PREVIEW: Outer Spaces at the Smiling Buddha June 29th

Baltimore's Outer Spaces began as the solo project of Cara Beth Satalino, and has since evolved into a brilliant trio.  The new record is entitled 'A Shedding Snake', and it's a journey along with Outer Spaces into their brilliant indie pop mastery.  The video for 'I Saw You' was our introduction to the record, and a fitting one as it's the opening track.  It was followed by a clip for 'Born Enemy' the same day as the album's release.  'A Shedding Snake' is evocative of change, of growth, of evolving with the times. 

Before long Outer Spaces will be performing at the Smiling Buddha in Toronto.  June 29th sees their tour in support of 'A Shedding Snake' stopping in Toronto, the first appearance in the city for the band is simply too good to miss.

Preview: Electric Island - Canada Day Edition

The season opener of Electric Island was a blast.  We can think of no better way to have spent sunny Victoria day than at Hanlan's Point, and the same goes for Canada Day, July 1st.  This time the lineup is completely different from the first, yet still an impeccably curated day of music.  Tale of Us top the list, followed by Marcel Dettman and Ben Klock performing together, as well as Apollonia and Honey Dijon.  The local support comes from Dirty Dale, Jeff Button, Koki, and Butrous.  There's a reason people look forward to these events year round.  These artists, and the setting of Toronto Island will make for an unforgettable experience.  Get your tickets!

PREVIEW: All Day I Dream Of Toronto Skies

All Day I Dream brings with it a sense of magic.  Recently spotting a poster in the Fort York area advertising this event didn't quite seem real.  Lee Burridge, and Matthew Dekay created All Day I Dream back in 2011 and since then the world has been treated to one of a kind ambiance and incredible music.  The original duo are joined by another member of the All Day I Dream family, Yokoo.  Below you can listen to a Lee Burridge mix from 2011, around the time All Day I Dream was launched.  Nothing can give you a better idea of what to expect on July 17th quite like this mix, aptly titled 'All Day I Dream Of Distant Days'.
