Hey Rosetta!

Canadians know how to do jubilation right. From the coast of the Atlantic comes Hey Rosetta!, sailing ashore with an overflowing chest of wonders filled with group chants, crunchy guitars, wailing string sections, and layered instrumentation of all shapes and sizes. Longing and thoughtful anthems build and build into celebratory walls of sound throughout. The band aims to embrace the intuitive and animalistic side of humanity, and their triumphant indie rock is sure to rouse all half-awake listeners into the congregatory expanse of their music.

Bry Webb & The Providers

Fatherhood gave grit voiced Constantines frontman Bry Webb the inspiration he needed to compose spacious reflections on life, family and responsibility. The crashing noise of Webb’s other gig is replaced with threadbare folk and country, where the space between every finger-plucked note tells a story in itself. Topped with a smoothly pensive voice, each song creates warm, introspective moods to get lost in.

Barry Miles

When this Murder Murder vocalist decided to go solo, Barry Miles figured the best possible chaps to back up his own handcrafted psychedelic bluegrass and folk rock would be, well, Murder Murder. The boys are back in this new configuration to show off Miles’ McCarthy-tinged, twanged out and resonant tunes, structured lovingly for a new solo album out this August and available early for R&S.

Hello Holiday

Hello Holiday is the cathartic outlet of Jeff Valentini, born out of the singer/guitarist’s homesickness while living in Montreal. Hard-hitting indie rock with alternative and post elements relates stories of dysfunctional relationships and the alienation of big cities. What started as an exorcism of nightmares for Valentini has become a heavy, rollicking experience for listeners.

DUNES

Let’s face it, we’re all pretty awkward. Dunes, consisting of some of Sudbury’s hard(ly) working highschoolers, aims to one-up us all with next-level “painfully awkward” performances, mixing punk and slacker rock with a variety of silly, surfy keyboard lines and zany live hijinks. The enthusiasm they show for fooling around makes being weird just not seem that bad.

Dirty Princes

Sudbury punk vet Shawn Kosmo has wowed his fair share of audiences through sensual duets with laptops and literally show-stopping mid-song comedy routines. Now he’s back with his strangest trick yet, a real live band made up of real life people. Kosmo’s melodic sensibilities and dramatic showmanship meets the band’s hard hitting and funky-fresh moves, proving that the Dirty Princes are, in fact, a local band.
