Forks and Knives – Self-Titled Album Review

With their homemade press kit, Forks and Knives seem like a band with DIY roots right off the bat. But unlike many bands that throw together a press kit, write a personal note, and call that enough, Forks and Knives manage to come off as professional despite being hugely unconventional. Included in their package was...Read...

Heavy Feather – Self-Titled Album Review

Heavy Feather’s debut album sounds like a work in progress. Although the members of Heavy Feather clearly have experience, made obvious by their musical abilities, there’s a general lack of cohesion throughout the album. It seems like they each had several ideas that they all really wanted worked into the album, causing things to get...Read...

Sugarplum Fairies – Chinese Leftovers Album Review

In the first few moments of listening to Sugarplum Fairies’ Chinese Leftovers, the influences of Mazzy Star, Belle and Sebastian and Cowboy Junkies are unmistakable. Though the vocals of Silvia Ryder aren’t exactly sultry, they have a steady depth. Nonetheless, they don’t offer any surprises. Several tracks present droning harmonies comparable to those of Belle...Read...

Oneida – Rated O Album Review

There are certain artists throughout history that insist their art extends forth into the world from another dimension of consciousness lurking just below surface level awareness. To create, all they need to do shut off their regular thought patterns and dip into this infinite wellspring; they funnel a source of unlimited energy into the mold...Read...

Narrows – New Distances Album Review

I’ll admit right off the bat that this might not be the most unbiased review. As a massive fan of the heavy monstrosity that was Botch, any CD with a sticker that says for fan of Botch or any band featuring ex-members of Botch will find its way into my rotation almost immediately. Same goes...Read...

Living With Lions – Make Your Mark Album Review

Part of the current ’90s pop-punk revivalist scene, Vancouver, BC’s Living with Lions joins the ranks of bands like Fireworks, This Time Next Year, First to Leave and Broadway Calls in recalling the halcyon days of Fat Wreck bands. Picking up where their Vancity brethren Daggermouth left off, Living with Lions plays an easily digestible...Read...
