AND SUPPORT CiTR & DISCORDER! EDITOR'S NOTE: ON TEAMWORK AND TACKY SWEATERS
The editor/art director relationship is an interesting one. It represents the
struggle to balance creativity with constraints. Every month Jaz, the art director,
and I, have our share of ups and downs at Discorder, whether it's a band I've
slated to feature who just happened to break up a week before production,
or an illustration submitted for a feature that had to get canned. It's funny
behind the scenes sometimes.
This final issue of 2012 was a bit backwards. While contemplating the
JanCember cover, nothingwas really getting me jazzed. But if one thing does,
it's a list: digestible bites of Best-Ofs and Worst-Ofs; the stuff that churns up
banter and opinion-spouting galore, while recounting a year's worth of highs
and lows. We ask for staff picks each year, so I figured we should ask for our
artist's picks this year, too. Cover solution? A visual list! A photographic tribute
to all the great bands and artists we've featured in the past 10 issues. Clad in
ridiculous sweaters and funny head adornments, obviously.
When I announced this group portrait scheme to accompany the feature to
FEATURES	
06 Miami Device: If you're looking for a quick-fix to get the Don Johnson-circa-1987 look,
you're in the wrong place. But if it's infectious Afro-beats you're looking for, look no further.
07 Raleigh: Discorder sips tea with the lovable prog-folk trio from the city we love to hate.
10 Discorder's Staff Picks 2012: We listen to, write, and talk about music all year. Why
would JanCember be any different? Read what our contributors' favourites were this year, in
75 words or less. 12 Portage & Main: Twangy country intersects with catchy pop on the
Vancouver-based sextet's latest, Never Had The Time. No animals were harmed in the writing
of this article. 16 Discorder Artists' Picks 2012: Our feature bands and artists don't just
make music, they listen to a lot of it, too. Read on to find out what the people you love to listen
to loved listening to this year. 18 The Sunday Service: Hey look! It's the greatest improv
group that ever graced the earth and/or galaxy and/or entire universe. They have medals and
trophies and stuff to prove it. We think.
Jaz, the look of horror on his face was indeed discomfiting. Logistical nightmare? Yes. Impossible. No. And we did it. While some of the bands were on
the road or just busy, I think we wrangled together a pretty great cross section
of the talent that we covered in 2012.
Speaking of wrapping things up, the SHiNDiG finals shake down on
December 4 at the Railway Club. Be sure to visit us'again in February, when
you'll get to read all about the winner. Another bonus is the anniversary
calendar we made for Discorder's 30th birthday, featuring 30 covers from
30 years of this fine publication. Perfect gift? Probably. Visit discorder.ca to
buy yours while they last.
And with that, 2012 is basically over. I almost can't believe it. What a year
it's been, and what a year we have to look forward to. 2013, here we come.
Read on and stay rad,
Laurel Borrowman

by BOB
WOOLSEY
On January i, 2012 transit fares in the Lower Mainland will be going up. Before you think that you
see where I'm going with this, and stop reading
because you're tired of people bitching about transit prices when at most times no one checks the
tickets on the bus or the Skytrain anyway, please
enjoy this brief disclaimer: I ride transit every day. I
actually really like the Vancouver transit system. It
gets me where I need to go on a pretty consistent
and dependable basis. I don'tmake enough money
to take cabs where I need to go and not even close
to enough money to think about owning a car.
Thus, I rely on the city for this essential service.
I'm not one of those people who like to complain
about the fact that you can' t get a bus late at night
or that Translink is a corporate hog who wastes
money like a 16-year-old Bob Woolsey at a Star Trek
convention1'3. End of disclaimer.
The situation in Vancouver is clear: we actually
need more transit infrastructure. I don't normally
have to ride the bus at 8:30 a.m. or 5 p.m., but
when I do, I'm reminded of how crowded a lot
of our main commutes are. The Evergreen Line
and other upgrades to our system are desperately
needed and prohibitively expensive. This is, of
course, the reason why the government subsidizes
Translink through many ways; one of the largest
and most noticeable is the fuel tax.
driving campaign in an effort to get more cars off
the roads of the city in favour of bikes, pedestrians
and, yes, transit. Remember that other outcry over
government spending recently? Does the term
"bike lane" mean anything to you?
This leads to the kicker. In our efforts to get drivers off the roads in favour of more environmentally
friendly options, we've actually taken Translink
out at the knees. If you couple this declining fuel
IN OUR EFFORTS TO GET DRIVERS OFF THE ROADS IN
FAVOUR OF MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY OPTIONS,
WE'VE ACTUALLY TAKEN TRANSLINK OUT AT THE KNEES.
Last year, 24 per cent of Translink's revenue
came from the extra 15 cents per litre that was
tacked onto gas bills in the lower mainland. As of
July 1, that rate rose to 17 cents per litre.
Before you get too dazzled with all these numbers and facts while still being distracted by the
image of my 16-year-old self standing in line for
an autograph from red shirt crew member number
three at that Star Trek convention^, think about
this: while the B.C. government has been funding
Translink through this fuel surcharge, the City of
Vancouver has been pursuing an aggressive anti-
tax revenue with the projected shortfall of funding
over the next three years, Translink starts to look
something like Bobby Orr circa i977t3].
My question is, why was anyone surprised
by this?
I have a theory. While all this hoopla with the
bike lanes was going on and Gregor Robertson
was avidly pursuing his dream to make Vancouver
the Netherlands of the Pacific Northwest, no one
actually thought he might be successful. It never
crossed the minds of any of the Translink executives or B.C. government officials in charge of this
fuel tax. Why? Probably because a lot of them drive
cars. Again, this is just a theory.
Here's the thing about sustainability and
the three Rs, and all that other environmentally
friendly stuff everyone is talking about these days:
we have to mean it. Like David Suzuki means it.
