Fresh out of the oven, new music from Natural Sympathies (aka Regina’s Amber Goodwyn). “Hello” is lyrically and musically powerful, but it’s Goodwyn’s quirky touches that make it special.
Wasted Cathedral is the solo project of Saskatoon’s Christopher Laramee (Shooting Guns, The Switching Yard, and The Radiation Flowers). Dig the cool, atmospheric vibes of “Mean Street Dub”.
Despite the title, “Disco Dance/Disco Floor” is hardy throwback club music. More to the point, it’s Raeburn’s weird-ass take on kinda scorching garage rock. Cool.
PONTEIX grabs your attention with contemporary beats, but then takes you on a ride of psychedelia blended with the Saskatoon’s artist’s various leanings.
Saskatoon’s Secret Door go where few garage bands go — into outer and inner space. “Jupiter Bloom” has both a groovy and an electric edge, and it certainly gets cosmic.
Raw intelligence through the use of post-hardcore. That pretty much sums up the great sounds of Regina’s The Jump Off.
Hardcore duo Man Meat (Nicole Sanderson, Chelsea Martin) grind through a song called “Witch” (titled for reasons obscure).
