Horsehands' Tape Release Show Set for May 9 @ Lily Pad

Horsehands’ latest creation, Pissing Rain, runs the sound spectrum from straight-up punk to electro-infused jams--and that’s just in the first two minutes of the EP. The vocals are reminiscent of some bizarre Bowie/Krill collaboration, which, after thinking about it for awhile, would be one hell of an idea. “Yon” was definitely my favorite of the songs--hard, fast guitarwork, complete with some pop-punk palm mutes and a bridge that seems to take off into the stratosphere before abruptly grabbing you by the collar and yanking you back into the mosh pit. I also appreciated the strategic placement of the synths/keys in songs like “Dinner Time!”--they provide well-timed accents, elevating the sound of the songs without overpowering the rest of the music.

If you’re itchin’ to get a physical copy of Pissing Rain, the band will be celebrating their tape release show on May 9th at Lily Pad in Cambridge, MA. For more info about the event, click here.

League of Wolves

League of Wolves are heading to Canadian Music Week from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. So of course those prairie boys have sweet beards. They just released a self titled album. I fired into it...starting at the top with "Runaway". Groovy beats and mean electric guitar will get your outta your seat and over to the bar...you'll make it to the dance floor eventually. The next track "Ariella" had a more mellow vibe...could be reggae-sized if they really wanted to. Also showed off their harmonies. Nice variety in the top 2 tracks. They're playin back to back nights for CMW first on Wednesday May 6th at Rancho Relaxo then at the Bier Market on Thursday May 7th.-Kris "Big City"Gies

Brews Willis @ Lee's Palace

I've noticed the band name Brews Willis before and thought it was awesome. So of course I wasn't surprised when their tunes were pretty sweet too. "Party's Over" sounds like it came straight from the 90s. Props to the singer's mustache too. The next track was "Great Energy" from their previous release of the same name. "Great Energy" started with some cool reverby surf guitar and would morph into a full on punk rock song that has...yup...great energy. The ooh wee ooh's in the chorus added a nice touch. They're playing Lee's Palace on May 7th for Canadian Music Week. Killer gig for a deadly band. Go!-Kris “Big City” Gies

Bare Claws @ Smiling Buddha

Bare Claws for a 4 piecer from Newmarket, cathcy pop rock to the max! "Beautiful" from their self titled record has a nice mix of guitar an keys in the verse and the chorus is a beautiful mess of all instruments involved. Try to isolate each instrument in your head...how does it all make sense? It just does. Pretty cool. I wonder if they planned that? Anyways its pretty fun to listen to. I look forward to listening to more of Bare Claws. I also dig their Chicago Cubs style logo. These fellas will be doing their thing on Saturday 5/2 @ The Smiling Buddha for Canadian Music Week. Find out their set time and add it to your itinerary before you laminate it. -Kris “Big City” Gies
