holerado

Hollerado sing in German. I’m not kidding. The Ottawa band is getting set to play at Hamburg’s Reeperbahn Festival, so they’ve recorded this little garage rock gem in German. I have no idea what they are saying.

the party dress

Winnipeg’s The Party Dress serves up some swampy blues rock from out of their basement (or maybe out in the garage). The music’s got a spooky twist to it.

[LISTEN] PYPY – PAGAN DAY

pypy

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.

the grubbies

My love affair with the East Coast continues with the Halifax garage pop power trio The Grubbies. This is one of their quieter songs, but I just couldn’t resist it. It’s from their EP ‘New to Cool’, which is getting air time on student radio stations coast-to-coast.

[Album Review] JPNSGRLS- Circulation

Release Date: July 15th, 2014
Label: Light Organ Records

JPNSGRLS (pronounced ‘Japanese Girls’) put together a batch of high energy punk-pop on their full-length debut, ‘Circulation‘, and there’s a lot to like here. There’s trashy punk outbursts and heavy metal power chords. There are grungy lows and power pop highs. The vocalists, who spins some quirky lyrics, has a singing style that falls somewhere between British ’70’s glitter and American ’90’s indifference, and he throws in some screams and falsetto for good measure. So the ingredients are all there, but the question is whether they can successfully pull all of the elements together. Continue Reading

small teeth

Today is Weird Tuesday, right? Well, never mind, I’ve just decided that it is. So here’s something weird — Small Teeth Tape by Small Teeth. From what I can gather this is alcoholic food service industry fuzz psychedelic garage noise pop. Yay, my favourite!

[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.
