Oliver Forest is a Montreal-based indie band founded in 2016 by Josh Cunningham, guitar and vocals, Megan Griffin, keyboards and vocals, Jon D’Ambrosio, guitar and vocals, and Tim Hammond, drums and vocals.
Blending influences from several genres, the band’s sound features infectious melodies with smooth harmonies and synth-based undertones. The result is an original mix of alternative, indie, folk and rock. Oliver Forest released its self-titled debut album in September 2017, which featured the single “Shadows.”
Josh and Megan met at college and played casual shows as a duo, performing covers and developing their distinctive vocal harmonies. Seamlessly adding Josh’s original songs to the repertoire inspired their innovative sound and attracted producer William Gaboury, who offered to record with them.
Oliver Forest was born with the addition of friends Tim Hammond on drums, Andrew Leduc on bass – now pursuing other projects – plus Jon D’Ambrosio on guitar. The band set up shop for three weeks in Tim’s home studio with William as producer and recorded their original material for a debut album. The release of Oliver Forest’s first album has led to performances in and around Montreal and Toronto at venues such as O Patro Vys, Petit Campus, Bootleggers, Maison 2109, Chateau Du Lac, Balattou and the Horseshoe Tavern. The band has also played festivals around Montreal, including the Imagine Monkland Festival, the Beaconsfield Summer Concert Series, the Hudson Music Festival and Montreal Ribfest.

Finding inspiration in Nordic Singer/Songwriters, Indie Pop, trashy 90s Radio Dance and Electronic Funk, he oscillates between honest, hand-crafted songwriting and the glittering, noise-heavy sphere of electronic music.

Besides continuous performances on festivals and stages in Germany, Prague, New York, Bucharest and Copenhagen, e.no writes music for theatre plays, animation films, web TV series and a smartphone game, but also produces and remixes other artists and projects. His debut album is due to release in February 2021.

Hailing from the United Kingdom, A charming, witty, comical, one minded dynamic duo one woman show! Sparkly Spookay is a dual natured spirit. The Sparkly side is very positive, motivational, encouraging, inspiring, the voice of a real fighter against all things of injustice, a mix of genres expressing her love for the universe through meditative poetry, she has a romantic vibe about her too and portrays that side in her songs especially on her new Single ‘Pen Pal’ .

She has come face to face with opposition in her past, the trials and tests that sought to not break her but to make her. She is a soldier and this only shows in her strong composure. The Spookay side of her is self explanatory: Mysterious, Cryptic, and thrilling. She combines her dark twisting poetry pieces into a musical Broadway theatrical phenomenon, especially with the success of her poetry anthology Blood Lines (Consisting of 8 series) becoming the production pieces for her album ‘Moonlight Shadows’.

It sounds like the paraphrase, the footnotes of masters such as Neil Young, Jackson Browne, Eagles, Elton John… essentials of the Folk-Rock movement from the 70s. And if the 70s are the roots, the 80s and 90s are the trunk and branches of his style, all crowned with a sensibility transformed into a unique and personal sound that also goes between Americana and Alternative/Indie Folk.
This album has been supported by the guru Scott Hull from the famous Masterdisk Studios in New York, who personally took charge of the Mastering and Cutting for Vinyl.

In 2015-2017, Stefani was signed with a local independent label for her first project. This collaboration resulted in a string of well received Electro POP songs like “Miss You Baby”, “Never let me go” and “Same Kiss”.

Black Cart is an unsigned 5-piece rock band whose music adds a contemporary edge to songs with their roots in one of the golden eras of rock.
Originally formed in the 1970s in the West of Scotland-from where most of the band all come-the band’s name references the river that flows through their home town. A wealth of experience in songwriting and performance is clear for any listener to appreciate. The band’s driven yet harmonic style is a theme of their material, all of which is original.
The members of Black Cart played as Ichthus and Front Page News in the 1970s and ‘80s and having gone their separate ways reformed in 2017-each bringing new experiences to the mix. Their reunion live performance at The Songwriting Academy in Farringdon, London was very well received! The band has had several radio plays on the UK’s prestigious “BBC Introducing” shows as well as being a popular contributor to dozens of local radio stations across the globe.
Having now released 10 singles, the band’s debut album, Coming Home, was released in late 2020. It is a work that could be argued to have been 40 years in the making, containing a mix of brand new songs and rearrangements of some of our very earliest material. Whether you like soaring guitars, lush keyboards, beautiful harmonies or just a great melody, there’s something for you.
Key musical influences include Queen, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, Thin Lizzy, King Crimson and Wishbone Ash.

