The Internet is sometimes amazing. A Toronto hip hop duo makes a song inspired by a reverred Brazilian artist. Said artist has no idea about the song. A Portuguese graphic artist is inspired to create a wonderful video for the song, and gets a friend in Brazil to inform artist about the song and tape [...]

Colleen Rennison has the type of voice that makes you speak in cliches or reference artists usually identified by one name. Whiskey soaked. The Mississippi. Janis. Etta. Those are the easy and overused terms you get any time a big voiced female howls over bluesy riffs, but Colleen’s case, they fit like skinny jeans… or [...]

Three Six Mafia vs. Dazz Band – Let It Stay Fly (Skratch Bastid Blend)

Ugh, have I ever mentioned that spring in Halifax is mighty god damn depressing? Well if I know you IRL, as the kids say, then surely you know I have, cause I love to bitch about it. Well we’re on our 3rd straight day of a rain & cool temperatures combo, so I could use a pick-me-up song. Here’s a dandy from the legendary Skratch Bastid which features some of the south’s finest flowing over Let It Whip (Whoomp!) from the fantastic Dazz Band. Catch SB on his upcoming Skratch Of All Trades mini-tour, which looks like it’s going to be pretty awesome.

This past weekend, Record Store Day came and went (I now own a fantastic Justin Townes Earle 45, so it worked out for me), and even in the number of “exclusives” was far too limited for an event of such increasing popularity, it has spurred a solid new trend. Bands unable to afford vinyl (or [...]

The Long Distance Runners:: Election Day

It’s Friday and the sun is shining brighter than Tiger Woods’ teeth. It’s the type of fake Spring day that deserves the smell bbq wafting skyward, condensation from ice cold beer bottles pooling on tables, and summery rock gems exploding from back decks. Newfoundland’s Long Distance Runners give off a gritty, Velvets type cool on [...]
