The Pack A.D.
The Pack A.D.
Destruction and melody, acid wit and bruising vocals—this is the Pack A.D. Singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller have made a sound so gigantic, so fierce and raw and empowering, that it’s easy to forget there are just two people behind this brilliant, carefully constructed havoc. Shredding and pounding their way through every song, the Pack A.D. swallows you whole inside their fearless Franken-blend of heavy psych-pop/garage-rock. Their lyrics are wild nests, human and complex: darkly funny disclosures about depression; indictments of digital excess; grief-stricken fire bombs; sly crusades against stupidity. The Pack A.D. is also one of Canada’s “must-see” bands. Be it a massive stadium or the slightly seedy bar where everybody’s shoes stick to the carpet, the Pack A.D. have owned every spotlight and stolen every show they’ve ever played. Becky and Maya are relentless and riveting, playing with the kind of fuck-off freedom that makes everybody in the room vicarious rock stars, even if it’s just for the night.
Basement Revolver
Basement Revolver
2018's Heavy Eyes is the debut album from Canadian dream pop trio Basement Revolver. There’s an air of weariness pervading the album, its title summing up a general exhaustion right down to the bone, as well as hinting at a heavier direction as they deftly merge fuzzed-out indie rock with poignant, yearning lyrics.

Bringing together the talents of Chrisy Hurn (vocals, guitar), Nimal Agalawatte (bass, synth) and Brandon Munro (drums), the Hamilton, Ontario-based band has been on a steady upward trajectory, capitalizing on the success of their debut single “Johnny” in 2016. The track garnered endorsements from DIY Magazine and Exclaim! as well as respected tastemakers Gold Flake Paint, who hailed it a “‘favourite song of the year” contender. They had stumbled across a sound that is capable of stripping listeners of inhibition, yet heavy hitting enough to leave a lasting impression.
Sorry Edith
Sorry Edith
The post-punk revival triad, Sorry Edith, began in a dusty old artist studio above a heavy metal jam space in East Vancouver. Pulling influences from grunge to synth pop - Aubrey, Deona, and Kaylee, fall nothing short of deftly produced minerals and stones.
