Jordsy

Based in Winnipeg, Canada there is a creative under the name of Jordsy, who plays both as a solo artist and as part of a band. His solo material on which this review is focussed has an indie-folk-pop sound to it. The solo vehicle came in to being last year (2011) and already there is a plethora […]

Lamont James

Lamont James, played some music, got a B.Sc moved back to the home-space of Toronto in Canada and now plays more music. A multi-instrumentalist, classically trained musician, Lamont James is un-ashamed to add other musicians as and where it makes sense, though ever insistent it is his vocal. Heading back to the late ’60s and British rock, I […]

Delica-m

Delica-m, is a band fromToronto in Canada - Herm (vocals / Keys), Em (vocals), Rich (guitar) and Steve (stunt keys) push out in intriguing electro-pop sound. Perhaps it is because I was just reading a press release about a Metal Festival, but the vocal is a touch of magic with Delica-m, taking the band away from an arty electro-band […]

Pennan Brae

Pennan Brae is a solo singer /  songwriter / instrumentalist from Vancouver in Canada with a strong visual element and a sense of exploration. Pennan Brea and I have been in contact for quite some while and although I have managed to post some of his videos on Indie Music Videos, I never seem to […]

Plants and Animals

Plants and Animals the trio of Warren C. Spicer, Matthew Woodman Woodley, Nicolas Basque from Montreal in Canada have been around for a while now, with a debut LP coming out in 2008 and a follow up in 2010. This is an example of frustration and I know so may bands go through this. There is something really […]

Slow Down, Molasses

There is a mouthful for a band name – Slow Down, Molasses, who are from Saskatoon in Canada, with a population of c250 000 – why do I mention it- well 9 of them are in the band, with added help from time to time. I have visions of a conurbation here. The core is […]

Elephant Stone

Elephant Stone from Montreal in Canada, shone in to focus with their debut album, The Seven Seas, back in 2009, but as ever, I have been sitting on info for a while. Rishi Dhir, Bobby Fraser, Gab Lambert and Jules Pampena create a suitable back-drop as I write this on a lazy Sunday afternoon. I […]

Enter The Haggis

From Toronto in Canada, Enter The Haggis have been around since early this century. Trevor Lewington (vocals and guitar), Brian Buchanan (vocals, fiddle, keyboards and guitar), Craig Downie (bagpipes, harmonica, whistle and vocals), Mark Abraham ( bass, vocals and Bruce McCarthy (drums) combine to generate current Celtic rock. Often bands don’t need comparisons, purely superlatives-  […]

The Rural Alberta Advantage

No prizes for guessing where The Rural Alberta Advantage emanate. The trio of Nils Edenloff (Vocals and Guitar), Amy Cole (Vocals, Keyboard &  Percussion) and Paul Banwatt (Drums) come from Toronto in Canada, describing their music as reflecting the images og growing up in north and Central Alberta. Even the band name demands a second […]

City Of Glass

City of Glass are a duo from Vancouver in Canada who have been around since 2008. Michael Champion (Guitar and vocals) and David Phu (Guitar) combine their passion for pop-rock, dance music, minimalism and melodies. Combining Synthscape to clean composition, generating enervating dance beats. I wouldn’t try to guess the number of bands who send […]
