Curtis Cooper Record Release Show at JB's March 15

Curtis Cooper’s full-length debut Laughing In Line could be simply considered folk-oriented singer/songwriter material. However, that label might carry a stigma that fails to take into account the diversity of sounds these songs represent. Cooper steers enthusiastic, soulful-driven narratives that clearly carry personal ramifications, but venture beyond that locality, booming forward in a determined folk-rock framework. It momentously marches, luring with a communal evocation. Abi Reimold (joined by a full band) melds calming catharsis with an agitated aggression that grabs the reins, taking control of emotive energy in explosive rockin' resolutions. Emmett Drueding sings songs steeped in the searching atmosphere of rural Americana, while the ghostly stir of Julia Rainer may send a shiver up your spine. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

PET SUN - DEBUT LP!

Pet Sun has finally released their first full length record and it's about time! If you've had the chance to see this garage group from Hamilton live then you're probably just as excited as I am. They're "Feel Like I'm Going Away" EP was a bad ass intro to the band but this record takes them to new sonic levels. New track "The Dawn" kicks off the record with a swift punch to the face before sliding into previously released single "Never Quit". I literally can't handle one of the tunes though...in a good way...you ever been on a bus or in public and you see someone enjoying the music on their headphones way too much? That's me listening to "It's So Sweet". However if I needed to choose a track from the album to be my wrestling entrance music it would have to be "Demo Spunk". When the beat kicks in with the vocals is when the pyro hits and I step through the fog and creep through the smog en route to a world championship. This record is the real deal. Pet Sun are currently touring through the States. Catch their CD Release Parties on April 2nd at Doors Pub in Hamilton and April 15th at the Silver Dollar in Toronto. - Kris Gies

New The Original Crooks and Nannies LP Available for Streaming & Download

Madeline Rafter & Sam Huntington, a.k.a. The Original Crooks and Nannies, just released a wonderfully intoxicating album in Ugly Laugh. The ten-song sophomore LP showcases the dynamic duo's natural ability to lay down ear-burrowing melodies over lo-fi, bedroom beats. Rafter's voice demonstrates a captivatingly beautiful versatility, with Huntington providing the right amount of playful accompaniment - thus, creating tunes worthy of your adoration. (BTW: Also, check out the twosome making the best/worst DIY wigs (out of their own hair) ever in the new music video for "Carry Me"!)





Addie Pray Not Leaving the Door Open at All Night Diner March 12

Addie Pray, a.k.a. Carmen Perry, of Ohio’s Sports catches listeners on her narrative line, with songs that provide an intimate fly on the wall perspective - not leaving the door open, rather transplanting you into her line of sight. Capturing intimacy in a realistic, relatable scale, she adapts it to life’s expected adventures and setbacks. What initially appears to be a simple picture gathers deeper meaning through binding details, à la Waxahatchee and Free Cake For Every Creature. Brandon Can’t Dance develop a twisting experimental pop paradigm. It's one with a constantly shifting position, engaging with it’s uprooted tones that range from fireside acoustics to eerie wave-rockers. The captivating lo-fi of Emily Yacina (who has collaborated with Alex G) is a sound you’ll feel instantly close to. The lineup is rounded into form by the hushed poetic folk of Yours Are The Only Ears. All Night Diner, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 8pm, All Ages (Photo by Julia Leiby) - Michael Colavita
