lis [NOTICE  OF   INTENT TO DIGITIZE]
[back ISSUES   OF DISCORDER MAGAZINE]
We are so excited that Digital Initiatives
is going to help us release every issue of
Discorder online! ip||
With the help of UBC Digital Initiatives,
CiTR is planning to scan back issues of
Discorder  Magazine and make them available
online. CiTR has never had formal copyright
agreements with its contributors, and all
content has been produced by volunteers and
disseminated for free to eager audiences.
Likewise, CiTR does not have express
permission from Discorder  contributors to
publish the magazine electronically and make
it available to eager readers online. When
Discorder  began, the founders had no idea
we'd be published on the Internet—sorry Mike
and Jennifer—and it would be impossible for
CiTR to identify all of the contributors
and obtain permission to republish their
work electronically. Who knows where all you~
creative people are and what cool things you
are doing.    |fi|j
Therefore, CiTR is shouting out to our
alumni and asking ahy authors, illustrators,
and designers who object to let us know
as soon as possible. Please contact me at
stationmanager@citr.ca if you have any
questions or concerns, or don't want your
contribution published online. If we do
not receive objections, we will assume that
permission has been granted. If objections
are made, we will omit these issues from the
archive. However, we hope you see the value
in releasing this content to the public.
Please share this notice with your peers
and fellow alumnii We will begin scanning
shortly and need to spread the news far
and wide.
Discorder  provides an incredible history
of Vancouver's local music scene, and we're
very excited to share this with our readers.
Sincerely,
Brenda Grunau

DADA PLAN - PG.16 —\ 1	
On the frontline of Vancouver's space-rock
scene, five-piece Dada Plan have crafted a
bizarrely unique album with their debut LP,
A Dada Plan is Free. Over beers at The Lido,
Discorder sit-down with frontman Malcolm
Biddle to discuss influences, plans for the future, and the deal behind their band's name.
COLIN COWAN - PG.26	
Colin Cowan is a dreamer who never seems
to sleep, a man very aware of his seasonal
states. Discorder chats with Cowan about his
soon to be released nostalgic album Eye of
Winter, the second in his four-season album
project, and the hope of touring with his ever-
busy "family" band.

fronted punk band.
MALK - PG.62	
The members of MALK are ready to take on
any challenges that Vancouver's busy music
scene has to throw at them. Having weathered the trials of recording together, the band
has emerged tougher, tighter, and raring up
for their next show. Awaiting the upcoming
release of their debut EP, Prehistoric, the
band discusses how it all came about.

SUB Blvd., Vancouver, B.C., V6T1Z1, Canada. EDITOR'S NOTE
STOP CALLING IT THAT,
Illustrations by Tariq Vita
III We've all heard someone say
it. Those three words meant to gut-
punch Vancouver, its proprietors, and
everyone who works hard to make
the city a more culturally vibrant
place: "No Fun City" p
It's a tired, heavy-handed term overused to the point where it feels cli-
ch£d even talking about it — but the
frequency with which I still hear this
moniker being slung means something even worse than a cliche: it
means that some people are still buying into it . -JR—   1
Where did this lacklustre nickname
come from? Unfortunately its origins
are hazy at best — after spending way
too much time with Google, the farthest back I could find documentation was the No Fun City Sim in 2009
— but it doesn't matter. It's the effect
the name is currently having that's
ultimately detrimental.
Any city can be a No Fun City if
you're stubborn enough. I would argue there's too much going on in
Vancouver; it's exhausting trying to
EDITOR'S NOTE take it all in when you're limited to
being at one place at a time as opposed to the eight places you'd like to
be at. Good problems, right?
Need more proof that Vancover's
a good time-filled town? We have a
whole issue of Discorder ready to
back up my claim of "Check out how
great this city is!" Discorder takes you
into the belly of the fun beast that is
new venue 303 Columbia; we have a
film review of last month's VIFF (and
Discorder sponsored) hit Violent; we
chat with B-Lines frontman Ryan
Dyck about his label Hockey Dad Records and what to expect from it this
month (spoilers: more The Court-
neys!); and we shine light on some
great Vancouver bands like Colin
Cowan, IA6, Dada Plan, and MALK.
"ANY CITY
CAN BE NO
FUN CITY
IF YOU'RE
STUBBORN
ENOUGH"
Go to a show. Check out one of the
50 regular dance nights happening
throughout the weeKDetox by sweating out increments of the night's
drinks with dancing at an Ice Cream
Social. Eat a brownie at Wreck Beach.
Seriously, the recommendation list
can go on forever. It's easy to buy
into the crappy unofficial title and
it's even easier to use it as a crutch
not to be proactive about having fun.
If everyone who complained about
Vancouver's nightlife spent a 10th of
that time engaging with their city,
we'd all be better for it.

FORD ATWATER - B.O.A.T.S. II. ME
TIME (2 CHAINZ) :^|^^^^8^8
The stage was set in 2012: thanks to
guest spots with Nicki and Canada's
very own Aubrey, 2 Chainz was able
to reign in his layered and onomatopoeic take on materialism and the
objectification of women. The artist
formerly known as Tity Boi hubris-
tically takes an unambiguous approach, proclaiming that all he needs
"iz a big booty ho" over a baroque trap
beat implosion. After tapering off by
2014 — and a phoned-in Jason Derulo
verse — B.O.A.T.S. II: MmTIme lacks
the grit involved in making serious
art. A sterilized album, forgettable
beats,, and uninspired subject matter
take deuce's career to its most apprehensive state yet.   ^K^Ii^J       IP

SUMMER SET)
LEGENDARY  (THE
I doubt FU ever find a band that delivers enjoyable, bubblegum-pop rock
like The Summer Set, but 20_3's Legendary was definitely a sour note in
my books. Much of my disdain comes
from its seemingly relentless desire
to reach a mainstream audience with
pop culture references, electronic elements, and, in my opinion, unnecessary profanity aplenty. (Did you really need a song called "Fuck U Over"
about, well, you know?)
ERIK JOHNSON - RANDOM ACCESS

This is controversial, but hear me
out: I was disappointed by Daft Punk's

ERICA LEIREN - THE VISITORS (ABBA)
I remember playing a cassette of ABBA'S The Visitors in my car once —
and once was enough. Coming from a
band I otherwise love, this album was
depressing; nothing like their sunny,
crystalline pop that I adored. Everyone knows the story of how ABBA exploded with "Waterloo," followed by
a string of amazing pop confections
and insane record sales, but does anyone remember how truly uncool they
became after breaking up in the early
*8os? They were banished to bubble-

JAMES OLSON - HAIL TO THE THIEF
(RADIOHEAD)
Let me start by saying this album
is not without some killer tracks —
"There There," "A Wolf at the Door,"
and especially the blistering "2 + 2 1
5" stand among the best songs written
by Thorn Yorke and company — but
in comparison to the albums that preceded and followed it, I rarely revisit Hail
to the J&ia/fWhile many of the tracks are
certainly experimental and challenging,
they lack the emotional punch that characterized the entirety of albums like OK
Computer, Kid A, and Amnesiac Radio-

MAX WAINWRIGHT - SONGS OF INNOCENCE (u2):-^if|. ""■•'  ;:■':■'.■■;'.- ftp:-, ' '"'
Since we're still in the wake of U2's infectious iTunes release of Songs of Innocence, this is a timely question. Like
many, I am a huge fan of Lte's early body
of work Classics like The Joshua 71-eeand
Achtung Babyremain unrivalled masterpieces. However, the band's latest is the
essence of what U2 has become: bland,
ostentatious and out-of-touch. It may be
the point for this longtime fan, when the
new U2 finally eclipses the old.
JASPER WRINCH - TRUE STORIES (TALKING HEADS)
This pseudo-soundtrack for David Byrne's bizarre film, True Stories, sounds
like the band was trying to tailor th«__\
sound to third-graders. The heavy reliance on bongos and grating synth melodies, along with some of Byrne's least
inspired songwriting, make| this album
nearly unbearable, especially compared
to some of their earlier masterpieces. At
least it gave Radiohead a decent band
name.