Otherwise, what the hell are we doing? I assume
the idea behind the fuel tax, at least in part, was
to discourage people from driving and to try to get
them to take transit instead. And no one in that
meeting said, "Hey, this could be a slippery slope
guys!" because no one in that meeting actually
thought that anything could tear the dedicated
North American commuter from their beloved
car. Just like how the red shirt crew member
never thought twice about going on that away
mission141.
[1 ] I only actually spent about $60 at that convention,
but adjusted for inflation, that's nearly $87.50 by
today's standards.
[2] I'm not actually that lame. I only stood in that line
because my parents wouldn't let me stand in the
Captain Kirk line since it was way too long and
'   would have taken hours.
[3]   Bobby Orr had really bad knees.
[4]   The red shirt crew member always died. Always. SIN CITY FETISH NIGHT

Q 1489 EAST HASTINGS ST Q /WALDORFHOTEL Qj @WALDORFHOTEL by JAVIER BADILLO
It is possible that Vancouver's Miami Device, after years of grinding the pavement, have learned to be as adaptable as their city's
urban landscape. Move out before you get done in, seems to be
the mantra of their upcoming debut album Monopoly.
Discorder spent an afternoon with nine of the band members at Muster
Studio, an eclectic art/music space on the Downtown Eastside, discussing
their name, their influences, and how they beat the odds to produce Monopoly
in pure d.i.y. blood, sweat, and tears.
"The songs were recorded at places that don't exist anymore," says Brandon
Hoffman (guitar) after the nearly two-year recording marathon. "Half of the
album was recorded at my old house, which we dubbed 'Gladgnome,' until
±e house was demolished."
Adrian St Louis (drums) finishes Hoffman's sentence like only a band-
mate could. "So we took the recording to my old house, which we dubbed
'Graceland,' and finished the process there. I had to move out because the
house had to be demolished as well," he laughs.
The result, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Hoffman, wi± assistance
from Leathan Milne (guitar), is a 40-minute ride of punchy, pure-quality
Afro-beats. This is a record that oozes love for the craft. And evictions aside,
this floor-shaking group of musicians—10 in their current lineup—and
their trumpet, trombone, tenor and baritone saxophones, synths, guitars,
drums, congas and shekeres (the bead-wrapped wooden ball that sounds like
brushing your teeth) have been forging their own brand of upbeat, original,
mostly-instrumental melodies for a number of years. And with the December
4 release of Monopoly, Miami Device have officially arrived.
"The name [Miami Device] has nothing to do with the city," says St.
Louis, the band's founding member. "There's a shaving product out there
that, legend has it, shaves just enough to give men a five o'clock shadow. It's
called the Miami Device, and I've been looking for it for years without success." That was six years ago, and it would take four more to finally galvanize
the current lineup, bringing a full, dynamic, and richly layered concoction
of Afro-beat flavours, instrumental big-band American funk, and tropical
reggae undertones, all siphoned through our Zen West Coast sensibilities.
To compare Miami Device to their biggest influence, Nigerian musician,
activist, and Afro-beat legend Fela Kuti is just scratching the surface. This
group offers a fresh take on polyrhythms, chants, and horns.
Monopoly's fourth track, "Indian Arm," is a chilled out theme that starts
with a driving reggae/funk guitar riff by Hoffman and Milne, later transporting us into familiar groove with Mike Pratt (tenor sax), J.angston Raymond
(trumpet), Tim Sars (baritone sax), and Kevin Tang's (trombone) perfecdy
harmonized brass section, while St. Louis, Syd Beagle (congas), and Justin
Kennedy's (shekere) plunk together tight, lively percussion. In the end, the
song opens up to a mellow, misty, and cool vibe, with a brilliant outro featuring
St. Louis' splashy ride cymbal and Georges Couling's blissful organ solo. It's
reminiscent of Ray Manzarek's dreamy rambles on "Riders on the Storm."
With plans to tour next year, the band's ambitions are patient, large, and
long term. They briefly experienced life on the road, playing Whistler and
Osoyoos in 2011 and 2012, and have shared the stage with notable international
artists like Canadian rapper/songwriter k-os, Brooklyn electro-funk ensemble
Chin Chin, and Chali 2Na of Jurassic 5 and Ozomatli fame. With ±ese credits
to their name, it looks like Miami Device are here to stay. And very likely with
more solidity than the changing Vancouver cityscape.
Miami Device throw their record release party on December 1 at Sideshow Studios,
(5 W 2nd Avenue) with quests Whiskey Chief. Doors at 8 p.m. $10 cover.

It's late autumn, the air crisp and chilly as the wind
rises, scattering leaves wildly, making everything
burst with a strange and strangled beauty. The
warm, brightly lit Googly Eyes Studio fills with
laughter as I sip tea with two thirds of Calgary's
delightful folk pop purveyors, Raleigh. They've
been diligent and driven lately; recording and
touring steadily while still finding time to gab
and gambol between mixing sessions on their
sophomore LP, Sun Grenades and Grenadine Skies, set
for a spring 2013 release.
The captivating Clea Anais (vocals/cello/piano)
underscores Raleigh's regard for western Canada.
"Vancouver is the cultural hub of the west and we
come here a lot. The music scene here is closely tied
to Calgary's and there's always a lot going on."
"We're very much connected to the Calgary
scene," adds an affable Brock Geiger (vocals/
guitar/bass). "Our style of music has lent itself
to participating in different niches in the Calgary
community; from the bar scene to the folk festival
and beyond. We're not leaders of any one scene but
we've made ourselves available to many."
Anais and Geiger lead prolific musical lives
beyond Raleigh (between them they play in
the Dudes and Dojo WorJchorse, amongst others), as does their deftly skilled drummer Matt
Doherty (Axis of Conversation,. High Kicks).
But for working musicians to play in multiple
bands is fairly common, especially in a sometimes fickle musical milieu.
