New Releases From Jitensha, Innes Wilson, Mark Martye, Rebekah Hawker, Li'l Andy and Red Arms

Canadian duo Jitensha have recently released their new album titled "Under Control." It features ten upbeat, pop songs that just feel good listening to. They begin with the cavity causing sweetness of "Under Control," as the pair harmonize wonderfully on this opening track. The energy continues to flow through the mambo rhythm of "Birds Of Paradise," before Jitensha slow the tempo down for the warming tones of "Echo." The duo return to the uplifting, pop swing of "Wonderful Life," before finishing up their new album with gliding melody of "Patience" and steady climbing beats of "Sea Of Numbers."
