Liars, HEALTH, and Githead will all be playing Calgary as part of the Sled Island festival at the end of June. Other bands that I've played on the show that are playing: Obits, Monotonix, King Khan & BBQ Show, Japandroids, Holy Fuck, and more to be announced. More on that as the festival comes closer.

Pterodactyl's Worldwild is a solid record, although it takes several listens before it really clicks -- probably because it's not nearly as noisy as their previous album. The band seems to have traded in their harsh tones for more psychedelic leanings, but the energy is still there. There's no "Polio" on here, but Pterodactyl have begun branching out a bit -- check it out. (Brah Records)

Here's a video for "No Sugar", from Worldwild:
