Although PORT JUVEE embody a sound that is equally indebted to New York City post-punk and California surf garage, the Canadian prairies is where the band calls home. The 5-piece’s latest release, CRIMEWAVE is a collection of 7-songs, produced by the band with help from Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend “Contra”).
Between the ramshackle post-punk urgency of "Double Vision," the lackadaisical punk of "Bleached Out Soda Pop," "Trapped Under Water’s" pounding garage rhythms and the 80’s-inspired escapism of the title track, PORT JUVEE’s CRIMEWAVE offers the band’s most dizzying assortment yet.
PORT JUVEE has supported DIIV, Titus Andronicus, Twin Peaks, Sticky Fingers, Bleachers and The Orwells, and played a multitude of festivals including CMJ, Sled Island, X-Fest and Rifflandia.
"Garage rock genius” – Beatroute Magazine
“A tireless vibe that does not let down” – Culture Collide NYC
“Their songs aren’t just catchy, but thought provoking and knee shaking” – Earshot!
It’s not a rare sight to see Painter (vocals) dripping in sweat or the boys, Skiba (guitar), Gritchen (guitar), Stoddart (drums) and Trevena (bass) drenched in beer and knee deep in broken drumsticks. With their energy, it’s surprising that anyone manages to keep any liquor in their cups. Their close, almost fraternal bond keep things tight and dynamism high, like a bundle of live wires they keep each other lit and alive. If there’s one thing Bad Animal isn’t running low on, it’s flair and pure, rough and tumble drive. - https://www.facebook.com/ListenToBadAnimal/
Seth Anderson, The Renegade Kid, has been steadily building a Canadian music career from the ground up for over four years. Applying his blue collar work ethic to his music, of which he is most recognized for his catchy, truth laden, heart driven lyrics. “Anderson grabs your attention with a pure, honest, heartfelt sound that jumps out at you from the first note and stays with you long after you've stopped listening.” (Mike Gowing, Gray Dog Productions, Montreal, PQ).
With a knack for songwriting, driven by a love of the road, The Renegade Kid has released two independent albums, Late Night Renegade (2006) and Refuge at Trail’s End (2008 Socan/BMI), and embarked on four Cross-Canada tours, one Western-Canadian Tour, and two Maritime-Canadian tours. His sophmore effort, Refuge at Trail’s End (2008 Socan /BMI), was recorded with Alberta based sound engineer/producer, Steve Loree. Loree has lent his hand to such artists as Corb Lund, Washoard Hank, and Steve Coffee, in a long list of great Albertan-Canadian musicians and songwriters. Amongst his travels Seth has shared the stage with the likes of Matt Andersen (Maritime/International blues man), Jon Brooks (Nationally Nominated Folk Singer) and countless other up and comers from the deep pool of Canadian talent!
Growing up in the countryside of rural Southern New Brunswick, Anderson has called Canmore, Alberta his home for the last five years, where he has grown into the well rounded musician/singer/songwriter as he is recognized today. “Anderson can stand strong beside artists such as Dustin Kensrue (Thrice), Steve Earle or Brian Fallon (Gaslight Anthem).” (Cheryl Stornelli, Soundproof Magazine, Brantford ON).
Staying strong the course, The Renegade Kid is planning to record his third album, “Rocky Town Heartache”, which is set to be released in the late fall. Before heading into the studio though, he will be embarking on a three month string of shows including VIA Rail Train appearances, Western and Eastern Canadian dates, and appearances in the United Kingdom.
“Whether he's on stage, or playing on your mp3 player, there's an honesty that you can't deny. There is truth to be told as you walk your own path to find your own refuge. You may find the Renagade Kid at a train station somewhere hitching a ride to the coast on his way to the next show, and if you do see him, ask him to play song for you. You may just learn a thing or two about yourself.”(Mike Gowing, Gray Dog Productions, Montreal, PQ)
