Ivory Hours @ Turtle Music Fest

In a musical era where there exists a plethora of easily likeable indie pop bands with an extensive collection of catchy, hook-laden songs, London’s Ivory Hours is a genuine standout. The most surprising thing about this band is that they are somehow still unsigned. However, they’ve benefitted by receiving professional production help from seasoned veterans João Carvalho (mastering) and Dan Brodbeck (producing) on their recent full-length Morning Light. Ivory Hours is a rather young band exhibiting the confidence of experienced musicians through bright, poppy guitar and vocal melodies. Lead single “Warpaint” is chock-full of delicate staccato guitar and tempo changes that mask the lovesick lyrics with lively hooks. Ivory Hours is both figuratively and literally making noise in Canadian indie rock, and are a can’t-miss act at the upcoming Turtle Music Festival on August 1st in Parry Sound. Could be worth the trip, me thinks. - Chris PJ D

Opposite Day's Bouncy, Robot-Filled "AI IOU" Music Video

This one’s just plain fun y’all. Opposite Day is a staple of the Austin scene that plays some of the most technical and pure fun music in Austin, a combo you don’t often get. This vid is their new track “AI IOU,” and it’s a series of shots that cut between the band doing their hard-playing, wild-beat thing and then a buncha robot shots that feel very MST3K. That’s a pretty good touchstone in terms of era as well, as this track feels quite outta the 90s though all beefed up with some heavier, mathrockier shit, and the idea of a wilder, more indie Barenaked Ladies that plays faster and punkier isn’t far off. It's fun too to get great tracks that aren't really about love or social issues or something pretty, but instead just about a cool ass concept that the musicians like; in this case a mufucking robot made from parts of other robots! Check the lyrics: "I am rememebering what happened to the parts that make me/I am a conscious agent assembled from other machines." That's the good scifi shit. Tune your robot ears and focus your android eyes on this thing below, and let the AI tell you all about its weird ol' self!

Video Review: "Wrong", by Nemes

It’s not easy to capture a band’s live energy in a recording or a music video, but that’s exactly what Nemes have managed in their new video for “Wrong”, the latest single off their debut full-length album I Carry Your Heart. This recording delivers the same infectious spirit that’s made Nemes one of the busiest touring bands in Boston.  Tightly-layered instrumentation provides support for attractive dual vocals, while Josh Knowles’ spirited violin adds unique texture and depth. Upbeat and deliciously catchy, don’t be surprised to find yourself singing it under your breath hours after your first listen. Catch them live at The Red Room @ Cafe 939 on Thursday, August 6.

Lipstick Junkies @ The Cavern Bar

Besides being an excellent name for a roller derby team, Toronto’s Lipstick Junkies exist solely to blend the yesteryear sound of funk with modern indie rock, all the while soaking it that neon-district downtown vibe. The rhythms are an appealing combination of bouncy, smooth and grooving. As evident in tracks such as Desire and Lighthouse, the melodies are infectious, and the sexual spirit of funk is effectively captured and expressed through the music and lyrics. In an age where traditional genres are becoming more manufactured, The Lipstick Junkies have retained the essence of funk-rock, and have achieved their own genuine sound. In a nutshell, The Lipstick Junkies are a band perfectly suited to the small-club-in-a- big-city environment. If you feel like getting your groove on, you can satisfy those urges by taking in The Lipstick Junkies @ The Cavern Bar on July 30th. - Chris PJ D