We are based in Penistone, Sheffield in the UK.
We make ‘no rules’ music. No one genré. Sometimes dance-driven with a funky edge and sometimes, a bit darker. All three of us sing. We are influenced by everything; heavy rock, pop, rap, jazz and modern electronica, however, we try to keep it quite commercial and accessible.
Fielding Chase is the current musical moniker of William Codona and his wife Rachel. William comes from several generations of entertainers, a legacy stretching back over two centuries. The Codona family hall of fame includes acrobats, clowns, Punch and Judy performers, world famous trapeze artists and fairground show people who travelled across Europe and America to bring entertainment to the masses.
William’s musical adventure takes a similar approach as it travels around the genres. Cardiacs (the recent E.P. is dedicated to the memory of Tim Smith), De Staat, David Byrne, Rammstein, Foo Fighters, Buzzcocks, Manic Street Preachers and Twenty One Pilots are among the most prominent musical influences. Vintage horror movies and cult classics such as ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ provide cinematic ingredients thrown into the Fielding Chase melting pot.
William is a native of Glasgow and it was in that city’s fertile indie rock breeding ground in the 1990s that he cut his musical teeth as a member of The Surfin’ Gnomes and Subway, the latter of which attracted some significant interest from record labels but were fated to become another band stuck between rock n roll and a hard luck place.
Fielding Chase was the character played by William Shatner in his second murderous guest starring role in Columbo’s ‘Butterfly in Shades of Grey’ in 1994. Whether that trivia fact is relevant to the band and its music, is up to you to channel your own personal Peter Falk to investigate. Your own sense of musical adventure should compel you to investigate the output of Fielding Chase the band.

After two years, Toronto’s indie-punk trio Talk Show Host returns with a brand new song, “This Monologue, » their first single ahead of a new LP out on Wiretap Records. Equal parts catchy melody, indie vibe and pop/punk sensibility, the track is about the running commentary in your head that tells you about all the things you’ve done wrong, are currently doing wrong, and are about to do wrong. It’s the self-help anthem for those who hate self-help anthems and it’s perfectly tuned to life under an endless pandemic lockdown.

Matt grew up in the 80’s and was initially inspired by bands like Guns & Roses and Bon Jovi. Though he never quite fitted into the whole hair metal scene so decided to pave his own path. He played in bands throughout his teens, even getting scouted by a number of top-class labels and management companies. His early band Smackwater Jack was formed in the early 90’s and gained much critical acclaim before coming to a halt in the mid 2000’s. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Matt decided to pick his guitar back up. After two months of rigorous writing, he came out with thirty odd tracks, much of which went onto his first full-length album as a solo artist “Because We All Want To Escape”.

Wavewulf (Nicholas Long) grew up listening to his father’s record collection, which included bands such as Pink Floyd and The Beatles. This early exposure to music lit a spark in him! Long was first inspired to play synthesizers at age 13 when he went on a trip with a friend to see Depeche Mode in 1991, and saw them making inspiring music with synthesizers.
As a teen, Long was able to hone his skills as a synth player in local bands, composing music himself using hardware synthesizers, midi and a sequencer, which he then recorded to a Tascam 4-track. After graduating from college in 2000, Long moved to Boston in 2001, and then to NYC in 2006.
After finishing graduate school in 2017, Long founded Wavewulf when he came into a small amount of money after his mother’s tragic death (like his father, from cancer). He invested in more analogue synthesizers and some professional recording equipment. Wavewulf recorded his first album, Oscillation, in the spare room of his NJ apartment. Oscillation was released in early 2019.
Since Oscillation, Wavewulf expanded his synth collection and recorded Green Decay partly out of frustration with the current political situation around the world, especially regarding the current path leaders are on toward the destruction of the planet. Besides the environmental and political themes in his music, Wavewulf also makes music as a way to deal with his parents deaths and to explore the complicated questions of life, death, the universe, and love.
I simply am a medical student and songwriter from Memphis, TN who wanted to share his experience in the form of Spanglish music. I believe that a lot of our cultures are centered around what we hear, and the stories other artists have to tell impact us in various ways. I am not here for the money, but rather to give people a place to listen to good music that has a positive message. My target audience is everyone, but I do speak two languages in my songs. I do not do this to divide, but rather to provide a space for people to have a diverse experience and see how music can be enjoyed no matter what the language is. Gracias por leer este cuadrito sobre quien soy. Espero que disfruten mi musica.
I’ve been playing and composing music since the early 70s. I created a channel and have over 30 original song drafts published there under my name Collin Stanton® under which I also published an eBook. I am an artist, doing my best to serve our truth as a family of life, reliant upon each other. I’m self-taught and may have at least a dozen songs good enough to share with some pride.

