The Retroaction - Explore their record collection with "These Things For You" video!

Indie retro-rockers from Hamilton, The Retroaction are back with a brand new music video. “These Things For You” is a tune about loving a stranger and imagining life with that stranger. It’s a groovy tune that combines rock n’ roll classics of the 60’s and 70’s with indie rock of the 2000’s. They could play on Ed Sullivan or Carson Daly…take your pick. This lyric video is a fun exploration of the band’s record collection. Very cool sounds from these guys. Make sure you see them live on December 21st at the Gladstone Hotel. – Kris Gies

Jean Daddy - "Let's Ride Boys!"

Toronto’s rock n’ roll enigma Jean Daddy have released a brand new record. They are one of the more unique bands in the area right now with their most recent release prior to this record being a comic book. They are known for their charisma on stage and these fellas can really bring it. As Jean Daddy says they “put the rock in raucous.” Very accurate statement with their dirty garage guitars, driving rhythms and frantic vocals. Their release party goes down Friday November 24 at the Baby G along with Vypers and BBQ Pope. Let’s Ride Boys! – Kris Gies


The DropUps - Junction City EP Release Party Friday!

Toronto based band The DropUps have quite an eclectic mix of influences. Their sound has been described as “Joe Strummer, Tom Waits and Manu Chao walk into a bar and request the Specials on the jukebox as Eugene Hutz from Gogol Bordello dances up a storm.” They have recorded a 3 song EP at Trouble Town Records Studio which is due for release on November 17th. Their release party is the same day at Junction City Music Hall. Listen to “Pingai” and get a feel for what’s in store for November 17th from the Drop Ups. – Kris Gies

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