"Having grown up and cut our teeth in Calgary,"
Anais says, "our various projects have allowed
us to really get to know the artists there and it's
a very supportive and fostering place. I'm happy
in Calgary, but I would love to try out a larger city
at some point"
This wanderlust may be what routed Raleigh
to Montreal's venerated Hotel2Tango Studio—
recording destination for legendary acts Arcade
Fire, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Thee Silver
Mt Zion—to record their follow-up to 2011's glowing debut, New Times in Black and White.
"Ultimately, we took a chance," gilds Geiger,
"butitwas a safe risk, for me, knowing that some
of the best albums around were recorded there
by Howard Bilerman, with assistance by Greg
Smith."
"China Flowers," a cut off the forthcoming LP,
begins with a brambly brush of guitar that gives
"WE WERE QUITE PREPARED WHEN WE WENT INTO
THE STUDIO," ANAIS SAYS. "WE HAD THE SONGS
READY AND WE KNEW WORKING WITH HOWARD WAS
GOING TO BE A LOT OF LIVE, OFF-THE-FLOOR STUFF."
way posthaste to a sweetly obliging cello melody
as Anais mews auspicious and hopeful. Whether
live or recorded, they are their own universe with
their own cosmology and gravity.
"We were quite prepared when we went into
the studio," Anais says. "We had the songs ready
and we Joiew working with Howard was going to
be a lot of live, off-the-floor stuff. In our minds
we had a lot of things mapped out but we wanted
to add to our sound, so we used French horn,
trumpet and a saxophone, and in that respect it
was new to us. With these elements we expanded
on our trio."
'This one really takes on a new life for us,"
Geiger adds, happy as a kid on Christmas.
With mastering nearly complete and the band
seeking label backing, music fans can expect
Raleigh to be touring a lot behind this release
as well.
"We plan to release it properly and support it
properly," Geiger says with good grace, anticipating more Jive shows and time on the tour
treadmill.
"I control the gears for you..." Anais sings,
more pop than rock, a sort of Baroque measure
that's frequently heart-piercing and precise on m
r
"Inside Lines," also from Sirorenades and Grenadine Skies. It pulls thelisfefiet
in instandy with its beauty, colour, and pastoral conjuration. Cello notes
pop and glow like stars—at times fleeting and giddy—as male/female
harmonies, precious and fey, but potent, resonate like church bells.
"Our sound is constantly evolving," says Geiger. "In the past we
described ourselves as folky, but we've gotten more interested in bigger
arrangements and song structure. We joke that it's sorta prog folk," he adds
with a grin. Geiger may be close in his definition, but Jethro Tull, Raleigh
ain't. They're more new-fashioned and transformable than that
"We stay away from playing stylistically in any one genre," Anais adds.
"We're more interested in fleshing out ideas, having fun, and stretching our material into different directions. It's hard to say exactly what
genre St. Vincent is or Dirty Projectors are, and while we aren't loolcing
to duplicate what they're doing, we similarly don't want to easily fit into
one classification."
Trainspotters be damned, not everything can be put aside and
pigeonholed.
"I like to setup that we're a guitar/cello/drum trio," Geiger says. "Our
use of these instruments nets us a larger sound. We aren't trying to fit
into a blueprint, but our two albums are tied together by the instruments
and the players. Sound-wise, it's matured as our band has grown. I feel
we're naturally coming into our own."
Refracted through their personal lens, Raleigh inhabit a shape-shifting
capacity. Doherty, a deep-pocketed drummer, helps flesh things out as he
gathers momentum like a locomotive while Geiger's guitar bursts over
Anais piano notes that drop like rain. There's something in their music that
draws you near, makes you still a moment Silent, perhaps, and observant.
A Frankenstein of their own making, maybe. Made up of available parts
and pieces as its palpable genius works, plays, and stirs. CUSTOM T-SHIRTS

The CiTR and Discorder family know music. We write about
it, we photograph it, we watch it, we sort it, we play it,
and we listen to it. A lot.
If the Mayans are right and the world ends in December,
at least we can go out knowing that this was a mighty high
note to go out on. Here's our picks of 2012.
Jordan Ardanaz, Under Review Editor
local: The New Values, The Hew Values A spitfire of
spastic, thrashy punk that pushes all the right buttons,
everything on the New Values debut is propelled to the
very brink of falling apart, If that wasn't enough, there's
enough attention to song writing for an album's worth of
catchy hooks, all covered by a patina of self-awareness
and wit. The New Values show that It's possible to make
energetic guitar-based music that sounds as interesting
and creative as it Is raw.
anywhere: Hot Chip, In Our Heads This one caught
me by surprise. I like dance music, and I like dancing; I
am human after all, but I haven't encountered much of
it this year. Maybe it was the bikinis and the beer-bike
adventures that went to my head, but In Our Heads didn't
leave my car stereo, and will forever make me think of
Summer, 2012. And anything that so effortlessly makes
you feel like sunshine is a winner to me.
Sarah Cordingley, Music Dept. Programmer
local: V.Vecker Ensemble, In the Tower I'm
not entirely convinced that they're an "indie
supergroup" as The Straight put it. Or even that
they're some kind of avant garde ensemble of
"musicians." But they do definitely pull off this lush 20
minute "composition."
anywhere: Deep Time, Deep Time This might just be
the catchiest, sweetest, most cat-themed thing that's
ever happened to me.
Fraser Dobbs, Writer
local.- Ian William Craig, Cloudmarks Not just one of
my favorite local records this year, but one of my favorite
records of all time, period. Cloudmarks is beautiful, haunting drone in the spirit of Eno's ambient series, flecked with
tape-deck noise and unpredictability.
anywhere: Windy ft Carl, We Will Always Be Despite
the horrendous first song "For Rosa," this is the definitive
Kranky [records] experience. "Fainting In The Presence
Of The Lord" is a gorgeous 19 minute journey into your
own head.
