New Release: TEARJERKER – Rare

December 16, 2011

We were recently introduced to Toronto’s Tearjerker and since that time we’ve had trouble taking their latest effort, Rare, off repeat here at The iM. If lo-fi, dream-pop and shoegaze and a baby, the result would be Tearjerker – a pretty good combination as far as we’re concerned.

With that being said, have a listen to the long player in the Bandcamp player below – you can even download the album under the ‘name your price’ option. We’re really feeling So Dead, Sidewalk and Dark.

In other news, the band plays The Sister (formerly Mitzi’s) tomorrow night with Sianspheric and Kestrels. For more info, check out Tearjerker over on Facebook.
