One Track // “Powerless” (Acoustic) – Classified & Friends

On June 5th, local Hip-Hop heavyweight Classified gathered together an all-star team of musicians (including Breagh MacKinnon, David Myles, Joel Plaskett, Mo Kenny, Neon Dreams, Rose Cousins, Adam Baldwin, & others) to record a stripped-down, intimate version of his important and heavy-hitting "Powerless".  This recording was put together to support the IWK SeaStar Centre in…Read More

One Track: Vogue Dots, “If You Stay”

Here's the latest track from Halifax's Vogue Dots, the single is called "If You Stay"; they're an electronic band that I've been following since 2014's "Toska" album. Personally I've seen them at Halifax Pop Explosion, East Coast Music Week, and, over in Toronto, at the NXNE festival. They put on some awesome live shows, where…Read More

One Track: “Confidence” – P’Aris

This latest track from the Canadian electro-pop duo is another slice of fantastic ethereal magic.  It’s a great track to sit back and relax to; it feels like a track to throw on while you’re out tooling around the city on a warm summer night during the wee hours.  This is a tune which should…Read More

I think people really caught on to the album as time progressed. And with…Read More

One Track: In-Flight Safety, “Animals”

With the East Coast Music Week vastly approaching next month, in St. John's, Newfoundland, I thought I'd give these guys a plug, as they'll be playing at the festival between April 9th to the 11th. And that's reason enough to go check out In-Flight Safety, especially if you're in the area during the festival, as…Read More

One Track: METZ, “Acetate”

With all of the creative designs, pancake art seems to be all the rage these days, and so is Toronto's noise-rock band, METZ. After their massive sonic release of their self-titled debut album in 2012 through Sub Pop (aka the label that brought us Nirvana & Soundgarden, later Father John Misty & Beach House), METZ…Read More