Coleman Ingram, Writer
local: Hoopsnake, Knucklehead Straight up doom-
metal from Squamish. There is obvious Sabbath worship
here, which Is ubiquitous with the genre, but Hoopsnake
hit all the other key elements that I love about stoner/doom
on this five track outing: they have the occult sense of
bands like Electric Wizard, shrieks reminiscent of Bongzilla
and guttural growls like Deicide, lo-fi production like
Eyehategod, but NOT the ultra-boring drone of bands
like Sunn 0))).
anywhere: Bloated Pig, Made for Hell Calgary metal
stalwarts get heavier on their third full length, Musically
and lyrically darker than 2011's Ways to an Early Grave,
Made... sees Bloated Pig exploring the fringes of their
influences with up-tempo songs becoming faster, slower
songs tuned lower, harsher vocals spitting out more cruel
and disaffected words; it's just more severe in every way.
So basically, it's fucking awesome.
Steve Louie,
Real Live Action Editor, Photographer
local: Jay Arner, Bad Friend I know it's not an album,
but seriously this is what I've been listening to all summer
and fall. I happened to be in Seattle when Jay Arner played
their second show as a band at the Crocodile alongside
Memoryhouse and Seapony. Wow. It also happened to be
my birthday weekend. Wow.
anywhere: Holiday Crowd, Over the Bluffs I listened
to more seven-inches and EP's this year, but probably the
most consistent album of those this year is Over the Bluffs
just for the reason that it reminds me of being amped
to go to New York for NYC Popfest and the band actually
played the festival.
Joni McKervy, Writer
local: Capitol 6, Pretty Lost These guys make me feel
like this is my 70s, like we're all wearing suede vests and
crocheted dresses, drinking in a saloon in the desert of
California. Feels pretty good.
anywhere: Frank Ocean, Channel Orange I haven't
loved a whole R&B album since Cooleyhighharmony, so
falling for Channel Orangems a big surprise. Beautiful
and badass from beginning to end.
Duncan McHugh, Writer
local: Peace, The World Is Too Much With Us I've been
a fan of Peace for a while, but the songs they're writing
now are their best yet. I heard a lot of these songs during
their Music Waste set in June and I was counting the days
between then and the October release. The first single,
"Your Hand In Mine," is my song of the year.
anywhere: John Maus, A Collection Of Rarities And
Previously Unreleased Material This is the year that I
finally gave in and pledged allegiance to Our Dark Lord
John Maus. A couple of years ago, before I had gotten
into his music, 1 heard he was playing the Waldorf on
New Year's Eve and wondered why people would want to
go a show on a night with so many other things going
on. Now I know. This album collects songs from 1999 to
2010, and shows off how weird (and brilliant) Maus has
been for a long time.
Cali Travis, Writer
local: Apollo Ghosts, Landmark Utterly unpretentious.
The ultimate most fun you can have at a show, and at
parties gets everyone sputtering, "Holy crap who Is this?"
And I'm like, "It's my friends, Apollo Ghosts. Duh." Except
I'm sometimes nicer than that. An effing gem.
anywhere: Moonface, With Slinait Heartbreaking
Bravery Spencer Krug Is my hero. His every project turns
to gold, and silk, and flames, and flowers. Moonface has
been a personal and courageous endeavour, and unceasingly rewarding. This album was just that.
Shane Scott'TravIs, Write?
local: Chains of Love, Strange trey Days Wrecking
Crew-style production by Felix Fung (the Phil Spector
of the band) brings a wonderful Wall of Sound polish to
these near-perfect pop confections. Nathalie Pizzaro's
pipes summon the Shangri-Las and the Ronettes with a
serrated bite. Her harmonies with Rebecca Marie Law Grey
are heaven-sent. This is a relevant nostalgic throwback
love affair.
anywhere: First Aid Kit, The Lion's Roar A lovely long
player from Swedish sisters Klara and Johanna Sdderberg,
full of bucolic beauty that habitues of country-folk indie
will quietly go berserk over. That "Emmylou" evokes the
star-crossed heartache of Gram Parsons and Emmylou
Harris while paying them both honest homage is one reason to cherish this record, and their honeyed-harmonies,
soft as falling snow, is another. Tissues recommended.
Jordan Wade, Host of Discorder Radio, Writer
local: Said The Whale, Little Mountain It includes an
eclectic mix of fast paced numbers with intelligent lyrics
on 'Loveless' and 'Jesse, AR' and slow reflective tracks
'Seasons' and 'Big Wave Goodbye' complete with lots of
local references to our city, our home. They even released
a video series for all tracks on the album. Honorable
mention goes to Vancouver's Fine Times.
anywhere: Tennis, Young and Old With their nostalgic
lyrics and enchanting melodies, Patrick Riley and Alaina
Moore, a husband-and-wife combo from Denver, Colorado,
perfected a distinctive sentimentality. Moore's smooth
sweet voice is the sugar on top of this modem indfe pop
meets early 1960's surf rock hybrid. It's a winner from
start to finish. Honorable mention goes to Australia's
Tame Impale. lit ill

PORTAGE
&MAIN
by ALEX
DEfcOER
1 Vancoffref band Portage & Main,* haye a familiar
ting to their name. Although ostensibly titled
' Tsytij? \*fady and biting Winnipeg cross streets,
the group makes bolder reference to the serene
intersection of rural and urban Canada. Both with
family in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, lead singers,
guitarists, and band instigators, John Sponar-
ski and Harold Donnelly, aim to juxtapose their
remote country roots with the notion of city, as
represented by a main street. The idea is that when
you stand at these metaphorical cross-roads, you'll
find Sponarski and Donnelly's city-kid selves running in one direction, and the sweeping country
sound they've come to craft rurihiajfc.in another.
Portage & Main is where they overlap.
