Flowers & Fire
"There must be something in the mountain sky or seawater, because the Northwest produces unreal post punk bands. Especially the city I now call home, Vancouver, which is also home to FLOWERS & FIRE. I saw one of their very first shows, and I knew this band had promise! Once I heard their new demo, I knew I was correct – every moment of this tape is on point. The musicianship of FLOWERS & FIRE is stellar. The vocals from this band are haunting, alluring and full of a sonic magic that will have you under her spell. I can tell that with each release, this band will only get better. FLOWERS & FIRE’s demo takes me to places where many albums can’t…Trust me when I say this is only the beginning for this band, and I feel so lucky that I live in a city where I will be able to see them live again!" -CVLT NATION
The Ruby Plumes
Glitter. Iggy Pop. That Bass Rig. Can’t be Stopped. Won’t be Stopped. Deceptively simple and always on point, the Ruby Plumes are your favourite band of (former) teenagers doing the things you wanted to do but were too scared to. Swinging with the kind of amped up bravado typically reserved for highschool football quarterbacks and MBA’s, these weirdos continue to amp up their game with every release.
New to the Lethbridge scene, no one knows whether Bummer Club is garage folk, garage rock, or garage punk. Did we include garage in front of every genre because they practice in a garage? Probably. Whatever the hell type of music it is, if you enjoy heavy distortion, and lyricism about t-rexs, winter, girls and a shitty front man you'd probably enjoy Bummer Club. Warning: they may try to bum smokes, drinks, jackets, and even pets. This message is sponsored by Rob Rice.*
