As the fall chill begins to settle into our bones, the communal confines of the Tranzac are set to get even cozier thanks to this trio of artists brought together from disparate geographical locations by a shared sense of comfort and affability. To the sounds of reverbed heart-rock, affable jangle-pop, or arty folk, get ready to make some new friends and nod your head to the beat alongside them.

Sahara’s core friendship formed in a cramped tour van, and has since exploded into a vast expanse of shoegaze guitars and gauzy vocals. Three years after releasing debut album Pure Glass (via Hand Drawn Dracula), they’re hard at work on the follow-up, and their consistent run of local shows over the last two years ensures that they’ll sound tighter than ever.

The title and affable sheen of Lewsberg’s latest album, Out and About (releasing September 8 via 12XU), speaks to their ever-expanding ambitions, coinciding with their first-ever North American tour. They certainly sound nice, the kind of crew who would invite you over for tea, put on some Beat Happening, and host a lovely afternoon of chit-chat.

Cots is the solo project of Montreal composer, singer, and guitarist Steph Yates. Blending elements of bossa nova, folk, jazz, and classical against a modern art backdrop, Cots’s subtly unconventional compositions and poetics permeate debut record Disturbing Body and follow-up EP Moonlit Building. Her pure, crystalline voice carries the gravitas of songs that evoke lost love and its consequences.
