Who : Blonde Acid Cult from NY.
What : Hearing some great things about this band these days. Blonde Acid Cult are ‘stealing cultural vibes from the bestStax Recordsand putting them in the blender with the suicide droning of theStooges ‘. Below, they’ve pulled off a great Kasabian -esque jam I’m movin to.
Song : Calypso .
Ever wonder what happened to controller.controller and No Dynamics? Well, the rhythm section of the former along with the lead singer of the latter now comprise Lioness, Toronto’s newest bass-busting disco rock trio. Formed in the winter of 2007, the band has been building a buzz playing select gigs and afterparties for bands like !!!, You Say Party! We Say Die! and K-Os. Now they’ve got an EP to show the world, recorded by Rob Sanzo (controller.controller) and mastered by Nilz Patel (Bjork, Daft Punk, Air).
I can’t remember the last time I wrote about a band with no guitars….
Anyway, here’s the single (and the remix by Pilot Priest)
Where’s My Heart
Where’s My Heart (Hearts Rendered Pilot Priest remix)
Who : Chad VanGaalen from Calgary.
What : Best Canadian indie artist right now? Probably. Since we last wrote about him , his album (Soft Airplane ) has been tearing up the charts (3rd straight week at #1 on CBC radio 3 top 30, plus 8 weeks at #1 on earshot). Wow. He’s currently crossing the Atlantic to tour Europe with label mates Women , check his myspace for details.
Song : City Of Electric Light .
