Tiny Habits at Studio TD: A Trio Whose Unparalleled Vocalization Has Created a Folk-Pop Music Group Like No Other

Imagine meeting your three best friends in post-secondary school, sharing and exploring mutual passions during the dawn of adult life and two years later turning friendly amusement and aimless conversation into a full-blown career and lifeline. Standing on stage, hand-in-hand in front of a venue of sardined-audience members was such a journey of the ever-growing, Tiny Habits. 

Destroyer Plays an Intimate, Sold-Out Set at Bar Le Ritz

Dan Bejar’s Destoryer is one of Western Canada’s biggest names in indie rock. Recording music for over twenty five years, Destroyer’s lush instrumentation and whimsical lyricism has seen many different genre shifts over the years, spanning from indie-folk to synth-heavy art pop, as Bejar and band navigate shifting inspirations and moods. 

Alice Phoebe Lou Blossoms at La Tulipe

Alice Phoebe Lou’s solo show at Montréal’s La Tulipe was certainly not one to miss, one of the best concerts I’ve ever attended. The sweetness and soulfulness that emanate from her raw vocals and lyrics are embodied by the person she is, a winsome presence who is tooth-achingly sweet, and oozes love and emotion.

CJLO Takes Austin, TX

CJLO has been heading down to the SXSW festival since 2016 with only the pandemic preventing us from going back. In the planning stages before the festival, there was a renewed sense of energy and excitement for us to platform CJLO to a higher stage. The excitement came to a stop when the team learned that this year the festival was being sponsored by the US Army and by Collins Aerospace (a subsidiary of RTX Corporation, previously known as Raytheon). With that knowledge, there was a shift in our hearts and soon everything began to shift around us as well. 

Waxahatchee - Tigers Blood Album Review

Waxahatchee's new release Tigers Blood continues to evolve the fun folk-americana feelings of her 2020 breakthrough album Saint Cloud. The album has a great summery feel while maintaining the meaningful lyrics that Waxahatchee has become known for. 

Katie Crutchfield entered the music business in 2007 when she and her twin sister started a pop-punk band, P.S. Eliot. The two girls decided to pursue their solo careers in 2011 but still played together and toured as P.S. Eliot in 2016. After the two sisters parted ways, Katie Crutchfield started to make music under the name Waxahatchee, named after a river in her hometown. 

Ciel Noir: A Packed Night of Moody Darkness with Codeine, Duster, Pelada, Model/Actriz and Snow Strippers

Not much can convince me to go out on a Sunday night, let alone out of my immediate neighbourhood, and above that, after I spent the day moving all my belongings to a new apartment. However, this particular late March Sunday promised a truly jam-packed show of slowcore legends, exhilarating DJs, and up-and-coming rock bands. So, trying to ignore my lumbar pain, I headed out for the night to witness Ciel Noir, a one-day festival produced by Blue Skies Turn Black, featuring five acts you’ll likely never see on the same bill again.

Truck Violence Signs Off An Explosive Night At Traxide

When you plan to go see a concert you probably follow the usual formula of buying your tickets in advance online, looking up the venue the same day of the event, and pulling up early to save your spot in line. Traxide, however, is not this kind of venue. 

Arlo Parks at Théâtre Beanfield: A True Scream, Cry and Dance

“It's so cruel what your mind can do,” a deep-cut lyric sung by R&B and Soul singer Arlo Parks, has been one of many phrases from the artists’ discography that has vastly resonated with Gen Z’s complex lives. In pure honesty and comfort, Park’s music crafts hardships and catastrophe in a mosaic of connection to one’s body and mind, emphasizing a message of collectivity, originality and self-empowerment.

You Can't Put This Babe in a Corner: Vancouver's Latest All-Girl Band

Whether it was pure luck or by the grace of the Spotify algorithm, my introduction to Babe Corner settled this appetite I not only had for new music, but also helped alleviate this growing homesickness I was beginning to experience towards the local bands and music venues I used to frequent back in Montreal and Toronto. While I embraced the chance to explore the many iconic music venues throughout London (UK) and saw as many artists as I possibly could during my year abroad, I nonetheless found myself missing this integral pastime that found itself at the epicenter of my friendships  back in Canada of discovering new music, especially local bands.
