It’s the weekend and if you’re looking to listen to some great new music, you’re in luck. is currently streaming Lindi Ortega‘s new album for free!

I’ve been looking forward to this album since discovering Ortega at the Calgary Folk Music Festival this past summer.Apparently she’s been building quite a fan base in Toronto for while now, so I’m so happy that the sultry singer is finally on my radar.

Based on the nothing but my impression of her music, I feel like Ortega is celebrating the choice she may have made to not go down the pop music road. She’s gritty, edgy and an uber-talented singer/songwriter, who’ll no doubt be playing to huge crowds some day.

If you wanna hear what I’m talking about, click here to listen to “Cigarettes and Truckstops”. The song “Use Me” is definitely one of my favourites. The album will be released on October 2nd, but why wait? I think you’ll love it.