FILMSTRIPPED
VIOLENT   I-    \ .J§f|   "'
by James Gordon King II Illustrations by Sharon Ko
Two years ago, local musician
Andrew Huculiak set off for Norway to shoot and direct his first feature film, Violent Why shoot a film
in Norway? Why script a film almost
entirely in Norwegian? Let's not get
made its hometown debut this past
October as part of the "Must-See BC
series at VIFF, and won the awards for
Best Canadian Film and Best BC Film.
The film's story follows Dagny (Dag-
ny Backer Johnsen), a Norwegian
youth who leaves her small town in
the mountains to reunite with her
best friend Embla (Mari Sofie Andre-
assen) in the city The reunion goes
awry when she discovers that Embla is moving with her boyfriend to
Stockholm. Next we follow Dagny
through a timid set of misadventures
as she delves into questions of identity, memory, and life's ultimate meaning. If what I'm describing sounds
vague, that's because most of what
happens in Violent has little to do
with the story -':   M ■
13
FILM STRIPPED It doesn't help that Dagny is about
as passive a protagonist as they come.
In the film's most "dramatic" act,
Dagny's boss at a hardware store
(Tor Halvor Halvorsen) falls in love
with her. In each scene the drama
becomes, simply, that Dagny doesn't
love him back. This is not conflict in
the sense of being opposed to any of
Dagny's objectives; it is conflict in
the sense of it merely being inconvenient, and, well, uncomfortable. ||
Thankfully, what Violent lacks in
story,it makes up for in tone.      |§
The film is divided into five chapters, each dedicated as a farewell to a
loved one from Dagny's life. At first
this conceit seems merely stylistic,
but it's not long before the narrative
importance becomes apparent. An
abstract voiceover carries over the
beginning of four of the film's five
chapters. We're beset with images of
molecules splitting, water pulling itself out of the earth, and houses along
with people levitating; meanwhile
We Are the City's powerful electronic
score pounds mystery and urgency
into each frame. The sequences serve
as an indicator to something larger
at work, something perhaps taking
place beneath all the tired and ordi-
nary happenings at the film's surface.
The cryptic title, Violent, could be a
reference to the tension between the
banal and profound. Huculiak plays
on this variation with the dug-out intention of a pop musician playing E,
F, and G for an hour and a half: the
14 shots of landscape, the vague mentions of God or "great questions,"
the drawn-out silences bookending
scenes. It becomes a bit repetitive,
though never unpleasant, and Backer Johnsen's poised commitment to
the ordinary keeps the film as far as
possible from the existential vacuum
that it sometimes threatens to vanish

Part of me has to wonder how the
film would have played in English.
Would we have bought the blocky bits
of existential dialogue? Or does that
just come as a built-in feature to your
film being "foreign"? Another part
of me says it doesn't matter much.
The film was satisfying, replete with
enough curiosity and dumb, softhearted feeling to appease any cynic
— I mean, critic. |*^^^ShH|.    I    ||^

*This interview has been edited & condensed for print
|§|: Over several beers at the
eclectic Lido, Discorder chatted with
Dada Plan frontman Malcolm Bid-
die about mutual crushes on White
Fence, other musical' influences, and
the kids at shows these days who are
always on their phones. ift
IS THE NAME DADA PLAN RELATED
TO DADS, CELL PHONES, THE TYPE OF
ARTy OR ALL OF THE ABOVE? I KNOW
DADAISM REJECTS REASON AND WELCOMES NONSENSE. DO YOU THINK
THIS RELATES TO THE TYPE OF MUSIC
YOU MAKE OR IS IT JUST A CLEVER
NAME? .    %
Biddle: I think it's a bit of both. I don't
really think of us as a Dadaist band
but we wanted to play on the imagery of modern dilemma, so maybe
that can be represented in the idea of
a data plan — which is nonsense, it's
irrational in itself. It's more to do with
the idea of the fact that a data plan or
what it represents, in terms of modern society, is totally ridiculous. We
thought that was something we could
relate to, the modern predicament
through old art and just being able to
compare that idea to people walking
around at a bar on Instagram instead
of actually socializing     f ■ Jfe
INSTEAD OF PEOPLE JUST GOING
TO A SHOW AND ENJOYING THEMSELVES OR WATCHING THE BAND, YOU
LOOK OUT AND SEE A SEA OF WHITE
SQUARES LIGHTING UP EVERYBODY'S
FACES.
Biddle: It's almost as if most people's
mindset nowadays is: "I'm gonna
miss half the show so I can archive it."
17
DADA PLAN It's a weird social status thing. It's sort
of absurd, and we wanted to explore
that notion. Our music is definitely
inspired by Dadaism, but it's certainly
not abstract enough. It might be conceptual enough but not in a truly cut
and paste way. We get off on putting
the right thing in the wrong place, or
the wrong thing in the right place.
There's definitely a bit of that, but
yes, in many ways it's a clever name.
But the clever name relates to our
whole concept.Jl" ^ ;- :   J  ;' ■ :f|. ■*" '■
WHO ARE THE  CURRENT MEMBERS
OF DADA PLAN?      '     - ;l|r
Biddle: The current lineup is Matt
Krysko  on  synth,  Dave  Biddle  on
saxophone, Colin Cowan on bass, and
Justin Williams on congas. What's
exciting for us is that we're not just
a bunch of friends who wanna play
music together, but we're also really
passionate about ideas in general. We
want to work hard on good arrangements, new ideas, and songs. We want
to expand on how a live show could
be unique. The whole thing is genuinely fun for us because it's stuff we
actually care about.  ."' '-' ,'ijjP   "  ;:^
YOU'VE DEFINITELY TAKEN YOUR
STYLE AND CREATED A VERY DAZZLING DISCOGRAPHY WITH IT. FROM
SUN WIZARD TO CAPITOL 6 TO MALCOLM JACK SOLO. IT'S BEEN A VERY
THRILLING  AND  VARIED   EVOLUTION.
18
DADA PLAN HOW HAVE YOU APPROACHED FORMULATING YOUR NEW SOUND? WHERE
DOES THE ENDLESS STREAM OF MUSICAL STIMULATION COME FROM?
Biddle: With Dada Plan we decided
to do something very genuine that
we could get behind: where the art,
music, and lyrics are all related and
intertwined. The music and the words
actually play off each other, which is
something that I've never really done
before.
YOU TALK ABOUT LEONARD COHEN
AND SUICIDE BEING INFLUENCES,
BUT WHAT ARE YOUR OTHER INSPIRATIONS? THAT WHITE FENCE COVER  YOU   DO   ("BREATHE  AGAIN")   IS
QUITE A DELIGHT AND THERE'S ALSO
A JAZZY, AND SOMEWHAT UNPREDICTABLE COVER OF ACEYALONE'S
"HUMAN LANGUAGE" ON THE NEW
RECORD. CAN YOU TELL ME YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO COVERING SONGS?
Biddle: Tim Presley has been one
of my favorite modern writers for a
while now. I just enjoy the idea of covering a contemporary song; it happened a lot in the '60s. Everybody did
a cover of "Heart of Stone" back then,
they all had their own version. It was
cool to do a guy that was around,
who's as good as anything anyone's
writing nowadays. j|
19
DADA PLAN IT MIGHT BE CONCEPTUAL ENOUGH BUT
NOT IN A TRULY CUT AND PASTE WAY. WE
GET OFF ON PUTTING THE RIGHT THING
IN THE WRONG PLACE, OR THE WRONG
I THING IN THE RIGHT PLACE.
DOES DADA PLAN HAVE ANY PLANS
FOR THE NEAR FUTURE? A LOT OF
PEOPLE ARE Very THRILLED ABOUT
YOUR NEW RECORD. WILL YOU MAYBE
GO ON TOUR OR WILL YOU MOSTLY
PLAY LOCAL SHOWS IN THE MEANTIME?
Biddle: I think we'll be playing a lot
of Vancouver shows this winter. Some
island shows, maybe try to get down
to Seattle. Hopefully do some Europe
stuff come spring. They're pretty
vague plans but we have some ideas
about that. As for the records, it's a bit
of a limited run. We co-released the
record with Kingfisher Bluez and we
only have about 200 or so. Hopefully
there will be some kicking around at
some record store. We've got some
more recordings to work on over the
winter — we're just gonna keep it go-

