Free Willy – Remember The Alamo

Cards on the table, I have to admit that I am really not a country fan. True, I do like some bluegrass and I’m a big fan of folk, but...


Von Strantz – Apple of Your Eye

Typically I’d be able to dish on just what genre of music I’m covering and compare indie artists to whatever groups they took influence from, but it’s not so easy...


It’s Just Craig – Dark Corners

I must say that ‘Dark Corners‘, the latest album to come from the self-purported Americana/Goth Country artist It’s Just Craig, AKA Craig Helmreich certainly has a bit of strange throughout it. There’s just...


Jacqui L – PLANET PARALLEL 5

On Jacqui L‘s own SoundCloud page, it said that her latest (and perhaps debut) album ‘Planet Parallel 5‘ is “difficult to describe”. I don’t think that is so. It’s fairly easy...


Kris Heaton – World Gone Mad

Bluesy pop-rock artist Kris Heaton has had a very expansive history with regards to the artists he’s played with. He’s opened for the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, and he’s collaborated...


Oceanlux – Versa Vice

First off, I have to put my cards on the table. Pop is not typically my go-to genre. Neither is dance music. Nor is synth. And yet, I now have...


Belushi’s Toilet Season 1 Out Now!

With the legalization of drugs being a hot topic right now, this newly released sci-fi/rave original series considers the “not so distant future”, where recreational drugs have become socially accepted...


Zealots Desire – The Fool

I wasn’t sure about Zealots Desire’s latest single when it dropped this summer. But ‘The Fool‘ turned out to be me because it is a pretty kickass song! The strained...


Toronto Youth Shorts – Goree

In the Transitions collection of the Toronto Youth Shorts film festival, there is a touching tale of a young girl struggling with the cultural expectations of her mother and grandmother....


Last Bullet – Sin

Holy shit! It’s been so long since I’ve actually enjoyed some heavy, denim-and-leather-clad rockers doing their thing. If you’re a fan of Alice In Chains, Godsmack, Stone Temple Pilots or...


Small Reactions – RXN_002

It’s here! Some of you may recall a review I did of a great new single that had some wonderfully old flair from the Atlanta-based nerve pop band Small Reactions....


Goodnight, Sunrise – Altar

Toronto-based band Goodnight, Sunrise has released a new video in an effort to share with their audience an experience about a darkness that has consumed many people. ‘Altar‘ is all...

The Toronto Youth Shorts film festival is coming up this weekend. I’ve been lucky enough to get my hands on some previews of some of the works on display this...

Promoting the works of local youth for nearly ten years now, the Toronto Youth Shorts film festival is just about underway. Kicking off with a big red carpet opening this...


Brother Oliver – What Will Be Will Be

If you’re looking for some slick, psychedelic, Southern folk-rock then look no further! South Carolinian folk-rock group Brother Oliver has just released their latest single ‘What Will Be Will Be‘...


Ale Torriggino – Blue Light

If you’re a fan of John Mayer…or even Oasis (yes I realize how very distant these two musical dynamos are), then you should definitely check out Ale Torriggino’s latest album ‘Blue...


If The Walls Have Eyes, Then They Made Me Open Mine

It’s not every day that a piece of art changes the way you look at the world. Lately, with the plethora of mindless entertainment (see most superhero movies or the...


Les Murs Ont Des Yeux (“Walls Have Eyes”) – Toronto Fringe

These walls can talk. And they have something important to say. “Les Murs Ont Des Yeus” is a French language play, written in 2008 by playwright A.M. Matte. Its performance...


Westing – I haven’t Been Feeling Myself

If ever you’re looking for Westing – that quiet, acoustic, and solo music act…don’t. Westing has become something much more. That’s not to denigrate the old ways, but moving on...
