New music from Cheatahs

I've been digging Cheatahs first album and I featured them on the site last year. They've got a new album called Mythologies coming out October 30. Check out "Seven Sisters". It's shoegaze-y goodness.

Ariel Pink frightened me. I've seen a lot of bands over the years, and in so doing, I've seen a lot of musicians who were a little bit scary. But there was something about the way Ariel Pink paced the stage before their set that made me think that this was a man who could become unhinged at any moment.

Ariel Pink performed at this year's edition of Time Festival at Fort York in Toronto on August 15. This was my first time seeing the band and from what I've heard talking to people at the show, reading comments on-line since the show, and from experiencing the show myself, including the on-stage behaviour of Mr. Pink and the piercing feedback that punctuated the show, I guess it wasn't his best performance.

New Dead Weather tune I Feel Love

The Dead Weather, a supergroup of sorts fronted by Alison Mosshart and Jack White, have a new album on the way. It's going to be called Dodge and Burn and it comes out on September 25. Check out the hard rocking tune "I Feel Love (Every Million Miles)". It sounds awesome!

The New Pornographers - Twin Cinema is 10

Twin Cinema is The New Pornographer's third album and it was the first one I heard from the band. I'd say it changed my life, but that's probably extreme. I was blown away by the exquisite power pop that came blaring out of my (blown) speakers when I heard this uber-solid album. This album was one of the greats of 2005 that rekindled the spark of love of new music for me. It made me reach back in the band's catalogue and has made me look forward to each release since.

I've been able to appreciate this band live on two occasions, first at The Bandshell at the Canadian National Exhibition and second at Riot Fest 2014. They are fantastic live, so my recommendation is to see them if you have the chance.

Twin Cinema celebrates its tenth birthday today and I'm taking the opportunity to say thanks to The New Pornographers for sharing such beautiful songcraft and musicianship with the world.

I love every last note on this album but I've chosen these as my favourite, favourite tunes from this album:

"Twin Cinemas"

"Use It"

"The Bleeding Heart Show"

"Jackie, Dressed In Cobras"

"The Jessica Numbers"

"These Are The Fables"

"Broken Beads"

"Three Or Four"

"Star Bodies"
