Fine Times - And It Happened At Midnight

Fine Times have had one hell of a busy year. The Vancouver indie rockers have played many places over 2013 including festivals in Germany, Austin, New York as well as some killer shows in Vancouver and Toronto. As their debut album seems to be winding down, the band have posted an excellent and amusing new video for the semi-official final single from it. Hope you're in the mood for some dirty dancing!

TOY have got to be my favourite British band in years! I recently saw them live in Austin twice and they completely ripped my head off. Songs taken from last years self titled debut have benefited greatly from being hammered out night after night on the road, taking their psychedelic shoegaze vibe to sonic new heights. For fans of Stereolab, My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus And Mary Chain, The Velvet Underground, CAN, Ride, and you get the idea!

Check out some TOY and go buy the album!

The Population Drops - Enough

Great post punk out of Vancouver. The Population Drops fall somewhere between Sonic Youth and Mecca Normal and then pick it up off the floor, or maybe not at all. You decide. I saw them live and it was a great set for a band that has thus far only played a handful of dates. Looking forward to more TPD in 2013.

Best Band Of 2012 - Haim!

Besides the Tanlines album, Mixed Emotions, 2012 in my eyes belonged to Haim. Forever was the song of the year and I know these ladies are gonna own 2013 as well when their full length drops.
