River Tiber presents: 'Taurus'

River Tiber released the new song 'Taurus' last week.  It's not just a track though, it's a milestone on the journey between River Tiber's first full length album Indigo and the highly anticipated second album, rumoured to be out later this year.  This serene song follows the single 'Deep End' from late last year, and this is an interesting addition to River Tiber's extensive catalogue.  This is one artist that owns all aspects of their work, from writing to recording, producing and playing nearly every instrument on every song.  'Taurus' sounds like a deeply personal track, but regardless it's an enchanting exploration of unconditional love. 

River Tiber Presents 'Patience'

River Tiber offered a stand out performance in 2017 when we saw him early on a Sunday at NXNE.  He's preparing to release new music in 2018, and while it's sure to make waves it's subtlety is where you'll find the real magic. 'Patience' is his first release since the 2016 album Indigo, and it's been worth waiting for.  River Tiber has steadily grown in prominence ever since, making his upcoming release one of the most anticipated of the year...

5 Must See Artists @ NXNE Port Lands

5. Caveboy: Saturday 3 pm, Canal Stage

 Kicking off our list of essential performances at NXNE Port Lands is  Montreal's Caveboy.  They've been in the studio working on the follow up to last year's single 'Superbia'.  We caught their show last summer at Osheaga, and loved it.  Based on that experience, and the possibility of hearing some of that new music they've been working on, we just can't miss Caveboy at NXNE.


4. River Tiber: Sunday 6 pm Skyline Stage

This week River Tiber is performing in Spain at the Sonar Festival, and returns home to Toronto to help bring the Port Lands festival to a glorious close on Sunday.  River Tiber is one of the most buzzed about names in music these days, and for good reason.  He's released music with Daniel Caesar, Pusha T, and fellow Port Lands performer Kaytranada.  The album Indigo was released last year, and it's way too good to pass up the chance to hear some of those songs live on a sunny Toronto Sunday.

3. Kaytranada: Saturday 9:30 pm, Skyline Stage

Kaytranada was added to the Port Lands lineup when Tyler the Creator cancelled his performance.  The album 99.9% is still in heavy rotation, and based on his set at Manifesto last summer this is one headline show that cannot be missed.  There's simply no one else who dj's or makes music like Kaytranada, and that unique style and sound is what brings together such a lively, energetic crowd at his shows. 

2. Cold Specks: Friday 6:20 pm, Canal Stage

Last year following Schoolboy Q's headline show at NXNE Port Lands, Cold Specks put on a stunning show at Lee's Palace.  With the new single 'Wild Card' released just today, we're excited to hear the evolution of one of the finest voices in music one year later.  It seems a fitting next step that Cold Specks would taking the stage at the large scale NXNE event.  If 'Wild Card' is the first in a new collection of music, this show could be a chance to hear more...

1. Sleigh Bells: 7:50 pm Skyline Stage

Flashback to 2014 and Sleigh Bells was stealing the show at NXNE with a Wednesday night show at Tattoo, and an appearance at Yonge/Dundas Square the following night.  They were touring in support of the album Bitter Rivals and this time around it's the incredible album Jessica Rabbit.  The duo of Alexis Krauss and Derek Miller have been unstoppable since 2010's Treats was released, and their live show is not to be taken lightly.  This show is an opportunity to see Sleigh Bells live that should not be passed up.