UK-based musician Claire Bradshaw started her music career as a small 7-year-old with a large cello. She played in several youth orchestras until she swapped her cello for a guitar at the age of 15, and started her first band. She went on to play synths, guitar and bass for various bands in Nottingham UK, and Toronto, Canada. After a long hiatus she has returned to producing her own music, releasing three singles and a four-track EP, « Cairo » in 2020.
For his new EP, « More », unveiled on October 15, 2020, Michael Jacob surrounded himself with a string quartet and Cuban musicians with the ambition to make those who will listen to him travel in so many musical universes that many songs, with the particularity of proposing for a title two versions with different melodies, with variations on theme around « I Live For You », its most complete composition to date, of « I Wonder (Where You Are) « illustrated with a music video with guest actress Athena Zelkovich, and the very personal » The Lonely One « , a track in which he talks about his fight against stuttering and how music helped him to make this handicap a force …
The roots of Silverbird are widespread and lie somewhere between singer-songwriter, rock, folk, pop and heavy metal. From this diversity the band has created a unique style with a high recognition value.
Catchy melodies, expressive power and songs with heart and soul are signature features of the band.
The lyrics are about dreams, big emotions, about dayly struggle and longings and tell stories from the journey through life.
Initially the EP « Fly Into The Light“ and then the Single « Too Late » were pure studio projects.
At this moment Silverbird was a solo project of the singer and songwriter Otto Steiner.
The recordings were made in collaboration with studio- and guest musicians and were presented by different radio stations.
After that he took to the road and was looking for spirit brothers he could continue this project with and present the songs live with a new livery.
Unexpectedly he found old friends on the way and so finally the band was complete in its current band lineup:
Otto Steiner – Lead vocals, e- and a-guitars, mandolin
Roland Römer – Bass, percussion, backing vocals
Lothar Jackel – Drums, percussion, backing vocals
Sean (Twilight Music Sculpture) wants to share his love for music with the world. This high energy guy wears his emotions on his sleeve and this shines through in his work.
Said to have 9 lives, this guy doesn’t stop. High on life and works with passion, he’s always in the moment.
“I’m an eternal optimist, living life to the fullest with no regrets!”
Scottish musician Malcolm MacWatt has already gained recognition for his powerful song-writing. As a solo performer, swapping out his telecaster for an acoustic guitar, his story-telling comes to the fore, often with brutal clarity, writing about love, loss, guilt and loneliness with recurring themes of home, connection and family. By paring songs down to the absolute minimum he allows the lyrics and melodies to take priority.
Age 12 and getting into the guitar, Malcolm first heard Johnny Cash at San Quentin and was immediately hooked into country music, especially the more traditional, folk elements with roots stretching back across the Atlantic to Britain and Europe. As his interest in the guitar developed over the years he has been influenced by players from across the music spectrum including Jimmy Page, Jimmy Vaughan, Brian Robertson, Robert Smith, Django Reindhardt , Tony Rice and many others. He includes Justin Currie, Martin Stephenson, Steve Earle, John Martyn and Gillian Welch as songwriters who have shaped his writing in some form.
“Country is heart, guts and soul music, born out of difficult times, and I try to keep that in my writing whether it’s a country song or otherwise,” he says. “In one way or another I’ve lived my songs. They’re very personal and honest but at every gig people always tell me how they relate to them… I love when that happens.”
I’ve packed a lot of experiences into my life, working as a newspaper journalist, a roustabout in the North Sea offshore oil industry and most recently in inner-London schools. My first band The Firewatchers toured extensively through Scotland during the eighties. I moved to London in 2010 to study guitarmaking with some of the UK’s best luthiers and in late 2016 started The Glass Mountains where I played guitars, dobro and fiddle. In November 2018 I released my first solo album Anywhere But Here, followed by Three Truths and The Chord in June 2019. My third album, a full band 70s rock production entitled « Dial It Back » was released in January 2020, followed four months later by the country-influenced « Hearts and Horizons » EP. On July 4th the same year I put out a Celtic folk/Americana EP called SKAIL. All have received glowing reviews and global radio play.
Lee Midgley is a English composer. For him, the piano and guitar are the best way to explore and express his musical talents. Music must be able to express sensations linked to his own autobiographical experience. His approach to music is very melodic, refined and sensitive, I play and compose for myself: with any instrument I feel free, calm, relaxed & creative. I experience music with a great feeling of well-being. Emotions and positive feelings that I translate in my music and that I want to convey to those who listen. Most of his music comes from dreams, where they come from who knows? he says it’s hard to turn off & most songs are actually full scores in his head when he awakes.
The John Michie Collective is a multi-instrumentalist and multimedia artist from the North of England. John’s art tries to explore personality, truth, beauty, inspiration and euphoria in the form of guitar-based psychedelia.
In John’s song writing, he is predominantly siphoning psych stalwarts including Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The Velvet Underground, with a touch of Lalo Schifrin and 1970s Fleetwood Mac.
The John Michie Collective’s debut LP High Vibrations will be released on the 12 February 2021. It is a multi-layered and firmly controlled freak-out.
No man is one thing. We’re sons, brothers, partners, workers, nerds and rock stars. All at once, not in part, but fully. And that’s what you get with The Amber Bugs. A whole bunch of stuff crammed together, busting at the seams. Unapologetically hard to pin down but all the more real for it. Songs are energetic, noisy, rough around the edges and relentless in direction changes. They pull on Punk, Jazz, Ska and Lindy Hop influences to name just a few. At a strange time when covid has removed variety from our lives The Amber Bugs are here to give it back. All of it. Enjoy.

