Bo Welland - "Thank The Lord" Single, Supermarket 05.17

Bo Welland is the name of a rock band from Toronto…not the name of any person in the band however. Influenced by many early 2000’s indie rock bands such as The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys and the Libertines along with classics like Simon & Garfunkel and The Clash. They have a nice slacker attitude in the track “Thank The Lord”. The lazy vocals and somewhat sloppy guitars float along in endearing fashion. Bo Welland plays Supermarket on May 17th with Fat Chance, The Jones and Charlie Joy. – Kris Gies

The Killer Wails - "Shake It" Single, Junction City 04.11

Toronto garage punk band The Killer Wails have released a new track “Shake It” and it’s an absolutely raucous tune. The greasy bass thumps along which really keeps the track moving. The vocals have an excellent “fuck you” tone in ‘em which is always a good thing. You can tell these fellas will put on a rowdy show. This Wednesday (April 11th) they play Junction City Music Hall with a couple other deadly bands The Thinly Veiled Double Entendres and Johnny 2 Fingers & The Deformities from Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. You owe it to yourself to have a wild Wednesday! – Kris Gies





First Base - "Not That Bad" LP, Playin' Hard Luck Bar 04.04

Toronto power-pop quartet First Base have recently released a new LP titled “Not That Bad” on Drunken Sailor Records. This record delivers exactly what you would expect from First Base…catchy hooks, impeccable harmonies and altogether well-crafted songs executed to perfection. Especially as the weather gets warmer you’ll be cranking these tunes as you roll down the windows. The title track sounds like an oldies pop rock tune that’ll put a smile on your face as you take that special someone out for a milkshake at the local diner. “Not That Bad” is available on Drunken Sailor Record’s Bandcamp. First Base will be opening for Patsy’s Rats along with Tough Age and Binos on Wednesday April 4th at Hard Luck Bar. – Kris Gies





The Tang - "I'll Try Harder Next Time" EP

Interesting lo-fi pop group The Tang have a very unique thing goin’ on. It sounds like 60’s pop drenched in shoegaze. Their latest EP “I’ll Try Harder Next Time” opens with a jangly, fun tune called “Deep Space Nine” which sort of takes you on a journey through space…but only if space had sunny afternoons with beautiful green grass. Maybe it does…I have never been there. If you’re into any of the psych influenced tunes that are popular these days then have some Tang. – Kris Gies





Bike Thiefs - New EP, USA Tour!

Bike Thiefs have been around the Toronto punk scene for a while. They hail from the ‘burbs of Mississauga and play some noisy punk rock. They released a new EP last year titled “Lean Into It.” The opening track is in-your-face and rowdy. The fuzzy bass rumbles along with the drums and the guitars combine for a barrage of hectic noise. Give the album a spin on their bandcamp and even buy it if ya want! Bike Thiefs are touring the USA now and would appreciate the gas money! April 28th they return to the GTA playing the New Grey Goat in Newmarket. – Kris Gies
