Jaunt - Jangle Pop Rocker's New Single "Machined"

Hamilton jangly-pop rockers Jaunt are back with a brand new tune “Machined”. This tune has a softer feel with more electronic influences than I have heard from them before. Less Demarco and more Homeshake this time around. According to the band this song is about “recalling a memory you’d like to forget, over-analyzing to the point of uncertainty.” Which is something I think we can all relate to. This is a very interesting track with different influences flowing in and out as the song progresses. Jaunt plays Call the Office in London on November 16th for Mauno’s Release Party. – Kris Gies

Thrifty Kids - "Cry Baby" EP

Old school power pop from this Toronto based 4 piece. “Cry Baby” is the title track from Thrifty Kids' latest EP. It’s a quick fun tune complete with vintage punk rock rhythm section, surfy guitar licks and great female vocals that’ll have you dreaming of beaches and bubble gum. “Your Heart Has an Echo” makes me wish I was cruisin’ USA with palm trees to my left and right and not a care in the world. It’s nice when music can take you to a new place that you might be vibin’ with a little more than what currently surrounds you. Even if it’s just for a minute or 2. Take a trip with Thrifty Kids and their latest EP “Cry Baby” available on their bandcamp page. – Kris Gies

Terra Lightfoot - New single "Norma Gale"

Brand new single from Waterdown native Terra Lightfoot, “Norma Gale” is on her latest album “New Mistakes”. Lightfoot has been around for years but really came into her own on her last album “Every Time My Mind Runs Wild.” She’s an excellent singer/songwriter but also a very underrated guitar player. This tune is about a Canadian woman named Norma Gale who had moderate success in the 1970s Nashville Country scene and while she may not be a household name, Gale was clearly an inspiration for Terra Lightfoot. Her new record is available now through Sonic Unyon Records.  – Kris Gies

King Park - New Album, Release Party at the Casbah!

Originating in the Ancaster area as To Our Divide, King Park opted for a name change and to move away from their pop-punk roots. However I wouldn’t say that the pop-punk influences have completely gone away. “Stay” still has some pop or even emo qualities but is more melodic and intense. You can tell there is serious passion put forward into this song. The vocals strain as the guitars flow from hectic to almost atmospheric. The new album “The Lights I Can’t See” is available this week and the release party goes down at the Casbah in Hamilton on November 2nd. – Kris Gies


Fade Awaays - Fried Records band rocks the Garrison on 11.11

A member of the Fried Records Roster, Fade Awaays are an indie garage band based in Toronto. They have some straight up hard rock influences too. Almost like the skate rock scene from California. “Who Knows” is the opening track from their self titled EP. It rips with fast guitars, thumpin drums and gang vocals on the chorus. You could absolutely do some kick flips to these tunes. Watch these guys tear up the Garrison on November 11th. – Kris Gies
