[LISTEN] WEIRD LINES – TWIN SUMMER

Sackville’s Weird Lines is a supergroup of local musicians. “Twin Summer” is a goofy delight, so let’s hope this isn’t just a one-off.

The oddball Fredericton trio, Motherhood, come from a folk background but now play a kind of alternative folk punk garage thing. Or something like that.

[LISTEN] BEND SINISTER – I GOT LOVE

On the album ‘Animals’ those lunatics known as Bend Sinister throw just about everything into the mix — prog rock, vaudeville, psychedelia, 80′s corporate rock, electropop, Queen(!). Some might say they stretched themselves a tad too thin. I personally like “I Got Love”, because it’s just simple old-fashioned blues rock. Think early Deep Purple, complete with Jon Lord on keys.

Yet another song released by Vancouver’s COOL, this one as part of a split 7″ with Weird Lines. You just gotta listen ‘cos they’re…cool.

“Seasick” by The Seahags? A shanty from Cape Breton, no doubt? Hardly. It’s actually some cowpunk from Saskatchewan. No matter — it’s good old rootsy fun regardless.

Bryan Sutherland has been involved with many musical projects in toronto (OPOPO, Saturns), but it’s always his own solo project Zoo Owl that I found the most interesting. Hey, when you are your own band you can do whatever the hell you want and Sutherland does this in both his recorded music and his live act. His latest LP Hollow has a tribal feel beneath his unique vocals.
