Friday May 24th – LINDY (record release party) with SIGRUN STELLA and THE PEACEFULLS – 9pm

with Sigrun Stella
and The Peacefulls

Icelandic-Canadian songwriter Lindy Vopnfjörd has announced his seventh full-length album, You Will Know When It’s Right, for a March 29 release, led by the single “Love Me Like That”, which dropped this past Friday – listen + share.

You Will Know When It’s Right came into fruition after an invitation from legendary Icelandic songwriter Daníel Ágúst Haraldsson, leader of acclaimed electronic band Gus Gus, to team up and collaborate with Iceland’s most beloved band, Nydonsk. The album was recorded at the famed Hljodriti Studio, and includes a live performance with Nydonsk at their concert at Eldborg Harpa in Reykjavik.

Vopnfjörd is a proficient storyteller who distills human experience into the vital emotions that define a moment so crisply, and memorably. From his West Coast, Victoria-based band Northern Junk to Toronto’s explosive indie rock group, Major Maker, that boasted a fervor comparable to The Killers or Hard-Fi, Lindy’s talents have spanned many musical outfits. From his earliest albums, The Humourous Years and Suspension of Disbeliefwhich he toured extensively through the UK, to his most recent, Young Waverer, Lindy has consistently delivered a caliber of songwriting and musical arrangement, that has garnered heaps of critical accolades.

Born into the Icelandic community in Manitoba, Canada, Vopnfjörd started his music career early, singing traditional Icelandic songs with his family, helping shape this intuitive artist. By age four, Lindy was already pronouncing his “stand and care for the world” bent as an Icelandic-Canadian folk artist by singing cautionary songs against nuclear war. Traveling around by bus with his mom and dad and extended family, he developed an appreciation for performing as a form of sharing. Touring comes naturally to Lindy, and to see him live is to witness years of experience in honest delivery and authentic exchange with a dedication as real to a room of three, as when he’s performing to a stadium-full.

Over the course of now seven albums, Lindy have mesmerized, delighted and moved audiences at house parties and bars to embassies, theatre halls, touring with Whitehorse, and playing large festivals, such as Osheaga, the Reykjavik Folk Festival, and Hillside Festival.

Residing now in Toronto’s Parkdale neighbourhood, Vopnfjörd and his ongoing artistry are supported by an artistic family and solid fan base, and reflects the musical pedigree of the artistic community in which he is immersed.

You Will Know When It’s Right Track Listing:

01. Love Me Like That

02. Standing On The Sea

03. Give Some Love

04. Our Greatest Irony

05. How Did We Get Away

06. Everlasting Odyssey

07. I’m So Hi

08. Lover Sister (Live In Reykjavik With Nydonsk)

CESCHI RAMOS is a rapper and singer from Connecticut who has been hopping genres and spilling guts for the better part of two decades. He has been seen outside venues at 3am in Germany playing an acoustic guitar and singing to people that didn’t want the show to end. He has written poems to fans from behind bars whilst locked up on bogus marijuana charges. He has suffered a spiral fracture of the humerus while arm wrestling a marine in Hawaii. He has recorded with and toured alongside some of independent rap music’s most influential figures, including Sage Francis, Busdriver and Astronautalis. He has been in bands described as hardcore, crunk rap, lo-fi synth pop, Latin progressive and psych-jazz-rap. He has crafted abstracted and personal narratives mining the depths of depression and heights of hope. He has slept on countless floors when hotels weren’t in the touring budget and lost girlfriends and jobs all for the love of creating and performing.

