The Holy Vowels - Soulful Overdrive in Latest Single "Body Pillow"

Bass n' drums two piece rock band The Holy Vowels have just dropped a brand new single “Body Pillow”. Both fellas share singing duties and include some nice harmonies in their garage, lo-fi jam. The verse section has some soul and the overdrive really kicks in for the chorus. Makes for a deadly combo. The Holy Vowels are hosting an evening of music at Paintbox Catering and Bistro on Friday July 26th. Special Guests TBD. – Kris Gies

   

Fonfur - Debut Pop-Rock EP "New Rules For Classic Games"

Fonfur is a four piece alt rock band from Toronto “playing anything and everything that can be found under the indie rock umbrella”. The members found common ground with influences such as Tokyo Police Club, Alt-J and We Are Scientists. In October of last year they released a 6 Song EP titled “New Rules for Classic Games” which include the catchy pop-rock opener “Denim Dogs”. Fonfur plays The Horseshoe Tavern on June 20th. – Kris Gies

   

Pussy Stench - Dirty New Video "Honey Wine"

Tea time folks…if you don’t want to get dirty then go put on the tea kettle while we talk about Pussy Stench. They are a filthy four piece grunge band showin’ off some heavy riffs. This half male/half female group just released a new video for their track “Honey Wine”. This is a heavy track full of angst. Their grunge attack is abrasive for the bulk of the song but breaks down into a doom inspired, melodic bridge that gives the tune a great dynamic. Pussy Stench will be hittin’ up Duffy’s Tavern in Toronto on June 19th with Specks and Los Senores. – Kris Gies

boy wonder - Vintage Video "Care", EP Release Party 06.14

Catchy and unique indie rock from Toronto is what I’m pickin’ up from boy wonder. His latest single is an acoustic ditty called “Care” that I think Jack White would like when he’s in his acoustic mood. It has an old school feel to it. The vocals are unusual in a good way and the video appears to be shot in a previous generation. A comical and self-depracating ending is the cherry on top of this video. Boy Wonder has his EP release show at 187 Augusta on Friday June 14th. – Kris Gies
