I just want to be a Brother and you should too! Comments | Jan 13 2009

A relatively new project coming out of Toronto is Brothers, with over 73 Billion friends on myspace already will only bring great things with such exposure. It also makes you want to be a Brother as well so add them and be part of the fun! Their rough and catchy tunes keep me listening and their energetic and hard hitting riffs and dancey melodies keep me doin’ work. In accordance with the blurb taken from Brothers myspace I too always fell that the more instruments adding to the depth of the music creates interest making it more fun to write, preform and listen to. This is exactly what they have done all while managing to keep the Brother count at 3 members. For a reference on this check out Man Man and their video on Pitchfork.TV.

Below is a wonderful description of Brothers taken from their myspace:

I’ve always thought music needed to have as many guitars/pianos/harmoniums/hand claps/voices as physically possible, with never ending sonic layers. BROTHERS is a very standard three-piece rock outfit. I’ve always thought that a song needed an enormous amount of annoying time changes to keep it interesting. BROTHERS has only a few annoying time changes. I’ve always been too nervous and critical of my voice to sing in other bands. In BROTHERS, I am the lead singer.

I can’t wait to hear more from these Brothers and be able to make it to one of their shows. For now just sit tight and enjoy these courtesy MP3s.

Brothers - Big Baby, New Chance

Brothers - Dancing in-the Streets!

Canada and France are winning music Comments | Aug 20 2008

Canada and France are winning 

There have been a lot of collabs appearing recently between Canadian musicians and Parisians. If it had to be summed up what the outcome of these collaborations are it would be winning music. Two examples of French and Canadian musical talent meshing is Chrome Knight which is Surkin’s White Knight with a new vocal track done by Dave 1 of Chromeo and DatA’s Rapture ft. Sebastian Grainger of the once DFA 1979 and Sebastian Grainger & the Mountains.

Surkin ft. Chromeo - Chrome Knight

DatA - Rapture ft. Sebastian Grainger

Do you know of any other revolutionary Canada / French collaborations that I have not mentioned ? If so let me know.

Komakino Store - Vancouver CA. Comments | Aug 06 2008

Komakino Store - Vancouver CA.

Komakino Store - Vancouver CA.

While searching for information about the label Komakino I came across a boutique in Vancouver Canada coincidentally called Komakino as well. The boutique carries a broad range of high end labels including Ann Demeulemeester, Damir Doma, Gianni Barbato, Julius, Number (N)ine, Passarella Death Squad, Raf Simons, Rick Owens, Sak, Simeon Farrar, The Viridi-Anne, and Undercover.

It seems the idea of the Guerrilla store started by COMME des GARÇONS.

I just want to point out they have a very functional and visually simplistic online store located here.

The Komakino Gurrilla Store is located 109 West Cordova St Gastown Vancouver Canada.
