Daniel Romano brings his moody country to Mod Club tomorrow (11.11)

Did you happen to watch the Country Music Awards the other night? I will admit I flipped to it for a second... and I'm a bit confused because there wasn't any country music, not sure what you call that stuff. However there's an Ontario fella making his rounds these days that makes REAL country music. His name is Daniel Romano and he hails from Welland, Ontario. He used to play punk rock but now has settled on making old time western tunes. He has a number of releases including 2011's "Sleep Beneath the Willow," which has a very soothing folk feel to it. 2013's "Come Cry With Me" sounds like your grandparents' country music and before you turn your nose up just have a listen and enjoy the wonderful melodies - they might make you cry though. This year he released his latest album "If I've Only One Time Asking" and with this album he really comes into his own making the same old time country with a more original feel to it. Many of the songs seamlessly blend into the following track which makes for a very pleasureable listen. The best example of this is tracks 2 and 3 "Old Fires Die" and "Strange Faces". Both great tunes, definite highlights of the album. Daniel spends a lot of time touring through the USA but we're lucky enough to have him right here in Toronto tomorrow night at the Mod Club. Take it from a rocker... this is bad ass music. Enjoy. - Kris  Gies

Providence duo INFJ plays Machines With Magnets on 11.20

Providence duo INFJ calls its music "mom rock" and its January-released EP 's/t' provides the sublime consolation of that parent. Mostly Americana-twanged folk with a splendidly poppy number ("Best Laid Plans," streaming below), the five-song album gracefully explores such common feelings as longing and loneliness with compassion, Scott Thompson's patient guitars and Hayley Simmons' gliding voice providing angelic warmth. The creaky elegance of early Sharon Van Etten and Grizzly Bear is a possible influence on these songs but, largely due to Thompson's pining lyrics, they sound remarkably fresh.

Portland band, Towering Trees, plays first show in six months tonight at Kelly's Olympian

Towering Trees, a band of four from Portland, Oregon, make music they describe as, “contemporary snake charming,” but "indie rock with roots influences" is quite appropriate too. Their first album, “Hangover Hearts,” released in 2013, is a compilation of the band's best qualities: warming vocals, jangly electric guitar, and ardent melodrama. A good example of this is their track “Misfortune.” The song starts out with a plucked guitar melody that pierces through the steady percussion undercurrent, while the vocals, “I feel so sick, I feel so weak,” oscillate above the instrumentation, sounding almost like a whine. Towering Trees will be playing tonight at Kelly’s Olympian for the first time in six months! If you can’t make it, or don’t live in Portland, give their Kickstarter-funded album a listen on Bandcamp. - Isabel Rolston