We are a duo living 150 miles apart. Just humans and circuits. We are deliberately 1979 electronic post-punk, inspirationally 1980s synth pop, accidentally 1980s darkwave and notionally 1990s electronica. We write cynical love songs; challenges to power; saongs about revolution; songs of cultural unity; songs about digital wisdom; songs about claustrophobia and songs about dead musicians walking the streets as friends electric. We play our generation’s blues. We look back but are anti-nostalgia. We like juggernaut beats that are unstoppable. We like synths that colour the sky neon. Our favourite colour is vertical. We are 2020.
Luxembourg-based electronic music producer Tobisonics released his first solo production, alt-electro-pop groove, “All These Things” in March 2020. The follow-up, “Military Industrial Complex” was a politically-charged dose of driving electronics. January 2021, he due to release « Eye or the Storm ».
Wild Horse are a young, exciting English indie band whose albums & tracks have drawn favourable comparisons with some of the UK’s very best exports from critics both sides of the pond, but more than that it is establishing WILD HORSE as its own brand of Indie. At the end of 2019 their tracks were repeatedly played on BBC Introducing & in February 2020 they were invited to perform a live set, they have been a regular feature ever since.
Wild Horse are prodigious in every way, as Jack Baldwin (18), Older brother Henry (21) and buddy Ed Barnes (19) have just released their fourth album, “WE ARE IN AN IDENTITY CRISIS… BUT WE LOVE IT”. A monster release of 16 of the catchiest songs you are likely to hear this year. Expect the unexpected, from Pop, Classic Rock, Punky Reggae, Blue eyed Soul, Dirty Funk, Rap, Latin, and so much more. Yet it flows perfectly! Beautifully produced and highly recommended by critics on both sides of the pond.
The East Sussex boys are renowned for an exciting, powerful stage show, having honed their craft from an early age at all the iconic venues in London & the South East as well as several festivals, often playing the same stages as many of their heroes once did.
The reviews or their songs have been brilliant and extensively played on many radio stations worldwide. Their tracks & albums are available on all major platforms.
With many original tracks released and yet more still being written, there is no stopping their creativity & drive. Their live performance is an experience like no other with overwhelming presence and promiscuous energy which keeps audiences in the palm of their hands. Impressive considering their average age is only 19…
Autodidacte et ambitieux, Maxime à appris seul à chanter, jouer de la guitare, synthé et MAO. l’artiste à soif d’apprendre et ne cesse de vouloir se perfectionner ainsi que de créer des projets en collaboration avec d’autres artistes et créatifs de tout horizon.
Pas de nom de scène, Maxime à décidé de rester dans l’authenticité en associant son travail avec un personnage fidèle à son identité : Maxime Raux. Ce dernier compose en français pour rendre sa musique vraie et accessible.
With a rise to prominence nearly as fast and relentless as their music, Canada’s finest Obey The Brave formed in 2012 and almost immediately found a worldwide fan base. Based out of Ottawa and Montreal, the band features Alex Erian (Despised Icon) on vocals as well as guitarist Terrence McAuley and drummer Stevie Morotti. By the middle of 2012, just over half-a-year becoming a band, the metalcore act found itself signed to iconic label Epitaph Records with the band’s debut album Young Blood in August of that same year. A sophomore album, Salvation, followed in 2014. After a tempestuous adventure with their last record Mad Season (2017), OTB managed to navigate out of troubled waters with a new set of songs that perfectly echoes the album title’s meaning. The musical experimentations from the previous record enabled the band this time to strengthen its style into a perfect blend that gracefully masters new melodic approaches while remaining deeply loyal to its hardcore and metal roots. Having recently partnered up with Hell For Breakfast, Montreal-based music label Slam Disques’ new division, the band is ready to start a new chapter in its history, starting on July 19th 2019 with the release of its new record Balance. This time around, OTB decided to team up with producer Paul Marc Rousseau (Silverstein), while keeping Dean Hadjichristou (Parkway Drive, Protest The Hero) on board for engineering. With the help of Sam Guaiana (Like Pacific) and Mike Kalajian (Emmure) respectively on mixing and mastering, the band sounds more energetic and vigorous than ever.
Avec une montée en puissance presque aussi rapide et implacable que leur musique, Obey The Brave s’est formé en 2012 et a presque immédiatement trouvé une base mondiale de fans. Basé à Ottawa et à Montréal, le groupe présente Alex Erian (Despised Icon) au chant ainsi que le guitariste Terrence McAuley et le batteur Stevie Morotti. Vers le milieu de 2012, le groupe de metalcore s’est retrouvé signé avec le label emblématique Epitaph Records et sortent leur premier album Young Blood en août de la même année. Un deuxième album, Salvation, a suivi en 2014. Après une aventure tumultueuse avec leur dernier album Mad Season (2017), OTB a réussi à sortir des eaux troubles avec un nouvel ensemble de chansons qui fait parfaitement écho au sens du titre de l’album. Les expérimentations musicales créées grâce aux précédents albums ont permis cette fois au groupe de renforcer son style en un mélange parfait, qui maîtrise gracieusement les nouvelles approches mélodiques tout en restant profondément fidèle à ses racines hardcore et métal. Ayant récemment conclu un partenariat avec Hell For Breakfast, la nouvelle division du label montréalais Slam Disques, le groupe est prêt à entamer un nouveau chapitre de son histoire, en commençant par le 19 juillet 2019 avec la sortie de son nouvel album, Balance. Cette fois-ci, OTB a décidé de faire équipe avec le producteur Paul Marc Rousseau (Silverstein), tout en gardant Dean Hadjichristou (Parkway Drive, Protest The Hero) à bord pour l’ingénierie. Avec l’aide de Sam Guaiana (Like Pacific) et Mike Kalajian (Emmure) respectivement sur le mixage et le mastering, le groupe sonne plus énergique et vigoureux que jamais.
Formé en 2016 dans un triangle géographique délimité par la Cité 2000, les Studios de Rouen et le Longueuil Pizza, Thick Glasses est né au milieu de séances de déjeuners remplies de discussions interminables sur Star Wars: l’Attaque des Clones & de jams au local de pratique bourrés de Girl Scout Cookies, de Doritos BBQ éclaté, de PBR pis d’amplis avec le volume crinqué à 11. Combinant instinctivement la catchiness et la rapidité des Descendents et des Vulgaires Machins à la groove et la lourdeur de Cancer Bats et de Red Fang, le groupe propose une mixture déroutante que le groupe étiquette lui-même comme du slu$h punk, sa version montréalaise et revampée de la musique sludge. Trop heavy pour les bands de rock, trop soft pour les bands heavy, Thick Glasses se torche de l’avis des puristes et se fraye un chemin dans l’underground montréalais avec l’ultime ambition de repousser artistiquement les limites du possible tout en y insufflant constamment l’essence de sa propre identité. En 2020, le trio sort un second EP en plus de joindre ses forces au label Montréalais, Hell For Breakfast.
