Ghostly Beard and The ‘Infinite’ EP.

Ghostly Beard – Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The Montreal based and enigmatic Ghostly Beard gains brownie points for his name alone and the known but unknown way in which he operates. Patrick Talbot has taken to music later on life in lieu of regret at not doing such earlier. Mr. Talbot...

Trashed Ambulance and The ‘A Dime For Every Time’ EP.

Trashed Ambulance – Red Dear, Alberta, Canada. For our previous work on the band – Click Here. Thousand Islands Records have been steadily growing their roster since we reviewed their very first release in March 2016. You can find it – Here – and since then MF has featured more...

Elder Abuse – ‘Burnt’.

Elder Abuse – Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. With perhaps some of my favourite and chaotic album artwork of the year, we have Burnt by Winnipeg four-piece Elder Abuse. My own and MF’s discovery of the record is two-fold as before I received an official email request, I was quite literally drunk and ordering...

Sage and The Debut ‘Procrastinate’ EP.

Sage – Cochrane, Ontario, Canada. As a herb, there is no apparent “good evidence’” that Sage has a beneficial impact on the brain. However, the best thing about this Sage, is that as a band, they’re from the same town as Tim Hortons. Now gee isn’t that a wonderful coincidence....

The Elusive and Abstract Cares and The ‘Coping Strategies’ EP.

Cares – Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Electronic Music, from it’s earliest beginnings to the present day, comes in a bewildering variety of forms, with sampling and synthesis opening up pathways for musicians that often simply aren’t possible in the analogue realm. What sets apart Cares latest EP, Coping Strategies, however, is it’s...

Midday Swim – Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Cover photo credit: Aboyning Photography – Click Here. Canada in my own opinion is an absolute Well of vibrant and diverse musical talent. You can find a link to all we have covered from the absolute expanse of a country – Here – but...

Fresh Picks: Knifey.

Knifey – Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Cover photo credit – Michael Mangov. I’ll start by stating that I’ve just added these guys as my new favourite Canadian exports. Also on the list The Flatliners, Trailer Park Boys and Burt Cummings (yes, that’s his name). To date the band have but a...

Slow Death Lights – ‘Slow Death Lights’ In Review.

Slow Death Lights – Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Down and dirty, gloomy, melodic and inviting Stoner Rock. We’re done, review over. If only it was that easy… We are gathered here today to witness a dissection of the brand new album from Toronto bluesy-Stoner Rocker four-piece, Slow Death Lights. The eponymously...

Young Galaxy – ‘Stay For Real’.

Young Galaxy – Montréal, Quebec, Canada. Montréal Electronic Music four-piece Young Galaxy are no strangers to the world of what I would call underground Pop. The band touch on the synth laden world of Electronic Music as much as they do contemporary Indie as there is so much more than...

Fresh Harvest #4.

Black Tree Suns – Plymouth, England, United Kingdom. Imagine a hybrid between the tried and tested Grunge of Alice In Chains or Pearl Jam and the moody melodies and sharp riffage of Stone Sour. Imagine calm drum beats, mellow guitar riffs, sweet little harmonies and pain stricken vocals. This is...