!<>>rw__?>&w:&w&X£_9_m(H_wK^ "It's exciting being on the
ground floor of something. I put out
White Lung's first record when they
were playing in basements of East
Vancouver, at warehouse parties. Now
they're flying all over the world. It's
cool to be a part of that. I can say I
was there." :-;0.:    . • . ^||:' M: :Jj
These are the words of Ryan Dyck,
the man behind Vancouver label
Hockey Dad Records. There's something humbling about Dyck, genuine
and low-key, as we're tucked away in
the corner of JJ Bean. Gazing out into
the multi-coloured evening lights of
Commercial Drive, Dyck takes a sip
from his coffee and dives into the origins behind the label. '^fikiSs/'
"I was in a band called Fun 100.
We recorded an album but no one
wanted to put it out, so we were like
'Okay, let's just start a record label.'
My brother and I started it and set everything up.     J^,.;. ||- ..
"We named it after a friend of mine
who used to be in my band, who,
whenever we went out of town for a
show, would wear my brother's hockey jacket. He looked so much like a
hockey dad, someone who would be
up at 6 a.m. at the rink. That's why
[the label] is called Hockey Dad Records, in honour of him."
Since the initial Fun 100 album in
2006, Hockey Dad Records has done
releases   by   The   Bloggers,   White
Lung, Defektors, Dyck's own band B-
Lines, and The Courtneys. The sound
represented by the label ranges from
hardcore punk to happier, summery
garage pop, though each band has its
own, distinct sound. No release from
Hockey Dad Records feels redundant.
"If I like a band and nobody else
wants to put out their stuff, I'll put it
out. When I get really excited about
a band, I like to be a part of it," says
Dyck. "Have something to do, you
know? More than just going to shows;
more than just going to shows and
getting drunk."
They're simple words, but there's
something to be said about that simplicity. Dyck's passion for the project
is evident. Moreover, for a label that
chooses only a handful of bands to release, Hockey Dad Records has seen
some remarkable success come out
of the selected few; One of the label's
biggest success stories is the 2013 self-
titled release by Vancouver trio The
Courtneys. ft'     ||f m '*'■'■     'WfM
"I first saw The Courtneys really
early on," recalls Dyck, "it was maybe
their third show. I liked them right
away so I introduced myself and
hung out with them a bunch, and
when they finished their record they
asked me to put it out. They had put
out a tape on Green Burrito, which I
really liked. I figured it would be a
pretty safe bet." 4
Since their debut release, The Courtneys have enjoyed immense national
and international success. "[The LP]
HOMEGROWN LABELS
23 ■
is definitely the biggest selling record I've ever put out," says Dyck, "I
pressed it three times; it's been put
out in Australia and Japan as well."
The Courtneys aren't the only band
from Hockey Dad Records to taste
enormous success: Dyck also released
White Lung's debut seven-inch Local Garbage back in 2007. The group
is now signed to Domino and just
wrapped up a world tour        M
Thinking about these bands on world
tours and looking at the guy who's sitting in front of me now, I can't help
but wonder what all of this means for
the label, or more precisely, for Dyck
himself : ■ ■■'"■:'#' '■ ■'■ US
"It means I'm not losing money on
the record, which is nice," says Dyck,
with a laugh. "It's nice to know that
I can work on stuff with them and
the records are going to be heard by
more than just the two or three hundred people in Vancouver. It's kind of
intoxicating." |v   /■. :mJXC.l^: ;Pi-.
While White Lung is no longer in
Dyck's hands, The Courtneys still are.
TJieir new seven-inch Mars Attacks,
which features local rapper Young
Braised, will be released on November 4. '•■ V\;J|.     ,: ■■'•-■'.'  .'
Our conversation inevitability gears
towards the Vancouver music scene,
from the rise of electronic music to
the fate of punk. • ■ '"f^|':  -: ■"■MP! •
"Oh yes," says Dyck, in response to if
he likes electronic music. "There's so
much you can do with so little. Punk
bands are, in a way, an antiquated
idea: four people playing amplified
instruments. It doesn't really make
sense in a city that doesn't really have
any room, and where space is
expensive... But I like punk."       «
"There's a certain sentimentality to
it," I say.    ':."■;■'.,■■■;'--r ';'■;■ ■■.';;■'.'^ J|
"I guess I grew up with it It kind of
means something to me."

24
HOMEGROWN LABELS
I It's well into the evening and our
voices sometimes get faded out by
the noise from the surrounding traffic. Watching Dyck's eyes as he talks
about punk and thinking again about
the basis of his answers, I can't help
but imagine that Hockey Dad Records, in a way, embodies Vancouver's
music scene in the purest sense, with
its heart, its soul.
The coffees run out Before we finish, I ask Dyck what he envisions for
the future of Hockey Dad Records. He
stops to think, though not for long.
"I guess I'd like to keep putting out
records," Dyck says. "It would be
great if I could do the next Courtneys
LP, find a couple of new bands I can
get excited about" He pauses. "I don't
know. I never plan ahead. I'd like to
keep doing this. The more you do, the
easier it gets."
Join Hockey Dad Records, The Courtneys, and Young Braised for the upcoming Mars Attacks release party on November 7 at the Fox Cabaret.

Wk -M Colin Cowan is a sonic astronaut Outwardly he's incredibly
cool and collected, but when Cowan
speaks, it's clear his mind is always
ticking with a puckish spark; when
asked about his music, Cowan gives
you a story on how he learned lifelong happiness, p
A performer at heart, Cowan doesn't
know how he balances his n other
bands — or how he can relax when
always focussing on artistic projects
— but knows that he is in lust with
music. He's just a busy guy who loves
what he does. "I've had a lot of long
days ... I'm happy I feel tired from
what I do.
Wl think I always have enough time.
I know how I get distracted, and I
watch how other people get distract
ed, and therefore distractions equal
time. If you take out distractions,
then wouldn't you get more time?"
For Cowan, the creative process of
his second album, Eye of Winter, was
relaxing. He was continuously "drawing a nice tone bath ... to steam out
[his] troubles."
Cowan's two solo albums, 2013's Fall
Paths and this year's Eye of Winter,
gave him a much-needed breather
from the harshness of the world and
are part of a whimsical musical project Cowan's concept is to release one
album a year — each representing a
season — over four years. With this
month's release, he's officially halfway.
"It allows me to ruminate," says
Cowan, on what the process has been

