Noise-gazers Neaux release sophomore LP "Chain Up the Sun"

Neaux (pronounced "no") is duo Sierra Kay and Nick Fit. They describe their music as "the intersection of shoegaze and grunge" - which is actually pretty accurate. Sierra's wailing and delayed vocals and Nick's distorted chord progressions have a certain dark and tense quality to them, while the band's visual style matches their sonic appreciation for the '90s, as it appears evident in their music videos for the singles off "Chain Up the Sun," their sophomore album, released in November of 2017. Recent video Whistlegirl features an unsettlingly happy papier mache Mario-esque figure dancing in a living room. Favorite lyric: "just give me what i want / it doesn't have to be so hard." Favorite song: Stuck Like A..." - streaming below. - Meghan Rose

The Mendozaz - Brand New Toronto Punk Rock

The newest addition to Toronto’s punk scene…The Mendozaz bring the heat with 90’s inspired skate punk. Made up of former members of Crush Luther, The Danger Bees, Farewell Cool Reason and Divine Hammer. They released their debut record “Two Days to Retirement” this past November. It is filled with straight up pop punk tunes that could easily be heard while playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater for playstation. I hear almost a little bit of Michael Stipe in the vocals. So it’s a must-listen if you ever wondered how Stipe would sound with a 90’s punk band backing him. Johnny, Michael and Matty Mendoza have big plans for 2018 so stay tuned… - Kris Gies

Post-punk supergroup Savak plays Alphaville 1.18

With the members' resumes featuring names like Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up, Holy Fuck, Obits, and The Cops, Savak is an A-team of indie rock odd-balls, but the band’s music speaks for itself. Some moments come sharp with jagged edges and angular turns while others chime with rock ‘n’ roll jangle worthy of R.E.M. Savak’s 2017 album Cut-Ups shows the group flexing its creative muscle and making use of the members’ broad talents for a consistent but adventurous entry in the post-punk genre. The band will play it’s first gig of the year January 18th at Alphaville with The Effects, Patois Counselors, and Big Quiet. – Cameron Carr

Wine Lips - "Opera Ghost" Music Video

One of my favorite records of 2017 was from Toronto garage trio Wine Lips. The whole album is great front to back with wild guitar and a thumpin rhythm section that’ll keep ya groovin’. They nail the fuzzy garage tones while keepin’ the tunes catchy enough to appeal to more than just fuzzheads. In their video for “Opera Ghost” the band is competing against each other in a hot dog eating contest which looks a good time. Watch out…it gets messy. Celebrate guitarist/vocalist Cam’s birthday at the Bovine Sex Club on January 13th where Wine Lips will be joined by Séance Sisters and Possum. – Kris Gies
