MimasCats On Fire

Nothing like something with a good dose of post-rock every once in a while. Here’s Cats on Fire by Denmark’s Mimas. Its from an album called The Worries, which is already out in the UK (Big Scary Monsters), but hits American (maybe North American?) stores in June. Along with the mp3 is the video, directed by Andreas Sorensen. The song starts reminded me of early Broken Social Scene and ends with Mogwai-esque explosions. In the middle is a little bit I can’t quite put my finger on.

Who : The Break Mission from Brooklyn.

What : ‘Soothing, piano-laden ballads of moody pop-rock foreplay’ . Here’s the title song from this Brooklyn trio who are following up their self-released 2007 album (As Much Light As It Will Take ) with an EP of new material hitting the street tomorrow (titled The Prospect EP ). They’ve got some tourdates coming up, check their myspace page for details.

Who : My People Sleeping from Montreal.

What : A dreamy number somewhere in between Crimson and Clover and Neil Young ‘s ‘After The Goldrush ‘. Liking their sound though. This band comprised of James Irwin (vocals/guitar), Ruby Kato Attwood (Vocals/keys), Katherine Peacock (vocals/keys/discordian) and Pat Bastedo (percussion) are currently recording music but also starting to show up on the blogs. I’m interested to hear more.

I really like this song and video.

This video is preparing me for the weekend. I’ll be heading to Winterlude in Ottawa and if its anything like last year, we’ll be outside a lot in the freezy cold, but instead of knocking on doors with flowers we’ll be contemplating buying Beaver Tails and skating on the Canal. I bet they’ll be a bit of flasking as well.
