New York based artist Two Feet delivered an impactful single “Go Fuck Yourself” several months ago and now his debut 4-track EP First Steps is out on Majestic Casual. His blend of guitar licks and electronic/bass driven production is a refreshing sound that compliments his voice perfectly. We highly suggest checking this project out, stream or purchase below!
As soon as I sat down in the van, Kim Churchill offered me a mint and we both slurped away watching the rain outside. Australia’s favorite one-man singer-songwriter was back in Canada to tour his latest record Silence/Win. This time, he’s found himself at a new level of confidence about what he does.
What did busking teach Kim about a career in music? Which new song was inspired by a music festival experience? What is on Kim‘s “gratitude list?” Which friend would play an April Fool’s joke on Kim? Which alcoholic beverage makes Kim drowsy? You’ll have to listen to find out all these answers and more!

1) Kim Churchill, Silence/Win (2014) “Some Days the Rain May Fall”

You may have heard the saying “Music is Memory” before, but it’s not often determined what this saying means. The reference is a rhetorical question and can be interpreted in several ways.
Daniel Benjamin Buxton puts a specific definition in my head. If you’re walking around downtown Vancouver at night, between the audible pulse of electronic beats bleating from every club in a 5 block radius, you may run into D.B. playing a song entirely against the current. He will likely be, stomping on a piece of wood with a tambourine, shredding an ancient looking guitar, and howling a blues tune with almost terrifying authenticity. Buxton plays old world blues, a style that is so close to being only used in a historical sense, that he makes it entirely his own. His execution in performance is so precise, that any doubt of his act coming off as a novelty is quickly squelched.
Music is memory because it doesn’t remind us of how the world was in a prior point in history, instead it has the ability to remind us of how the world felt, this is because people have always expressed their feeling through music. D.B. Buxton has a rare gift of emulating the emotions from an important period of music that started Rock n’ Roll.
Don’t take my word for it. He is best experienced as a live performance. Buxton told Winnie that he has taken a break from music but has returned and is ready to get out and perform again. You can check him out at Guilt and Company in Gastown, perhaps the last venue downtown where you might see anything like him on stage. He is performing on Monday evening, April 2nd, and will return periodically.
For now check out a new tune Buxton sent Winnie titled “Blues on the Ceiling.”
