Review – Quick Wicked (self)

Quick Wicked are a band from Brantford ON that have high energy, focus and concentration. It’s truly independent music at its finest. Categorically this band is on its own in the stadium. If you need a slot, they are progressive/hard rock/indie-rock band that have some of the best music I’ve heard this year. Produced by Quick Wicked and Hamilton’s Matt Gauthier (who also engineered, mixed and mastered the album). Part of the album was even recorded at the Gauthier house, as well as at B Town Sound in Burlington and at The Eggplant Collective in Toronto.

CD Review – Shoot The Image – Cranes In The City

Toronto band Shoot The Image release their debut CD which was produced by Morrissey guitarist Boz Boorer. This is one sweet CD that you will want to own! This CD is absolutely brilliant. Everything about it – from the performances by all band members, the quality of the production of every song and the mixing/mastering – is by far the best I’ve heard by any band in recent years. These songs are polished and shine like gems in the murky and vast world of Independent Music.

EP Review – Ghosthouse – Fashionably Late

Ghosthouse is a Chicago IL project headed by the infamous Jimmy Con and his tasty beats. Jimmy is a singer/songwriter who makes some mighty fine beats and has dance tracks that are infectious and classy. Original beats, sampled beats mixed with original beats and old school beats make for a fine four song EP. Fashionably Late was produced by Jimmy Con with his musical partner in crime Chuck. They equally share production credits as well as writing the tracks except for a cover by The Monkees.

CD Review – Decade Of Sleep – Self-titled

Decade Of Sleep reside in the busy city of Toronto ON. Back in 2009, I interviewed lead singer Phil Laffin (lead vocals) about their first EP release, Morning Sun. At that time, I knew this band had what it takes musically to go global. And this self-titled CD of 11 new songs just reaffirms this first impression. Rounding out the band is Lance Schibler (guitars), Eric Walker (bass/backing vocals) who plays lead guitar on “Dog” and Mat Pataki (drums/percussion/backing vocals). This foursome have a lot of talent packed into the genetics of the band – they produced this CD on their own and also have engineering credits as well (Lance and Mat).