Thick Glasses was born out of the geographical triangle anchored by Cité 2000, Studios de Rouen, and Longueuil Pizza and solidified amidst never-ending Star Wars: Attack of the Clones conversations over brunch and jams loaded with girl scout cookies, bold BBQ Doritos, PBRs and amps cranked to volume 11.
Combining instinctively the catchiness and speed of Descendents and Vulgaire Machins, with the groove and heaviness of Cancer Bats and Red Fang, the six songs make a for a perplexing mix that the band self-describes as “slu$h” punk; the revamped, Montréal-version of the more common “sludge” genre. Too hard to call it a rock band, too soft to call it heavy metal, they don’t care about other people’s opinions and keep bulldozing their way through the underground Montréal scene. The band always gives itself the mission to push artistic boundaries whilst maintaining the essence that makes the true Thick Glasses sound. In July 2020, they announced their association to the Montreal-based record label, Hell for Breakfast for their upcoming projects.
After over 15 years of rockin’ out in various bands, Sébastien Filiatrault and Bruno Longpré, AKA Rat & Burger for the intimates, totally left out one day, gathered around a messy table with a gazillion Pabst Blue Ribbon, 2 guitars and the will to take over the world.
Since the release of their first EP Turbo Power Excellent in 2012, pretty much all the underground punk rock scene from the Province of Québec started to have its eyes set on this new phenomenon hailing from Santa-Teresa that was The Matchup.
Following up the next year with Alternative To Metal, the band delivered some of its most memorable anthems, including Welcome Tomorrow, Follow Me Home, The Game and Low. Quickly, the band gathered a stronger following to its concerts with almost only the power of their music.
Right after the release of the third EP Cool Your Djent (2015), Rat went on a hiatus due to personal issues. Meanwhile, Burger kept the band going with the help of Pat Savate as well as Gilbert Vallerand.
However, in 2019, Rat surprised all Matchup fans by announcing his return in the band with Burger, just like in the good old days. From now on, the guys are more driven than ever to write a whole new chapter in the Matchup’s history. In 2020 they release their anthology and their new album ‘Straight to the Core’.
Nouvellement arrivés chez Hell For Breakfast, Super Punk rassemble les membres de Guerilla Poubelle (ex), Fortune Cookie Club et Kamakazi pour éduquer les masses avec « Kim Jong Goes to Cégep ».
Digne du stock « old school » de Blink-182 ou de Sum 41, les mélodies de Super Punk sont courtes, accrocheuses, percutantes et, surtout, nostalgiques. « Kim Jong Goes to Cégep » pourrait parfaitement correspondre à la bande-sonore d’un film style American Pie meets Lords of Dogtown, et chacune des chansons y trouverait sa place!
Attention, nous ne sommes pas responsables si après avoir écouté l’album, vous avez une soudaine envie de remonter sur votre skate, vous rendre à la pizzeria du coin et faire des moshpits entre chums!
Fresh off the diner table from Hell for Breakfast comes the debut album from Super Punk. This super band brings together members of Guerilla Poubelle (ex), Fortune Cookie Club, and Kamakazi to educate the masses with “Kim Jong Goes to Cégep.”
You could take this whole album and write a coming-of-age skate punk movie à la American Pie meets Lords of Dogtown (and the associated documentary), and every song would hit the mark. With just the right ratio of campy elements, sound effects, and funny ad libs to racing riffs and smashing drums, Super Punk delivers exactly what your inner pop punk teen was searching for in a sea of perfectly mastered pop princesses. They masterfully blended the in-your-face, loud, repetition of bands like The Ramones and The Clash with the melody and vocals from the early 2000s (when we all unanimously were “going through it”, and Sum 41, Good Charlotte and Blink-182 were the only ones putting our thoughts into songs).
The incredible thing about punk music is that no matter what language you speak, you can feel and be moved by the music. Super Punk’s album sets this 22-song course on the table over 30 minutes and it is so good that even the most anglophone can scream the lyrics.
For punks, the beauty really is in the chaos and the simplicity of being loud, aggressive, and a little (a lot) crazy – and in 2020, what could we need more than an album that brings us just that.
Although relatively new, the band has already shared the stage with notable acts such as Emmure, Counterparts, For The Fallen Dreams, Obey The Brave, Like Moths to Flames with over 35 shows played and counting – they’ve also had the opportunity to fire up the stage at DesBouleaux Fest, Envol & Macadam, Music4Cancer, Montebello Rockfest and Festival d’été de Québec. In 2019, they released a second effort in the form of a 4-track EP called “All We Have Is Now”, that redefined their aggressive and catchy sound and solidified their place in the scene. The EP notably has features with Brendan Murphy from Counterparts on the track “Contender” and Alex Erian from Obey The Brave and Despised Icon on “All We Have Is Now”, showing their versatility and the support they already have from giants in the metalcore scene. 2020 has been a big year for the band, following up the success of their previous Eps with their single “Entertainment” featuring Jayden Panesso from Sylar, garnering over 28K streams on YouTube for the accompanying music video that the guys filmed with their phones while in quarantine! To finish off the year, they’ve teamed up with the Montreal-based record label Hell for Breakfast for their upcoming projects
C’est sous le pseudonyme de Salmine que Benjamin Piette présente aujourd’hui En cher et en noces, son tout premier album à saveur pop et hip-hop. Déjà bien reconnu de son public pour ses textes denses et aboutis, cette nouvelle mouture lui permet de se concentrer encore plus sur l’écriture tout en ayant la possibilité d’explorer une toute nouvelle forme d’expression musicale. Avec la collaboration de DJ Horg et Frank Joly à la production, il en résulte un assortiment de morceaux dont l’ambiance se rapproche de la pop/rap des méga-stars françaises comme Orelsan et Lomepal tout en combinant une poésie empreinte de messages socio-politiques, rappelant davantage les efforts du vétéran Manu Militari.
Actif dans le milieu de la musique québécoise depuis plus de 10 ans, Benjamin Piette ne cesse d’enchaîner les projets. Touche-à-tout, l’auteur-compositeur-interprète s’est fait connaître plus particulièrement au sein des scènes folk-rock et punk francophone par l’intermédiaire de ses nombreux projets, soit Noé Talbot, Fortune Cookie Club, Col Rouge, Super Punk et Old School Politics.
En parallèle à ces nombreuses années passées à arpenter les routes lors de ses nombreuses tournées et de périples outre-Atlantique où il a accumulé près de 800 concerts, l’artiste a également entretenu une carrière de professeur de français au secondaire. Passionné de littérature en tous genres; de poésie, de slam, divers arts qu’il enseigne par le biais de nombreux ateliers dans des écoles de la Belle Province.
