Jane's Party: Satellite

By Kerry Doole

Jane's Party - Satellite (Indie): This Toronto modern-rock band has kicked off 2019 in fine style with the release of a new album, Casual Island, featuring collaborations with DJ Skratch Bastid, Leland Whitty (BADBADNOTGOOD) and Kirty (Fast Romantics), with a strong assist from producer Derek Hoffman (The Trews, Arkells, Elwins).

The latest single from the new album, “Satellite”  has already picked up adds on Indie88, SiriusXM The Verge and CBC R2. Nothing surprising about that, for it is a well-constructed, melodic and radio-friendly tune. Call it a tale of lust at first sight: "You were there in the crowd in your Louboutins. And I won't ever forget just what I saw. With your high heels on and your braided crown, You lit that place oh it was burning down."


Jane's Party recently completed a nine-city European tour supporting Tom Odell, playing to crowds of 10,000+. The group has previously supported artists such as Arkells, Sam Roberts Band, Blue Rodeo, Stars, Lights, Lowest Of The Low, and The Sadies.

Last year, Jane’s Party members visited Iqaluit, Nunavut for the Alianait Arts Festival. The band taught workshops, collaborated with a multitude of artists and ran the festival’s "Rock School."

Jane’s Party plays a Junofest show in London on March 16, at Union 10, followed by a March 29 Buffalo gig and other Ontario shows in April. Dates here

Karan Aujla & DIVINE Debut in Top 25 on Billboard Canadian Albums Chart

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE land the No. 22 spot on this week's Canadian Albums chart with their new collaborative release, 'Street Dreams.' On the Canadian Hot 100, Beyoncé's "Texas Hold 'Em" ascends to No. 1, while Canadian pop artist Preston Pablo makes a debut.

B.C.-based Punjabi artist Karan Aujla and Indian rapper DIVINE are making moves together on Billboard's Canadian Albums chart this week, with their collaborative project, Street Dreams, debuting in the No. 22 spot.

The seven-track album, released Feb. 16, blends harder hip-hop and smooth R&B pop, the latter shining through especially on the Jonita Gandhi-assisted "Yaad." It's not Aujla's highest spot on the Albums chart — he reached No. 5 in 2023 with Making Memories, his collaboration with Canadian Punjabi artist Ikky — but it gives him some momentum going into his upcoming performance at the Juno Awards on Mar. 24, where he's nominated for TikTok Juno fan choice and breakthrough artist.