With staggered arrival, I meet the many members of the country/pop band in their enormous
East Van jam space. Amid Persian rugs and purple
graffiti, Savannah Leigh Wellman (vocals), Ben
Appenheimer (bass), Georges Couling (keyboard,
vocals), Dave Gens (drums), Sponarski (lead vocals,
guitar), Donnelly (lead vocals, guitar), andlsitand
chat near the door, while the statuesque figures
of assorted musical equipment balances our company on the opposite end of the room.
Immediately, something about Portage & Main
strikes me as unusual. Searching for an official
start to thelbferieline, they tell me that their debut
show took place on March 18,2011. Thesame date
as the release of their first, self-titled album - not
a typical sequence of events for a band.
As the story goes, old friends Sponarski and
Donnelly accidentally wrote a song together while
jamming one day. What began as an enjoyable incident, then evolved into a routine musical exercise.
"We would get together like once a week in Harold's
basement and hash out tunes," Sponarski explains.
Soon enough, the pair had authored a whole collection of songs. Cataloguing them was the next step,
and as Sponarski reasons, "We thought, 'Well if ...THEY WERE HEADING TO A
TOUR-END SHOW IN LETHBRIDGE,
AND DONNELLY DROVE THE
BAND'S BUS OVER A DEAD DEER,
THINKING IT WAS AN OIL SLICK
ON THE ROAD.

we're going to record them, maybe we'll play them
sometime, and then maybe we'll be a band.'"
As Sponarski and Donnelly make clear, this
unique band approach is largely a reaction to
being in so many bands that never put out records.
"I didn't want to spend three years playing the
Railway Club," says Sponarski. His disdain is not
directed at the venue but rather ±e idea of getting
stuck playing a rotation of shows attended by
people who just want to drink beer. There is also
the reality that audiences like to walk away with
something in their hands. Having a band immediately armed with a record, website, and touring
plans, helped Portage & Main attract fans right
from the get-go. Sponarski sums up the band's
initial and still existing attitude, "If we're going
to do this, we're going to do this right."
After spending their high school days gigging
in punk bands, Sponarski and Donnelly realized
that country music is what comes naturally to
them. Their newest album, Never Had the Time, is
evidence of how effortlessly they are able to draw
from this genre. Continuing as a progression of
their first record, Never Had the Time is about as
sincere as music comes. Produced and recorded
by Couling at Deep Cove Studios, its songs are
lush and heartfelt. Threaded with notes of pedal
steel guitar, the title track starts the album off
with a distinct hat tip, while soft and stomping
tunes like "Oona Jean" and "Sweet Darlin" wave
forward the Western introduction. According to
Donnelly, "This album is an evolution. It's just us
trying to get better at what we do." For an example,
he cites the lovely Wellman/Sponarski duet "This
Old Heart." This lament uses a delicate ripple
of guitar chords to emulating the grieving tenor
of heart strings played one time too many. Like
Sponarski explains, "We're not trying to reinvent
the wheel. It's pretty much a band that's firmly
rooted in a tradition." That tradition is apparent
not only in the album's five-piece-plus country
instrumentation, but also in its lyrical content.
Themes of personal growth, compromise, and
heartbreak colour each song. Though warm and
determined tunes such as "Lied to Me" and "As a
Child" use the charisma of chorus and carefully
timed guitar build ups to challenge their sombre
subject matter.
Rolling forward with Never Had the Time in their
rear view mirror, Portage & Main can also gaze
back on the stirred dust of their past four tours.
Although a group of friends, the band might be
more aptly described as a family of passengers.
And owing to their country sound, Canada's
prairie roads have suitably hosted some of their
most memorable experiences. For example, the
time they were heading to a tour-end show in
Lethbridge, and Donnelly drove the band's bus
over a dead deer, thinking it was an oil slick on
the road. Or there was the intimate show they
performed in a Yorkton, Saskatchewan coffee shop.
Apparently Donnelly's attempts at stage banter
went awry and he ended up saying, "I'm sure
any other night of the week this place would be
crawling with strippers," in front of a particularly
sparse, particularly elderly audience. Experiences
like these have brought both humour and camaraderie to the band's character.
As Sponarski says, "Since the beginning of
the band, it's been a real homegrown family.
The people who are involved are like our best
friends and the people we trust and have known
for a long time. Everything is kind of like a team."
Considering all that their teamwork has already
accomplished, Portage & Main seems to be heading in a direction worth following.
Never Had The Time drops on January 22, 2013.

We at O/scorcfe/lhink we're pretty darn lucky to live in a city
that's oozing with bands of all sorts. They make our ears
feel really good. But you know what keeps us up at night?
Wondering what the people we listen to are listening to.
Consider the mystery revealed. Read on to find out
what the bands you are listening to are listening to.
Brasstronaut, May feature artists
LOCAL: Japandroids, Celebration Rock These songs
really are a celebration. In fact, I don't think I've heard
a song quite as anthemic as "The House That Heaven
Built" in a longtime.
ANYWHERE: Getting into AC Newman's new record, Shut
Down The Streets. I've always loved the complexities of
Newman's song structures. They're sophisticated and singable at the same time. If you care about song composition,
it's fun to try and deconstruct what he's doing. If you don't,
well, the songs are still highly satisfying to listen to.
Dirty Spells, April feature artists
LOCAL: Needles//Pins, 12.34 Punctual. Tight. Amphetamine-driven beats and disaffected lyrics. Catchy melodies.
Sick garage riffs. Fucking rifftastic! The ideal summer
day: after-work sunbathing, pedestrian-dodging on the
Seawall while biking to 3rd, or catching the sunset from
Beer'n'Smokes Island. Party jams.
ANYWHERE: Each Other, Heavily Spaced Along with
the Mandates and Brazilian Money, one of the sweet finds
at Sled this year. Eerie melodies and driving beats that
feel stuck in molasses. We think we might be playing a
45 backwards at 33. Deerhoof on Valium.
