HANDS & TEETH
Hands & Teeth were born from a need to do rock music a bit differently. Each member of the four-piece ensemble brings his or her genre-spanning talents and insights from former bands to create a unique brand of groove-based, harmony-laden melodic rock which spans the divide between tried-and-true eras of rock n’ roll and the cutting edge of indie pop.
Since their inception in 2010, the band has released one EP (Enjoy Your Lifestyle), one LP (Hunting Season, ranking in the top 200 of 2012 in Canadian college radio), and have wowed crowds at shows and festivals across North America (including NXNE, SXSW, Halifax Pop Explosion) with their fresh sound and infectious onstage camaraderie. With the release of Hunting Season, Hands & Teeth have also become an increasing presence in mainstream media, seeing airplay on MTV (Jersey Shore, Catfish), CBC, and BBC radio.
After a line-up change at the end of 2012, Hands & Teeth spent 2013 honing their new sound while writing and recording new material for their sophomore EP, Before the Light, to be released March 2014.
THE GREAT MACHINE
A Disenfranchised rhythm and noise band in three parts.
The Mackinaws are a Rock N Roll band from Hamilton, ON. After performing live together for a little over a year as The Great Divide, The Mackinaws have headed into the Porcelain Records studio to lay down 9 original tracks for their debut album, due for release early 2014. Their music showcases the unique songwriting talents of 3 different singers and a drummer with an ear for song structure. The lack of one “lead singer” keeps their music interesting and the listener engaged. Come out to one of their shows to witness a rockin’ set full of high-energy original tunes and classic covers from the 60’s-90’s.
