Dead Fibers (Edmonton)
A megalomaniac gorges himself on a number of toxic substances and stumbles into another consecutive night of dehydrated, tooth-grinding madness. The soundtrack to his evening: Dead Fibres’ forthcoming release “Disgusting People with Disgusting Motives”. The album is a brash, self-destructive and introspective piece that is at all times loud and chaotic. With this release the band sought to create an album that was consistent not only sonically, but also thematically. “Disgusting People with Disgusting Motives” deals with the baser elements of humanity that are driven by vice and lust, those of which that can be found by making a trip over to the wrong end of town. It is a filthy and grimey exposé of these elements as well as a passé cry for help. “Disgusting People with Disgusting Motives” is not to be missed if you’re looking to revel in the nastier side of life. Just be weary of the hangover that is sure to follow.
Dead Fibres were begotten within the booze-flooded months (and years) of directionless anxiety following the conclusion of high school and out of this monotonous milieu they have managed to birth a distinctive blend of grunge, punk and psychedelia that is both aggressive and rhythmically driven. In late 2014 Dead Fibres dropped their self-titled debut, which was backed up with a Canada-wide tour in 2015. This summer will witness the second Dead Fibres’ Canadian Tour wherein the band will attack an expanded number of cities, bringing with them an updated sound and vision.
Dark Time is the artistic material Cayley O'Neill uproots from her dreams and nightmares. O’Neill’s music explores themes of love, addiction and mental health with unnerving honesty and a sense of twisted humour. In 2016, O’Neill joined forces with keyboardist Eric Heitmann (Speed Strips/Holgans/Purple Ryan) and guitarist Claudia Maria (The Sweets) to form Dark Time. In 2018, they brought Mathieu Blanchard on board to record drums for their first EP. They will release an EP produced by Chris Dadge in the Summer of 2018.
Holy Void (Winnipeg)
Holy Void is a nightmare inducing psychedelic quartet hailing from the wintery abyss of Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. Joining forces in the Summer of 2014 they blend surf inspired guitar tones, moog keyboard, and tons of atmospheric feedback to create an aphotic trance.
You haven’t heard a hit until you’ve heard Cascades’ infectious single “Making Out With The Boys.” It’s a tune that hits the perfect cross-section of goofiness and genuine hooks, with a plodding bassline and zesty licks keeping the balance. On other songs, the band dabbles in saccharine psych-pop and tender acoustic plucking. With just a handful of demos online, it’ll be interesting to see how it all comes together on stage. - https://www.sledisland.com/2018/cascades
