(Left) Angie McMahon, songwriter out of Australia, evokes at times Haley Heyndrickx, Florence + the Machine, and Tracy Chapman, on her stunning and highly personal debut album Salt. (Right) Recorded at Chad VanGaalen’s Calgary studio, Halifax band Mauno‘s new album Really Well uses the shape of idiosyncratic and playful poprock to study themes of intimacy, authenticity, even labor. Check out the video for their song “Take Care” below, along with the hilarious video for the Black Keys song “Go” from their chart-topping album Let’s Rock!

**HIGHLIGHTS**

**Best musical dear diary from a powerful poetess: Angie McMahon: Salt
**Best power pop product polished with at least 3000 grit: Mauno: Really Well
**Best effortlessly inventive and musically reverent neo-soul: Pieces of a Man: Made in Pieces
**Best combo of ‘an indie DIY aesthetic with a questing hippie spirit and a relentless work ethic’: Particle Kid: Window Rock
