Anemone is the dream/pop, groovy psychedelic rock recording project of Montreal-based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Chloé Soldevila with boys Miles Dupire-Gagnon, Zach Irving, Gabriel Lambert and Samuel Gemme. With a penchant for melodic classicism, 1960’s pop rock, airy psychedelia and inspired by California’s waves through an open van window, Anemone is an effortless voyage with love.


Montreal’s Brigitte Naggar self-released her debut album as Common Holly last year, and Solitaire Recordings re-released it this past October. Playing House is dark, a little folky, and a little jazzy, which has gained her a few comparisons to fellow Canadian Feist (including from us). Setting her apart from Feist (and anyone else), though, is Brigitte’s delicate voice that has a power that’s all her own. Her album features the Polaris Prize-nominated Jean-Michel Blais on piano, and recent tourmates include Julien Baker and The Hotelier, putting her in good (and diverse) company. She’s a little less popular than some of the other likeminded acts on this list, but hopefully that changes soon; she’s too good to be ignored. –  [Amanda Hatfield / Brooklyn Vegan]
