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.

COMMON HOLLY

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]
