It’s here! The latest Ponderbeat, Killbeat Music’s collaborative podcast with Laurie Brown’s Pondercast, is going to fill your summer with a buffet of brand new music.

FET.NAT begins Episode 4 by turning us upside down in “Tapis”, Badge Époque Ensemble explores a time before our current complex on “Enormous Profit”, while Close Talker hold on to the magic of a moment with “Half Past Nine”.

Montreal’s Ada Lea shares the intimate pulse of “the party”, Yoke Lore searches for comoft in “Safe & Sound”, and Tamino’s “Indigo Night” sparks Brown to compare the songwriter to Cohen, Cave, and Buckley.

Sessa’s “Tanto” subtly directs our focus to a human touch, Charlotte Cornfield pins the smallest moments in place on “Silver Civic”, while River Tiber immerses us in the sleepy haze of “Taurus”.

To wrap our episode, Begonia tries to find her footing while “Living At The Ceiling” and Jordan Klasen works to break the orbit on “Virtuous Circle”.

It’s PonderBeat time! Killbeat Music has partnered with Laurie Brown’s Pondercast to bring you PonderBeat, a series of special episodes featuring selections curated by Laurie from some of Killbeat’s latest releases.

Right off the top of Episode 3, Broken Social Scene invites you to sing along with “All I Want”, Andy Shauf’s Foxwarren bends reality with “Lost In A Dream”, and Living Hour hypnotize with “Water”.

Further down the stream, River Tiber wades through the “Deep End”, Jean-Michel Blais’ “blind” – from his Eviction Sessions EP – captures the essence of the place in which it was born, while Charlotte Cornfield shows us a different kind of intimacy with “Andrew”.

In “starlight”, nêhiyawak look to the sky to connect with the past and Lydia Ainsworth examines Mother Nature's elusive, yet powerful, strength in “Can You Find Her Place?”.

Abigail Lapell’s sing-songy “Gonna Be Leaving” explores the contradictions and complications of leaving a relationship, while fellow songwriter – and 2019 JUNO Award Songwriter of the Year nominee - Donovan Woods heads the other direction in “Go To Her”. Daniel Romano wraps up Episode 3 with a flood of emotion and energy in “Between The Blades Of Grass”.

Earlier this year, Killbeat Music partnered with Laurie Brown’s Pondercast to bring you Ponderbeat, a series of special episodes featuring selections curated by Laurie from some of Killbeat’s latest releases.

Today, we’re proud to bring you Ponderbeat Episode 2. Off the top, Begonia soulfully leads you to “The Light” while Folly & The Hunter continue driving us down the path to enlightenment with “Now I Know”. Chart toppers Great Lake Swimmers ponder “The Talking Wind”, Liza Anne pays homage to The Cranberries’ Delores O’Riordan with a cover of “Dreams”, and Dan Mangan finds the silver lining in a troubled world on “Just Fear”.

Rae Spoon leads us to the water with “I Held My Breath”, Graham Van Pelt lets us almost disappear completely in “Vanishing Point”, while Overcoats study what it means to be alone “Leave The Light On”. Seasoned veteran Chris Velan opens the mic with “Amateur Hour”, Kaia Kater’s “New Colossus” brings the past to the present, and Colyn Cameron’s “Hallucinations” receives high-praise from Laurie, comparing it to tracks from Wilco and The Beatles.
