BRAIDS – Native Speaker Album Review

Canada has given us a lot to work with in terms of music, specifically indie rock. Scores of baby Brooklyn bands have tried to imitate the success of giants like Broken Social Scene, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, and Arcade Fire, with mixed success. BRAIDS is one of Canada’s most recent cultural contributions, and it is...Read...

Parlovr – Self-Titled Album Review

Parlovr are a three-piece out of Montreal, crafting a self-professed “stripped down, salacious and spastic” breed of indie pop. Their self-titled debut is bristling with nervous energy, somehow corralled into concentrated, three minute bursts of melody. Underneath all their shambling glory, many of the songs collected here are reminiscent of your other favorite Canadian band,...Read...

SIFF 2010 The Rest of the Fest Film Recaps

And so another year’s Seattle International Film Festival comes to a close. You might be saying “Hey! You only watched like eight movies? What kind of publication is this?!” Tut tut, readers.  We here at Redefine watched a boat load of movies! We just couldn’t find the time/space/wherewithal to write about every single one. But...Read...

The Wild Hunt (2009) Film Review

The Wild Hunt Director: Alexandre Franchi Canada, 2009 Geexploitation has been a Hollywood trademark for years. From “Revenge of the Nerds” to “Superbad” to “Fanboys,” even when geeks are the heroes they are still tragi-comic characters with barely a single dimension to their name. Geeks are not real to the Hollywood scriptwriter. Their feelings and...Read...

Sofia Ajram Has Some Magical Tendencies.

Montreal-based photographer and designer Sofia Ajram is stupidly multi-talented. I’m not sure whether to pay more attention to her photography or her design. But it’s her designs that really stand but to me, because they’re from her experiments in “Make Something Cool Every Day”. It’s amazing what some people can crank out on a daily...Read...

SXSW 2010 Festival Review: dd/mm/yyyy, Liars, Duchess Says, Explode Into Colors, Flying Lotus

This SxSW, FIVE REDEFINE staff members were on hand, rendering it the biggest SxSW for REDEFINE yet. And because three of us definitely attended many a show together, my top five list definitely shares some commonalities with Tim Vordtriede’s. Nonetheless, different takes by different folks, so duplicates be damned, man.   5. Flying Lotus www.flying-lotus.com...Read...

Priestess – Prior To The Fire Album Review

The first thing that pops into my mind while listening to this Montreal four-piece’s sophomore effort is, “Who came first, the Priestess or The Sword?” And then I think about how The Priestess And The Sword sounds like a horrible ’80s fantasy movie replete with scantily clad bodybuilder types and busty wenches aplenty. The lyrics...Read...

Plajia – listen up. Music Video

Canadian band Plajia have a video for their song “Kyaan Done,” directed by Adam Owens. It’s only a couple weeks old, and features the wonderful voice of Patrick Pleau, whose record we reviewed here. Reggae-influenced tracks might be a bit passé, but I’m liking this one. Ω
