His star only keeps on rising: Ben Caplan and the Casual Smokers

The Marriott Hotel on Bay Street was transformed from its typical hotel stature into a sort of agora for music-types — promoters, producers, managers and musicians of all sorts mill about, chatting with each other and on their phones. They’re sitting around, looking utterly exhausted. But hey, it’s Canadian Music Week, and nothing less than extreme… Read More ›

Consider the Balance Broken: An Interview with Chloe Charles

Bartenders are lighting candles around the venue, and band members are mixing tracks on their computers at the bar. Her publicist, manager, and agent are all in deep prep, moving around the room as a family would, smiling at her between placing cards and nutty snacks on the tables, and sending an encouraging look her… Read More ›

Keep Your Eyes Peeled for: Rad Habits

Talking with Rad Habits about power pop, the understatement of Big Star, and getting Dad to like your songs. It’s a foggy, rainy, and shitty day as I sit down with vocalist Dylan Bowden and guitarist Mark Fosco of Rad Habits. Days like this beg for a band with a brighter disposition than the never-ending… Read More ›

The Bills Are Back? Yes Please!

Every location is defined by a musical flavour.  Music enters the canon and is permanently linked to that place – the Blues for the Mississippi delta, the jig or reel for Ireland, and surf rock for California.  With their fourth album, Yes Please, The Bills look to create a sound that generations to come will recognize… Read More ›

Keep Your Eyes Peeled for: Matthew de Zoete

I don’t know about you, but ever so often, I crave to be totally immersed in a good story. So, when I stumbled upon Matthew de Zoete’s latest album, Colour Film, I prepared myself for a good storytelling as he suggested I should: I dimmed the lights, put on a good pair of headphones, and sat… Read More ›

Keep Your Eyes Peeled for: Cai.ro

It begins with the hush of an acoustic guitar, and it carries you over with solemn vocals. You are enticed to surrender to the swells of its melody and without warning, you are thrushed upon the shore. Undefined by a single genre, Cai.ro’s debut EP, “Young Love” carries you through unpredictable surges, with minimal sounds to… Read More ›
