If you were like me, and real life forced you to miss Sappyfest this weekend, you apparently missed a life changing weekend that peaked when Charles Bradley took the stage. Fear not sad reader, as this Friday you can attend one of the best shows to hit Halifax in forever. Dog Day, Apollo Ghosts & [...]
Whale Skin - Lady (Live)
I don’t really know anything about Whale Skin, other than that they are apparently from Halifax and they make some funky electronic jams, and that’s good enough for me really.

Hot damn this is heavy, but when it’s a new group featuring pieces of Kestrels and VKNGS, what do you expect? Grab this jam from their new 7″ split with Stalwart Sons.
MP3:: Union of the Snake - Decades
How shall we see off this Tuesday? With dancing of course, and the Whaleskin remix of A.A. Wallace’s Shake It Out will do rather nicely.

Considering how many people contributed to the Gordon Lightfoot project, it’s not surprising that a few missed the deadline.

Records were found by zine mail orders or cheap comps handed out at shows. Before bands like Simple Plan were shitting out songs for tweens, The Lillingtons, The Queers, Good Riddance [...]
In the immortal words of Kamaal Ibn John Fareed, Jazz, (We’ve Got). In fact, starting this weekend, we shall have all of the Jazz. The 25th Anniversary edition of the Halifax Jazzfest kicks off this weekend, and does so in fine style. Not only will there be a Jazz-party cruise featuring much-loved Halifax klezmer-funketeers Gypsophilia [...]
With the fantastic bit of news that exploded the internet yesterday, we figured it was time to get off our collective asses and post the grainy, not yet edited videos we have from Dan Mangan‘s visit to herohill for our inaugural house show. Originally, the idea was to edit the videos, make them funky, [...]
This one is pretty special. Dog Day is about to kickstart the campaign for their new album, Deformer, the first full length release on their own label. I can’t think of more talented band that has had to deal with as much shit as Seth and Nancy, so going at it with full control is [...]
