We love it when we find shops that are gems off of the beaten path. Located in the quaint neighbourhood of Summerhill/Rosedale area in Toronto, Room 2046 is a multi-disciplinary lifestyle brand comprising of a shop, cafe, and studio. Shopping, caffeine, and culture—what more could we ask for.

With the opening track on his new album Mission Accomplished called “As I Am in Tim Hortons, I Realize I Hate Tim Hortons”, it’s definitely safe to say that B.A. Johnston is the most unique and to-the-point musical artist out there. Armed with his facial hair and distinct, hilariously honest attitude, Johnston is releasing his ninth full-length album and once again doing an extensive Canadian tour, which runs until the end of November. ION’s Music Editor Trevor Risk chats to him and finds out more.

Do you remember the first time your parents let you stay home without them? Did you concoct a drink out of 7Up and chocolate chips and then dare your younger brother to drink it? Did you frantically search the house for stag mags, trying to see if there were boobs SOMEWHERE in your home? The Darcys' new video for "Itchy Blood" takes every viewer back to a time we can all relate to, and as a bonus it stars two ball-hurtingly hot women who are styled to dreamy perfection.

Tess Parks and Teenanger are two of our favourite acts, not just out of Toronto, but anywhere. We smashed them together because we wanted to play God. They interviewed and took photos of each other and this is what we got. “There’s peanut butter in my chocolate! There’s chocolate in my peanut butter!” Together they taste like this.

If you already know Basia Bulat, then you’ll feel a comfortable familiarity with her latest release, Tall Tall Shadow, almost immediately. If you don’t, then I recommend going back and starting with her first release Oh, My Darling, not because Tall Tall Shadow is less accessible (it is), but because Basia’s growth as an artist is worth following.