Singer-songwriter Benjamin Piette is now referred as Salmine in order to present ‘’En chair et en noces’’, his very first album with a pop and hip-hop flavor. Already well recognized by his audience for his dense and accomplished texts, this new project allows him to focus even more on writing while having the opportunity to explore a whole new form of musical expression. With the collaboration of DJ Horg and Frank Joly in production, the result is an assortment of tracks in the vein of the pop / rap of French mega-stars like Orelsan and Lomepal, while combining a poetry full of social messages that is more reminiscent of veteran Manu Militari’s efforts.
Active in the Quebec music scene for more than 10 years, Benjamin Piette continues constantly to explore new musical horizons. Curious and versatile, the singer-songwriter has become known particularly among the francophone folk-rock and punk scenes through various projects, especially Noé Talbot, Fortune Cookie Club, Col Rouge, Super Punk and Old School Politics.
In parallel to all these years spent on the roads during his many tours and trips between Quebec and Europe where he accumulated nearly 800 concerts under his belt, the artist has also maintained a career as a teacher French teacher in high school. Passionate about literature of all kinds; poetry, slam, various arts that he teaches through many workshops in schools of the Belle Province of Quebec.
POGO CAR CRASH CONTROL, c’est une grosse dose d’énergie brute gerbée sur un micro. Les 4 musiciens, originaires de Seine-et-Marne (FR) et âgés d’une vingtaine d’années, imposent des textes en français, acérés et sans concession, traitant de l’égoïsme et plus largement de tout ce qui nous dérange. L’énergie sur scène est elle aussi époustouflante, avec des riffs indomptables et des larsens sauvages fracassés en plein visage. Au bord de l’agonie à chaque fin de concert, « P3C » nous balance un rock garage enragé et convulsif dans la veine de Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, Refused et Mudhoney.
POGO CAR CRASH CONTROL is a gigantic wave of brute energy spewed on a microphone. Hailing from Seine-et-Marne in France, the four musicians have the strong ambition to rise internationally while imposing abrasive and uncompromising French lyrics that speak about egocentrism and everything that can be bothering in our everyday lives. On stage, the band delivers storm bending performances filled with nasty guitar riffs and astonishing feedback. At the edge of agony at the end of each concert, ‘’P3C’’ is redefining garage rock and hardcore punk in the vein of Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine, Refused and Mudhoney.
L’Affaire Pélican, c’est quatre gars de la Rive-Nord de Montréal qui ont décidé de se réunir pour jouer la musique qu’ils aiment écouter. Un punk rock rapide, parfois mélodique et qui respecte la Loi 101.
On se rend compte assez rapidement que tous ont grandi avec les Millencolin, Bigwig, Belvedere et compagnie des années 90, car c’est ce même genre d’énergie qui se dégage de leurs compositions. Sans être restés pris dans une époque, les influences, anciennes et actuelles, se mêlent pour donner une couleur propre à L’Affaire Pélican. Un premier EP « Le Moins Pire » en février 2017 et un vidéoclip pour la pièce «Sans Gloire» en avril de la même année ont été lancés.
Depuis, le groupe a fait le tour de plusieurs festivals (Beau’s Oktoberfest, Pouzza Fest, etc.) et se donne en spectacle chaque fois que le temps leur permet. Les ingrédients sont toujours les mêmes lors des shows: énergie, humour, plaisir et barbe.
L’Affaire Pélican, it’s four boys from the North Shore of Montreal who decided to get together to play the music they like to listen. A fast punk rock with some melody and all in French to accommodate the Law 101.
We can easily see that they grew up with Millencolin, Bigwig, Belvedere, etc, all from the 90’s. They use the same type of energy in their composition than them. Without getting stuck in a specific era, the band mixes old and recent influences and always put their personal touch. They released their first EP « Le Moins Pire » in February of 2017 and an official video for the song « Sans Gloire » in the same year.
Since then, the band has performed in a lot of different festivals (Beau’s Oktoberfest, Pouzza Fest, etc.) and have played shows whenever they’ve had the time to do it. They always have the same ingredients during events: energy, humor, fun and beard.
Hate It Too est né en 2008, au bord du fleuve Saint-Laurent à Trois-Pistoles, Québec. Le groupe, qui n’était au départ qu’un hobby pour ces jeunes du secondaire, s’est avéré être un projet plus sérieux au début de 2010.
À l’été 2012, le groupe s’est installé à Québec et a enregistré sa première sortie: «It’s About Time», qui est sortie en novembre plus tard cette année-là. L’EP était composé des meilleurs morceaux du quatuor depuis sa création.
À l’aube de 2013, le groupe nouvellement emménagé à Québec a commencé à travailler sur son premier album complet. Il aura fallu près de deux ans – et un changement de bassiste – pour que le groupe commence à enregistrer son premier gros projet, Purple Mountains. Ce premier album est sorti le 18 août 2015.
Hate It Too a fait la promotion de l’album à travers la province et a commencé à travailler sur de nouvelles opportunités pour sa musique. Purple Mountains, ainsi que l’EP, ont vendu de nombreux exemplaires dans différents endroits en Europe, en Asie, en Amérique du Sud et bien sûr en Amérique du Nord. Les gars ont partagé la scène avec des artistes internationaux tels que Gob, Bigwig, Seaway, A Wilhelm Scream, Swingin’ Utters, Bigwig, Seaway, Pears, The Brains, Mute, Dance Laury Dance, Sandveiss, Cobra Skulls, et la liste continue. C’est en 2020 que la formation a décidé de joindre ses forces au label Montréalais Hell For Breakfast. Un nouvel album est sorti en mai 2020 et ce n’est que le début d’une grande aventure!
Hate It Too started out in 2008, by the banks of the St-Lawrence River in Trois-Pistoles, Québec. The band, which at first was only a hobby for a couple of high school kids, turned out to be a more serious project as 2010 began.
In the summer of 2012, the band moved to Quebec City and recorded their first release: “It’s About Time”, which came out in November later that year. The EP consisted of the quartet’s best tracks since its inception.
At the dawn of 2013, the Quebec City outfit started working on its first full length record. It took nearly two years – and a bass player change – for the band to start recording its first effort, Purple Mountains. The debut album came out on August 18th, 2015.
Hate It Too promoted the album across the province of Quebec and at the same time looked for future opportunities for their music. Purple Mountains, as well as the EP, has sold many copies in different places in Europe, Asia, South America and of course North America. They shared the stage with international acts such as Gob, Bigwig, Seaway, A Wilhelm Scream, Swingin’ Utters, Bigwig, Seaway, Pears, The Brains, Mute, Dance Laury Dance, Sandveiss, Cobra Skulls, and the list goes on. It’s in 2020 that the band decided to join the Montreal label Hell For Breakfast. Hate It Too dropped a new album in May 2020 and this is just the start of a great adventure!

