Nov 10th Fast Romantics

Fast Romantics Photo Gallery 3

“The triumphant ‘Julia’ could be a lost hit for Elvis Costello and the Attractions. It’s chiming, high-fidelity indie rock with, indeed, an awesome, dirty guitar line throughout that hooked me right away. ” –NPR

“[Fast Romantics] punch up a new breed of New Romanticism with plenty of power pop hooks…Matthew Angus croons, lovelorn, to his heart’s desire with Jarvis Cocker-esque swagger bolstered by the band’s exalting choruses, buzzing guitar licks, chiming keys and pulsing beat.” – KEXP

Nov 17th The Kents

The Kents

The Kents are an emerging force on the Canadian musical landscape that call on anthemic intimacy. Hailing from Lindsay, Ontario, the four-piece indie rock band explore many of the existential crises one experiences when they’re young on their EP Within
waves.
LOST COUSINS NOV 24TH
LOST cousins
For the indie psych rock outfit Lost Cousins, grappling with life transitions—and the domino effects of those choices—is at the core of their sprawling, celestial-sounding debut LP to be released in 2019 via Pheromone Recordings. The record is a sweeping, anthemic tribute to the things one loses or gives up; the places one longs for, especially as one grows up and moves on. Pushing forward and leaning into change isn’t as easy as it looks. It’s a record that spans the entire country and collapses back into itself; feeling like a swelling tide in the ocean with a significant, sweet comedown when the tide settles on the beach. The band has toured throughout Canada and the United States, including opening spots for The Strumbellas, Hollerado, and The Wooden Sky. Recent Canadian festival performances include sets at Wayhome (2015), CityFolk (2016), NXNE (2017), and Hillside Festival (2017). Lost Cousins is Cam Duffin (drums), Lloyd McArton (guitar, saxophone) and Thomas Dashney (keyboards.)

Dec 14th An Evening with NQ Arbuckle

 

nq_arbuckle

Drunk dudes from Huntsville or Lethbridge or St. John’s or wherever hang on every word. Everyone sings, mostly louder than the band. The word motherfucker is a compliment. Every show is an uprising, a groundswell.

Don’t let the self-deprecation or inebriation imply that NQ Arbuckle isn’t serious about the music. This band has earned multiple Juno nominations, considerable critical praise (Pitchfork, Globe and Mail, Toronto Star etc.), and a legion of rabid fans.

NQ Arbuckle has consistently created impressive, treasured albums for more than a decade

Jan 19th Doug Paisley

Doug-Paisley-main

Strong Feelings is the follow up to Paisley’s critically acclaimed 2010 sophomore album Constant Companion, which received full marks in Rolling Stone and MOJO. Constant Companion garnered high praise from many more, including CBC Q, The New Yorker, SPIN, Exclaim!, and Pitchfork, who called the album, “…effortless and insightful, full of songs that draw you in with their peaceful, easy surface and then dump a big load of hurt on you.”

For Strong Feelings, legendary multi-instrumentalist Garth Hudson (The Band) who also appeared on Constant Companion adds his signature keys to the new album. Other guests include Bahamas (aka Afie Jurvanen), bass sax player Colin Stetson (Arcade Fire, Bon Iver), Bazil Donovan (Blue Rodeo), Emmett Kelly (The Cairo Gang) and vocalist Mary Margaret O’Hara. Strong Feelings was produced by Stew Crookes and recorded at Noble Street Studio in Toronto and at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa with Hudson playing a Steinway piano that famously belonged to composer Glenn Gould.
