Capsule Reviews

Wednesday, December 3 2014

Radical Dads: Cassette Brain

This is an impressive set from Radical Dads, one that feels much bigger than its 16-minute runtime.


Community Theatre: Northern Register

Northern Register serves as a much needed reminder that, hey, there’s music being made in Canada’s Arctic.


Places to Hide: Wild N Soft

Places to Hide, perhaps unwittingly, furthers the argument for vinyl’s superior sound quality as the fidelity of Wild N Soft’s competing sides are called into question.

Jim Putnam & Mickaël Mottet: Jim Putnam & Mickaël Mottet

Radar Brothers' Jim Putnam and Angil's Mickaël Mottet teamed up for this eponymous, collaborative album, and the results are pretty impressive.

Goodbye Heart: Restless Nights EP

Restless Nights, Goodbye Heart’s five track EP, is a synth-pop dream.


Saturday, November 29 2014

Future States: Future States EP

While the music on the Future States EP is fairly one-of-a-kind, its charms are subtle and don’t quite bowl you over.


Thursday, November 27 2014

Zex: Fight for Yourself

Zex blitzes though 10 songs in a half-hour on this record and prove that they’re contenders and not pretenders.


Wednesday, November 26 2014

Heavy Bedroom: I Saw An End EP

My Gosh, what a lasting impression this EP makes.


Lost Twin: The Mist

The Mist is a satisfying experience, and basically puts the bedroom squarely into the realm of hip-hop.


Druid Cloak: Lore: Book One

Lore: Book One is a enjoyable-enough diversion for those who admire electronic music.


Slow Leaves: Beauty Is So Common

Slow Leaves is an outfit that has brought forth an excellent LP, and country-folk-rock fans will clutch this close to their chests.


Tuesday, November 25 2014

I Spell It Nature: North

If you want to hear something glorious, romantic and triumphant, you would do no wrong in checking these guys out.


Prawn: Settled EP

The Settled EP is a great end-of-the-year delicacy and all the more reason to love Prawn.


Monday, November 24 2014

Pharaoh: Negative Everything

If you love Black Sabbath, you won’t be able to get enough of Pharaoh.


Little Cinema: Adventure

For a copycat act, Little Cinema aren’t bad. Not outstandingly great, but not bad, either.


Heidemann: Orphan EP

Orphan is a great stab of the nightlife of the past.


Kellylee Evans: I Remember When

Kellylee Evans delivers a diverse, eclectic album with I Remember When.


Friday, November 21 2014

Emmas Ringer: Generations

For an indie album from a "boring" Canadian city, this is professionally recorded, immensely entertaining and full of hooky songs.


Thursday, November 20 2014

Astrakhan: A Tapestry of Scabs and Skin EP

Astrakhan is a band you’d better pay attention to, because they’re kicking down doors, taking names, and making some absolutely furious and fuzzy rock.


Meligrove Band: Bones of Things

Bones of Things is a great platter and a welcome addition to an already storied career.