An engaging, theatrical live performer, Ceschi Ramos has treated entire venues like a stage, viewing the middle of the audience or an empty barstool as good a place as any to perform a soul-baring folk song or tongue-twisting rap track. Ceschi once described himself in song as “a martyr at most… a failure at least” and said that, “In the eyes of history I’ll be no more than a leaf on a tree.” He knows what it is to suffer for his art and is aware that music exploring the ugliness and sorrow of the human condition will always exist on the fringes of a game dominated by disposable escapism and expensive publicists. Yet he still pours everything he has into his craft, and on any given night you can find him tracking vocals at his cousin’s New Haven studio, warmly greeting fans and friends at a dive bar merch booth or rapping double-time in Japan or Europe for audiences that often don’t speak his language, but are able to see the giant heart at the core of it all // https://www.facebook.com/ceschiramos/

FACTOR CHANDELIER // starting out as a DJ in 1998, Factor Chandelier has evolved into one of Western Canada’s busiest producers. He is continuously working and touring with high caliber Canadian and American artists including: Awol One, Open Mike Eagle, Moka Only, Myka 9, Ceschi, Sole, Aesop Rock, Buck65, Gregory Pepper, Astronautalis, Sunspot Jonz, Evil Ebenezer, Merkules, Xzibit, Kool Keith, Def 3, Kay the Aquanaut and the Side Road Crew. He is known for continuously dropping top-notch product out of Saskatoon since the late ‘90s. He is the founder, owner and operator of Side Road Records (2001), releasing over 30 professional albums between Side Road & Fake Four inc. Factor’s music has garnered international distribution and he has received positive critical acclaim by way of magazine and website reviews as well as receiving radio play on college/community radio all over Canada, the US and Japan. His collaborative album “Wildlif3” with Def 3 won the WCMA for best hip hop recording in 2015.

Factor Chandelier’s production combines smooth melodic soundscapes and live instruments over immaculate drums put together seemingly effortlessly to create a distinct sound of his own and it’s for this reason he’s consistently banging out one-of-a-kind beats as one of underground music’s favorite new school producers. Factor is always trying to create original, thought-provoking music that pushes the envelope of traditional hip-hop and has drawn significant attention to this Canadian artist. Hailing from the prairies, this Saskatoon, SK born and raised musician continues to make waves with his innovative sound // https://www.facebook.com/factorchandelier/

Kiwi jr
https://kiwijr.bandcamp.com

“The joyous 10 song debut from Kiwi jr. is a lustrous 12 string paint job with reams of full grain, cordovan leathery chorus washing over the intoxicating aroma of glittering prize-fought floor fillers. All of the above have been stamped on the back of a Postcard wrapped around a Boomerang that’s landed softly on Jonathan Richman’s lawn where Nick Lowe is reluctantly but irresistibly tapping his toes to “Wicked Witches.” The pair pick it up and use the blunt edge to open an ice cold bottle of beer from the ironclad ice box holding the provisions to a party you haven’t been invited to yet, but is emanating the faint smell of shellfish and hockey pucks. In the cloud of smoke from the grill are seeming streams of consciousness telling the most absurd and delighting stories of enviable enemies, nights gone wrong, ludicrous desires matching open suspended chords, and criminally convenient opportunities to use “Burt Bacharach” as a rhyme. The sound of a friendly argument with your friends, the sound of an ocean breeze wafting through the front door of Chez Jay in June at midday, what we think about when we think about John Vincent: This record is a laser cold hit.”

Jerusalem In My Heart:
Jerusalem In My Heart (JIMH) returns with Daqa’iq Tudaiq, the third full-length album from the Montréal-Beirut contemporary Arabic audio-visual duo, following the acclaimed 2015 release If He Dies, If If If If If If (year-end lists at The Wire (#39), The Quietus (#24) and A Closer Listen (Top 10), among other accolades).

Featuring voice, electronics, buzuk and other instrumentation from composer-producer Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (Matana Roberts, Suuns, Big Brave) and complemented by the 16mm analog film work of Charles-André Coderre in live performance, JIMH continues to expand the horizons of its profound conceptual and aesthetic engagement with Arabic/Middle-Eastern traditions. Daqa’iq Tudaiq translates as “minutes that bother/oppress/harass” – which presumably needs no further explanation – and features two distinct album sides of music.

