American Lips
Any band that can claim members of both Death From Above 1979 and legendary Canadian riff rockers Tricky Woo as their own is about as close as you can get to a guaranteed party. American Lips are fun, loud and catchy as all hell—if solid party jams weren't a renewable resource, you'd be really mad they used them all up. -

The Meatbodies
After stints playing in bands for Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin, Chad Ubovich doesn’t need to prove he knows his way around a fuzz pedal. With Meatbodies, Ubovich’s brand of scruffy psychedelia is the sound of cellophane home movies catching fire and exploding out of the garage in blinding neon hues. -

It’s safe to say that Busdriver is your favourite rapper’s favourite rapper. A staple in the experimental LA beat scene, Busdriver is known for his astrologically heady raps that can evolve from dense, literary wordplay to a syrupy, Hennessey-fueled flow in the span of a verse. His last album, Thumbs, was a Bandcamp masterpiece with a cast of collaborators that read like a who’s who of the underground rap game (milo, Anderson .Paak, and clipping.’s Daveed Diggs chief among them). -

Heavy Mountain
Some kind of heartland hip hop, old folk music run through a gameboy under poems carved into a cliff wall. Beats by Kevin Stebner lyrics by Micah Stone. -

Yoo Doo Right
Lifting their name from a Can song that was edited down from a six-hour jam into a relatively compact 20-minute masterpiece was no accident. This pummeling, exploratory quartet compose through improv before refining their jams into soaring structures that explore inner and outer space with laser-like intensity. -

Leather Jacuzzi
A local punk outfit made up of members of Sudden Infant Dance Syndrome, Feel Alright, Blü Shorts and Gawker (plus one member from Toronto), Leather Jacuzzi makes the type of primal punk loved by the weirdos of Calgary. They’re a bit cleaner in production than your average freak, but they make up for it with songs about piss and evading the cops. -

Slut Prophet
Experimental trash with a feminist core, Slut Prophet is a one-woman lo-fi wrecking crew. Somehow extracting fun out of pain, she strutted onto the scene last year with ‘60s-inspired garage vitriol and a punk attitude. Bring your best mean mug and a good pair of earplugs. -

JLK & The Assassins
Jane Kasowicz (Moss Lime) makes restless music than spans from ambient to folk. Her work with The Assassins is tireless, drawing inspiration from the unreserved energy of classic rock ‘n’ roll with country undertones. JLK has the voice of someone who’s seen some things, but swaps misery for the swagger of a dust-caked night of whiskey shots with help from her expert Assassins. -

Knots returned last fall after a four-year break from releasing music. The songwriting project of Neal Moignard, Knots makes tunes that nod at classic, laid-back rock. With slacker vocals, earthy guitar licks and low-key accompaniment, his music is the perfect soundtrack to a relaxed summer day. -
