CELEBRATING THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY AND REISSUE OF CHANGE OF HEART's 'SMILE'
CHANGE OF HEART (Toronto Alt Rock Legends)
Change of Heart started in the year of 1982 by rattling the windows of the Blurton household in the west end of Toronto. A bizillion bands later these influential Canadian musicians return with a live tour to support the 25th anniversary of their critically acclaimed 1992 album 'SMILE'.
THE HEAVY MEDICINE BAND (Ottawa Psychedelic Rock)
Merchants of psychedelic dreams and electric rock, The Heavy Medicine Band is lead by dark yet benevolent vocals, through ephemera of weaving acid-wash guitars and sympathetic drones of pounding drum and bass. "Heavy Medicine Band Make heavy rock informed by the blues and are wont to push themselves to psychedelic heights...They have a tight rhythm section holding things down, helping the band reach those highs without ever making the songs feel like endless jams. Vocalist/guitarist Keturah Johnson's vocal melodies were revelatory, which was especially the case on "Speak Light (Dear One)," where she held little back, flooring everyone in the room in the process." --Exclaim! (Michael Rancic, Megaphono Festival, February 2016)
