It's April and... there are scattered flurries in the forecast. Seems like a good time to stay inside and watch some new music videos from Manitoba artists. In the last few days alone, there have five new video releases...
Imaginary Cities' live video of new single "Chasing the Sunset" heralds the band's upcoming new release, Fall of Romance.
After three tours of eastern Canada and the U.S. and a spot at Canadian Music Week last month, indie rock outfit
Salinas debuts its video (and, er, drummer) for new single, "Elation".
Lost Weekend premiered its new CGI video for its latest single, "Let Me In", on BestNewBands.
Crank your volume and watch this new video for "Country Culture Complex" from Juno-winning noisecore trio
KEN mode, which is currently taking over the world with its latest recording, Entrech.
Indie pop act
Indicator Indicator kicked off the month with the release of its new, self-directed video for "This Place is a Factory" off its self-titled debut EP.
