The Moody Tulips - "Snarky Baby" EP, Smiling Buddha on 01.27!

Just when you think Toronto can’t produce another stellar garage rock band here come The Moody Tulips. Less psych than a lot of the currently booming garage bands though. The Moody Tulips lean more towards the garage pop end of the spectrum with their catchy melodies and guitar licks. However they still keep the lo-fi dream alive. They released their debut record last month. “Snarky Baby” is a 6 song EP that’ll get you dancing and singing along to their fun jams. They play the Smiling Buddha on January 27th with Weakened Friends, Feels Fine and the Mooks. – Kris Gies

 





Nervous Dater bring their indie pop punk to Bushwick Public House on 01.05

Nervous Dater gives us the best parts of early 00's pop punk (the energy and fun) minus the worst parts (the whiny vocals). Guitars get big and the lyrics tell stories of bad decisions, broken friendships, and feeling like a hot mess. Singer Rachel Lightner carries most of the band's tracks as if she's gleefully marinating in life's ugliness over the band's fun, catchy rock. They released full length "Don't Be A Stranger" in September 2017. Favorite lyrics: "It's hard to ask for help if you don't really want it / passed out on the train in your own vomit", "I still dress just like I'm sixteen / and I still get way too drunk during the week", and the shimmer of hope: "I'm so fucking lucky / you're so fucking lucky". They play Bushwick Public House on Friday, January 5th. We are looking forward to seeing what this band does in 2018 as their tour date book already has them playing Pouzza Fest in Montreal in the spring. - Meghan Rose





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
