New Track: "Better Than You" - Petal

“Better Than You” is the first single off Magic Gone, the forthcoming album from Petal, which is due out on June 15 via Run For Cover Records. Juxtaposing the rough grit of the instrumentation with the clarity of the vocals, provided by Kiley Lotz, a narrative of personal/private struggle against the external projection emerges. Finding a balance between the bright and the bleak, it's emotively energetic. Petal, along with Body Guard, will be support for Cave People’s record release celebration on Thursday, April 12 at Boot & Saddle.

First Base - "Not That Bad" LP, Playin' Hard Luck Bar 04.04

Toronto power-pop quartet First Base have recently released a new LP titled “Not That Bad” on Drunken Sailor Records. This record delivers exactly what you would expect from First Base…catchy hooks, impeccable harmonies and altogether well-crafted songs executed to perfection. Especially as the weather gets warmer you’ll be cranking these tunes as you roll down the windows. The title track sounds like an oldies pop rock tune that’ll put a smile on your face as you take that special someone out for a milkshake at the local diner. “Not That Bad” is available on Drunken Sailor Record’s Bandcamp. First Base will be opening for Patsy’s Rats along with Tough Age and Binos on Wednesday April 4th at Hard Luck Bar. – Kris Gies

The Tang - "I'll Try Harder Next Time" EP

Interesting lo-fi pop group The Tang have a very unique thing goin’ on. It sounds like 60’s pop drenched in shoegaze. Their latest EP “I’ll Try Harder Next Time” opens with a jangly, fun tune called “Deep Space Nine” which sort of takes you on a journey through space…but only if space had sunny afternoons with beautiful green grass. Maybe it does…I have never been there. If you’re into any of the psych influenced tunes that are popular these days then have some Tang. – Kris Gies
