NXNE is just around the corner. Everyone is scrambling to make their schedules, trying to find the hottest bands. It's all a mess. There are so many bands to go through. How does one differentiate one band from the other? Sure, you can listen to a mix tape or playlist and pick out bands by actually learning about them. However, I am now a busy man with a busy day job that prevents me from doing such things. Instead, I have decided to scan the list of bands and just pick bands that interest me entirely based on their [...]
Solo and side projects are always a very interesting ordeal. They put a spotlight on an artist and give them a dignified voice and choice of expression, usually free of the confines of his previous or main roles as a musician in other projects. With side projects, we hear the true and unfiltered expression of an artist which we may have never heard or seen otherwise. Sometimes not exactly panning out as intended (Chris Cornell) and other times, ending up to be very successful (Brian Eno, we salute you), a solo career move can make or break a career. In [...]

On April 23, 2013, File Under: Music will release the sophomore album, Mary Magdalene, from the critically-acclaimed Vancouver band, The Crackling. The ballad features backing vocals from Vancouver's Children's Choir that were recorded in Vancouver's historical Christ Church Cathedral. The 10-track album was recorded at Afterlife Studios. Mary Magdalene comes on the heels of the band's successful Ashen EP, which had a limited release in 2012. The name The Crackling refers to songwriter Kenton Loewen's favorite sound, the sound of burning. From gentle taps of smoking wood, to violent sparks [...]

I look on northern soul the same way I look at the output from all those brilliant Nuggetsy 60s garage bands. While your garage bands were using the hits of The Kinks and The Who and whoever as the blueprint and building blocks for their own skewed short, sharp 2 and a half minute attempts at chart stardom, the acts who would eventually constitute what became know as the northern soul scene were aping the more well-known records coming out on Motown, Stax, Atlantic et al. Not all, to be fair, there are hundreds and thousands of perfectly [...]
Kenton Loewen is a Vancouver musician who works with the name The Crackling , but he might do well just to go with Dave Bazan Jr. I meanest this in the sincerest form of flattery, and also with the intent of letting you know how much we love both Bazan and our newly annointed Bazan Jr. Loewen, with help from various collaborators is set to release the Ashen EP on May 22nd, and you should expect to find some similarities to early [...]

Okaaaay, HPX '11 is almost upon us, so what better way to continue getting ready for it than with another #hpx2011 edition of the Video Hits? I can think of anything, and I already have this post queued up, so let's do it. FYI: Southern Shores are awesome. The Ack said as much when we posted on this Haligonian duo's EP Atlantic some time ago, but honestly, I have yet to get tired of it. It's infectious stuff, lighter than air instrumental music which hearkens back to the electronic sounds of [...]
