Secret Crush brings fuzz-soaked indie rock to Elsewhere 02.12

While Secret Crush’s music clearly comes with heavy debts to shoegaze, the band’s incorporation of indie rock immediacy gives them an added dimension. With guitars covered in fuzz and dripping reverb, there’s still plenty of the trademark shoegaze wash of sound, but the vocals tend to sit more upfront and there’s a tendency toward riffing that’s rarely seen in the genre. For fans of moody, effects-laden music, Secret Crush offers an excellent gateway to the more experimental corners of the shoegaze world. Get a taste of that sound when the band headlines Elsewhere on February 12th.

PREMIERE: Wonka Vision - "Application"

Back in April of last year, the eclectic and commanding jazz heads of Echo Pearl Varsity won our Artist of the Month poll, a designation given to those local acts that sit high and esteemed in the hearts of local music appreciators. The jazz-fusion post-rock hybrid group is led by principle songwriter Sam Luna, who has momentarily shifted his focus onto his solo endeavors, recorded under the moniker Wonka Vision. Presently, much won't be found online, but that's why we're pleased to share the premiere song and video from Wonka Vision's debut solo album, titled "Application."

Luna directed, edited and starred in the sci-fi Netflix series Black Mirror-inspired video, based on the overuse of internet and cellphones, and how digital technology is essentially numbing society. "[Cellphones are] disrupting our daily lives, taking up useful hours and all together just rotting our brains," says Luna. "Through the digital world we refrain from human experiences, which cause us to be less social, more self-conscious and more depressed."

The ending of the video goes further to display this point, with one of characters caring more about her online persona than reality, which is how Luna feels most people are in the current age. He even titled the whole DIY album, which is due out February 23, as White Mirror.

Numb out to "Application" below and be on the lookout for the White Mirror drop later this month.

New The Whips LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

A plethora of shot & beer pairings continuously flow especially in celebration of the Eagles ascension to the top of the NFL mountain. While you’re sipping in celebration, another City Wide Special recently became available. The Whips' new album exhibits that sweaty, dirt-under-the-fingernails, riff-riding infectiousness that we’ve grown to expect. Stewing in time-traveling retro-rock, these songs feel like they were always there. Yopu can catch them at Ortlieb’s on Tuesday, February 13, where they'll be supported by Madalean Gauze and The Othermen.

Dizzy - "Stars and Moons" Single

Straight outta Oshawa, Dizzy will be representing the GTA at SXSW in a couple months. They recently released a new tune “Stars and Moons”. It’s a very relaxed, synth based tune. Deep bass mixed with the soft female vocals carry the tune for the most part. The guitar lays in the weeds until a nice solo jumps in for the climax of the song. I hear some Coldplay influences in there. It seems as though Dizzy has made some quick work through the scene and are on their way to something big. Good luck to them in Austin! See the in Hamilton on February 9th at Twelveighty Bar & Grill along with The Kents, Post Romance and Emma Vandyk. – Kris Gies
