These traveling noise complaints hail from the deep south …. of Saint John, New Brunswick. VERY loud melodic pop; new album, Hard To say Not Knowing out on Monopolized Records August 9th. They emphatically go to eleven.

Google Sable Island Ponies; find a shot of one of them looking at you askance through a tumble of hair; meet DenMother. Beats, grooves and a big big heart, but they will probably bite you if you take liberties.

You know that awe you feel watching a flower bloom or a spider weave it’s web? Well that’s how watching and listening to WROTE feels to me; achingly beautiful, simple and plausibly perfect. EP out December 7th on Monopolized Records.

Lo Siento

From Newfoundland; pure garage-pop with punk spirit, highly-pitched vocals and biting Spanish lyrics; the sweetest poison pill.