Fine Times, September feature artists
LOCAL: Noble Oak, We Decide/Heaven EP Three dreamy
tunes that became a welcome addition to my nighttime
playlist. Credits to Noble Oak for evening out the mental
chaos of my regular work week.
ANYWHERE: TEEN, In Umbo Lo-fi indie rock that's
been buzzing in my headset ever since I saw them play
at the Media Club. Each playback is a subtle reminder
of how fantastic they were live and how hard I swooned
at their show.
Gang Signs, September cover artists
LOCAL: Grimes, Visions We know she's technically based
out of Montreal, but she's a local to us. Just a great great
album. Easy second runner up, the New Values debut. Great
songs! One of the few bands that is so killer live and put
out a record that managed to translate that!
ANYWHERE: Trust, TRST If you've heard us and heard
Trust you'd know that we would consider these guys kindred
spirits. This record was a highlight of the year.
The New Values, November cover artists
LOCAL: V. Vecker Ensemble, In the Tower Psychedelic
in all the right ways.
ANYWHERE: Eagulls, Eagulls Raw sounds from Leeds.
You will have the song Moulting stuck in your head
for days.
Nii Sensae, May cover artists
LOCAL: White Lung, Sorry Duh. The best part of the record
is that it's 19 minutes. Rumor has it they are working on
a 19 minute version of Pink Floyd's The Wall.
ANYWHERE: Brothers Unconnected, Unrock the
House A two-LP live set the Brothers from Sun City Girls
performed in Germany last year. It's got almost all the
hits: "Soi Cowboy," "Rookoobay," "Dreamland (ForDina),"
"Horse Cock Phepner," and the insanely odd "Eyeball In A
Quart Jar Of Snot."
Ruffled Feathers, April cover artists
LOCAL: Jordan Klassen, Kindness EP We played with
Jordan in Victoria for Rifflandia and his band put on a
really good show. He's in the Peak Top 3 this year and we're
hoping he'll do well.
ANYWHERE: Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Allelujah!
Don't Bend! Ascend! They were my favourite band when
I moved to Vancouver years ago and this is their first new
album in 10 years. I saw them play at the Vogue and there
' was a kid getting arrested for trying to sneak in multiple
times, screaming, "You don't understand! I have to see
this show! It's been 1Q years!"
Tim the Mute, Kingfisher Bluez,
September feature fellow
LOCAL:.Needles//Pins, 12.34 What a great record! It
doesn't even have to be so good, because it has "Drop
It" on it and that could carry the whole thing on its own. I
guess probably a few people picked that so I am gonna say
the new Japandroids is awesome as well. Jesse Gander's
production is a huge step up from the first album and it
all just sounds so young and energetic and eager to show
you how much fun it's having, which is great!
ANYWHERE: Frank Ocean, Channel Orange This is
such a good record. I listened to it every day when it came
out and am even coming back to it a few months later. It
sounds great and it makes an excellent argument for the
album format. I saw him at Coachella when he played
"Thinkin Bout You" and when he hit that falsetto, it was
insane. Girls were screaming and guys were throwing their
hats in the air. Instant classic status!
Weed, May feature artists
LOCAL: Cascadia, Conditionally These guys are the best
band in Vancouver. First time we saw them was at a weird
show at the Biltmore and we were all hooked instantly. So
many layers of grunge sediment with perfect pop melodies
at the bottom.
ANYWHERE: Naomi Punk, The Feeling Tight homies
and kind of labelmates with Weed. I get physically nervous
every time I see them perform. My body swells with pride.
My heart sinks, in a good way.
White Poppy, October cover artist
LOCAL: Peace, The World Is Too Much With Us Also,
the Watermelon singles. But the only local album I own is
the KC Reeves cassette by the Courtney's, which I really
like. My boyfriend / bass player Ian bought it at the 420
show at 360 Glen. It came with a pot cookie that made
us feel like shit.
ANYWHERE: Samantha Glass, Midnight Arrival It was
released by Not Not Fun Records and the tape was sent to
me by them. I listened to it over and over when I first got it.
I liked it so much I got in touch with him, and we are now
Working on a collaborative album due out in 2013.
We'd like to give a huge thanks to Community Thrift &
Vintage at 41 W Cordova for donating super styling garb
to our cover shoot for this feature. From holiday sweater
season to unique everyday wear, they've got you covered,
and support the heck out of our community to boot. '   m^   -*=> ,     ',   '*:      »*    T   ,::>-

THE SUNDAY
SERVICE
by JQN!
MCKERVY
...DURING THE VANCOUVER
INTERNATIONAL IMPROV
FESTIVAL, THE GROUP COLLECTED GUEST IMPROVISORS
"LIKE KRILL THROUGH THE
BRISTLE TEETH OF A WHALE."
It turns out Canada's next greatest export after
Tim Horton's and asbestos is improvised comedy. Attesting to this fact are the long and storied
careers of the veteran improvisers of the Sunday
Service. Since 2006, the group - Emmett Hall,
Aaron Read, Taz VanRassel, Caitlin Howden, Kevin
Lee, and Ryan Beil - has run a weekly improv
show on Sundays at the tragically spelled Kozmik
Zoo on Broadway (formerly Hennessey Dining
Lounge). In August they won a Canadian Comedy
Award for Best Improv Troupe, an accolade of
no small importance in a country apparently rife
with improv activity. The group, who the UBC
Improv website calls the "final word on improv
in Vancouver," garnered six CCA nominations
this year, including best web clip, best podcast,
best female improviser and two nominations for
VanRassel and Beil for best male improviser.
"Improv is something that Canada doesn't play
catch-up in with the rest of the world," says Beil,
one of the Sunday Service's longest standing members. "We're on the forefront of it."
Most of the Sunday Service players first started
doing improv in high school and at the Canadian
Improv Games, which has provided improvising
teens with an instant, nation-wide community of
like-minded jokers for almost forty years. Contrast
that kind of tradition with Howden's current gig
teaching improv to students in Poland where, as
she describes, "They only started doing improv,
or even heard what improv was, about three years
ago." Canada's love for spontaneous, breakneck
paced improvised laughs has created a large and tight-knit network, and the foundation for some
career-spanning relationships.
