Brenda - "Children" Music Video

Here’s a really cool video from one of the top bands bursting from Toronto’s thriving garage/pysch scene. Brenda has released a new single from their upcoming EP “Creeeper”. “Children” sneaks along with a creepy pace and the video falls right in line with that ambience. They smoothly transition from dark clown quiet riffage to a frenetic blend of fuzz, verb and more fuzz. You should watch this video alone late at night while playing Resident Evil on Playstation 1. Brenda plays Friday (October 20) at The Monarch Tavern with Crazy Bones and Pink Acid Wash. – Kris Gies

Outer Rooms - New Album, Release Party Saturday!

A small but mighty indie rock band from Toronto. Outer Rooms just released a new album last month titled “Even In The Cannon’s Mouth”. The album opens up with a track named after everyone’s favorite TTC subway station “Castle Frank”. They definitely have some influence from early 2000’s indie rock as well as the more recent tunes from The Arkells. The title track has catchy guitar licks along with an emotional, part-yelling vocal performance. Catch Outer Rooms Release Party this Saturday (October 21) at Handlebar with Grids, Westelaken and Reader. – Kris Gies 


Knifey - Full Tilt Pop Punk on new EP

 “Beached” is the new record from Toronto 4 piece power pop band Knifey. They have some well done pop punk that’ll remind you of growing up. You will get sad and pumped at the same time listening to some of these tunes. “Serf” is a very catchy sing-along tune that has some influences from Weezer’s Blue Album. “Tanlines” is right up the Blink 182 alley with a catchy chorus and quick pop guitar licks. Available for download on their bandcamp page. Knifey plays The Great Hall on Saturday (October 21) along with Pkew Pkew Pkew, Sure and Pineapple Girls. – Kris Gies


RoniCea - Debut Single "Bassline"

RoniCea is a Toronto based soul singer who just released her first single “Bassline (ft. YoDaddyDoe)”. This track has major throwback vibes. The spacious beat with the synth/keys over the top hit that 90’s RnB spot so well. You don’t hear many new tunes like this nowadays. This will be cranked with the windows down all over Toronto very soon. This has the vibes of the peak era of RnB. I think they should have extended the outro for longer and really let that beat flow. Still a good tune no doubt. – Kris Gies


Fried Dough - "Fried-Day the 13th" at Smiling Buddha

Here’s something a little different…Fried Dough. Great name for this electronic-psych package. This four piece band blends all their favorite things…animals, music and horses…into a thumpin’ 10 minute epic package known as “French Cinema”. The beginning sounds like it should be the opening credits for an 80’s action movie. You just gotta listen to it and get lost. It’s like if Daft Punk were a jam band. Hearing them live with real instruments would be awesome. Fried Dough play this “Fried-Day” October 13th at the Smiling Buddha. – Kris Gies
