Hot Garbage - "Max Blonda" EP, Playin Smiling Buddha 01.20

Psychadelic garage rock group Hot Garbage just released a brand new EP at the end of the last year called “Max Blonda”. They have some unique characteristics that set them apart from some of the other top notch garage groups in Toronto right now. The main is the jazz influenced drums. That along with the menacing keyboards and atmospheric vocals their tunes take you for a serious ride. All can be heard on the track “Kimono Dragon” from their latest release. Hot Garbage plans on heading to the States for a tour this summer but first they will be playing The Smiling Buddha on January 20th as part of Exclaim’s Class of 2018 Series. – Kris Gies

New Track: "Inna Funk" - Trash Knife

Later this year, hardcore quintet Trash Knife will be dropping a split 7” with Dumb Vision, via Wisconsin label Kitschy Manitou Records. Building from a rockin', unified base, “Inna Funk” hits into next gear when the song's defiant vocals kick in. That impending, unfiltered urgency shifts the tone with a swift shot of adrenaline. The switch is flipped, and there’s no looking back.

Debut Prom Acid Album Available for Streaming & Download

The duo of Prom Acid just released their debut album. Holy Moldy twists creepy noise-engulfing trance, in a chaotic heady kaleidoscope. Fuzzy, synth-induced grooves and heavier guitar-anchored tracks mingle together, warping the mind. Continuously shifting the ground below one’s feet, a leapfrogging level of experimentation radiates.

Faiyaz & the Wasted Chances - New Tunes, Rockin' Horseshoe 02.06

Ahead of their new album due out early 2018, Faiyaz and the Wasted Chances have released a pair of singles. “Breakfast In Bed” is a quick lo-fi rocker with really catchy guitar over a thumping rhythm section. The tune has some great slacker rock qualities to it and the vocals contain some Joe Strummer vibes as well.  “Spilt Milk” is the second tune of the split single and is a bit more hectic than the first track. A real banger live I would imagine. Two breakfast tunes to get your year started courtesy of Faiyaz and the Wasted Chances.  They will be playing the Horseshoe Tavern on February 6th. – Kris Gies

Garage rockers The Maxims release peculiar video for “Endless Mind”

Three piece garage rock outfit The Maxims made their debut last summer with the release of their eponymous EP, a collection of five songs that showcase their reverence to the retro sound of classic garage rock and soul. Steeped in the sounds of gritty guitars and swirling organs, The Maxims is as brash as it is sly, drifting between foot-stomping blues numbers to cool-headed 60s swagger. Last week, The Maxims released a grainy, peculiar music video for the EP’s first song, “Endless Mind”, which you can watch below. -Charley Ruddell
