Owen Pallett: In Conflict

Owen Pallett, previously Final Fantasy, has to be one of the more interesting artists in Canadian music. It can be difficult to classify Owen’s music into any given genre, so I won’t. His new album, In Conflict, will be out this spring. Pallett promises that “It is a full-stop 10/10 emotional rollercoaster and you are all gonna die when you hear it.” Looking forward to the ride....

Pup: Pup

PUP (Pathetic Use of Potential) made the CBC Radio 3′s recent “10 Canadian Artists to Watch in 2014” list, which is a  great start if you are looking for some musical inspiration. Lately, laziness and a photography side project has hijacked my blog posts. As a result I have been sitting on this album which is good, really good. PUP, formerly known as Topanga, have kicked out an...

The Power Hour

I stumbled across ”The Steve & John Power Hour with Steve and John” podcast today whilst perusing Twitter. The tweet was an attention grabber for two reasons: It was for an interview with Dan Mangan One of the hosts was an acquaintance from the student newspaper I worked at in college. The structure of the show was informal, so informal that often it wasn’t clear who was interviewing...

Shad: Flying Colours

Shad, AKA Shadrach Kabango, not only has one of the coolest names North of the border, but his albums are incredibly smart and fun to listen. Flying Colours has been playing on my headphones for the past few months and I  can’t get enough. Shad is exactly what I admire in quality Hip Hop. He isn’t cocky and bragging about all sorts of accolades that make you wonder what he’s compensating...

Arcade Fire: Reflektor

A Couple More Reasons to Love Arcade Fire I am all for seeing Canadian indie bands find their success in international (read US) music scenes. As such, I am looking forward to Reflektor, the new double disc album Arcade Fire is releasing on October 29. The video below does nothing but stoke my interest. This morning, I got my panties in a bit of a knot when I read about an exclusive Reflektor show in Los...

Time Warp Tuesday

Sloan is one of those bands that I wish I had listened to more. They were arguably one of Canada’s biggest non-top 40 trailblazers throughout the 90′s. They were huge. Anyone into ‘alternative’ music remembers this Halifax bands name. As music wasn’t as accessible as it is today, they never got heavy rotation on my walkman/discman. I think it is because a ton of my music was...

Although we both hail from Mother Calgary, I was not familiar with Lauren Mann and The Fairly Odd Folk prior to the release of their latest album, Over Land and Sea. This discovery is further proof to me that Calgary has a solid music scene that rarely gets the attention it deserves. Lauren Mann has a strong, soothing voice that is backed by an authentic band affectionately known as the Fairly Odd Folk....
