Sportsfan - "Jean Jacket Rock" hittin' Horseshoe 01.12

Sportsfan call themselves “jean jacket rock” which means I have to listen to ‘em immediately. Their latest release was a 3 song EP titled “Holy Hell”. These tracks are solid rock n roll tunes reminiscent of American heartland rock such as Tom Petty or Mellancamp but with a more current indie-pop attitude. A good mix of jangle and fuzz. They will be supporting Fade Awaays at their EP Release Party on January 12th at the Horseshoe Tavern along with Maybelleen and Lovers Touch. – Kris Gies

Bryan Coffey & the Feel Good Band - Elvis Costello Cover Tune, Plays Bovine 01.10

Bryan Coffey has been workin’ the scene for a while now playing with bands Wine Lips and Jean Daddy among others. Lately he has been working on his own projects with his band “The Feel Good Band”. His most recent release is a cover of Elvis Costello’s Pump It Up. Coffey and his band simplify the track and slow it down just enough for the lyrics to be much clearer than the original. I prefer this pace and the chorus has a Green Jelly-like intensity to it. Very cool. Bryan Coffey & The Feel Good Band play Bovine Sex Club on January 10th along with Serb Superb and Dark Trip. – Kris Gies

Phantom Atlantic - New Alt Rock Single "Beneath Your Moment"

Phantom Atlantic is a 4 piece alternative rock band from Toronto. Their latest track “Beneath Your Moment” has a slower pace which leaves plenty of room for the “haunting guitars, swirling synths and hypnotic rhythms.” The song was produced by Juno Award Winner Dan Brodbeck and has excellent sonic quality. Their previous single “Lessons” had more of an upbeat, energetic feel to it so this track shows a unique versatility in both their writing and playing. Connect with Phantom Atlantic and be prepared for more music on the way in 2019. – Kris Gies

Blue Sky Miners - "Rocky Mountain Desert Rock" at Lee's Palace 01.18

Blue Sky Miners are a six piece band from Toronto that I would drop into the Americana category. Despite their location they find influences in the Rocky Mountains and the desert to combine for a folk sound that is more bad ass than the standard. The band member’s origins stretch across the whole country which brings many different regions together for their uniquely Canadian sound. They are headlining an Exclaim Class of 2019 show at Lee’s Palace on January 18th alongside Olivia & The Creepy Crawlies, Dan Edmonds and Katie Mcbride. – Kris Gies

Kojo Easy Damptey - New Soul Album/Single "Giants"

Originally from Ghana; Kojo Easy Damptey combines soul, funk, hip hop and I hear some jazz influences in his latest track “Giants”. This is the title track from his upcoming album which to him “builds on the tradition of resistance and resilience that people of color around the world have shown in the fight to combat the ill effects of colonization.” “Giants” is available now on bandcamp! – Kris Gies
