Bike Thiefs Keep Punk Raw, And On Vinyl

 Bike Thiefs are full out; they hit the ground running right from the start. The new EP, These Things Happen All The Time, is short, and not even close to being sweet. Punishing, blasting beats with soaring, grating vocals make for a mean punk explosion, drumming up flashbacks to your favorite sweaty deafening basement shows. The ones that really let you sleep when you were finally finished fighting your war against the rest of the crowd. “Redline” is the one moment where the band takes their collective foot off the pedal, and still put out a pounding and wailing scream-along, combining a great melody with absolute reckless fun-rock. Bike Thiefs now have physical copies, a la vinyl EP, for sale, and you should get them before they’re gone.

Datura Daydream Drop Deadly Dramatic Debut

 When I first listened to Payday off the upcoming album, The Lick Is In The Lisp by Datura Daydream, I really had no idea what to expect or think. However, the Toronto based three piece band has completely blown me away with this amazing (mostly) instrumental track. Payday starts off slow with a super funky bass riff and a catchy drum beat that justs flow so perfectly in sync. Distorted and screechy guitars transition the song through its middle, accented by the song’s few ambient lyrics, and then wraps up with a mellow groove that I still have stuck in my head. Then there’s the video, which you need to see to truly appreciate the song, as it syncs perfectly with theme and feel. Hands down, Datura Daydream is one of the acts I’m definitely keeping my eye on in the upcoming year. Make sure to get your hands on Datura Daydream’s new album, which drops on December 12 with a release party at the Holy Oak, along with guests Love McPherson, We Were Heads, and HAMS.

Blesst Chest's New Video Will Turn Heads...into Hands

On this indulgent day of thanks and forced interactions, enjoy more than just a tryptophanic coma with Blesst Chest's new music video for "Def Gary." The single, which comes off their official debut album Wish You Were There, is another surrealistic endeavor by video directer and 1/3 of Blesst Chest, Jay Winebrenner. The "Def Gary" video features a montage of humans doing run of the mill things, like dancing alone in a basement, in an alternate reality wherein everyone's heads have been very creepily replaced with hands. Just like Blesst Chest's predecessing video, last year's "Sebedad," their newest is alike in its intriguing discomfort. Watch the awkwardly awe-inspiring video below.

 

 

Wish You Were There will be releasing hopefully before the year's end, so keep an eye out for it.

Elvyn Charge You Up w/"Valley Of The Kilowatt Hour"

 So I came across this band called Elvyn. Let me tell ya; if you're feelin' like some easy going pop rock tunes, you're in for a treat. They happen to have just released their second album "Valley of the Kilowatt Hour". Opening track "Ellie" is a solid tune, like a Tom Petty rhythm section layered in some Blue Rodeo guitar work and some sweet melodies all over it. The vocals could be straight from the 60s. Muchos catchy, that's for sure. I will be humming this track in my head for a while. They're mixin’ up some straight power pop with almost a Nova Scotian edge to it and I think you'll like it. Elvyn is doing a double album release party with Run With The Kittens (as well as the Alpacas) on Friday December 11 at the Horseshoe Tavern.
