Si l’on observe bien la réaction exothermique possible entre les atomes d’un orchestre expérimental et des molécules de chants contestataire, on y retrouve la musique effervescente de Tintamare. TTMR²=ℕc. Un théorème soulignant les particularités multiples d’un groupe de musique courant du prog-rock acoustique au post-folk réfractaire, sous une formule rythmique effrénée catalysée par des corps conducteurs dansants.
Un phénomène largement observable par écoute, dont la scène est le laboratoire.

Forget everything you thought you knew about "THE FAYS." If you've never heard the band, so much the better. The new studio record, shrouded in Canadian government-style secrecy, promises to introduce an entirely new genre to the musical spectrum. What was folk-punk, was only a pretext, an easily digested jumping off point that will propel the band to the next evolutionary step (or phase). But don't feel cheated, or fooled. There was no way of knowing before entering the studio that this album would change everything.
"Their music induces pensive, mellow, and occasionally dejected emotions, largely due to Brummel's despondent vocals, which are matched by a consistently skillful accompaniment."
Lydia Lee,The Fulcrum
Dave Norris and Local Ivan
After recording and releasing "The CDR EP" in November of 2007 on his Funny Mountain label, Dave continued playing shows in and out of the city more often, ending up at venues like the Blacksheep Inn in Wakefield, La Sala Rossa in Montreal, and various Ottawa locales including The Manx, Zaphods, and the Rainbow Room. In the meantime he was writing and recording material that would end up on his next EP "Exactly OFF," released as of December 2008. The recording, mixing and producing of which was mostly done by Dave in his Lisgar street apartment.
Nine of Nine
Luckily, Bell-Murray is able to immerse herself in music once again, thanks to the fact that she has undergone brain surgery and adopted a new creative approach to music. Nine of Nines heavily relies on the use of electronic tools as well as the looping of guitar riffs.
Jesse Dangerously
My name is Rap Legend Jesse Dangerously, and over the past two-hundred and fifty years I've poured my heart and soul into climbing the ladder of this multi-billion dollar industry we know as "Canadian hip-hop."

Diamond Mind
Edmonton outfit Diamond Mind recently signed to Calgary-based label Wyatt Records ahead of releasing their debut full-length album. Before further news on the project, the band have shared the self-titled single "Diamond Mind."
The track is an incredibly catchy piece of pop rock featuring memorable melodies and active basslines, boding well for what's to come from the band's LP.

For Montreal based band Videoman, the line between song and story is often blurred. By using their backgrounds in opera, literature, and creative writing, the four-piece band strives for music that resonates on a personal level. Pasquale D’Alessio, an opera singer currently employed by Opera Montreal, employs haunting, wistful melodies reminiscent of Radiohead and The National. After performances at Pop Montreal, Canadian Music Week, and The Horseshoe Tavern, the band caught the attention of artist and producer Patrick Krief.