De plus, leur vidéoclip pour la chanson Religion Vs. Gin a trôné au sommet du Top 5 francophone de Musique Plus pendant onze semaines cette même année. Ils ont déjà plus de 300 concerts à leur actif, dont 4 tournées en Europe et au Québec avec plusieurs groupes renommés de la scène punk-rock comme Guerilla Poubelle, Antintellectual, johk, Maladroit, PL Mafia, Useless ID, etc. Mélodique et percutant, autant politique que poétique, militant, mais pas sectaire, le groupe québécois rassemble toutes les qualités d’un groupe punk moderne prônant l’éthique tant prisée du DIY. Après avoir travaillé avec une dizaine de labels et d’associations à travers les années, le groupe s’associe cette fois-ci avec la jeune étiquette Hell For Breakfast pour offrir une première galette en version vinyle! ‘Les chansons de la gloire’ rassemble les plus grands moments de la discographie du groupe jusqu’à présent et culmine avec la présence de Perdu dans les possibles, un single aussi inédit qu’inégalable!

Great music can transport us, it can surround us and take us on a journey. Paolo Virdis makes music that takes you somewhere else completely. Are you ready to be whisked away?
Based in Turin, Italy, Paolo Virdis is an artist and producer with the power to teleport the listener in to strange, often dystopian lands, swimming in dark atmospheres and brooding intent. Inspired by the work on artists such as Nine Inch Nails, Drexciya and Kraftwerk, amongst others, there are echoes of Detroit Techno and even post/punk and new wave.
Single, ‘Rimango Qui’ (I Stay Here) is a slice of thumping techno, swirling with darkness, pulsing synth bass and a haunting vocal. It is pure atmosphere, like pacing the corridors of a club at 3am. ‘Abisso’ (Abyss) does exactly what it says on the tin, transporting listers to an intense abyss full of synth driven attitude and mystery. ‘Survive’ is pure suspense – synths loops march toward ghostly vocals, a heart-racing tempo drawing the listener deep inside the song. Paolo Virdis creates worlds for you to inhabit as you listen. These worlds are supplemented by a strong visual aesthetic; Virdis produces imagery that perfectly visualises the dark worlds he creates through his music. Videos, photographs and digital collages give the listener yet more to delve in to, to get lost inside. With new single ‘Electro Butterfly’ due to drop in November, Paolo Virdis is a producer on a steep upward trajectory.

