Your Grandad Is Here To Slay!
Today is the momentous day that local heroes Your Grandad celebrate their debut Safe Sounds release.
The Double-A single 'Juice Opinion / Fake News' (SS113) is a hard-hitting two track wonder featuring the angular guitars of William O'Neill, the unfathomable drumming of Max Scheffel and the funky bass of Cameron Kirk. On top of that, there's some good old fashioned singing to top it all off.
We're sure you'll agree that the sound of this Toronto post-punk trio just gets more refined as time passes. These two tracks were recorded by Stephen Pitman and mastered by Brent O'Toole, with album art by Jaymie Flis.
Go throw em a bone by downloading the tracks via their Bandcamp. You can also pre-order a limited edition cassette of this release too... it's an investment sure to double, triple or quadruple in value as the band shoot to international stardom... not that you'll ever consider selling it... some things are priceless; drowning in memories and wrapped up with tangible feelings of a bygone age. Yes, even as a grandad yourself, we guarantee you'll be sitting in a chair clutching that cassette, tears dripping down your chit onto your walking stick.
Speaking of old times, have you seen Your Grandad's epic bank vault sessions from back in 2020? If not you should go and check those out after listening to the new stuff, because you get to see them in all of their black-and-white glory!

Sonja and Friends Mix by DJ Cutbill
DJ Cutbill has a new mix out today via the Sonja and Friends series. Bill was set the challenge to work around soundscapes, so this is a (mostly) tranquil mix combining the sounds he recorded in the Amazon rainforest with a downbeat vinyl set.
A few shoutouts to Canadian faves BADBADNOTGOOD and Paul Jacobs who appear on this mix, but don't let these names fool you as there is still very much an electronic edge overall.
Bill's Amazonas Sound Library, if you didn't already know, is a free resource for filmmakers, musicians and creatives. You can listen to the raw files and download them here.
