— Fake Palms
Fake Palms are a Toronto-based band signed to Buzz Records. First conceived as a collection of bedroom demos recorded with a broken drum machine by Michael le Riche in 2011, the project coalesced into a band in early 2015 when le Riche recruited several long-time contributors to Toronto’s music scene, including members of Hooded Fang and Slim Twig’s backing band.
FRIGS is a Toronto-based band that pairs the raw, emotional grunge of PJ Harvey with the immersive, psychedelic post-punk of early Sonic Youth. With each member bringing a unique set of influences, FRIGS creates a sound that is hard to pin down and an impression that’s unshakable.
Led by the force of Bria Salmena’s vocals, the band has earned a reputation for putting on an hypnotic and visceral live performance. Embracing the mercurial and experimental, their shows are built upon instinct; a vocal growl can unexpectedly give way to a hushed whisper; languid drones boil over into guttural and searing tones.
Juniper Bush is the musical child of Lizzy Burt, Adrian Schroeder, Danny Hacking and Kyle Loewen. An experiment of likenesses that merge together in an explorative base of indie psych rock. A road block to the beauty of what could have been. A forgiving but undeniable penetrative existence.
