Halifax Pop Explosion Preview – Part 1

This year’s lineup could easily be considered one of the strongest in the festivals’ history. Having attracted acts like party-rap icon Danny Brown; hip-hop goliaths Ghostface Killah and Raekwon of the Wu-Tang Clan; Canadian indie-rockers Tokyo Police Club, the influential folk-punk band Against Me!, and a fantastic array of talent from Halifax, New Brunswick, PEI and beyond — it’s clear that the folks behind the scenes aren’t interested in maintaining the status quo.

Young Adults: A Conversation With Crossed Wires

Crossed Wires’ eponymous EP could easily take the cake as the best release to come out of Atlantic Canada this past summer season. This debut offering from the Wires is nothing less than infectious and impressive without even considering the fact that it’s the first release of a project that’s only straddling a mere six months of existence. Despite being their earliest effort, the EP carries an audible chemistry that could be mistaken for a band that’s already seen the process a few times over.

Checking In With London Above

The band’s name comes from a British TV series created by Neil Gaiman, called Neverwhere. The series is set in “London Below” which is a magical realm that co-exists with the real world “London Above”.

You can catch London Above on October 10th at MUN’s campus bar, The Breezeway. Or almost anywhere else in downtown St. John’s where live music is played.

The Reincarnation of Trees Speak Breeze

Trees Speak Breeze is an alternative indie-rock project hailing from Halifax, Nova Scotia. What started as a teenager’s basement solo project has recently transformed into something much greater; a full band, indie-rock anomaly. I sat down with Josh Horner, the backbone of the group to get the scoop on where the project is going.