like so far. "Since I've started doing it,
I'm seeing the way I'm looking at the
world... I've been monitoring myself
and watching how I'm taking in the
world and I've been noticing myself
going through this seasonal mental
state. It's a way to let go."
Eye of Winter, available November
28, starts off sweetly with nostalgic,
cosmic folk Lead single -*!_£_
to Rockefeller" might guide you into
thinking the album is a collective of
love songs, but there's a lingering
darkness to it. By the time the album's retro warmth wears out at the
end, you have a distinct feeling of being left out in the cold.
Cowan has an appreciation for improvisation. "It looks orchestrated,
but it's so spontaneous, and it works,
depending on who's driving the bus
... Even when you're playing music
where you know every note you're
going to play, it's all about context. It
could be this dirty, old punk song you
like to play, it should always sound a
little different. You should be trying
to play it, but not trying to nail it" Organised spontaneity        ft   fl
Because of how self-conscious and
afraid of making mistakes Cowan was
when he was a younger musician, he
values those same musician's ability to take rjiusic in stride. "I needed
someone a little cooler than me to explain what mistakes and self-expres
sions were.
The Elastic Stars, Cowan's band,
were less involved with the recording
of Eye of Winter. Although Cowan
recorded most of the album with no
band members except for drummer
Ben Brown, Cowan & the Elastic Stars
would love to be a touring road show
COLIN COWAN

side projects.        | .    ■  :;|r '    ■ '||
"They're called the Elastic Stars because I can't lock them down very
easily," Cowan jokes, but the Elastic
Stars will play with him if they ever
tour. "It's a family band. We're all like
a bunch of little kids when we play
together, we just have so much fun."
Regardless if he has the Elastic Stars
by his side or if he's shooting solo,
Colin Cowan is a modern troubadour
with a passion for performance and a
lust for music. Eye of Winter is what
winter winds would sound like — if
they could play quirky psychedelic
folk rock.   ■   ,;||»:'
Check out the Eye of Winter free release
party happening on November 28 at The
Lido. After that, the album will be available on iTunes and vinyl.

THE SONICS / THEE MANIPULATORS /
THE FLINTETTES
OCTOBER 2 @ RICKSHAW THEATRE
"The crowd swelled to the front of
the room as The Sonics lay hold of
the stage. The 1960s punk legends
opened with 'Cinderella' as the room
dinned with voices of all ages. The
band, which included three original
members, continued with an array
of their solid singles from Boom and
Here Are The Sonics, such as 'Have
Love, Will Travel,' 'He's Waitin," 'Psycho,' and 'Boss Hoss' amid songs from
their most recent album — recorded
with Detroit producer Jim Diamond
— that were as sonically muscular as
their original proto-punk riffs from
the '60s. They sneakily introduced a
song from their new album, but instead went into a gnarly rendition of
the classic 'Louie Louie.'
I witnessed the music inspire popular dance moves of the '6o's such as
'The Temptation Walk' and even 'The
Mashed Potato' for a moment To fully inform me that The Sonics had not
lost any of their appeal or apparent
status as musical dreamboats, a bra
was hurled on stage, which was then
twirled on a drumstick. The owner of
the bra was then told to report back
stage after the show to receive a stern
talking to by all band members."

"The biggest surprise of the night
was seeing Amber Webber of Black

filling a hole the size of Neko Case,
who was allegedly denied entry at the

Bejar on 'Born of a Sound' and filled
in on harmonies for half the night's
performance. Also conspicuously absent was drummer Kurt Dahle, who
played his last show with the New
Pornographers at Rifflandia. The replacement drummer covered the
parts with precision, but lacked the
flair, backing harmonies, and saucy,
interrupting tongue of Dahle.
The New Pornographers have air

THURSTON MOORE / SEBADOH        S
OCTOBER 3 @ BILTMORE CABARET
"Still reeling from the more than
a decade of intermittent Sebadoh reunion tours before producing 20i3's
Defend Yourself, Lou Barlow and Jason Lowenstein nevertheless proved
their copacetic relationship at the
Biltmore on October 3. Sharing front-
man duties, Lowenstein was the mild-
mannered antithesis to Barlow's long-
winded and anecdotal stage banter.
The near-90 minute set of swirling
college rock focused largely on their
recent material, including a raucous
rendition of "My Drugs," off 2012's
Secret EP, and was the perfect primer
for the pioneer of college rock himself, Thurston Moore.
Joined on this night by Deb Googe
(of My Bloody Valentine) on bass and
with long-time Sonic Youth drummer Steve Shelley behind the kit, the
limbering, masterful guitarist was
cramped between the Biltmore's low
ceiling and its sardine-can crowd.
Nevertheless, Moore was determined
to stick with the unique brand of
whirling, hypnotic guitarwork that
only he can pull off with perfection."

303 COLUMBIA ''. A.
m Kristian Voveris II Illustrations by Alison Sadler II
Photography by Amanda Jean Cooper
Challenging the worn out
"No Fun City" moniker, Vancouver
has seen a number of popular venues
sprout up in 2014. The Fox Cabaret
emerged from a bold repurposing of
the last adult film theatre in Vancouver while the Hindenburg and the
Waldorf marked the re-opening of
formerly celebrated watering holes.
Adding to this list is 303 Columbia,
brijiging a fresh perspective and
some clean new walls to the Columbia Hotel's bar with a colourful history "..... .      .'-"89
What once, in a blue moon, used to be
a hotspot for DIY punk shows — the
kind of place that served moonshine
in bottles of Smirnoff to hip youth,
too complacent to tell the difference
1 the space has changed numerous
hands over the years before landing
its current curators. With a five-year
contract for the space and a set of
good ideas, 303 Columbia is poised to
become a fixture in the city for years
to come. To Jason Sulyma, one of the
partners behind 303 Columbia, the
space is meant to fill a missing niche
in Vancouver'^ nightlife.
"The idea was not to join the club
culture in the city," explains Sulyma,
"but build a legal version of an illegal after-hours venue and bring that
kind of energy and those players over
here." 303 Columbia's liquor licence
— extending 'til 2 a.m on weekdays
and 3 a.m on weekends — is key to attracting music and events in the city's
east side that you would be hard-
pressed to find in a legal venue.
More than creating another glorified
liquor hole, Sulyma sees the space as
taking a firm stand against commercial club culture and finding a precarious balance between commerce
VENEWS
39 and culture. Open since August, 303
Columbia has already seen a variety
of programming ranging beyond
its successful club nights. "After 11
o'clock, yes, dancing pays the bills,
but we also have bands, photo shows,
comedy, film installations, fashion
sales, and everything in-between."
It helps that most of the venue's
curatorial team come with programming experience — Sulyma himself
was a co-founder of the now defunct
Oho Festival — meaning they're the
perfect candidates to handle 303's
eclectic lineup. Sulyma explains, "We
all have a festival background, so instead of working all year for something that lasts four days, we're just
working everyday to make the whole
year more interesting"       j
With its white walls and minimally
embellished interior, first impressions of the venue bring to mind the
spaces of DIY shows and after-hours
parties at galleries from which the
venue draws its inspiration. The idea,
according to Sulyma, was to give artists and programmers a kind of blank
canvas that could accommodate the
variety in programming tha^ Columbia tries to accomplish.       I
More than just providing a space,
Sulyma has a strong agenda of supporting local artists materially, and
aims to keep the focus of the venue
on Vancouver's own music and arts
scene. "We don't want to book an
out of town DJ or promoter and give
them thousands of dollars when art
ists who live, shop, and work locally
could be making that money."
Despite the recent explosion in Vancouver's venues and cultural programming, there are still many obstacles to overcome — specifically,
urban planning and legislation are
two areas where Sulyma sees room for
improvement. "The whole city could
be more vibrant if it was rezoned, so
everybody at the Biltmore, Fortune,
and Electric Owl could stay out until
2 to 3 a.m., and that we wouldn't be
forced to go home early to watch terrible television, or to go to an illegal
venue where no legal taxable profit is
made from it." mr
With movers and makers like Sulyma, there seems to be good cause for
optimism about the future of cultural
life in Vancouver. Sure, the threat of
culturally-oblivious developers and
condescending urban planning will
be ruining the fun for years to come,
but that shouldn't blind us from seeing the things already happening out
there. As Sulyma remarks, "If you still
believe in the myth of 'No Fun City,'
then you're probably just as dated as
that term."

