Rockfest 2016 Day One – Nostalgia Edition

Another year of Amnesia Rockfest shenanigans has come and passed, and what a year it was.

Robert Nix – Once In A Blue Moon – Album Review

Robert Nix – Once In A Blue Moon – Album Review

Once In A Blue Moon is the fifth studio album by Robert Nix (not the deceased hard rock drummer) and it plays a well-versed alt-rock sound with an 80s pop feel. The Toronto-based musician, who looks a bit like Ron Burgundy I might add, is working hard to carve out a nostalgic niche for himself. [...]

The Starved – Pretty Liar – Album Review

The Starved – Pretty Liar – Album Review

Dark psychedelic rock records are few and far between these days, with Iggy Pop‘s latest and possibly final record slowing down similar records from both Queens Of The Stone Age and Arctic Monkeys, but for those looking a good fix of moody punk rock, Toronto’s The Starved can feed your hunger.

The Regrettables EP – Album Review

The Regrettables EP – Album Review

With a name like The Regrettables, you better be damn sure of your sound, otherwise the puns are going to start flyin’. And luckily for you (and me) these mofo’s are.

Teo Milea – Open Minds – Album Review

Teo Milea – Open Minds – Album Review

Some people write narratives with words, some with visuals, but some very talented people can construct pseudo-narratives from music itself.
