Flat 5 - Debut Album Release Party this Friday

 Flat 5 are a "funkified collective" hailing from Hamilton. This 5 piece jam band features a tight rhythm section, excellent guitar and keyboard playing and some horns over the top to add a nice funky taste to this jam soup. They blend a variety of influences in to their tunes including blues, funk, jazz and hip hop. They have been jamming all over the province this year and are now ready to release their debut album. Friday November 17th is the release party at This Ain't Hollywood in Hamilton along with the Altobeelays. Listen to "Toothpaste"; a sneak preview from their upcoming album. - Kris Gies


Sweet Talk Jackie - Kingston Power Trio's Music Video "Squeeze"

This power trio hails from the Kingston area. Sweet Talk Jackie blends alt-rock, blues, soul and good ol’ classic rock together for a nice n’ bad ass sound. “Squeeze” is the first single from their latest album “Planes, Trains and Time Machines”. It’s a well put together tune that’s very radio friendly. Also they make a robot in the music video which may have seemed like a good idea at the time but as you’ll find it out that plan goes straight to hell by the end of it. Now I’m just waiting for the sequal. Catch Sweet Talk Jackie at the Merchant Tap House in Kingston on November 17th. – Kris Gies


Jaunt - Jangle Pop Rocker's New Single "Machined"

Hamilton jangly-pop rockers Jaunt are back with a brand new tune “Machined”. This tune has a softer feel with more electronic influences than I have heard from them before. Less Demarco and more Homeshake this time around. According to the band this song is about “recalling a memory you’d like to forget, over-analyzing to the point of uncertainty.” Which is something I think we can all relate to. This is a very interesting track with different influences flowing in and out as the song progresses. Jaunt plays Call the Office in London on November 16th for Mauno’s Release Party. – Kris Gies

Thrifty Kids - "Cry Baby" EP

Old school power pop from this Toronto based 4 piece. “Cry Baby” is the title track from Thrifty Kids' latest EP. It’s a quick fun tune complete with vintage punk rock rhythm section, surfy guitar licks and great female vocals that’ll have you dreaming of beaches and bubble gum. “Your Heart Has an Echo” makes me wish I was cruisin’ USA with palm trees to my left and right and not a care in the world. It’s nice when music can take you to a new place that you might be vibin’ with a little more than what currently surrounds you. Even if it’s just for a minute or 2. Take a trip with Thrifty Kids and their latest EP “Cry Baby” available on their bandcamp page. – Kris Gies

Terra Lightfoot - New single "Norma Gale"

Brand new single from Waterdown native Terra Lightfoot, “Norma Gale” is on her latest album “New Mistakes”. Lightfoot has been around for years but really came into her own on her last album “Every Time My Mind Runs Wild.” She’s an excellent singer/songwriter but also a very underrated guitar player. This tune is about a Canadian woman named Norma Gale who had moderate success in the 1970s Nashville Country scene and while she may not be a household name, Gale was clearly an inspiration for Terra Lightfoot. Her new record is available now through Sonic Unyon Records.  – Kris Gies
