Dominant Legs

This San Fran band sounds like it should be from Sweden. In the track below pretty melodies mingle above a bongo beat and for some reason I now feel the urge to hippie-dance around a campfire. Considering the song is called “Clawing Out At The Walls”, you wouldn’t think it would sound so incredibly pleasant.

Rich Aucoin

I’ve known Rich Aucoin for years now after hearing his stuff on a friend’s blog and meeting him at Over the Top Fest in 2007. Not only is the Halifax maestro super friendly, but he’s super awesome and getting pretty popular these days. At a packed Tiger Bar show this week I finally got a chance to see (and witness!) some of his new material in action and it is amazing. You can stream his recently-released Public Publication EP below. Also check out some footage of the man in action cuz he’s got one of the best live shows anyone anywhere’s ever seen.

You can also buy a dl of the EP off his website.

Finally one of the members of Radiohead steps forward to reveal that the band has been a bunch of alien creatures all along. Psh, yeah, like humans could create Kid A.

New Zealand dance-rockers Kids Of 88 bring it big time on their album Sugarpills. It’s way better as a whole than what’s on their myspace, and sure, the singles are solid, but the album tracks are better. Check out this bangin’ cut.

A buddy of mine from poetry class turned me onto his friend, Philip James, who happens to be a kick-ass Toronto sample-gazer. James passed me his little Nights CD-R EP the other day and it was awesome. Check out this cut from it.
