CHAINS OF LOVE :: http://
Chains of Love has effectively bridged the gap between the nostalgic pop sounds of the ’60s with a modern and elegant twist. All hailing from Vancouver, BC this five-piece started in December 2010, referencing certain artists such as Gail Harris, Ike & Tina, The Ronnettes, and The Shangri-la’s by using their lo-fi recording styles as a blueprint for what they wanted to hear in music today. Open up your heart and let Chains be your rock and soul salvation.
DAN MANGAN :: http://
Once a mere fresh faced folk singer from Vancouver Canada, Dan Mangan is blowing up on the world’s doorstep with four JUNO nominations this year, including Best New Artist & Songwriter of the Year. The evolution of Mangan’s music is instinctively in line with its breadth and sincerity. As his art has developed, so has the story behind its constant and exponential proliferation. Mangan’s latest opus, Oh Fortune, was released on Arts & Crafts late last year and is a rich, textured, indie-folk(ish) statement that explores the genre’s boundaries with great influence from his band.
SAID THE WHALE :: http://saidthewhale.com/ 10pm
In the five years since Said The Whale formed, the band’s hook-heavy, pop-rock sound has propelled them to successes that include a nationally televised documentary, a JUNO Award victory for best new artist, and a seemingly endless series of tours around the globe. In an age of overnight internet sensations, theirs is a true grassroots success story that has allowed the group to take its place among the Canadian indie rock elite.
SLAM DUNK :: http://
Described as the “E-Street band on Crack”, Slam Dunk’s live shows command people to lose their shiiiit to a blend of shout-along choruses and twisting fuzz-guitar melodies. With the help of Vancouver producer Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, New Pornographers), Slam Dunk were able to capture the intense energy of their live performances on the recent full-length album, The Shivers.
HUMANS :: http://dashumans.com/ 12am
Humans are an electro dance party duo from Vancouver, BC. Robbie Slade and Peter Ricq got together in 2008 and instantly started creating dance floor bangers. The release of their latest EP Traps on Hybridity Music this spring solidifies the duo as an act that will not only make you sweat but you will also never forget.
MONOLITHIUM :: https://www.facebook.com/
A child of hip-hop and a student of contemporary electronic music, Monolithium’s sound is the axiom where funk, techno and grime coalesce into concise, focused dancefloor pressure. Chris Longshanks’ debut EP, Simon & G-Funk (via Error Broadcast) is packed with psychedelic crunk from another realm altogether, combining the structures of hip-hop with tough, sexy grooves & colourful synth work.
