Kalle Mattson - Water Falls

Kalle Mattson – Water Falls

Young roots rocker(s) Kalle Mattson (the guy or band? I thought they were a band before, perhaps not now?) is/are back with a new EP entitled Lives In Between. If the catchy, earnest sounds on display on the first single “Water Falls” are any indication (bonus points as always for the horn-laced outro), Kalle Mattson is moving in a very good direction - regardless of his/their current form. Those in Halifax can catch the band at The Carleton on May 20th, and check the website for other dates.

Dan Griffin - Yulia (Wolf Parade Cover)

Dan Griffin – Yulia (Wolf Parade Cover)

Wednesdays are made for cover songs. At least this is what I’ve heard, or rather, this is the premise I’m concocting to suit the needs of this post. But have a listen to Dan Griffin’s rather solemn, acoustic take on Wolf Parade’s tragic Cosmonaut opus Yulia and you’ll agree it deserved a posting. Griffin, also known as a member of current CDN rock radio faves Arkells, released a rather lovely 5 song solo EP late last year, which you can, and should, grab pour gratis via his website. If you like what you hear, and are in Ontario, you can catch Griffin at a number of dates around the province later this month.

New Scotland Records:: 45s Series is complete

Anyone that’s ever had the chance to talk music with Dartmouth’s patron saint of rock n’ roll knows how much music - the process, the creation, the curation, and the collection - means to Joel. It was with that in mind that Plaskett launched a series of 45s recorded at Scotland Yard with a collection [...]

The Slakadeliqs f. Justin Nozuka - Keep Breathing

If you haven’t heard The Slakadeliqs debut album The Other Side of Tomorrow, perhaps you should. This incredibly soulful and genre-bending effort is helmed by Slakah the Beatchild and features an interesting group of folks assisting him. Of all the albums I’ve heard bandied about for Polaris consideration thus far, this is one of the [...]

As I mentioned, it has a [...]
