Debut Episode Album Available for Streaming & Download

Aggression, despair, isolation, the search for existential purpose and meaning, Lost In the Head, the new EP from Episode, covers it. That sense of raw, rumbling torment, compacted into concise musical windows, covey thought/emotion in short order. It’s primal yet deeply personal, exposing wounds for all to see. Press play, and don’t blink.

   

Night Owl Festival 2018 - Top Gun Picks!

The annual garage/psych extravaganza is back on in Toronto this coming weekend. The Night Owl Festival has brought in some amazing bands from all over the world such as King Khan & The Shrines, Night Beats, Michael Rault, Pearl Earl and the Allah-Las but also boasts some of the top local bands on the circuit. Here are the locals you won’t want to miss:

Brenda – A Deli favorite; Brenda brings a big fuzzy intensity along with a unique loud/quiet dynamic that makes you wanna bang your head and lock your doors simultaneously. Brenda will be playing Friday at The Horseshoe Tavern.

Peeling – A part of the Buzz Records team; Peeling blends pure noise rock with eerie grunge influences. Peeling plays Saturday at Lee’s Palace

Vypers – Heavy garage rock influenced by that California psych sound. These guys have really come into their own with the release of their latest EP “Champion 100”. “Mr.Girl” is a highlight where they add some nice melodies to their garage rock chaos. Vypers also play Saturday Night at Lee’s Palace

Luna Li – She is known as the garage rock princess of Toronto. Luna Li plays both guitar and violin which makes for a wild combo. She released a new single “Silver Into Rain” over the summer and will be playing the closing show for The Night Owl Festival on Sunday at the Rec Room.

All shows will also include tarot card readings, facepainting, colouring and so much more. Ticket and event information here. - Kris Gies
