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:
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!
The High Dials are playing the Starlight in Waterloo this Thursday March 19th. We were spinning some High Dials and then got to chatting about what TV show you could hear that track on. We gave Trevor Anderson from the band a call to settle the dispute. Find out what program and hear some more High Dials tracks on the podcast above!
This extremely interesting album came into the station the other day and since we have been interested in many bands that have removed the vowels from their names we checked it out. The first great thing about this band was that they are from our old stomping ground of “The Hammer” (Hamilton for those not from the hammer or those who did not know it is sometimes call that for some reason)
Secondly, it is some damn great music! It is darker electronic music that has some wicked hooks to it! Some songs have elements of piano that complement the electronic songs – check it ttwwrrss in the podcast above!
We did something never before done on radio or even thought of for that matter…..Due to the severity of awesomeness of this band the Alpacas and them having a great video we decided to open the Top Shelf Video vault within the Rock Cut Feature Vault. We were glad we didn’t explode and I think that the structural integrity of the show held together because of the quality of the band and their music that we were playing. Check out a few tracks above by the Alpacas and then listen in as we review their “Comb My Hair” video that can also be found below!
This album “Space Race” came into the station and we were again intrigued by the cover art. We check it out and the music was great! DJ AdRock describes it best in the podcast above – Check it out, then check out more from this band here:
This podcast was soo much fun to create because we went to see the Gay Nineties play this past Monday in Hamilton and their show was unbelievably awesome! So a little bit of this show is us babbling about how great that show was, then we give them a call before their set at Call the office in London. We chat with Malcolm a bit and then feature a bunch of their brand new tracks from their brand new EP “Liberal Guilt” which is amazing!!! Check this podcast out!
This is a reunion that we totally missed out on! The shows were all in August and in the US with only one in Canada but up in Montreal.
We are seriously hoping that the Unicorns will come down to Waterloo and perform here on the Mano A Mano show and continue the great indie rock that we know and love from this band! Check out the podcast above for two tracks recently released that are b-sides from the time of their amazing album “Who will cut our hair when we’re gone?”
DJ Adrock always talks about Frightened Rabbit. So there isn’t much more so say about this Rock Cut Feature band called “Owl John” other than it is great and it has members of Frightened Rabbit! Check it out!