"That's how I met Ryan," recounts VanRassel,
"through the Canadian Improv Games. He was 17,
I was judging."
"Inappropriate relationship," interjects
Howden.
"Very inappropriate," agrees VanRassel, without
skipping a beat. "I asked him to be on a team with
me at an underground improv tournament. And
we've performed together ever since." .
When Discorder asks what the difference is
between an underground and mainstream improv
tournament, VanRassel gives a quick shrug.
"I don'tknow," he says. "(The tournament] was
literally in a basement."
Nearly a decade later, the Sunday Service
formed as a group out of the collapse of a weekly
night by the same name, which had run for a year
at the now defunct Wink on East S^Ave. Members
came and went, most notably, Vancouver's improv
guru Alistair Cook, who served as original host of
the show at Wink; and Craig Anderson, whose
move this year to Toronto has earned him the tide
of "seventh member on reserve." Howden, who
moved to Vancouver from Toronto in 2011 and
joined at the beginning of this year, is the most
recent addition to the lineup.
Hall provides musical accompaniment on
piano during the shows, and also produces
the group's podcast, the Sunday Service Presents:
A Beautiful Podcast. For this monthly show, the
group records improvised scenes in studio (Hall's
house), which becomes the raw material for a
kind of chopped and screwed improv experience
1
¥.*■
that includes everything from songs to sketches
and special guests. Guests on the podcast are
frequently comedians and performers from, or
passing through Vancouver. According to Lee,
during the Vancouver International Improv Festival,
the group collected guest improvisers "like krill
through the brisde teeth of a whale." Recent guests
have included Dave Shumka from Stop Podcasting
Yourself and Pat Kelly from CBC's This is That.
Beyond being simply the best of their kind in
Canada, members of the Service all enjoy accomplishments in their many pursuits beyond improv,-
as actors, comedians, musicians, and writers. But
in a fashion perhaps classically Canadian, when
talking about ±eir success, the responses swing
widely between false hubris ("I'm kind of a big
time theatre actor, "-Beil says when prompted to
talk about his work. "Sort of the best in the city.")
and the kind of self-deprecation that feeds off the
humour in the downside of everything. When
recounting the Sunday Service's showing at the
Canadian Comedy Awards, Howden reels off the
list of awards they received nominations for but
didn't win:
"Neither Ryan, nor Taz or myself won. And we
didn'twin for best podcast And we also didn'twin
for best web clip... So, it was nice to win something. " And, just like when they are on stage, the
team starts to ratchet up the absurdity of the situation with a rapid-fire barrage of quips.
"We won the one that we wanted," Hall says
in earnest.
"Yeah, and it's the biggest one, too," follows
VanRassel.
"It means everything," says Beil. "The other
ones mean nothing."
"It's all parts of a whole, and we won as a whole,
so all the parts can go fuck themselves," Howden
declares.
Through the jokes it's clear that the group is
aware of their growing success, and appreciative
for the recognition. If s a complicated pursuit,
making something so ephemeral and site-specific
as live improvisation into your business, but the
Sunday Service seem aware of the hurdles they
face in terms of growth potential.
"It's hard to pre-package and sell it [because]
part of the magic of improv is being there live and
seeing us walking a tightrope in front of you," Lee
explains. "If you see it on tape, you're like, 'What
else is on?'"
"It's tricky to find what that next step is, especially because we're laying the track as we're doing
it," adds Hall. "Vancouver doesn't really have any
format to follow in terms of having a successful
career in improv."
Considering that they've got the longest running and most popular improv night in the city,
and have just won an award for being the best
improv group in Canada, the Sunday Service
appear to be drawing a pretty decent blueprint
for future improvisers to follow.
In an attempt to delve deeper into the strange and
mysterious collective psyche of the Sunday Service, the
group was asked to provide and answer their oum
interview questions. Here's what happened.
Aaron:
Is that your real hair?
Yes, unfortunately.
Emmett:
If you had to "Freaky Friday" with one other member
of the group, who would it be?
Urn...
CAITLIN:
I have boobs! ,
Emmett:
Yeah, let's go with Caitlin Howden.
Taz:
Where's the craziest place you ever made whoopee?
Ah, there's a berm in false creek, and that's all
I'm saying.
Caitlin:
If you were a burrito, what kind of sauce would you
taste best with?
I like a chipotle lime.
Taz:
Very white.
Caitlin:
Okay, well, and how about some salsa - made
from scratch!
KEVIN:
How do I get home jrom here?

The School of the f^ Hammock (TSOTFH) is a noncoercive mentorship, conversation, and community-
based education project. Launched by Heidi Nagtegaal
in 2012, TSOTFH uses Hammock Residency as a J$se,
and partne|f with other spaces to provide access to
materials, according to need antf ingenuity. There are no
limits on the number of mentors, spaces, or people you
partner with. Use as many or as few as you need. Buil ,
spaces. Embody them. TSOTFH offers an alteriltive form
of post-graduate education for fine arts aff<l culture.
i hammockresidency.cil '/;•
All photos taken at Access Gallery, except above, taken at the
Hammock Residency (Heidi Nagtegaal's home).  ^^^B
"The Hammock Residency started in 2006,
offering space to focus on the process of
making art. I want you to read all the books
you've been meaning to read, and write what
you've been putting off. It is a community
hub, happenstance event space and a good
space to let things happen. It's the spaces
between the thoughts that inform the
thoughts, and ultimately the art object.
I don't have much to offer you, but what I
do have, you are welcome to share. We can
put on the kettle and talk it out, or I can
Jgiyeyou alone to do whatever you need to
do. Residencies happen within my house, in
East Vancouver, just off Commercial Drive. If
you feel inspired to present a project that
you've been working on while in the
Hammock, we can host small events at the
house, or host one off site via intervention, or
another arts space partnership."