Side One realizes a long-held dream of Moumneh’s to record a modern orchestral version of the popular Egyptian classic “Ya Garat Al Wadi” by the legendary composer Mohammad Abdel Wahab. JIMH assembled a 15-piece orchestra in Beirut, enlisting the celebrated Montréal-Cairo musician/composer Sam Shalabi (Land Of Kush) as arranger and musical director for the session. Anchored by the stately hypnotic pace of plucked and percussive instruments (riq, santur, derbakeh, kanun), the piece unfolds with lush, languid, reverb-drenched manoeuvrings through virtuosic Maqam shifts (Oriental scales). Moumneh’s melismatic lead vocals and electronic production sensibility pay homage to the genre’s documented historical recording traditions, while pushing things subtly and respectfully into new territories of sonic distortion and noised, artefact-laden transmission. The song’s original title (with lyrics penned in 1928 by the poet Ahmad Shawqi) translates as “Oh Neighbour Of The Valley”, but JIMH takes a different line from the original lyric as the new title for its orchestral-electronic re-interpretation. “Wa Ta’atalat Loughat Al Kalam” (“The Language Of Speech Has Broke Down”) is an expression of wordless love and transcendent communication between two lovers’ eyes in Shawqi’s poem; JIMH re-titles the song with this line, exploding the sentiment with more complexity, tragedy and socio-political meaning – also prefiguring the formal aesthetic ruptures JIMH bring to the piece itself. Love in a time of politics, politics in a world conspiring against love, and the specificity of Arab diasporic experience in our brutish 21st century.

Side Two comprises four tracks of non-ensemble “solo” material by Moumneh which push rupture and decomposition/recomposition of tradition further into avant-garde territory – voice, buzuk and electronics take the lead on a suite of emotive and evocative songs, including the percussive loop-driven instrumental “Bein Ithnein” (“Between Two” ) and the stunningly unsettling processed vocal track “Thahab, Mish Roujou’, Thahab” (“The Act Of Departing, Not Returning, Departing”).

Daqa’iq Tudaiq is a masterful, mesmerizing artistic statement and confirms Jerusalem In My Heart as one of the most engaged and forward-looking avant-Arabic projects at work in contemporary music today. Thanks for listening. https://www.jerusaleminmyheart.com/

Ben Shemie
Always exploratory and meticulous, Shemie’s solo pursuits involve performance based experimental sound practices that integrate freeform excursions and more structured compositional music — veering into classical, radio art, new technologies and all manner of other avant-garde investigation.

Best known as singer and guitarist for art-rock-tronica act Suuns, Shemie also boasts a background in modern classical composition and experimental performance. A fascination for electronic music, specifically the seminal releases of Warp Records spurred him to experiment, expand his sound and fuse it with the conventions of many genres. Ever inquisitive, he seeks out novel conceptual projects and challenging delivery systems for his restless musical soul.

Briscos Blues Revue
https://www.facebook.com/BriscosBluesRevue/

Formed in 2012 in Hamilton Ontario, Briscos Blues Revue was the idea of Greg Brisco and Doug Smith which was, to form a super group of musical friends, and play the music we love, the Blues. With each of us having such a wide span of influences, we decided it would be fun to tackle the lesser played music which initially inspired us as eager young musicians.
Our city Hamilton, was once the blues music factory of Canada. We gave the world the likes of King Biscuit Boy, Rita Chiarelli, Jackie Washington, to name a few. Blues thrives deep in an industrial city. Music trends will always change and go far beyond the blues, but blues draws a loyal audience as it becomes harder to find in the chaos of electronic experimental dance music today. As a band now, with a soft spot for the blues, BBR didn’t waste any time getting back to the basics. Naturally we turned to some of the greatest songs from our records, decided to play them well, and give blues back to our city.
With Greg Brisco on keys and vocals, and Doug Smith on guitar and vocals, Adam Fielding on drums, Joe Pinto on harp, and Johnny “Red” MacDonald on bass, BBR was launched at This Ain’t Hollywood. With their great support, the band played monthly shows and were able to find our sound. Each member offered song suggestions and we eagerly accepted the challenge to learn each other’s new music. We found people really enjoyed hearing songs other than the standard blues covers, and it encouraged us to dig deeper into our archives to find the best grooves and arrangements.
Enjoying some local success sharing our particular flavour of the blues, we attracted guest musicians who wanted sit in for a song at our shows. We’ve had many guests over the years including Kelly Jay of Crowbar, and actor Vinnie Pastore of The Sopranos fame (who is a great frontman/blues singer by the way).
In 2017, BBR was blessed to have Ty Price, a fine musician join us on bass. With his many years of experience performing, and with his knowledge of music as a vinyl collector, Ty was a perfect fit for BBR. The sound of the band changed, which allowed us to present an even wider range of blues styles and the influential music from our collections.
Today, Briscos Blues Revue is proud to be playing great blues music in our city and making new fans of this music. One time a “millenial” came up to me and asked me what kind of music this was, saying – he loved it. We were never more proud.

