“Oxbow” is dub-inflected electronic bass music, with intrigue, mystery and a definite sense of danger.
Vancouver duo Porteau enchant us with dreamy, evocative music.
Based in Kamloops, The Houses (Where We Grew Up) are the duo of Rob Wikstrom and
Sean Schneider. “Two Lonely Men” is noisy pop with idiosyncratic quirks.
Toronto/Victoria band Hush Pup (Ida Maidstone, Fizzy Adams and Torrie Seager) thrills us with their impeccable dream pop. The video (by Mike Perreira) uses subdued imagery, bathed in reds, purples and oranges, to capture the trio’s magic.
“Oasis” is from the upcoming ‘Panacea’ album.
Raw, blistering oi/skin punk from Victoria’s Off the Clock.
More music from the Harbour City (Nanaimo). This time out it’s noisy, experimental rock. Did I mention noisy?
Exciting rock from Vancouver Island’s other city: Nanaimo.
