Ornament & Crime: LES COUSINS EP





Ornament & Crime just released their new 5-track EP, named after the UK studio where it was created. The gritty rock/ blues duo are talented singers and instrumentalists as they tell stories with their words and spaces. Leaving the dust for the rain, Vancouver became home to Tom and Suzy in 2009. After trying many ways to tell their story, they soon turned their drums and guitar into an on-stage limitation necessary for finding their creative freedom. The sound that resulted was loud, clam- oring and desperate. Taking notable inspiration from bands like The Kills, She Keeps Bees, and The White Stripes, they bring a sparse, dramatic and mangy sound to the floor. Grab the EP below and email ornamentampersandcrime@gmail.com to purchase one of the limited edition of art booklets (with download). Much respect.

ODDISEE- Out Da Box TV interview

I've been raving about Oddisee's new album People Hear What They See since the day it came out...the Washington DC/ New York City producer and MC is one to watch for if you haven't already caught on. This interview touches on a lot of things that need to be said. My favourite part is when he explains how he manages his time and knows how to live off of making less than what is expected. In this era where most artists have adopted the do it yourself lifestyle, it's inspiring to see a successful artist staying humble and simple. He's playing in Vancouver on Nov 10 and Whistler on Nov 11.

Dam Funk- I Don't Wanna Be A Star


Yes. Dam Funk is a legend. I had the honour of doing back to back shows alongside him in Melbourne last year and he THREW DOWN. His N.O.N.C.A.T. (Not One Negative Comment / Action/ Thought) philosophy is admirable, and always reminds me that there are other people out there who fully push positive vibes. Check out his new video..tune forthcoming on Stones Throw. Much respect.


QuestSeraphim: DOJO


Nod your head to one of the most underrated MC's in Vancouver.
