visceral reminder to cherish the people in our lives, especially during an era filled with social trauma and hardships. Please visit the article we have for the video release for “No Shelter,” and don’t forget to stream it online now. You can check out the article here.

That will be everything I’ve been listening to on repeat. Please be sure to visit the rest of our website because more amazing Canadian music is always available. Just visit our website’s main page, and you’ll see what I mean. Please tune in next Monday for my favourite songs of the week.
