THE LONELY PARADE (Peterborough alt rock)
"Three headed beast made up of young women that sounds like Bikini Kill, Gang of Four and Mudhoney were put in a blender for 51 years then sprinkled with spices you have never tried before but, once you’ve tasted, will not be able to live without." - Kazoo
JON HYNES (Ottawa folk/rock)
"Working with producer James Bunton (Obijou, KASHKA, Evening Hymns), the layered instrumentals weave throughout Watchful Creatures, giving it a complexity that allows one to have a new experience through each listen. The songs leave the listener wanting, each one is a carefully crafted work on its own, and adds something special to the album as a whole. For me, not knowing what to expect from song to song is a secret joy that makes listening to an album front to back exciting." - Ottawa Showbox
