Whitehorse: Sweet Melissa Jean (Six Shooter Records): The ever-prolific and shape-shifting duo known as Whitehorse returns with another winner.

Sweet Melissa Jean is the third track to complete the set of bonus cuts from the acclaimed 2017 Panther In The Dollhouse album.

The song is slow and stately, with Melissa McClelland's pure and haunting voice accompanied by the familiar resonant and bold twang of Luke Doucet's guitar. The production work of Gus Van Go and Werner F is clean and focused.

A press release aptly calls the cut "Perfect for late, late night backyard summer stargazing and anything by candlelight." The fact that a 'bonus' track is this good speaks volumes about this duo's deep talents.


On June 15, Whitehorse plays one of its most prestigious gigs yet - Whitehorse Orchestrated with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, at Roy Thomson Hall.

The Weeknd Spotted at Kendrick Lamar's 'Pop Out' Concert in Los Angeles

Unlike former Toronto Raptor DeMar DeRozan, the Scarborough-born artist never got onstage, but he was in the audience of the show that featured Drake diss tracks 'Not Like Us' and 'Euphoria.'

Kendrick Lamar took over the internet last night (June. 19) with his "Pop Out" concert live-streamed on Prime Video from the Kia Forum in Los Angeles. If it wasn't clear Kendrick had won public opinion in his beef with Drake, it was when the stage united cultural figures from L.A. — from up-and-comers to legends like Dr. Dre, basketball stars like Russell Westbrook, even someone Drake name-dropped in one of his diss tracks, DJ Mustard — to dance along to the scathing "Not Like Us."

DeMar DeRozan, the beloved former Toronto Raptor who was once close enough to Drake that he spilled the beans on an upcoming mixtape joined fellow L.A.-born NBA player Westbrook onstage at the Forum during "Not Like Us."
