August's Recommended Recordings
Metal Meets (2011)
Sitting comfortably at the heart of the Toronto local scene, Ohbijou pretty much sums up what’s best about the T.O. music community. Check out how their lush orchestrations and amazing songwriting skills have made them local fan favourites.
One Hundred Dollars
Songs of Man (2011)
One Hundred Dollars is on a hiatus right now, as band members explore other projects (check out Fiver and Deloro for some of the amazing stuff this talented group of musicians can produce). Hopefully their break is only temporary; in the meantime, listen to their last disc, Songs of Man.
Diaper Island (2011)
Multi-instrumentalist and musical innoivator Chad VanGaalen is one of Calgary’s most exciting musical projects. As the somewhat scatological title of his latest album demonstrates, he’s clearly got a sense of humor too (methinks there might be a possible Final Fantasy – He Poos Clouds shoutout implicit).
