My favourites of 2010

My favourite albums of 2010 have been documented in print with FFWD, and also with CJSW. I had a few extra write-ups for the FFWD list, but due to space, they were cut. Figured I might as well post 'em here...


1. Mi Ami - Steal Your Face (Thrill Jockey)

Steal Your Face grabbed me immediately upon its April release, and has yet to let go. A three-piece from San Francisco, Mi Ami features Daniel Martin-McCormick and, until recently, Jacob Long, both formerly of the downright visionary D.C.-based post-punk group Black Eyes. Mi Ami takes some of the no-wave and post-punk elements that Black Eyes used, but merges them with elements of dub and neo-psychedelia to create one infectious smattering of deeply grooved noise-rock.

Martin-McCormick’s treble-shearing guitar-playing often recalls Arto Lindsay’s work with no-wave pioneers DNA, but in a new context appropriate for 2010. As for Martin-McCormick’s vocals, I’ve heard him described as a “shrieking chainsaw lady,” which seems accurate enough, aside from the “lady” part. Over Steal Your Face’s six songs, Mi Ami operates as an unstoppable kinetic force, sounding fresh, vital and downright exciting. “Latin Lover” should destroy any dance floor, “Harmonics (Genius of Love)” should destroy your speakers, and “Slow” will ride that avant-funk backbeat into the ground, leaving a moment of silence before tasteful guitar feedback melts what’s left. Utterly thrilling, and I hope their new lineup as a duo remains just as interesting — Dolphins, their next EP, comes out in March.

2. Broken Water - Whet (Night People)
Broken Water is a trio from Olympia, and their album Whet grew on me continually this year. My girlfriend and I drove down to Missoula to see them live, and they were fantastic. Very indebted to late-‘80s Sonic Youth/Live Skull—their male vocalist somehow sounds like a cross of Thurston Moore and J Mascis. Expect to hear more about this trio in 2011, as they’ve started coming into their own sound nicely. Also: Broken Water's "Normal Never Happened" 7" single on Fandeath, also released this year, is excellent.

3. Stalwart Sons - Burn Daylights Like Torches
Stalwart Sons’ Burn Daylights Like Torches is the exact sort of album I’ve always wanted to come out of Calgary, or even the prairies in general: sounding somewhere between Fugazi and the Constantines, with enough bent guitar strings and passionately poetic references to frozen ground to make any angry young prairie-dweller proud. Frontman Kevin Stebner just published his first book of poetry, even! (Revolution Winter)

For more information on my other favourites, just check out the list on CJSW.

I'll post the most in-depth, show-specific one here, and it should also be mirrored on the CJSW website, so be sure to check back in December for that.

and here are some reviews!

Brain Fever - New Songs

This Calgary post-hardcore band was nice enough to send their newest recordings my way, so here are some thoughts: these songs are pretty intense. And like, really emo. I like the songs a lot more when they deal in dissonant guitar and start/stop rhythms, as in the first halves of the first two songs. I'm not quite as into the quiet, clean parts--I appreciate the attempts to include shifting dynamics, but they feel a bit forced at the moment. That said, I like the third song the most. Not exactly my cup of tea, but I think this band is getting better at focusing their efforts--always a good thing in post-hardcore.

Sans AIDS / Lake Country - Split Tape

A split release from Edmonton's Sans AIDS and Victoria's Lake Country--I like 'em both, but I gotta say, the Sans AIDS side of the tape is getting far more spins on my end. I'm reminded of many of my favourite indie rock bands of the '90s, but with a unique touch that's all songwriter Peter Sagar's own. As for Lake Country's side of the split, I get more nods to fairly standard garage/indie rock, but done more than competently--if it weren't for the strength of the Sans AIDS side, I might be able to offer something a bit more substantial. Keep an eye out for the new Sans AIDS tape on Bart Records and grab 'em both--between this and Outdoor Miners, we've got something special on our hands here, Alberta.

Fist City - Demos / Live Fisting TAPE

Lethbridge's Fist City have released this tape and their debut LP at roughly the same time, so here's the skinny on the tape: it shares tracks w/the LP, but obviously in different recordings. The demos are appropriately raw, but honestly, the live tracks are where it's at. Live recordings (esp. those of garage/punk/etc rock bands) tend to be grainy and shitty sounding, but considering that's what Fist City's studio recordings sound like, the live recordings on this tape sound downright clear. This band writes some amazingly catchy hooks, both vocally and musically--they don't need to be hiding behind bad production. Plus, there's a quick little take on "Having an Average Weekend", and anything that reminds me of the Kids in the Hall gets a thumbs up.

May 31st 2010...

...was a pre-recorded show of electronica or something, so we'll just call it a wash and make up for it next week. I was out at the Caribou show this night, hence why it was a filler show for the station.

Hair Police are coming to town! Looks like they're opening for Awesome Color at Broken City on April 16th. Well, the Broken City website lists that date as the Madcowboys and some other whatever punk rock regulars that play whatever venue every month, but the Awesome Color myspace lists the show as April 16th. Hopefully this all gets cleared up, because Awesome Color w/Hair Police would be one hell of a show to check out this month.

Admittedly, Awesome Color are very dull on record (really derivative and boring, which is an awful place for any sort of rock band to be in right now), but they were quite good opening for Dinosaur Jr the last time they were in town, back in 2007. Hair Police, though... they're going to rule. I've never seen them firsthand, but I've heard their live performance described as a "visceral experience". If they're anything like their recordings... ("Strict" has always been a favourite of mine to play on the air during pop songs, it wakes people up).

March 22nd 2010

I caught a really nasty case of food poisoning, so although I was at school for several hours, I pretty much felt like death and had to leave my class early to go sleep at home. So, my good friend and roommate Kevin filled in the show for me, and he played lots of really angry music (Orchid, 1994!, Shokei, Brain Fever...) I'll nab a playlist from him at some point and post it up. The dude knows more about emo/post-hardcore than anyone, for real.

lost gem from the '90s...

The Raymond Brake... sounding somewhere between Polvo and Superchunk, and also from NC. Piles of Dirty Winters, their lone full length from 1995, is one of the best albums I've ever been recommended. I'm very surprised that there's a video for this song, but hey, I'm not complaining!

February 2nd 2010

This is it-- it's February, the month Each One Teach One burnt out from its Tuesday evening timeslot in a blaze of glory. Or rather, fuck it, the programming schedule at CJSW is changing and I've gotta get my noise-rock nonsense onto another timeslot. Tentatively, it's going to be Mondays from 11 PM - Midnight. As such, February is going to be incendiary: all the jams, lots of energy, obnoxious feedback: I'm going to try my hardest to not hold a single thing back this month.

Here's tonight's playlist:
