Fringe Review: Blink Blink Blink

3 years agoMusic / Indie Music : Indyish

Many people were turned away from Blink Blink Blink last night (including my mum, but I’m not bitter). The show sold out partly due to some particularly good buzz, especially on the actual handwritten buzz notes that get pasted up on the wall at the Fringe’s open-air headquarters on Rachel and St. Laurent. That’s why [...]

Fringe Review: Zack Adams Love Songs for Future Girl

3 years agoMusic / Indie Music : Indyish

Picking which fringe shows to go to is a bit of an art, if not a full-on lottery. I go based on a gut affinity to the title and blurb, and reviews if I can find any, though I always suspect them of having been written by friends of the acts and it feels unfair [...]

RALEIGH – Recent Victims of Van Break In

3 years agoMusic / Indie Music : Indyish

It’s a story heard all too often: touring bands having property stolen while out on the road. Less than a few hours into their journey, and fresh off a flight from Calgary, newstyle prog-rock trio Raleigh were the targets of a van break-in before their first show at Toronto’s Tranzac Club. Stolen items include a [...]

Erik Virtanen is a ScienceFiction Wedding

3 years agoMusic / Indie Music : Indyish

Erik Virtanen starts out ahead in music-making with a voice naturally armed with the agonized catch, the sorrowful scratch and twist, the sexy scrape usually saved for those who dedicate centuries to scotch and absinthe. Other vocalchorders would trade their best left hook or south paw for just one authentic drop of that sound: consolidated [...]

Alberto Arcangeli – Wheels and Love

3 years agoMusic / Indie Music : Indyish

Italian indie musician Alberto Arcangeli contacted us to let us know about this lovely little music video created for his song Wheels and Love by artist/animator Massimo Ottoni: Massimo used an experimental animation technique called “paint-on-glass”. Every single frame is hand painted on glass (he’s been locked away in his camera room for months). I [...]

Belle manière: A Review

3 years agoMusic / Indie Music : Indyish

There’s a knife on my desk, next to my computer. When I’m done writing this review, I’ll take the knife and stab myself repeatedly. Don’t worry. It’s a retractable blade, a plastic knife. Ashlea Watkin (sublime, as always) is quite poised when she walks onstage for Nicolas Cantin’s Belle manière. She is wearing a nice [...]

Songs: A Review

4 years agoMusic / Indie Music : Indyish

Three women. A koto player, a singer, a dancer. East meets West. Music meets dance. Voice meets bodies. At the back of the stage, a single passage of light. The dancer travels through the light; the light travels through the dancer. The voice: a woman from another time, from another planet. A woman from another [...]
