The biggest misconception about punk is that it’s never well-crafted. Case in point: Metz. This Toronto three-piece spent five years concocting their latest self-titled release. Their tireless effort manages to put the words precision and cacophony in the same sentence without being oxymoronic. With a sound falling somewhere between Nirvana and Japandroids, Metz has received countless accolades with their newest release including Pitchfork’s “Best New Music” and a showcase during this year’s SXSW.
No Joy brings the fuzz. An act that falls somewhere between alternative and shoegaze, this violent duo is made up of Montreal natives Jasamine White-Gluz and Laura Lloyd. After the success of their studio releases Ghost Blond and Negaverse, No Joy has put themselves on stages nationwide and in the U.
Buildings is a local hardcare band on the rise in the City of Lakes. Formed in 2006 in a basement thier songs are powerful loud thrashy tunes designed for a nervous breakdown. Their new record Melt, Cry, Sleep was released in December of 2011 on cash cow productions and doubleplusgood records.