My brother and I have been metal-heads since we were teens, but in recent years we fell in love with the synthwave community and culture. We wanted to start creating music that bridged the two genera’s together, but also incorporated a plethora of influences from goth rock, psychedelic music, and more. We plan on releasing more singles this year and complete our first LP in 2021.
Sacred Tongue is our first fully released single. We are trying to build a futuristic (yet retro) atmosphere to our mix, while also incorporating many elements from other genera’s to the synthetic heart of our song. We hope to bring a refreshing new (yet nostalgic) soundscape to our listeners. The song itself is about many things, but we would rather keep the verbiage and lyrical context to ourselves so that the song can be open to the listeners interpretations.

Bio: ‘No Serial Killer’ is the brainchild of Mr. A.K.M. from Nottingham, England. He plays piano like a bass guitar, hence the term ‘bass piano.’ There is no bass guitar on the album. We cannot think of any artist who uses the piano as a bass guitar. All 33 songs were written by A.K.M. and all singers are North American. The entire album was done online i.e. not in person. Influences include: Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Rock and Roll of all eras and any music which creates an atmosphere. ‘No Serial Killer’ is also influenced by movies, TV, video games and life in general. What’s special about this triple-album? There are 33 songs and there are no filler tracks. Every single song is above-average. Every track on our Bandcamp page lists the people involved in the song. The entire album can be heard in full here: https://noserialkiller.bandcamp.com/releases Why the name No Serial Killer? Is life getting you down? Are you struggling to appear normal when in public? Are you sick of pretending to be well-adjusted at all times? Well, take heed. All of these frustrations may some day cause you to flip. Think for a minute – when people start to kill, does this happen overnight? Or does the harsh reality of life cause a person to slowly fall apart? A.K.M.’s ‘No Serial Killer’ is a music concept designed to eliminate murder in society. If a person feels they’re going crazy, before they reach ‘the breaking point’ they must recognize that to kill others is evil, nasty and to put it mildly, highly inconsiderate. It’s not a crime to be insane, so embrace the insanity before it consumes you. We need to establish a world where no killing takes place, especially ‘no serial killing’. Think of how many lives we can save. So ask yourself, are you with us? The choice is yours. No Serial Killer.

Hi guys, I’m a guitarist, composer, singer, producer. My idea of music is oriented to the future, no cover band, no tribute band and things like that…who care? I starded to play guitar many years ago, listening great musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Pat Metheny, John Scoffield, Vernon Reid….and people like that. People say that my guitar style is impetuous and eclectic too, but I just don’t know, ah ah!! I’m always searching new sounds, new vibes, new languages. I dislike codifications and paradigms, and people with that mentality (musically and not). I’m never satisfied. To me music is like the life: unpredictable. I began my musical career in Bari between bands, concerts, festivals and record productions in the early 90’s. Over the years I have played in prestigious Italian festivals such as Time Zones, Taranta Power, Bari Jazz Festival, Summer Festivals, etc … in artistic programs that included artists such as Lou Reed, John Cale, Popol Whu, Uri Caine, Vernon Reid, Eugenio Bennato, Antonella Ruggiero, etc. (I can’t remember them all). Just as there were numerous radio passages on local and national FM radios (Radio Rai) and web radios, reviews in local and national newspapers and magazines (Musica di Repubblica, for example), and also on TV. My discography is quite varied in terms of styles and « genres » of music faced over the years, from English / Italian pop / rock, funk episodes, electronic / house sounds, instrumental rock, etc. .always looking for a musical language that could somehow unify everything I listened to, played, appreciated and what excited me. If I had to define my musical genre I keep saying that it is a « crossover », or contamination, a fusion between apparently distant cultures but that if they come together they can give life to something « new » (basically all life is research).
