Contest:: Win 2tix to see Paper Beat Scissors & Olympic Symphonium @ IDOW

Thursday night @ IDOW features two fantastic acts getting together for a momentous occasion. New Brunswick folk veterans, The Olympic Symphonium, are fixing to release their new LP - The City Won’t Have Time To Fight - and herohill fav Paper Beat Scissors are going to warm the crowd at St. George Church.


Tim Crabtree has such a unique sound that it’s hard to put his ambient, folk melodies into word. Cinematic in scope, the newly official Canadian resident builds dynamic results with the most subtle, gentle touch. Each time I see Tim and whatever collection of players he has on stage with him, I leave speechless, so I’d highly recommend getting off the couch for this one.


For tOS, the new record is the result of a week of collaboration; an accelerated pace for a band known for taking relaxing step and crafting melodies that travel at the same reserved gait. The new recipe obviously fueled the boys in the studio, as the same ingredients (spot on harmonies, gentle picks, tasteful percussion) seem more alive this time around. The lead single, “Settle Down”, is as melodic and vibrant as any painting they’ve revealed to date.
