The Sonic Tapestries of The Alpacas

This podcast and video have been a long time in the making. This was filmed as Radio Waterloo was leaving the 108 King Street Studio Location. Because of that the audio is a bit glitchy in the podcast but as you can tell in the video above the harmonies provided by the Alpacas were unwavering.

Check out this amazing band in the video above and podcast below.

 

Colin Stetson & Sarah Neufeld

Colin Stetson is a past Mano A Mano “Rock Cut Feature Band of the Week” and is featured in an episode of the “Electrifying Adventures of DJ Jeff E Jeff” (Mano A Mano’s Radio Comic that features only CDN content)

So, when this new Colin Stetson collaboration with Sarah Neufeld came into the station it immediately peaked our attention. After one listen it is amazing! Check out the new material above in our podcast and if you haven’t see what Colin Stetson can do check him out in the video below:

Rock Cut Video: For Esme “You”

Coming up on July 24th is the WAYHOME music festival! The line-up boasts some great musicians from across the content including one of our past feature bands: For Esme

This podcast was released a while ago when we found their vinyl in the station! We were thrilled to test out the vinyl and find a rich combination of atmospheric sounds combined with great song writing. For Esme has just released a new track and is set to release a new album called “Sugar” later on this year. The new track is called “You”. This months Rock Cut Video is “You” by For Esme. Check it out below!

Rock Cut Feature: Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Godspeed You! Black Emperor is a band that is near and dear to our hearts. They are the one of the first bands that we featured on “The Electrifying Adventures of DJ Jeff E Jeff”, our Audio Comic that features great Canadian Bands. As such, when we saw their new album ‘Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress’ we knew we had to release it on the same day that we closed out The Electrifying Adventures – Canada Day!

Sit back and enjoy this soundscape! Then go and pick up this album! You will not be disappointed!

Rock Cut Feature: Paul Jago

We found out earlier this year that Paul Jago was going to be releasing some new songs. He just recently put out a few demo tapes! We aren’t sure if he is going to be taking these into the recording studio or not….but we were so stoked to hear these that we had to do a feature. Check them out above!

Okay so this is less of a review and more a video of one of our favourite performances from the festival. We just got this tech the day before the festival and untested we embarked on the electrifying adventure. Obviously we need to invest in a tripod and a windscreen but this video should get the idea across about how awesome this band is!

Their were soo many bands we had the pleasure of seeing including our shows favourite local band Pick a Piper! But the highlight of this years festival was the band Son Lux who put on an amazing performance! Check out a track here:

The Smashing Pumpkins!
