A three-piece punk rock noise band –Foam, originating from London, Ontario, is slowly storming the music scene. Hailing sludge-infested distortion and an abundance of guitar feedback; this trio really shows they know how to bring the noise. Amidst the cloud of sound, these guys still maintain a moving and unique song structure, while the sporadic use of vocals hints at their obvious punk influence, adding to the intrigue of their sound. They’ll be leaving their garages and basements behind this weekend; Foam is playing the big city alongside fellow Londoners, Political Séance. Go catch them March 6 @ The Central.-Courtney Chalapenko



There are two opportunities this weekend to catch the experimental twin sister group Tasseomancy. I checked out their tracks starting with their latest single “Reality”; It made me completely forget what I was doing...so I listened to it again... I like to call them “Trippy Folk”, modern ambient sounds that are skillfully imaginary. So you should grab your folks n’ friends and check Tasseomancy @ Smiling Buddha March 8 and @ The Baltimore House on March 9. Do it! -Kris “Big City” Gies

The Dying Arts
"The Dying Arts

The Dying Arts, self-titled EP storms through us with lighting bolts and crashing thunder! A genre all of its own, The Dying Arts incorporates progressive 90s rock grit and surf-haze sounds with a punk rock core. They have a flare that floats the EP from heavy to light. “Bed Spins” quakes and spins you around with aggressive melodies and barefaced vocals; heavy whirling guitars that spit and pierce in and out of the brash beats of the bass and drums. “Snake In The Grass” sets a mood with surf guitars and spooky-pop undertones that balance to a warm vigorous vocal. It’s a dance track, that tips the scales of the EP. “Control” is cool, calm and collected; with soft easy vocals that are carried through a atmospheric haze of rhythmic sounds. The entire EP is a collective, attractive listen; diverse and influential with stylized combinations that hit any listener with creative discord. See them this month @ JunoFest @ The Baltimore House 3/13 and The Horseshoe Tavern 3/21.
