Night Owl Festival 2018 - Top Gun Picks!

The annual garage/psych extravaganza is back on in Toronto this coming weekend. The Night Owl Festival has brought in some amazing bands from all over the world such as King Khan & The Shrines, Night Beats, Michael Rault, Pearl Earl and the Allah-Las but also boasts some of the top local bands on the circuit. Here are the locals you won’t want to miss:

Brenda – A Deli favorite; Brenda brings a big fuzzy intensity along with a unique loud/quiet dynamic that makes you wanna bang your head and lock your doors simultaneously. Brenda will be playing Friday at The Horseshoe Tavern.

Peeling – A part of the Buzz Records team; Peeling blends pure noise rock with eerie grunge influences. Peeling plays Saturday at Lee’s Palace

Vypers – Heavy garage rock influenced by that California psych sound. These guys have really come into their own with the release of their latest EP “Champion 100”. “Mr.Girl” is a highlight where they add some nice melodies to their garage rock chaos. Vypers also play Saturday Night at Lee’s Palace

Luna Li – She is known as the garage rock princess of Toronto. Luna Li plays both guitar and violin which makes for a wild combo. She released a new single “Silver Into Rain” over the summer and will be playing closing show for The Night Owl Festival on Sunday at the Rec Room.

All shows will also include tarot card readings, facepainting, colouring and so much more. Ticket and event information here. - Kris Gies

New Painted Forest EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Delicately subdued, heartfelt bedroom pop streams from Painted Forest on the band's new EP Former Home Death. At ease and yet emotively exposed, the album embraces fragility with the stubbornness and strength to move forward; the lingering effects of the past meet the present. Acknowledging the personal impact, which is packaged in a spacious setting, the weight of the moment becomes swept up in the breeze. Float away in the sincere daydream.

Joe Kenkel's "FBP" is weird, earnest indie music at its finest

 Let's get real for just a second- "FBP" is a weird song. But don't let that deter you- this is definitely my favorite weird song of 2018. "FBP" stands for Football Poet- at least that's the main lyrical hook in the song. I'd like to ask singer-songwriter Joe Kenkel what exactly that means, seeing as football and poetry couldn't be more unrelated, but let's look to the lyrics for clues, shall we? "Breakin' my bones / singin' for you" gives some indication that perhaps there is a sense of beauty in football, or that there's something poetic about a tackle? Clearly all of this is part of a grand scheme to impress a lover, but for what reason... I'll let you decide. Kenkel even animated a trippy music video for the song, which you can watch here. Enough speculating on my part- this is weird, earnest indie rock at it's finest. -Geena Kloeppel
