Motherhood (Fredericton, N.B.)
A trio of deep-thinkin’ rippers, New Brunswick’s Motherhood achieve one very rare and uncomplicated feat: they sound EXCITING on record and stage alike. Unlike so many awkward experiments by peers and ‘adventurous’ contemporary rock outfits, Motherhood’s music explodes with the kind of charm and exuberance you can’t just order. No, it’d take years of late nite couch-crumpled conversations, bathroom stall barfs and parking lot laughter to achieve the kind of chemistry these three exude. If we’re calling this art rock, it’s because, in 2019, commitment is a precious art indeed. And make no mistake, Motherhood is all about commitment.

Brydon Crain (guitar, vocals), Penelope Stevens (bass, keys, vocals) and Adam Sipkema (drums) have been linking arms and running into rock n’ roll oblivion repeatedly for the past eight years. Like cowpunk without the jadedness, dust rock without the drymouth; a thinkin’ people’s union for the fearless 21st.

Polly Dactic
Polly Dactic are a 3-piece synth wave band started by Miss Uranus (Hag Face) for the love of all things astrological and science fiction. Joined by Dr. Zaurus (Sunglaciers) and Nagrom Newg (Purlicue), the trio released their EP Half Nermal in 2019 and it became the most played album on CJSW that year. The band fuses electro-pop and new wave sounds into a wild experience that can take the listener from uneasy to ethereal, sometimes within the same song. Western Canada quickly took notice and they managed to earn opening spots for higher profile acts like Jo Passed, FRIGS and Tough Age, as well as repeat invitations to play Sled Island and Femme Wave. Polly Dactic plan to de-atomize by 2029.

Slut Prophet
Slut Prophet is as able to conjure two-minute slabs of sneering punk as if they are 11-minute luddite epics, like the recent cut of their track “Cyclops” from February 2019. Unpredictable as heck, the five-piece led by vocalist-guitarist Audrey Niksic can be both hammering and playful within the span of a breath, with Niksic’s versatile vocals keeping things just steady enough to keep you afloat. - https://m.sledisland.com/2019/slut-prophet