POWER CHORD 1
By Rohit Joseph II Illustrations by Gina
McKay II Photography by
Konstantin Prodanovic
IE On thje air since 1985, Power
Chord is Vancouver's longest-running heavy metal radio show. Co-
founded by Gerald "Rattlehead" and
"Metal Ron," the show has undergone
a metamorphosis in recent years,
shifting the format and adding four
new hosts: Andy "Grotesque," Coleman Ingram, Erik Wessel, and Serena
Navarro. Discorder recently caught
up with Ingram and Navarro to learn
about how the five-host dynamic
works and their thoughts on the state
of Vancouver's metal scene.    ''%.'
HOW DID YOU GET YOUR START ON
POWER CHORD?
M$zM 1-_iPst-1^ _j_*£*t    f
Ingram: It was a result of me hanging around at CiTR, doing a bit of
volunteering and fill-in shows. Robin,
CiTR's programming director, sent
me an email saying that Power Chord
needed a new host. I decided "Yeah,
111 give it a shot!" I've been a metal
fan for most of my music listening
life so it was natural for me. I did one
or two shows then Andy and Ron were
like "Cool, we like what you're doing,
carry on." This summer, I had to go
away to work a couple of months so
we needed another host. At the same
time, Navarro had moved here from
'Calgary*,,
Navarro: A patient from the pharmacy that I work at said to me, "You
keep wearing metal shirts, you should
probably listen to this show 'cause
you're gonna like it." So I started listening to it, and then I found out they
needed hosts and I thought "Sign me
up, I like metal!" ' _   Jj    If,      :-Jb'
HOW DO YOU GUYS COORDINATE A
SHOW WITH FIVE HOSTS?
Ingram: Among the five hosts involved right now, we all play whatever we want within the spectrum of
heavy metal. Ron plays a lot more
older stuff. He's been a metal fan since
1985, so his tastes skew towards the
more Classic spectrum. Serena, Erik,
43
ON THE AIR and I listen to a ton of new music. It's
cool because Power Chord'has gotten
a serious facelift just within the last
year or so. It's practically a new show.
You could put five metalheads in the
same room, and they won't agree on
a single band.
Navarro: I listen to some of Ron's
shows and I'm like, "I have no idea
what those last 10 bands were" or "I've
heard of a couple of them but I'm not
afan."    .   .     1/ .      •    ; '•     . JH
Ingram: We try to appeal to as many
subgenres as we possibly can and
that's why it's great having more
hosts involved.
WHEN DID YOU DISCOVER YOUR PASSION FOR HEAVY METAL MUSIC?
Navarro: Well, I liked Korn when I
was 11...
Ingram: That counts! The first time
I ever heard Korn in grade six, I remember thinking, "This is the heaviest thing I've ever heard!"
Navarro: I just remember buying
the album right away and thinking "I
don't know what this is, I don't know
why I like it, but I'm gonna listen to
it!"   . .,|: ' '.$"■'
Ingram: Smashing Pumpkins is not a
metal band but they had heavy ele-
ON THE AIR ments I really liked. My introduction
to metal was Loadby Metallica. When
I was in grade four, I saved up my allowance and bought a Metallica box
set for $100, which was a lot of money
when I was 10! f| ^;|§
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE
VANCOUVER'S METAL SCENE?       ;I:;."V
Ingram: I'd say it's quite tight-knit
and very diverse. A lot of bands share
members and play together. Everyone supports each other. There isn't
a specific "Vancouver sound" but it's
cool to see bands from Vancouver
make it to an international stage,
like BAPTISTS. It's a thriving scene
and it's definitely got the attention of
the international underground metal
world.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE NAME FOR
A HEAVY METAL BAND?
WHAT'S IN STORE FOR POWER
CHORD?  ";'      -    jMJ      .    H    .
Ingram: We're pretty fresh. There's
been a passing of the torch happening here. Ron and Andy are still involved, but only to whatever degree
they want to be included.       ;-
Navarro: I feel like we have a lot
of passion as young folk. We're excited to have more promotion and to
build a community a little bit more
through promoting shows and the
metal scene here in Vancouver §
Ingram: There are a lot of people who
would be really into our show and the
music we play, that don't even know
it exists. We are going to get some
stickers made and start handing them
out at shows, design some shirts, and
have more bands come into the studio to talk about their shows or tours.
Navarro: Dead Jesus? That's the only
thing I can think of |§|| f«
Ingram: I was going to say Anal Cunt.
Navarro: Oh yeah that's a good one!
Ingram: That's just the most offensive one. Honestly, Black Sabbath is
a fucking amazing band name. Just
hearing that name gives you a pretty
good idea of what it's going to sound
like. It's an immediate punch-you-
in-the-face, make-you-pay-attention
kind of name. H
If you'd like to indulge your craving for
heavy metal, tune in to Power Chord every Saturday from 1 pm. to 3 pm. on
CiTR 1019FM or citr.ca t   «

ON THE AIR IN GOOD HUMOR
NIMA GHOLAMIPOUR
by Evan Brow II Illustrations by Karl
Ventura
p In the kindest way possible,
Nima Gholamipour is a comedy
snake. He's physical and active: jump-
ing, divingf swerving, locking into
position to fully commit to his characters. His body moves like it's pos-
sessed by ghosts of vaudeville past
With these traits, it helps that Gholamipour is an improviser and a comedian around Vancouver/For someone
so visually comedic, improv is the
perfect creative conduit.
It wasn't until grade 10 that Gholamipour became introduced to improv:
already in the school breakdancing
club at Burnaby Mountain Secondary, one of Gholamipour's media arts
videos caught the eye of the improv
team and he was instantly headhunted for his comedy. They asked him to
audition and he made the team — but
* •
it came at a cost
"When I [auditioned] and I got in,
that ran the same night as break-
dance club," explains Gholamipour,
"I had to pick improv but that opened
a lot of doors for me."
In conjunction with his career in
animation,! Gholamipour I has t always made time for performance.
His signature improv trio is Lorax
Improv alongside Tim Carlson and
Ben Gorodetsky. (Gholamipour knew
Gorodetsky from Burnaby Mountain Secondary and Carlson from
IMPROVCAMP, a week-long improv
summer camp for highschool students;.) The group grew out of this
bond and, as Gholamipour says, "just
happened." p
"We were just hanging out a bunch
at the time," says Gholamipour.
"That's usually what happens. You're
just hanging out and then you slowly
just, you know, make a group. And
then you get more committed and
serious."
Much like the group itself, even the
name "Lorax Improv" doesn't seem to
have any definitive foundation.
"The name itself just stuck out to
us," says Gholamipour. "It's hard-hit-
46
IN GOOD HUMOUR ting and it's got a flow at the beginning. And then it ends on a hard note.
Yeah, we just kind of liked the name.
It's got nothing to do with Dr. Seuss
at all. People find that weird. Like,
You're not affiliated with Dr. Seuss?!'"
For the future of Lorax Improv,
Gholamipour just wants to explore
and expand, mainly with traveling.
"We've done the Canadian tour and
we'd like to extend our legs into our
neighbours in the US," says Gholami-
47
IN GOOD HUMOR pour. "We did Detroit recently and
that was fun. I think we'd like to get
money from a fringe tour that can
pay for festivals in the States."
Besides improv, Gholamipour loves
character comedy. He frequently performs at Rapp Battlez, a comedic rap
battle show, and the Hero Show, a solo
sketch show. For Rapp Battlez, Gholamipour has performed as the IKEA
Monkey, Andre the Giant, Salvador
Dali, Mentos, Milk, Louis Armstrong,
A kid stuck in a locker, and Babar; for
the Hero Show, he has performed as
porn agent Stiff Biff, Nima Gholami-
pour's Transit Diaries, and Pizza Trish.
"I think Pizza Trish is my most popular character," says Gholamipour. "It's
a woman that works at a pizza hotline
and whenever she answers the phone
she says, 'Hi, 'dis is Pizza Trish. What's
yo' dish?' And she had written answers
to things people ask, like *What's that
little white plastic thing in the middle
of the pizza?' and she'd be like, 'That's
the table for the mice after yo' done
with tha' crumbs!'" . -f|'
And while Gholamipour has excelled in performance, he maintains
an interest in a show of his own —
he recently teamed up with Ember
Konopaki to devise their own comedy creation, sponsored by The Hero
Show and Cam MacLeod. "We're going to produce this sister
show of the Hero Show called SIDEKICKS. We realized in Vancouver
that there's not a lot of sketch shows
so we were like, 'Well what's a way
to get people working together doing sketch regularly?' And we love
the conventions of other shows in
Vancouver. Like 10 Speed has a very
strong format to that show. Sometimes groups are made for that show
So SIDEKICKS would be duos, strictly duos, and we'd have like eight acts.
We'd either have already existing
duos for sketch or just pair up random people together and get them to
write a five-minute sketch."

