Another one just in time for Halloween. The video to “Love Rat” has the Betrayers dressing up in fittingly eerie costumes as they writhe to the sounds of their psychedelic surf rock.

[Watch] The Great Sabatini – Life During Wartime

The Great Sabatini very effectively mesh their droning metal distortion with footage from the 1993 cult classic ‘The Thief and the Cobbler’ (one of my favourite animated movies of all time).

[Watch] First You Get the Sugar – Foreign Lands

No Comments 23 October 2014

by Mark Anthony Brennan

The name First You Get the Sugar is quite the mouthful, but they are definitely worth taking a bite. Although their sound is certainly contemporary, FYGTS’s song structures and arrangements are a bit of a throwback to those FM radio bands of the ’70’s. The video to “Foreign Lands” features a lot of street scenes from Montreal.

Man, this has been a busy week in music — I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. Anyway… Rosie June has so far been one of Vancouver Island’s best-kept secrets, but we figure that isn’t going to last much longer. Here she gives Sugar Ray’s “When It’s Over” a torchy, haunting makeover.

Good news, kids. Ought has some new music on the way in the form an EP. In the meantime, they offer this teaser video which celebrates the shimmering sounds of ennui. Yes, Tim Beeler’s dance moves are hard to take, but it’s all part of their ‘f$ck you, this is all stupid’ charm.

[Watch] Sarah MacDougall – I Want to See the Light

by Mark Anthony Brennan

It’s nice to see some artistry in video production (sorry, but DIY efforts are getting tiresome). There are lot of deft touches in this one set to the song “I Want to See the Light” by Sarah MacDougall. It portrays a story of what it is like to be walking home knowing that there is a sniper out there.
