The Beach Bats - "Washed Up" EP

Beach/Garage Rockers The Beach Bats have released a new EP “Washed Up”…which I would say does not accurately describe the band since they are rather young now. The EP opens up with “Creature or Die”. Gentle waves crash in on the shore to set the tone then the bass kicks off a tune reminiscent of early 2000’s indie rock but still keeping their surf vibes rollin’. The guitar work from Goth Bikini especially adds excellent surfy tones to the thumpin rhythm section featuring Moon Mutt. It’s fun listening to this band. See them at Doors Pub in Hamilton on October 6th. – Kris Gies

BBQ Pope - New LP on Fried Records!

Here’s some heavy ass garage rock. BBQ Pope bring the heat. Thumpin’ rock n roll that has some Melvins vibes to it. They just released their self titled LP on Fried Records and it rocks. The opening track “Welcome To My Hell” really sets the tone with heavy drums and grungy guitars. You’ll pretty much know if you like it or not right away.  These yutes seem too young to be sad but the next track is titled “Sad and Stoned”…which I’m sure they are the latter. This track leans a bit more towards the pop end of the spectrum. A nice mix-up from the first track and very catchy. Guys will like the opening track and chicks will dig this one. So they may have it all figured out. – Kris Gies


Lady Electric - Brand New 80's Tune

Brand new 80’s synth rock from right here in Toronto. Lady Electric has a very cool sound that could have been brought to the future by Marty Mcfly from 1985. Their tune “Who Has To Know” has a night time cruisin’ feel to it. Very funky bass lines and sharp drums. The synth really carries the whole tune though and keeps you ridin’ with it the whole time. The vocals fit perfectly in with the song as well. You don’t hear much of these kinda tunes comin’ out these days so dig in. – Kris Gies


The Crowleys - "LA Sunset" New Single

Space-Pysch rockers The Crowleys have released a brand new single “LA Sunset”. The intro feels like you might be driving into a summer sunset as the jangly reverb guitars float along. They fade away and slowly hammer into a very groovy beat. This must be after the sunset and we’re hitting the streets lookin for a good time. It’s almost mixin’ in some disco which is a wicked combo alongside their usual garage vibes. Very cool tune with some interesting dynamics. The Crowleys just played the Night Owl Festival supporting Shannon & the Clams, next up for them is DIY festival Hollowfest in Lanark from September 29th to October 2nd. – Kris Gies


The Beaches - New Video is "Money"

Named after the area in Toronto in which they grew up, The Beaches are just about ready to explode. These gals know how to rock n' roll. They have just released their first single “Money” from their upcoming album. Rippin' tune with sensible, catchy melodies and a 60’s stoner voice that’s almost in Grace Slick territory. They are getting ready to release their first full length album on October 13th and will be touring North America with Death From Above 1979 for the fall. The final stop on the tour will be right here in Toronto on December 1st at The Phoenix. I dig their style, easily one of the bands you need to know right now. – Kris Gies