__-^ F0t\;%1
m, p*_*^
Whatever Gholamipour is doing, expect physicality and wild creativity.
Expect something organic and free-
flowing. But perhaps most importantly, don't expect anything, because
he'll probably surprise you. v->;>
If you want to catch Gholamipour's
comedy, he performs most Sundays with
Instant Theatre at the Havana Restaurant
and his duo sketch show SIDEKICKS debuts at the China Cloud Theatre on November 27 at 9 p.m. I
APOSTROHIC
FLA I    |    ;
(Romeda)
The knee-jerk comparison here is
undoubtedly Boards of Canada, but
FLA, over its 25-minute length, rarely
dips into the sinister realms that BoC
became known for. Instead, the atmosphere is a tension wire of nostalgia,
temperance, and melancholia, best ex-
emplified in the EP's strongest track,
"Scrch." "Scrch" is given more space
to hatch and develop than anything
else on FLA. The track also showcases
some ultra-dreamy guitar that, once
you're listening for it, is all over the
album.
There's something about anonymity in electronic music that gets me
excited. One would be hard-pressed to
argue that the name — or names —
behind a project didn't influence their
own reception of that music, especially if those names belong to famous
people, stalwart musicians, or friends.
When a pseudonym is attached to the
craft, however, with little emphasis
on who stands behind it, it feels more
about the music being produced and
less about the person producing it.
Enter Apostrophic, a one-man electronic producer whose name you
won't find with a simple Google
search. He has a couple of EPs under
his belt, including this latest, FLA, released on the digital label Romeda.
If "Scrch" is the album's finest track,
then the closer, "Sunset," is a close
runner-up. The track's melange of
subdued, reverb-heavy beats and soft-
focus synth lines are highly addictive.
The final minutes pare everything
back to little more than a delightful post-rock riff that wouldn't have
sounded out of place on an early Explosions in the Sky album, although,
ultimately it comes and goes in little more than a blink. FLA not only
leaves one thirsty for more but also
leaves you wondering what marvels
Apostrophic could conjure up without
any beats at all. Here's to hoping he's

UNDER REVIEW HIGH ENDS  ■:: ^ |§  ||J.      '&$$&
. super class   -pm' ' J |T
(Dine Alone) _ :-j$jjS$'.-
As the lead singer of Yukon Blonde,
Jeffrey Innes has plenty of experience writing catchy pop-rock songs.
In his new solo project, High Ends,
Innes flaunts his skills and brings
listeners yet another album that has
the makings of a commercial success. While the majority of his lyrics
lack depth, High Ends' melodies are
so uplifting, you can't help but shake
your head and dance shamelessly.
Despite this immediate appeal, Super
Class employs stylization risks and
sporadic tempo changes, making it
most rewarding to the deeply attentive listener.
Super Class makes no mistake in its
track order. The album is arranged
so that each song follows suit in accordance with the previous song. The
first few tracks on the album are ultra-catchy, and you can easily imagine them being played on the radio.
As the album progresses, the songs
become increasingly risqu£. Super
Class offers more to the immersed
listener, as Innes' lyrics grow denser
and his melodies more complex.    |S|
One of the first songs on the album, "The Weight" rings Super Class
in. It's a simple, yet delightful song
that sticks in your head no matter
how hard you try to resist it. "River
Cruise," the sixth song of nine on Super Class, is the most adventurous
undertaking. An instrumental track,
"River Cruise" is created as a psychedelic and futuristic piece of art. The
song itself flows like a river — jagged, unpredictable, and rich with textured harmonies. 11^
While Super Classlends itself well to
the cheerful and outgoing rhythms
of Yukon Blonde, High Ends takes
more risks in his musicality. Electro-
pop and retro vibes define Super
Class and organized chaos creates
a distinctive rhythmic tone. Yukon
Blonde fans are sure to be pleased
by this creative freshman album by
High Ends. —Alex Lenz S

(LaTiDa)       /■■^■^ 'W
The Flintettes' debut EP, Open Your
Eyes, is comprised of three energetic
tracks. The songs juxtapose lead singer Michael Flintoff s punk vocals with
the blissful harmonies of Marissa
Johnson and CC Rose, resulting in a
unique blend of pop, punk, and rock,
reminiscent of a '60s garage band.
Charming listeners by combining efforts, the trio's chemistry is apparent
throughout the release. "Open Your
Eyes" asks the eternal question, "Is it
love or infatuation?" When it comes
to this release, listeners may find that
the free-flowing album is the perfect
union of both. Each melody is infused
with a sweet synergy of vocals, guitars, and drums. This synergy allows
the Flintettes' sound to be both unified and distinct. M
The album's second track, "What
Was One," features punchy lines like,
"What was one is now two / You've
torn it into two" against a frenetic
guitar riff. The last track, "It Could've
Been Love" is an upbeat pop tune
For an album that is all about romance and relationships, it also manages to be hard-hitting and lively. An
example of this is the mellifluous interaction between Johnson and Rose's
light, fluttery harmonies, and Flint-
off s hard, raw vocals. ; :|| •'.
Listeners will connect with the re-
latable lyrics, pop beats, and general
authenticity of the Flintettes. Overall,
the three tracks blend together into
one catchy, upbeat release that distinguishes the flintettes as an inventive
local band to watch out for. —Hailey

