Tongue Patrol - Unusually interesting new single "God B With You"

Interesting avante-garde indie rock from Tongue Patrol. Their latest release is a single called “God B With You.” It’s jangly and makes you feel like you can’t see in focus. The chorus section takes a complete left turn with a hectic loud/quiet dynamic. If you’re tired of what you usually listen to then Tongue Patrol will give you a shot of what you need. They are having a double release party with Mother Tongues on Friday February 16th. Nikki Fierce is also the bill. – Kris Gies





Grand Analog - "Mutations" Video, Playin' The Drake 02.23

Grand Analog band leader Odario Williams describes their sound as “A beautiful mess of rap n’ roll, dub and soul.” Personally I find most new hip hop to be hard to listen to but these guys are a true band who have the skill to play instruments, write smart tunes and lay down a bouncin’ beat when that’s what needs to be done. Their latest video “Mutations” takes you through a day in the life of a 14 year old boy as he searches for manhood. This sounds like a classic hip hop tune. The beat is old school and quite honestly its bang on. The De La Soul influence is obvious as it features Posdnuos. Really diggin’ these fellas. They will be heading to SXSW this year. Go see em before they go at The Drake Underground on February 23rd. – Kris Gies





Dizzy - "Stars and Moons" Single

Straight outta Oshawa, Dizzy will be representing the GTA at SXSW in a couple months. They recently released a new tune “Stars and Moons”. It’s a very relaxed, synth based tune. Deep bass mixed with the soft female vocals carry the tune for the most part. The guitar lays in the weeds until a nice solo jumps in for the climax of the song. I hear some Coldplay influences in there. It seems as though Dizzy has made some quick work through the scene and are on their way to something big. Good luck to them in Austin! See the in Hamilton on February 9th at Twelveighty Bar & Grill along with The Kents, Post Romance and Emma Vandyk. – Kris Gies

Casper Skulls - Hometown Show 02.10 before SXSW!

Casper Skulls released a new LP last November titled “Mercy Works”. Seems they have added more of a pop presence on this record. Evident in the track “Lingua Franca”. The nice vocals give a 90’s alternative vibe to the track. They still keep enough fuzz and emotion to not stray too far from their garage roots. Perhaps a bit of maturity from these folks. They play here in Toronto at the Super Wonder Gallery on February 10th before they take off to Austin and represent “The Big Smoke” at SXSW! Nice work! – Kris Gies
