Stream “Don’t Be Sad” from the album ‘Brutal Love’ by Edmonton’s J. Eygenraam. It’s contemporary alternative pop rock with a touch of late ’70′s New York (think Television).

[LISTEN] THE EVERYWHERES – HABITUALISM (LP)

habitulaism

Halifax has quite the psychedelic dream pop thing going on. The Everywheres are another group of that ilk, but their sound is more of the lo fi garage rock variety. ‘Habitualism’ is eight tracks of reverb-heavy guitars and cooing choruses. It’s all a fun trippy ’60′s throwback so long as you don’t take it too seriously.

Smash Boom Pow’s “A Girl” is rock pop with dance sensibilities and a decidedly British tinge. ‘Smash Boom Pow’ pretty well sums it up.

[LISTEN] BEND SINISTER – I GOT LOVE

bend-sinister

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.

There is nothing finer than spending time in the funky confines of the Solstice Cafe on a lovely Victoria summer evening. Nothing, that is, unless you add some terrific music by two of Canada’s classier acts. Continue Reading

mindil 2

Mindil Beach Markets recently shortened their bench (losing founding member, Daniel Kingsbury) and shortened their name (now it’s simply Mindil Beach). How does all that affect their sound? You be the judge. Check out their latest, a rollicking, fun number called “Love Like Mine”.
