About the Bands:
Rituals is the Toronto based incarnation of art school graduate Adam Christopher Seward. After spending the summer of 2009 writing and recording in his bedroom, Adam decided to pass them around to friends. Shortly after, The hazy, cinematic post-punk songs reminiscent of the 80s post punk and no wave as well as 90s shoegaze psychedelia, became a live band. Currently they are crafting their much anticipated followup EP expecting to release in early 2013 on Mike Haliechuk (Fucked up) and Carey Kurtins’ (Belham Music Management/Dine Alone) partnership label One Big Silence, The label considered home for Diamond Rings debut EP, Austra’s debut EP, Trust and Moon King.
The oOohh Baby Gimme Mores
Toronto punk quartet The oOohh Baby Gimme Mores are a guaranteed booty shaking, fist pumping, machine built to make you sweat on the dance floor. Being named by North By Northeast as a top band, and recently placed as a finalist in Indie Week, they have been playing shows at the Edge 102.1 and Canadian Music Week, The OBGMs have shared the stage with artists such as Saul Williams, Janelle Monae and Kathryn Calder of The New Pornographers. Feeding off pure energy and oozing with infectious drums and catchy synth lines: The oOohh Baby Gimme Mores are truly harbingers of the party groove.
Fresh Snow is not music. Music died so that Fresh Snow could live. As music ascended toward the light, Fresh Snow fell down to earth. They passed each other in a corridor of indescribable beauty. They were given a message and strict instructions on how to deliver it to you. They had no pen or paper with which to write it down. Luckily it was simple: “I love you. Don’t be afraid. All is forgiven.” Fresh Snow have recently released their debut album, I on Reel Cod Records to critical acclaim.