Spider Costello & The Pretty Faces
https://www.facebook.com/spiderandtheprettyfaces/

After the passing of Stone Blue, I decided to put together a new band, something I’ve had the idea for on the back burner for some time. The new band will pay tribute to the Best of the British Blues/Blues Rock/Rock & Roll of the 60s and 70s, and feature such artists as The Animals, Jeff Beck, Blind Faith, Cream, Deep Purple, Faces, Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, The Pretty Things, The Yardbirds, and, of course, The Rolling Stones.

WAX MANNEQUIN

Wax Mannequin (Christopher Adeney) has honed his weird, folk-punk anthems over years of travel and tribulation. His songs are dark and thoughtful at times, pounding and ridiculous at others…or all of these things at once. Songsmith, performance-art provocateur and self-sabotologist, Wax Mannequin continues indefinitely to carve a deep, indelible groove across the face the modern music underground. He prepares to release his 7th full-length record — Have A New Name — a captivating collection of surreal folk and experimental pop songs.

Check out the new album here..

KIM BARLOW

World travelling, multi-award nominated Kim Barlow is relaunching her musical life in Nova Scotia after many years in the Yukon and a recent parenting hiatus. Creative and intelligent writer of songs, skillful on guitar and clawhammer banjo, Barlow has recorded six albums of her own work and many collaborations. Her newest recording features some of the East Coast’s best: Mark Adam on drums, Nicholas D’Amato on bass, special guests including Old Man Luedecke, and strong new songs about domestic minutiae, the larger picture, and a wild slant on some traditional Maritime tunes.

SATURDAY MARCH 23 – DEEPS ALBUM RELEASE W/ FRY TRUCK & DJ AERILE WILD – 9pm

Image may contain: text

Hamilton Exclusive Release of Deeps’ Debut Album – In the Aftermath of Last Night – $15 at the Door March 23 2019 @ This Aint Hollywood.

Opening the night will be Hamilton’s Fry Truck and spinning songs all night is DJ Aerlie Wild.

Deeps : www.deeps.ca

The album pays tribute to his Americana roots, with a heavy addition of bar-room pop rock. Like Springsteen, a strong hometown narrative runs through Deeps’ writing. Songs about rusting in Steeltown, rock n’ rolling to pay the bills and small city romance, delivered with attitude-filled vocals, and punctuated by southern gospel guitar, searing organ and upbeat drums.

Fry Truck : https://www.frytruckmusic.com/

Alt-Country, Americana, Canadiana, Hard Folk… Whatever you call it, it’s just great music. Fry Truck has been turning heads in the Hamilton music scene since their first show at This Ain’t Hollywood in 2012. Since then they have become known as one of Hamilton’s “super-groups”, bringing together the stellar songwriting of Dave Pomfret, Dan Medakovic and Chris Altmann, with the superb musicianship of Carrie Ashworth (bass), Robin Pirson (drums) and Matt Coleman (fiddle). Fry Truck has performed three times at Hamilton’s Supercrawl Festival, and are now planning to record their debut CD.
