The Serfs

Midwest freakazoids The Serfs use ripe riffs, vibrating bass and pounded-out synth to move at amphetamine speed through tracks that sound a bit like Suicide and The Sonics collaborating live on TV Party. The moment you think you have a handle on their sound, you feel like a fool. They race past pastiche and into the stratosphere at a rate you can’t imagine until you see them in person.

Last Waltzon

With track titles like “Fat Piss” and “I Can’t Cook,” Montreal art rock weirdos Last Waltzon are out to have fun while delivering frenetic motorik grooves. Having cut their teeth playing tirelessly in the DIY circuit, the band has honed their post-punk snarl into a madcap sound influenced equally by CAN and The Velvet Underground.

Uncanny Valley

Specters of ‘80s goth and post-punk haunt Uncanny Valley. The band’s sound is punctuated by cold-wave synths, supported by velvety basslines, and accented by an unearthly blend of live and mechanical drumming. These haunting goth lullabies are powered by the past as they thrillingly push forwards into the future.


Brought together by the Sled Island Rock Lotto, BRIDGELAND has torn through two festival appearances with a compulsively danceable blend of kosmiche groove and art-punk snarl. With a new lineup and a debut album due to drop this year, we’re happy to welcome back these moody post-punks for the Sled Island hat trick.
