MaicaMiaGazettebyMarie-FranceCoailler

Maica Mia creates cohesion from abstraction

The cover artwork for Maica Mia’s second album, Des Era, is a thick black line split in half. The piece of art in question, called Aperture, was created by Ludmila Armata, the mother of the Montreal duo’s singer and guitarist, Maica Armata.

Fittingly, the group’s murky, deliberately paced music can at times sound equally fissured.

“I see a lot of similarities between her artwork and the way I express myself musically,” the younger Armata observed. “Her work is rather abstract, and with abstract work you’re […]

Mini-Review: Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley at the Sala Rossa

By Lawrence Joseph

Those beautifully discordant open-tuned guitar progressions were apparent right from the first chord sequence, and the characteristic Sonic Youth rhythms were also all falling into place.  But his time they were played acoustically, and by Lee Ranaldo solo.  Ranaldo introduced his second song “Angles” by mentioning that it was originally named “Angry,” the change made because he does not particularly feel angry these days.  This […]

Thursday, June 13th, 2013 Il Motore 18-20$

Kylesa

“Lots of people like to stick to one kind of music,” guitarist/vocalist Philip Copeelaborates, “and even with the underground, lots of people segregate themselves into small little categories and place lots of imaginary rules on these scenes.”

“We just like playing heavy music and we’ve always liked playing it regardless of what is popular or trendy,” guitarist/vocalist Laura Pleasants adds. “It’s […]

The Soft Moon Pic 1

The Soft Moon + Dekoder

Saturday, June 15th, 2013 SAT 13-15$

The Soft Moon

The Soft Moon was never intended for the public’s ears, but you found it, were drawn in by its danger, and insisted that others hear. Oakland’s Luis Vasquez began the project in order to better know his own self. He’d holed up in his apartment and let the tape roll, allowing gut and memory guide him. Those twin sherpas, however, led him to […]

Wyrd Fest III presents Babysitter & JLK + The Pink Noise + EXPWY + Babi Audi

Saturday, June 15th, 2013 Casa Del Popolo

Babysitter & JLK

While they may be a difficult band to google, Victoria, BC garage punks, Babysitter, have made a strong name for themselves through extensive touring and a torrent of cassettes releases on underground labels across Canada. These releases are remarkable for how the band has used them to tighten their grip on a punkish grunge-and-roll that recalls The Wipers, Archers of Loaf, […]

Friday, June 7th, 2013 La Sala Rossa 16.50-20$

Jonathan Richman

Jonathan Richman was one of rock’s most eccentric and unpredictable cult figures, a performer whose eternally childlike public persona and seeming naiveté — typified by songs like “Ice Cream Man,” “Hey There Little Insect” and “I’m a Little Aeroplane” — tended to obscure the dexterity and craft of his music, which skirted from garage rock to country to Latin stylings and […]

Spectre Folk

Spectre Folk, the 16-year-old project of Magik Markers drummer Pete Nolan.

In 1995, I got a 4-track and started to make recordings at home in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. I was doing blown-out songs with a microphone and a distortion pedal overdriven into the tape recorder– stuff with shortwave radios and ambient sounds, sticking a mic out the window, picking up morning […]
