VENDREDI 18 JANVIER 2013
PyPy  +Loose Pistons  +Wild Domestic  +Lonnie in the Garden  +Dj Erik Elektrik

6@8 avec Martin Goyette

PyPy réunit trois membres du vénéré groupe synth-noise Duchess Says ainsi que Roy Vucino (Les Sexareenos, CPC Gangbangs, Red Mass). On voit un air de famille : du no-wave, la férocité d’Annie-Claude, et du psych-punk avec des rythmes à la Liquid Liquid. Un habile mélange de feedback, de guitares et de voix qui risque de te refiler une heureuse migraine.

"Just when you thought garage bands were no more, enters Loose Pistons. These Montreal natives garage rock jam not only gets you on your feet, but keeps you there with amp blowing rock n' roll riffs." – Pop Montréal

On their self-titled debut Wild Domestic present a deep vastness, though only a mere shadow of the live experience. Dual drumming, three-part melodies, soaring guitars, and driving bass ALL consume your senses. Wild Domestic exhibit an effortless ability to move back and forth between the bold and subtle, relying just as heavily on the contrasts within their songs as they do their impressive cohesiveness. Between commanding vocals and instrumental narratives, their sonically driven songs are equal parts loud and quiet, extended yet deliberate, feverish and relaxed. The allure lies in keeping up with their diverse musical landscape that was captured by the band over a two year period and mixed alongside Tim Glasgow (Metric/Sonic Youth).

Onstage, everything is orchestrated with precision, yet there is also a strong animalistic quality that underlies the music. It is these incalculable factors, which the band has been crafting since their inception three years ago, that propels them forward. Performances alongside SHAD, Plants and Animals, Caribou, Rah Rah, Yukon Blonde, Buck 65, Young the Giant and festival appearances at NXNE, LOLA, BAYFEST, CMW and GRICKLE GRASS are just additional stats for this burgeoning, young band.

“If there ever was a band we felt would be the next big thing, Wild Domestic would be it.” -The Indie Machine

“Wild Domestic establishes a listening atmosphere sure to please the serious music aficionado... taking you on a musical journey that you want to travel with forever.” -Earshot!

“Wild Domestic introduce post-jam into the lexicon” -Independent Clauses

“Their new self-titled debut album embodies the same type of sonic juxtaposition as their name suggests, switching effortlessly between subtlety and grandeur, from eerie interludes to powerful breaks” - Chart Attack

London ON, based Lonnie in the Garden stems from songs written by Lynne Craven. Beginning in 2010, Craven has been forming strong harmonizing duets with fellow Choir-Girl Natasha Roberts. Since then, an ever evolving cast of musicians have all helped plant the “Garden” that now consists of members of fellow townies Wild Domestic and the Guelph ON, based sludge-folk, psych crew WHOOP-Szo. The current incarnation creates a wall of psychedelic and experimental pop sounds that compliments the female core of raspy blues and beautiful gospel. Quickly, the band has gained reverence as one of London's finest and most entertaining live acts, organizing such events as an outdoor garage sale for their recent release, hosted at their “Psychedelic Cottage” home studio and London cultural hub. When not making headway at community based events such as Car Free Day, Grickle Grass Festival, Home Made Jam and Ladyfest, Lonnie in the Garden have been pleasing crowds with opening slots for Bruce Peninsula, Born Ruffians, Sunparlour Players, Jenn Grant, Olenka and the Autumn Lovers and international hit The Jezabels.

With a prolific 2012 under their belt, double showcasing at NXNE and releasing their Out of Sound Records debut EP (Psychedelic Cottage), a split 7”, plus a limited live album release, expectations are set high for 2013.

“Trippy and elegant, this is an EP that defies easy categorization and is therefore one that you owe it to yourself to sample” - Gray Owl Point

“If you were ever a fan of seventies psych rock ala Heart, Jefferson Airplane, or Fleetwood Mac, then you'll be right at home with Lonnie.” - Indie Machine

“Perfect for an intimate setting or smokey bar.” - Wasfuesohr (German Blog)
