In our ongoing pursuit to encourage, document, and connect creative expression across Canada, we cut through waves upon waves of ethereal sounds, wyld shreddery, and brooding drones. It is magnificent. Some of the best grips escape our grasping fists. We list them here:

Jim Wylde : Songs For The Brokenhearted From The Departed (www.iosound.ca :: Greenfield Park, Québec)

Bone Marrow : Samuel D. Girard (none :: Montreal, Québec)

The Cyrillic Typewriter : Your True Emblem (JAZ Records :: Vancouver, British Columbia)

COPCAR BONFIRE : Deep Forest (Free Digital :: Montreal , Québec)

Grease Truck : Old Grease (Swordwall Music :: Kingston, Ontario)

Midden : JOIE – Variations on Roopkund / Roopkund (Self Released :: Salt Spring Island/Vancouver, British Columbia)

Lunar Lemur : Punching Clouds (Trinket Trance :: Hamilton, Ontario)

Jer Nogood : Lawnmower Man (Self Released :: Victoria, British Columbia)(

Preston : (we don’t have one we’re too cool :: Edmonton, Alberta)

i.o : Burning Soul (self / entertainment systems :: victoria, British Columbia)

 

Notre quête constante visant à encourager, à mettre en contact et à décrire les pratiques d’expression créatrice au Canada nous fait traverser vague après vague de sons éthérés, de shreds déchaînés et de sinistres bourdonnements; et c’est magnifique. De véritables joyaux échappent parfois à nos mains avides. Ils sont énumérés ici :
