Capsule Reviews > Music

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.

Emmas Ringer: Generations

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

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.


Tommy Kruise: Fête Foreign EP

You'll best appreciate this when you’re just concentrating on the music and the beats from this Montreal DJ, rather than his sexist lyrics.


Institute: Salt EP

Salt burns fast but fiercely, leaving its carbon traces smeared on everything it touches.


Garotas Suecas: Feras Míticas

Acid jazz was there before, but now it takes over.

Native America: Grown Up Wrong

Despite declarations of laziness, Native America’s Grown Up Wrong is an easy success.


Chumped: Teenage Retirement

This is an LP to bounce along to, whether it’s in your car or in your bedroom.


As Blood Runs Black: Ground Zero

Basically, Ground Zero is a kind of mindless metal album.


Sick / Tired: Dissolution

This album is better for chasing away bad colds than chicken noodle soup.

Bart: Bart By Bart EP

If you like ‘70s music with the hint of a modern edge, Bart By Bart will more than fit the bill.


Roly Platt: Inside Out

Have you ever wanted to hear “Over the Rainbow” played on a blues harmonica? Well, here’s your chance!


Billy Sharff: This Side of Town

An independent artist looking for ears. You'd do well to lend him yours for a listen.


Open Sails: Open Sails

Calgary, Alberta’s Open Sails is essentially an Evanescence clone, but a pretty good clone at that.

Dire Omen: Wrestling the Revelation of Futility

There’s much to like about this group’s sound, direction and weightiness, but the poor production really undercuts the meatiness of their material.


Monday, November 10 2014

Seaway: All in My Head EP

Indeed, this material will get all up in your head. And Seaway will, I’m hopeful, open the locks and let more ships of music through in the future.
