Goosebump - Release Party at Lula Lounge 07.26

Goosebump are a groovy new band from Toronto. They have just released a new self-titled record which features the single “She Don’t Say Goodbye”. This tune is catchy from the second it starts. The disco rhythm section will keep your toes tappin’ and head noddin’. The way the rest of the instruments bring the song together is quite fascinating in it’s execution. Goosebump is having a record release party at Lula Lounge on July 26th along with Chandra Persons and Cosmic Resonance DJ’s. – Kris Gies

   

Patiohawk - "So Long" Video, Smiling Buddha 07.20

A fresh, new band from Toronto; Patiohawk blends indie rock with the blues. They released an album last year titled “Toastmaker” which contains the track “So Long”. This track features a nice acoustic riff. They might be goin’ for a “Going to California” by Zeppelin vibe on this track. It’s a mellow and conscious track which would give the album variety along with their more upbeat blues rock tunes. Patiohawk plays the Smiling Buddha on July 20th with Piines, The Micronite Filters and Nick Vescio. – Kris Gies

   

Kapri - Soulful Dance Single "Deeper"

Born in Edmonton, now living in Toronto; Kapri is a soulful dance artist known for her passionate performances and show stopping charisma. Last year she released her first single “Deeper”. The video is shot in a cool area of Toronto around Dundas/Bathurst known for its international food stalls and shows Kapri showing off her style and dance moves with the local crowd. The tune has a real throwback vibe to 90’s RnB with inspirations from Janet Jackson and Kylie Minogue. All around great track/video worthy of radio spins around the country. – Kris Gies

   

London Stone - "Neon Blind" EP, Bovine 07.18

London Stone are an interesting Toronto 4 piece rock band. On the surface I hear alternative rock with a hint of grunge. They have dance elements to their tunes as well which can be heard in the track “In Your Head”. The verses especially have a groovy style to them. The chorus comes in with a more epic arena rock sound. This tune can be heard on their “Neon Blind” EP. See London Stone perform live at the Bovine Sex Club on July 18th. – Kris Gies
