Still Boys + Offerings Fundraiser

June 29th, 2013 | Mp3 Posts | 0 Comments

So I’m heading back to Toronto tomorrow. I’ll be there for the month. I am beyond excited.

In other news, there’s a Toronto zine/free paper called Offerings that’s put out by some of the coolest peeps in the Toronto underground music scene (including Weird Canada peeps) and it covers some really cool, weird, avant-garde stuff. They’re holding a little fundraiser on July 19th at the most underground of Toronto venues – the always excellent Double Double Land – to raise some cash and keep it going. One of the acts performing is Still Boys – they make like cool, weird, “glitchy jack jams”, including those below 🙂

These kids Esterhazy from NYC go about making indie rock + reverb the right way; by not taking themselves too seriously. And it works.

This dude from AshvilleJackson Scott made some pretty, strangely dreamy sounds about a terrible, terrible event. Nothing else to say. Except that his album Melbourne drops July 23rd on Fat Possum. That’s all. (via Portals)

Niv Ast

Last night I went out partying with a buddy of mine in Tel Aviv. We hit up my favourite bar, Korduroy, and as I was ordering a beer, the bartending asked me if I wanted to buy a CD for ten shekels [a bit less than $4]. I was in a generous mood and not worried about money so I said sure – when’s the guy playing? I saw a sampler in the middle of the one-room bar, next to the wall where they project movies. The bartender said he’d just finished. “Oh well.” I had the CD. His name was Niv Ast. Popping it into the computer today, I had no idea of what to expect, other than something probably at least a little interesting, considering he was doing a one-man sampler thing at a total hipster bar. Turns out it’s pretty cool.

So there’s like this chick and she makes music as Ruby Pins and it’s like dark and all, but cool. (via Ad Hoc)