DEAD SOFT ' ''#

(Kingfisher Bluez) fl
A debut album is like a snapshot of
a band. It gives as complete a picture
as listener can find of a new group's
sound and sets the stage for future
releases. Dead Soft's first full length
on the Kingfisher Bluez label succeeds for the simplest of reasons:
52
UNDER REVIEW ilM
the songs are well-crafted, loud, and
memorable. Vancouver is not without its share of grunge revival bands
(War Baby, Weed, Nu Sensae) but
Dead Soft set themselves apart with a
refreshing sonic blend of alternative
rock styles. Switching between shoegaze, fuzz, and power pop as quickly
as one triggers a distortion pedal, this
three piece has a lot to offer as a song-
writing unit.      jSp.
The initial trio of songs on the record
showcase different aspects of Dead
Soft's musical character while hooking listeners into the album. "Phase"
rocks a garage surf groove, "Everything" is a fuzz barnburner punctuated by an unforgettable guitar lead,
and "Never Forever" pummels the
listener with a crushing chorus sandwiched between sensitive, restrained
verses.
Recorded and mixed at the Noise
Floor by Jordan Koop, the production
on Dead Soft comes off as exceptionally organic. The album sounds like
the band is literally playing a private
concert in your bedroom. Songs like
"Death Is At My Door" and "Come
Back" sound massive, but definitely
man made. Nathaniel Epp is the perfect vocal match for the band's sound
because he's able to emit a strained
howl and confidently carry a melody.
All things considered, Dead Soft's debut is catchy, emotional, and refreshing. —James Olson
BEYOND THE; BLACK RAINBOW
(Jagjaguwar)
Two major things are intensely bizarre about Sinoia Caves' excellent
soundtrack to the Vancouver art film,
Beyond the Black Rainbow, the paranoid 1980s synthesizer dreamworld
that artist Jeremy Schmidt has created, and that it's taken four years for
the score to be released separately
from the film.
The film, which ostensibly follows a
test subject's imprisonment and eventual escape from a disturbingly sterile
research institute, is an art-film wet
dream of psychedelic visual effects,
almost completely indecipherable
set-pieces and the twisted vision of an
'80s universe sadly lacking in Miami
Vice-runoff pop culture. Schmidt's
soundtrack, itself an homage to modular and analog synthesizers, captures, or rather sets, the tone of the
film perfectly. Make no mistake, this
is no Daft Punk-inspired dance music: instead, the rapidly arpeggiating
leads, summon claustrophobia and
shallow breathing. The score is the
teirifying white walls of the Arboria
UNDER REVIEW
53 Institute itself, entrapping both the
listener and the viewer in a decidedly
uncomfortable dreamland. |||
While the Beyond the Black Rainbow OST lacks the dissonance and
noise of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis'
take on The Road, it's almost more
insidious because it's played within
the confines of a keyboard. Heavy,
pulsating bass triggers are the proverbial heartbeat tying most of the
seven tracks together, and despite the
OST moniker, the album is exceptionally listenable as a stand-alone
piece. While other scores tend to fall
flat when pulled from their dramatic
source material (eg. Daft Punk's Tron
Legacy), because so much of the drama of the film evolves alongside the
haunting background music, Sinoia
Caves has not only produced an outstanding soundtrack but an outstanding record as well. —Fraser Dobbs
ARBUTUS       ;|j| , :§-   ;
BEDROOM SAFARI
(Self-Released) .J|<
2013 was a year of grandeur. Across
genres, artists and musicians pulled
out all the cacophonous samples,
snares, and bass they could get their
hands on. 2014 has taken note of this
and gone in the opposite direction:
minimalist, light, atmospheric. Arbutus' new release, Bedroom Safari,
makes use of the barebones bedroom,
jazzy synth aesthetic, but doesn't
make any great leaps to extend the
genre. All the necessary elements are
there, but as a whole the album sits
comfortably on genre strengths without a secure establishment of originality. It's well-executed, but forgettable.   ■    ' .   ||"; .
The name Bedroom Safari lends itself easily to this project, combining
aesthetics of intimate bedroom spacing with the expansive rumblings of
the jungle. The echoing quality of the
harmonies through the beginning of
the album creates a sonic environment that is at once small and big,
without lyrics or clear transitions. In
fact, the entire album is devoid of the
human voice, except for the closing
track "Free Radicals," which incorporates a choral drone.
The strength of this project comes
from its cohesion — the various tonal
layers of synths, drums, and strings
complement each other and create a consistent ambiance while still
stretching into higher energy tracks
like "Tree Well" and "Canadian Synesthesia." Length is also an asset on this
album. No song exceeds four-and-a-
half minutes, but that's just as well;
with such a honed sense of sound,
54
UNDER REVIEW there is not an overwhelming degree
of variety, meaning that some songs
lag towards the end. Not a bad album
overall, Bedroom Safari is a summer
project that transitions nicely into a
rainier season. —Amelia Williams

MOONDANCE
(i080p) :
Since releasing their first tape just
over a year ago, io8op Collection has
proven to be a adventurous trying
ground for experimental bedroom
producers from this city, as well as
other parts of our hyperconnected
world. From the more recent side of
the the label's steady stream of releases comes Moondance, a debut from
an Ottawa-based producer, choosing
to preserve some sense of anonymity
under the moniker Riohv.
"Jus Relax," is a dreamy piano chord
driven jam. It provides a bit of introduction to the tape and together with
its apt title, is a helpful suggestion to
listeners. From there, Riohv dives into
murky clouds of lo-fi ambience, guid
ing listeners into highly introspective
places with the groove of rubbery 303
basslines.  "        »"''■'■■■•'
While the canonical sounds of drum
machines and acid basslines place it
within a familiar context in the world
of electronic music, there is a playfulness with which the tracks on Moon-
dance unfold. This playfulness sets
the album apart while giving it coherence. Loosely structured, yet snappy
percussion leads a dazzle of moody,
delay-drenched chords on f "Kick-
flip 50-50," while the following track
throws you into the grip of a tight
and catchy groove. Throughout the
album, RiohVs strength is his ability
to craft engaging atmospheres with
rich textures and bleeding colours
while balancing a sense of space with
a mildly claustrophobic lo-fi touch.
Moondance is an attempt to revisit
the spirit of euphoria from the acid
house movement that sparked and
smoldered in the UK at the end of the
v8os. However, the frantic high tempo
rave anthems here, are reimagined in
a slowed, subdued, and very melancholic light. The Moondance experience is less like losing all inhibitions
and dancing till daybreak in a cold
field, and more like digging pensively through the movement's history
in 36op quality from the coziness of
home.—Kristian Voveris
UNDER REVIEW
55 T like to be a bit tongue-in-
cheek as opposed to taking a direct
approach. To look at something from
the other side — there are some lyrics
which are overtly rape sympathizing
— these lyrics themselves come off
as sympathizing with rapists, but you
embody it. Somebody is more likely
to see it from that angle and be like
Wbah, woah. That's so fucking absurd, why would you say that?'"
Ashlee Luk, guitarist and co-lyricist
of Vancouver-based Lie, possesses
the calm intensity one would expect
from a member of the post-punk outfit — not because the band plays calm
music, but because it reveals sensed
precision heard in their music.
Emulating the most degenerate and
perverse is a technique used with
great effectiveness by Steve Albini.
Brittany West, Lie's lead singer, bassist, and co-lyricist, mentions him as
soon as Luk starts talking about the
band's lyrical experimentation. Like
Albini's, Li£'s songwriting is dark and
shouted out over tense, caustic guitar
riffs. 'You embody a character, you
sing about these topics, but you obviously don't believe them or follow
them. You're making a commentary
on it." X^^: ■;'       ■ $y   .■ '
Luk elaborates, reciting lyrics from
an upcoming Li£ track, "Sorry," without pitch or expression: "That girl was
sick / that girl was weak / you had to
get her on her knees." The song will
be released mid-December on their
newest album Consent, through Austin-based That's Cool Records.
Since coming together in 2012, Lie
have released a self-titled cassette,
a demo, and one full-length album,
Master. Their sound is cold, gothic
punk with j forlorn vocals (ranging
from acerbic screams/melancholic
shouting) and heavy drumming —
though the band describes their upcoming album as markedly different
from their other recorded stuff. According to Luk, fans can expect it to
be, "faster, [and] more aggressive."
Aside from the releases, Lie have
also toured extensively, from across
Europe to up and down the Wspt
Coast. (They even crack a joke about
an upcoming Japanese tour.) As out
of reach as it may seem, Lie shows no
sign of slowing down.        1|  J|
"I love every experience and seeing
every colour," says Lie's drummer,
Kati J, who inconspicuously sips wine
from a thermus for much of the interview. They describe breaking up
a drunken pit fight while opening
for Perfect Pussy in a storage space
in Arizona; they recount renting out
studio space and spending a day silk-
screening while on tour in France;
they talk SXSW and bands like Transylvania, Diat, Puff!, and Bleak Seven,
who came out and supported them
while they were touring Europe this
summer.

