CINDERPOP play inventive, harmony-drenched, guitar-driven songs that range from orch-pop and space rock to bouncy Beatlesque power pop. Having performed with artists such as Stereolab and Sloan and featuring alumni of The Salteens, Moev & SK Robot, their eclectic sound combines free-floating vocals with dreamy melodies and pulsing guitars to great effect.

SECOND GUESS exemplifies and embodies what it means to be Canadian, their roots dug deep in indie Canadian music with an upbeat pop/rock edge and songs that are catchy and memorable. From full-bodied modern anthems reminiscent of Sam Roberts and the Tragically Hip to stripped down nostalgia a la Grapes Of Wrath, Second Guess will charm and captivate you.

COLOURSURROUND - Formed by three strung-out corporate dudes in suits who desperately needed an outlet, Coloursurround creates escapist music inspired by otherworldly bands such as Pink Floyd, Stone Roses, My Bloody Valentine, Smashing Pumpkins, Dandy Warhols, Radiohead and Jeff Buckley.

THE PARTY ON HIGH STREET delves into the many vibrant, melodic and rhythmic colors of funk-rock, reggae, jungle grooves and lush psychedelia. The Party's songs of peculiar life-experiences, travel and the far-out are inspired by youthful energy and embellished with rocking blues grooves, jazzy feel-good improvisation and mid-song funk-downs.

They aren’t a Canadian rock band because they live in Canada, but because they exemplify and embody what it means to be Canadian, and to make Canadian music. They drink double-doubles and watch hockey with a passion, but being Canadian is so much more than that. They are exactly what Canadian... more info
