Big Frasier @ Declaration Muse: An Indie Canuck Bash

It's a gorgeous day in Southern Ontario. So what better way to enjoy then to listen to some new tuneage. Big Frasier is a 4 piece rock outfit based in Toronto. They released their latest album "Tussle" in July 2014. I jammed out to "Love is a Paperback" first. It's a pretty greasy blues based tune. Solid rhythm laying the foundation for some slippery guitar licks over top. I particularly liked the line about "woman is a danger cat"....paying homage to one of my idol's Dean Murdoch. So clearly Big Frasier knows how to giver and probably shotguns Pilsners on the reg. There's definitely some Black Keys/White Stripes influence except they have a bass player. So it's pretty bad ass to say the least. They'll be playing Porcelain Records in Hamilton on Saturday July 4th so I suggest you go get good n' sloppy.- Kris "Big City" Gies

DC's punk/emo revival duo The Obsessives release a single and announce their upcoming debut LP

Some of us are starting to feel old, hearing genre names like "emo revival". Whatever happened to emo music after those side-bangs days of myspace yore? No matter the year, there will always be kids getting their hearts broken apart and making bold eyeliner decisions, and the music must follow. DC's two-piece The Obsessives have been pals since childhood, and channeled the final bits of their collective teenage angst into a debut LP entitled "Heck No, Nancy" (a direct quote from Slaughterhouse Five). The LP was written and recorded within their last few weeks of high school and will release this September. They put a single out just a few days ago - "Daisy"- that follows two people from the first time they meet and discuss books and solitude (love-at-first-sight seems to hit peak hour during study hall/detention) to the present where their friendship "has grown into a sad display". This may be their debut LP, but it will be the duo's fourth musical release within the past three years. The Obsessive's have got the spunk of The Front Bottoms paired with the proud fetal position perfected by Dashboard Confessional. "Heck No, Nancy" is available now for pre-order via local label Near Mint on vinyl and Bandcamp.

Teen Violence @ the Smiling Buddha

Teen Violence is a really cool power pop group from Kitchener. We got to hear them rockin the Painted Lady for NXNE. I fired up their latest tune "Misery, Let Me Go" and I know for a fact I'll be singin this greasy pop jingle in my head all day tomorrow. They have popiness like Chris Murphy Sloan songs with some of that garage Andrew Scott Sloan songs mixed in. It could really be from the 60s. I'm actually listening to it again back to back. On tour see them 7/8 @ the Smiling Buddha w/ Kiss Me Deadly.- Kris "Big City" Gies

Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah Support Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas at Slims 7/8

The San Francisco based psychedelic gospel band, Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah will be performing live at Slim’s in San Francisco on July 8th. They haven’t played a Bay Area show since April so if you’ve missed them, this will be your opportunity to experience their entrancing live show again.

The band will be supporting the fresh, postmodern blues rock band, Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas. This is going to be an exciting show because the energy and poignancy of both band’s understanding of throwback American music shines through their music. We love their interpretations of blues and gospel and appreciate the authenticity of their musical execution. These bands are pros and they play like it.

Lee Gallagher and Jessica Hernandez' voices will pretty much blow you away. Make your way out to Slim’s on July 8th! You won’t regret it.
