F.Scott & The Nighthawks - New Single "Kiss The Sun"

Classic roadhouse rock n roll right here in Toronto. F.Scott & The Nighthawks are “northern boys steeped southwestern sounds”. Long hair and beards. These good ol’ boys have an EP on the way this year while releasing their first single “Kiss The Sun” this month. Definitely a summer tune that would go best with a beer in hand. You could even go full redneck and throw it in a koozie! Springsteen/Seger vibes all the way. The Nighthawks play The Horseshoe Tavern on March 8th. - Kris Gies

Cherry Blaster - Alt Synth Pop play Handlebar 02.24

Eerie synthpop with an alternative tinge is what I gather from Cherry Blaster. The tune “Modern Dance” kicks off with some very deep bassy synth that would rattle your brain when listened to at a loud decibel. It would be the best way to hear it. The song is composed very uniquely with interestingly different parts that flow together in somewhat unusual ways. Cherry Blaster will be performing at Handlebar on February 24th with ZOO OWL and Bad Passion. – Kris Gies


FRIGS - New Record Friday, US Tour!

This Toronto 4 piece band is getting ready to release their latest record “Basic Behaviour” this Friday February 23rd. You can have an early listen to FRIGS' few tunes on their bandcamp page. The record opens with a wild track “Doghead” that might have you a little bit puzzled as to what the record is all about. It acts as a great hook though as the next track “Talking Pictures” settles into a dark alt-rock setting with some 80’s vibes to it. They have a calm yet frantic energy about them. These guys and gal will be heading through the States including a stop in Austin for SXSW in the next couple months. Their tour finishes up right here in Toronto at the Garrison on April 7th. – Kris Gies


Josh Mover & the Shakers - New EP, Shakin' The Monarch Tavern 02.23

Toronto indie rockers Josh Mover & The Shakers just dropped their latest EP on Friday February 16th. The first single “When I Steal Your Heart” is an alt-rock love tune with catchy melodies and a healthy dose of 90’s throwback energy.  The main inspirations for this record were an unfortunate end to a relationship and anything by Tom Lehrer. Mover & The Shakers are celebrating the release of “Into a Ghost” at The Monach Tavern on February 23rd with Dante Matas and Locomotive 8. – Kris Gies

Tongue Patrol - Unusually interesting new single "God B With You"

Interesting avante-garde indie rock from Tongue Patrol. Their latest release is a single called “God B With You.” It’s jangly and makes you feel like you can’t see in focus. The chorus section takes a complete left turn with a hectic loud/quiet dynamic. If you’re tired of what you usually listen to then Tongue Patrol will give you a shot of what you need. They are having a double release party with Mother Tongues on Friday February 16th. Nikki Fierce is also the bill. – Kris Gies
