Within - "Young" EP and Music Video

Within is an alt/indie folk trio out of Toronto. Or “freak folk” as they say. They play dark, stripped down folk tunes. Definitely leaving plenty of space on the canvas which is a pleasant change to what we are probably used to hearing on a regular basis. The vocalist is rather enchanting with a trippiness to her voice that reminds me of Grace Slick or Dolores O’Riordan. They recently released an EP “Young” and below is the title track first single. – Kris Gies

Wasting Time - Brand New Pop Punk "Tales from the Morgue", Sneaky Dee's 07.06

Wasting Time are a pop-punk band from Toronto specializing in mean-spirited jokes and acting like twelve year olds. Twelve was a fun age. They released a new record in May called “Tales from the Morgue”. Track 2 is titled “Hang Out At The Beach (Slapfish Tacos)” and I knew I would like that tune immediately. Hanging by the beach and driving an El Camino is all I ever really want to do so they these fellas basically nailed it. They play Sneaky Dee’s on July 6th opening for LETDOWN along with Gold Route and Closer to Zero. – Kris Gies

Have a look at The Drop Ups latest video “Sheffield Lights”. Doors at 8. 5 Bucks. – Kris Gies
