“The Mighty Birch” is delightful indie pop number from the quirky Saskatchewan duo known as PandaCorn.
New stuff from The Bicycles. “Justice To The World” is a dream pop number but it also features some kick-ass power chords and great guitar reverb. If you like it then you should check out the whole album ‘Young Drones’, which you can stream at Soundcloud. ‘Young Drones’, by the way, is a rock opera. Yes, that’s right, I said rock opera!
PyPy is a “supergroup” formed by members of CPC Gangbangs, Red Mass and Duchess Says. Their 7-track album ‘Pagan Day’ is a non-stop blistering psych-punk freakout. The pace ranges from driving hardcore through dance punk to slowcore grind, but at all times it is both sinister and enticing. A great record.
It would be easy to dismiss Cowards as just another lo-fi punk band from Vancouver. First of all, they’re not really punk, more like noise rock with a goth edge. Furthermore, listening to their album ‘World Champions in Male Chastity’ you get the sense there is some inspired madness beneath the sneering surface. This probably won’t be the last time I talk about them….
