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!

Some Toronto Talent Comments | Dec 29 2008

With the snow and the cold and having to travel everywhere its a wonder how people do work in Toronto, but doin’ work is what we d0. Check out the new RMX of PSDO:NMFO from Barletta and RMX of Golden Girls A Kids by VLSonN.

Pseudonympho - Blow It Up Your Nose (barletta remix)

Golden Girls - A Kids (vlsonn remix)


Barletta Does Boom Boom Boom Comments | Nov 11 2008

I’ve been so incredibly busy with school and work I am slacking a bit with content. Sorry bout that I’ll try and get my life together. Anyways the new drop from Dj Barletta is an edit of The Outhere Brothers - Boom Boom Boom dating back to ‘94. Even if a club was empty the place would pop off that is how sick nasty this track is. 

The Outhere Brothers - Boom Boom Boom (Barletta Edit)


Halloween’s Best Best Bass Lines… Ever, Y’all Comments | Nov 02 2008

Are you going to vote? I am I feel it’s my personal responsibility as a Canadian to voice my opinions about global politics. I am adding The Cobrasnake to each and every ballot I get my hands on.

So I put in a few seconds of listening to poppin’ tunes with killer bass lines. Well I’ve come to conclude that these are some of my fav. and that you probably need to listen to them/download them. These base lines may not be that tech, but there solid, poppin’ and dirty beyond belief. Show some love for these artists cause they know where its at! I posted music from many artists/producers from around the world… and my man DJ Barletta/Mansion shoutin’ love from their show at Circa last night. Um… YESSSS!!!!

Anyways, how was y’all Halloween? did you dress up in some zanny gool outfits? or held your personal respect and just go as yourself? I went as Sam from Wasted Push-ups. No one got it… is that my fault? Should I have been the Henrik Vibskov Jumper? Should I have been scary like a warlock from World Of War Kraft?

Tricky - Council Estate (Mowgli wobblin mix)

Don Rimini - Hools(Dj Barletta Edit)

A - Track Say Whoa (Big Nasty RMx)

3 is a crowd - Take It Back (HeavyFeet RMX)

ACDC - Thunderstruck (Crookers RMX) - also proabbly one of the most legit shows i’ve been to…


Empire Of The Sun can walk on dreams and The Killers are dancers Comments | Oct 24 2008

Empire Of The Sun are one of those bands from Australia that are proving there are no “bad” music coming from the land down under. Empire Of The Sun consist of Nick Littlemore of Pnau and Luke Steele of The Sleepy Jackson. Who knows I could be hatted for this reference but Empire Of The Sun kind of reminds me of a Australian MGMT in a with their easy listening pop psychedelia. Many people have been claiming that the remix of Walking On A Dream by Sam La More (Sam Littlemore the brother of Nick Littlemore) is the best rmx of the song. While it is good, my vote goes with VanShe Tech remix. Empire Of The Suns debut album is currently available on iTunes - watch the video and when you see the album link click it and it will talk you to the iTunes store.

The new song by The Killers does not suck, it is just as authentic and majestic a band can get. Noting The Killers are getting weirder and more obscure their music keeps raising the bar for the fusion between Indie Rock and Alternative music. Human starts off with similarities to U2 and blends into a more familiar sound of When You Were Young but making sure that they are not just banking of the sound and success of their previous hit. I found Human also shares similarities with the Toronto group Put The Rifle Down. Aside from the roaming majestic animals I am in awe of Brandon Flowers feather vest… like what? A-mazing. The Killers new album Day & Age is being released November 25, 2008.

The Killers - Human

I’ve been playing around with new music video and Overlay.TV’s interactive features for online video. That’s how I addeed all the dynamic content, text and links into the videos. Help the artists out and link to where you can buy their albums/mp3’s online. Overlay.TV allows you to link through the videos you post to itunes/beatport/amazon etc. YE!


Probably the happiest people alive! Comments | Oct 21 2008

Matt and Kim are an infused indie pop duo from Brooklyn with raw and catchy tunes. Their track Yea Yeah which really allowed them to take off came out over a year ago and they have done it again with the newly released Daylight single [video above]. I first say Matt and Kim in Toronto last summer when they played at Mod Club and quickly realized that they are probably the happiest people I have ever seen. Their whole set both of them had a huge smile across their faces and were authentically loving life being super fun and just playing their music. If you want proof if this claim just watch their new video for Daylight or their Yea Yeah video, happiest people ever!

Down In This Rapture Of Love Comments | Oct 20 2008

Down In This Rapture Of Love is a slice of the song Rapture ft. Sebastien Grainger by datA. I posted it originally when discussing how when Canadians and French musicians colaberate they just win at life. Finally the video was released for Rapture which has some killer motion graphics as i am sure you have already noticed. It was directed by Nicolas ANDRE & Damien VIGNAUX of Incog Design Büro.

Anyways here are a favorite RMX’s by Pacific! and Rapture pt. II.
