[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.

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.

The BC electronic duo of Georgia Murray (vocals) and DJ DWhiz (production) go by the name of LIINKS. Their first single “The Break” has pop sensibilities, but there is still enough of a dark, trip hop edge to keep indie fans happy.
