Sold For a Smile & God Is an Astronaut

Last weekend on Mano A Mano – Concept Album We had a God and the Devil theme suggestion that we fulfilled with two amazing albums. We were also able to do something we have been hoping to do for a while and feature a bands amazing album and an amazing album that they like. The first Album that we feature was CDN band The Gandharvas and their 1998 MCA release “Sold For A Smile” followed by a band that Gandarvas lead singer is a fan of God is an Astronaut and their 2008 self titled release.

I&II – Audio Boffins

We featured the Audio Boffins new album I&II on Mano A Mano while doing our NBA fantasy draft picks. Unfortunately there is talking over the music but it is mainly instrumental. We will eventually put together a proper Concept Album podcast to feature this amazing band but we figured we should add it to the mosaic.

Make A Pest A Pet – Age of Electric

Choose Yr Own Festival — Saturday, 20 April 2019

KWCDIY, HAVE HOPE, CKMS and DIFFERENT STROKES PRESENT

KW CHOOSE YOUR OWN FEST 2019


$10/Venue | $15/All Venues | $5/Prfm | Kitchener-Waterloo's Choose Yr Own Fest '19 | Saturday April 20th * 2019 | Patent Social | Chainsaw | Night School | Harmony Lunch | (very long list of bands) | Sponsored by | Long & McQuade | The Different Strokes Company | CKMS Radio Waterloo

The Inaugural Kitchener Waterloo Choose Your Own Festival will take place Saturday April 20th , Uptown Waterloo from 2:00pm – 12:00am. Spanning four venues within seconds of each other, the festival is sure to be a unique experience. A delight to veteran concert goers, and newcomers alike.

Patent Social, Chainsaw, Night School, and Harmony Lunch will host the first ever Choose Your Own Festival. Boasting over 50 musical acts from the KW region and Ontario abroad, The festival serves in conjunction with the local seasonal Punk Rock Flea Market typically hosted by KWCDIY, which will take place at Chainsaw from 2:00pm – 6:00pm featuring over 20 vendors and local entrepreneurs. Please note The festival is all ages, excluding Chainsaw past 8:30pm.

The Inagural Kitchener Waterloo Choose Yr Own Festival | Saturday April 20th 2019 | Patent Social | Chainsaw | Night School | Harmony Lunch | 2:00pm until after Midnight

The festival is the brainchild of former ne’er-do-well, and current local musician Chris Walton. Developed as a way to get all his local (and abroad) musician buddies together for a one day gig, Chris hired Kyle Wappler to help co-host the festival as a means to give back to the local music community within the tri-cities, showcasing all the best independent bands in Ontario. Chris and Kyle have been involved with the local KW music scene for over a decade now. On the surface, both seem to share very different musical tastes and outlooks from one another, but at the heart of it all they both share the same proverbial DIY ethos. Kyle is no stranger to festivals, he and Chris both had roles in the success of the now defunct local KOI music fest, and is currently working on his second annual Hopefest to take place later this September. Needless to say, music in the region is at a surplus. The times are exciting to be a music fan of any genre in Kitchener Waterloo, and even Cambridge too!

“This festival is to serve the local arts community at large. To nurture and maintain a music scene for everyone at all walks of life to enjoy, is the end goal. Kitchener Waterloo’s arts community will never stagnate, if every facet from the region works together. KW’s Choose Your Own Fest stands with these inclusive values”

Advance tickets for the festival are availble at www.ticketscene.ca, Orange Monkey, Digital Print Integrity Inc., and local musical acts.

Jamie Philp Langlois – Interview

Jamie  My Ghost Videois a self-titled acoustic solo artist from Toronto, Ontario Canada. Most known for his track ‘Becoming’ witch was feature in a film that was televised to over 30 million people worldwide. Langlois is scheduled to release three brand new tracks is Monday.

What inspires your music?
The song ‘my ghost’ is about an ex gf……..most of my songs are about girls………my biggest muse. Most of my friends are women and yeah
What was it like having your song played on national television?
Having my song played on national television was definitely a dream come true. For years I had prayed for something like this to happen. I have watched so many inspirational videos and read so many quotes about success that I was starting to annoy my friends. Everyone said “do not give up” and now I know why. I have given up on music at least five times now but the urge to write kept coming back. I thank you for the opportunity.
What is something most people wouldn’t know about you or your music?
Something most people would not know about my music is that it is mainly centered around one person in my life, a girl. In fact(now you will think I am crazy) I wrote over fifty songs about this girl and one of them was in a film that went global……and now the next song that was on the fabulous CKMS radio was written about her too. Love is love and she was my best muse.
What can we expect to hear on the new tracks? Anything that really stands out from past tracks?
On the new tracks, you can learn to expect more synth as I continue to learn how to mix and explore music. I am envious at the new music that has come out now (especially radiohead and Adele) and how it is mixed.
When did you really know when you wanted to become an artist?
I have always known that I wanted to become an artist. Since I was accepted to an art school in my native city of Toronto for singing. Unfortunately, I did not end up going to the art school and went to the military instead, but that just allowed for more emotion to be placed in my music when I did start to write.
Asides from writing music for a living what do you do?
Asides from being an artist, I am ex-military so all the cool stuff that comes with that shows up in my everyday. I served for a few years in the Canadian Forces and was able to travel a bit. In my spare time I really like to pray and meditate as well as go for nature walks.
What was your favorite show or tour moment?
When you asked what my favorite show or tour was at the moment I felt something snap inside my head and my brain started to overload…..I swear smoke is coming out of my ears because there are so many and I live and breathe music. As it stands right now, anything Sia……..I love her expression in her music. I actually asked a few big name music stars to mentor me but just got rejected but now if I was to have anyone show me the ropes, it would be Sia, she is a trademark from space!!!
If you could be signed by any label who would it be?
If I could be signed by any label, it would be Sia’s label…..or one of them
