Big show happenin' at The Smiling Buddha on Saturday Night featuring The Barrel Heads. They'll be rollin' in from Montreal...probably in a wagon. They're a 4 piece garage rock band cut from the same cloth as The Melvins, Tad and I should say Motorhead...they have a song called Motorhead on their "Matilda" EP. "The Ballad of Mosquito Guns" is a bad ass tune that'll keep your nodding throughout. You may also find yourself chugging beer at an extremely higher rate than usual. Mosquito Mike on vocals can really howl n' growl while the guitar's crunch some power chords. This track features a nice breakdown and solo action before firin' back into the beat. Go see what the Barrel Heads are all about on Saturday at the Smiling Buddha. They'll be joined by Hormoans, Dirty Safes and Beige. - Kris Gies

HORMOANS Grind And Sweat Through The Holidays

 God damn, do I ever love HORMOANS.

I first listened to the Toronto based 3 piece rock band sometime before they released their new album, Slander, earlier this year. Time has only made their sound harder, grungier and overall better than I could have imagined. They combine the sounds of punk with classic alternative and just a hint of upbeat surf to make a sound that truly resonates and makes you want to bop your head to it. If you haven’t already listened to Slander, you absolutely have to at least listen to “Made of Stone” and “Crowbar”, two of my favourite tracks off the album that showcase the variety and smooth mixing of styles of Hormoans that remind me of bands like The Distillers or even Pavement. Punchy drum beats, upbeat and catchy guitar riffs peppered with some really smooth bass lines make this whole album a gem in my books. Make sure to listen to Slander and their 2013 album, Millar.