v„ ,.*»>**»**""" While Li6's lyrics offer commentary,
the band tries not to be overtly political in their lyrics, finding that politically-charged writing limits interpretation on the part of the listener. Luk
explains: "Going forward, I'm working on trying to write and connect it
with art a little bit more rather than
it being as personal. More surrealist."
There's a strong aesthetic aspect to
Lie, a distinct visual translation that
accompanies their music. All three
members played a part in designing
the artwork for their upcoming album and there's a slick music video
for one of the album's single^ "Casual Embrace," featuring a live performance with distorted porn footage
projected by a limelight behind them.
They have another video in the works
as well. "We want the imagery to be
shocking to an extent. Both Ashlee
and I really appreciate the look of a
naked body, so we use that a lot," says
West. . .       fp.      :^C
Being a female-fronted band tends
to be the master identifier/status for
many female bands. "More than a few
times we've been put on bills that aire
like 'all-female bills' but we're playing with a bunch of poppy bands,"
says Luk. "That's one of my big irritancies: I don't like the term 'female
punk band.'"    '. ■. '.. |l§||.•   jg|
"It's homogenizing," adds West. The
band's frustrations aren't towards
the organizers that put on these kind
of shows, but generalizing genres,
styles, and content of female-fronted
punk bands. :j£ .
LIE "GOING FORWARD, I'M WORKING ON TRYING TO
WRITE AND CONNECT IT WITH ART A LITTLE BIT
MORE RATHER THAN IT BEING AS PERSONAL.
MORE SURREALIST."
" The paradox to the label's whitewashing is that the kind of spaces
that typically promote female-fronted punk bands tend to be safe, collectivized spaces. Here's an example:
Lie talks fboit a recurring situation
they've encountered on tour where
a guitarist might come up to them
after their set and explain how they
wish they could be in a band but don't
know anybody, and then they'll have
a drummer come up to them some
time later and explain the same thing.
Next thing you know, the band's introduced the two musicians, and a
new creative project is formed.
IA6 prioritizes booking spaces, locally and on tour, for those who feel
marginalized and often become docile bodies at punk shows. Safe spaces
found at DIY venues, art galleries,
house shows. These are the spaces
that give an opportunity for people to
build community and start projects.
Li£'s performances in these collec
tive spaces mediate other forms of
interactions as well. While touring —
once in Europe and once in the US —
a transgender individual approached
Li£ after their set to ask about the
scene in Vancouver   /;        'J ""
They wanted to talk about the scenes
we came from. They wanted to either
get away from the scene they were in
because they're not jjecepted where
they were or they're just curious because in their community they're one
of a small minority," explains West
"So being in a place that provides a
space for people to come and have a
dialogue with bands from out of town
and people who might have shared
similar experience — to have a platform for them to ask questions."
Lie}s next show will be on November
21 at the Black Lab, where they will be

f|ft If Some of the best lessons in life
come from high pressure moments.
While slow-cooking can result in
some mighty fine meals, sometimes
you just have to turn up the heat in
the kitchen. For the band MALK, this
moment came when they stepped
into the studio to record their upcoming EP Prehistoric. Meeting with the
Abbotsford five-piece, I have a chance
to find out more about how the experience catapulted them forward.     1§1
As I'm sitting with the band members
in Victory Square, I can easily imagine MALK returning next summer
to grace the stage at Music Waste's
Block Party. The band's brand of infectiously dark, surf-pop songs would
be perfect for an afternoon spent at
the outdoor affair, the noir-pumped
vocals of Alex Smith and Miranda
Maria sure to delight the crowd.     f||
While Smith and Maria frequently
employ a call-and-answer dynamic,
the two singers — with the help of
lead guitarist Kyle Schick — can often be heard highhghting each other
in a medley of three-part harmonies.
On top of haunting vocals, much of
the band's distinctive sound can be attributed to Schick's edgy guitar lines.
The guitarist draws from a wide range
of influences to craft his own tone. 1|g
"I think I have such a weird mixed
love of Jimmy Page-shreddy dudes,
and then also like Thurston Moore
making noise with a drumstick," says
Schick. "I try to get the best Of both
worlds in there. Tiy to be melodic and
exciting, but also abrasive and rash,
frenetic or whatever."
While MALK still consider themselves as a young group, they've been
able to accomplish a lot since form-
62
MALK K'SSftSffiW^-SIJBSf^^-^'ftSWW^SSSSJlfflS
ing in 2013. In May, the original trio
of Smith, Maria, and Schick release<j|
a three-song demo — available for
streaming on their Bandcamp — with
Jaydee Bateman playing drums for
some of the tracks. Bateman would
become a permanent member of
MALK, with Lou Labbe signing on
soon after to cover bass guitar duties.
Thinking back, Smith is critical of
the band's early self-titled release:
"When I listen back to the demo now,
it sounds like a band but it's very all
over the place. We recorded that ourselves very, very cheaply. The equipment we were using was absolute
garbage. I think we had pillows and
blankets over the drums."
The inclusion of Labbe and Bateman
allowed each member to focus on
their own role, resulting in an overall
tighter sound for the band. As Schick
notes, "Everything feels a lot more
cohesive. The songs sound more fully
formed with a solid rhythm section."
With their lineup complete, MALK
gave recording another go-around,
opting for the studio approach this
time. This past July, the band paid
visit to Little Red Sounds where they
worked with producer Felix Fung.
While the band has a lot to show for
themselves with their new EP, they
left the sessions with a lot more than
just the recordings songs.   iSl^^^H
Smith recalls: "When we went into
the studio the first time, we thought
MALK
63 WB. were fully fj^mpi and then the
pjbducer-"
"-Rdllly Wckejlour ass, " Schick finishes.
overdubbed guitar solos or anything
like that. I think there's ofte keyboard
overdub on the tape and the rest is
just the vocals that we overdubbed.
The rest is live."
"He made you want to call your mom
for support," Labbe quickly adds.       e
The band was jolted into top-form
thanks to Fung's sharp attention to
detail and traditional approach to recording ^^:M^i&^   '    Iwl^&iV*-
"All of the instruments were done
live off the floor," says Schick. "No
Smith adds, "[Fung] records that way.
He wants the band to be able to play it
live. You gotta play the song. It really
showed us how to play together as a
band and really listen to each other."
Fung's old-school approach to recording can be credited with giving
MALK's new release it's dynamic,
breathing sound. The members aren't
MALK short on words for describing how the process inflt||
enced them.   ^^ftlS^^^I
"It feels like we learned a
lot as a band 'cause we got
to play together while we
were doing it," explains
Labbe, "as opposed to isolating tracks and doing them
on their own and then putting it together and maybe
trying to hear what doesn't
work. It really stood out
when something didn't fit."
"It probably gave us a good
headstart." reflects Smith.
"We wouldn't be as good
as we are now if we didn't
go through that then. The
evolution would have been
slower."
With the release on the horizon,
MALK shows no signs of slowing
down. The band is already applying
their studio-learned lessons to their
next batch of tunes. As Schick notes,
"I feel better every time we write a
new song. It's making more sense.
Every other practice we're trying out
something new" |    ||§
With an eye to the future, Smith adds,
"We already have almost enough for
another EP. By the time we're ready to
record, we'll have an excess amount."
Expect to hear more from MALK in
the future as their music spills out
through your speakers — and that's
definitely nothing to cry about.   fejS|
The Prehistoric EP will be released qn
December 13 through Wiener Records,
available on cassette and as a digital
download. If you can't wait that long to
hear the new songs, you can check out
MALK live on November 11 at The Hindenburg as part of CiTR's Shindig.
