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!

Put The Rifle Down Comments | Jun 21 2008

Put The Rifle Down

My good buddy Dj Barletta just saw Put The Rifle Down in Toronto the other day and has since had me hooked on such melodic songs which seem to have taken a large influence from late 80’s pop rock (u2 maybe) which could maybe now be considered synth-pop-dance-rock.

Canadian Mens Wear Comments | May 28 2008

I know that there are great boutiques through out Canada but the two that come to my mind when I hear the term mens wear are Nomad Shop - Toronto and Reborn - Montreal. These two stores carry progressive international labels only found in a select boutique’s throughout the world. Some of my favorite labels brought to Canada by one or the other of these two stores are Comme des GarçonsCommon ProjectsCorpus ClothingNom De GuerreRobert GellerRoganSupremeSurface To Air, Visvim and W+H all available at Nomad Shop. At Reborn we have Henrik VibskovFifth Avenue Shoe RepairRaf Simons.

 I have never yet been to Reborn however Nomad is one of the best stores in Toronto I feel. Great service, great labels and a very humble interior.

FITC And Function 13 And G.R.L. Comments | May 10 2008

GRL Toronto Pixel Gallery

I was unable to make it to FITC this year in Toronto, I am going to get there some time though. Anyways Evan Roth and G.R.L. were one of the speakers and had some stuff for sale at Function 13 as well as having an installation of the Graffiti Analysis at Pixel Gallery. If your interested more in Graffiti Analysis see a previous post I did when they exhibited at MoMa. I was just super pumped when I found this photo of G.R.L bombin’ the CN Tower, so legit! Love it!
