Little You Little Me
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.
Solo, duo or with her punk band NVN, this bottle rocket continues to write incredible songs and then sings them with a voice likely to have been attained through a deal done at the crossroads.
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.
Tooth & the Fang
Sad songs presented with great joy and enthusiasm; he’d rather be alone than pretend, which is part of what makes this band so damned good.
From Newfoundland; pure garage-pop with punk spirit, highly-pitched vocals and biting Spanish lyrics; the sweetest poison pill.
Greville Tapes Music Club
Four musical blind dates for eight artists on the shores of the Bay of Fundy produced 17 amazing collaborations on 4 cassettes. New series, the Tin Can Beach Edition, coming in 2020.
