Shy Kids – ® o c k e t s [Official Video]

Shy Kids are a Toronto-based group of three musicians, filmmakers, roommates and best friends who recently put the finishing touches on their debut album, titled Lofty! The title was inspired by their Kensington Market loft where they made the album and debut music video for the first single “Ⓡ o c k e t s”.

The music video for “Ⓡ o c k e t s” premiered yesterday and the characters, places and objects in the music video were built entirely out of candy (which took about 9 months and $600 worth). Conceptualized and created from start to finish by the members of shy kids; from sourcing the candy, imagining the plot-line and all of the editing.

Even though right now their focus is on their music, they have strong roots and a background in film. You may have seen a documentary they premiered in 2013 called Noah which received critical acclaim and won best short film at the TIFF festival that year.

Under Pressure Festival MTL 20th Anniversary

Well the time is upon us. Starting tomorrow our friends from the Under Pressure Festival in Montreal are throwing their 20th anniversary event featuring tons of amazing sub-culture features such as skateboarding, breakdancing, emceeing and of course graffiti.

Taking up a number of blocks in the downtown core of Montreal, if you are anywhere near the city you must stop by. Even if you’re not – make the drive!

Check out the map for all the details pertaining to the event here.


Music: Vesuvio Solo – “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

Montreal’s Vesuvio Solo are synth heavy and hazy both in sound and visuals – Their video for ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ dropped last week on Gorilla Vs Bear and channels some serious Lindsay Buckingham.

Listen to the whole album, ‘Favors’ here.

Music: Beach House – “Sparks”

I went to Primavera Sound a few years ago and got a 2 litre pop bottle filled with Vodka in by throwing it over the fence to a buddy. About halfway through the bottle and after a few bumps of M off a pocket knife we were drawn to the Beach House set. It was magical. Their new single Sparks, off the upcoming ‘Depression Cherry’ set for release on Sub Pop – 8/28/15, brought that spring night in Barcelona back.