Vancouver's hip-hop scene is a bit
like an under-developed child. You
want the best for it, but it lacks the
essential protein in its DNA it needs
to make a full go at life. That's a bit
cruel, but reality is harsh and it's a
tough game, this rap game.
That said, Boombox Saints, who
are by local standards old-hat—
they've been at it since a MySpace
accountwas still a reasonable idea—
have coalesced their experience in the
scene into a very decent release. Their
new album For the Moment achieves
a sound that's free of pastiche and
contrivation; something unexpected
and all too rare in a mainstream hip-
hop album.
At their heart, Boombox Saints
clearly love old-school hip-hop, and
this quality manages to shine through
in their apparent honesty, despite the
glossier R&B elements that complement the album, often featuring subtle and effective female harmonies.
Produced with the help of DJs
Hunt and Kemo, For the Moment sees
a fully fleshed out, mature crew flowing over deep beats with an assertive
vocal attack that, depending on the
song, can land somewhere between
Drake and Lupe Fiasco. Highlights
are the extremely tight flow heard on
opening track, "Whole World," and
a few of the slow jams that dotFor the
Moment's 14 tracks.
As far as R&B-infused hip-hop
goes, this is a release that Vancouver
deserves.

DIAMOND RINGS
(Astralwerks)
Sporting a bleach-blond mohawk,
and loaded with the catchiest synth
beats the '80s can inspire, Diamond
Rings continues his rise to electro-
pop fame with Free Dimensional, his
second full-length release.
Leading with an extensive, smoky
hook, "Everything Speaks" sets the
tone. The album is all about rhythm,
and John O'Regan's vocals almost
serve no purpose-they simply create
a persona to advance the rhythmic
journey and feeling that he creates.
The moment his voice chimes in, it
serves as an enchanter, beckoning
from a foggy lake, amidst the pulse
of the rippling water and the eerie
chill of a soft breeze.
This idea fills the rest of the
album. The rhythm creates a universe
and O'Regan's vocals create a personality within that grand foundation.
Such is the case in the second track,
"All The Time," where a bouncy echo
sound gives me a neon-lit city street,
a futuristic Milan or Paris hotspot
to stand in and enjoy. And I'm content with its minimal grandeur, until
O'Regan bursts through in his metal-
lie, sparkly leather jacket and commands himself forward, supplanting
his own celebrity.
This is a common theme, an aural
burst of sing-speak lyrics that define
the flashy dynamism of the album. We
hear this in "Hand Over My Heart," "A
To z," and especially "I'm Just Me,"
where the chorus reaches a Karate
Kid level of intensity.
All in all, Diamond Rings straddles
a fine line between mainstream
dance pop and indie electro-
synth, but it's a line worth straddling. It just surprises me when
what I'm enjoying the most of
a pop singer's album isn't the
pop singer himself, but the
dynamic, melodic background
he's crafted.
—Evan Brow
INDIAN WARS
(Bachelor Records)
When the reverberations of Dave
McMartin's guitar meet Brad
Felotick's raspy vocals on "There
And Back Again," you'd be right to
assume Indian Wars are a genuine
southern blues outfit And as
they've written plenty of songs
about it, dress like it, and probably
dream about it, the easygoing five-
piece have adopted some pretty
convincing personas.
Indian Wars' sophomore effort,
Songs From The North, is an
uncomplicated collection of
fuzzed out country, woven with
southern psychedelia and West
Coast charm. These boys are able
to play the part. Boldly channelling '8os Americana, Indian
Wars waste no time conjuring
their unique brand of carefree
booze blues.
Felotick drives the album
with his Springsteen swagger
as Fraser With casually hammers
out Everybody Knows This is Nowhere-
era solos over a honky-tonk rhythm
section. For these guys it's not how
much beer is in your cup, but how
long before it hits the floor and you
head back for another.
"Denny," the catchy tale of a mystical burnout, opens with the plainly
put "Young Denny lied down on the
floor / He ate a tab, then he ate two
more / Said goodbye to sanity, washed
away his memories / Until he wasn't
Denny anymore," before diving
headlong into the reassuring chorus, "Dead man walking / Everything
will be OK."
Meanwhile, on "Windshield
Wiper Blues," John McMartin's lazy
percussion does well to accentuate Felotick's distant drawl.
Songs like "Florida" and "Who
Needs A Girl Like You" best harness the whiskey-fuelled energy
Only found in the south, the latter
being the album's definitive piece
of freewheeling Americana. On
it, Felotick tells the romantic tale
of a train-riding hobo who leaves
his uptown girl for a carefree life
on the road, complemented by
Craig Pettman's raucous harmonica
and slide guitar solos.
Songs From The North is made for
dancin' over a beer soaked barroom
floor that clings toyour feet from the
stumbling audience. So prepare to
drink up and get movin'l
—Robert Catherall
LIMBS OF THE STARS
(Independent)
In the rousing world of post-rock,
where sometimes spacey abstractions
. vie tor seating amidst experimental
musings and pensive avant-garde jazz, in the same sphere of crawling-
builds-to-crescendo, is where you'll
find Limbs of the Stars. This Vancouver trio, featuring members of Fond
of Tigers, is newly minted with a
debut LP that's a cool grab bag sure
to strike a chord with enthusiasts of
aseptic acts like Sigur Rds, Tortoise,
and Godspeed Youl Black Emperor.
With songs like the eight-minute
instrumental ambush of "Cosby,"
Limbs of the Stars don't seem so
much Interested in creating a template for hypnotic space rock, as
much as carving their own cranny
in these frequented, yet fantastical,
shores.
There are some haunting and
high-flown flashes throughout
Heartu>amton|erinfl, an album title that
is both cheeky and cryptic. Vocalist
Stephen Lyons has a volatile mien, but
he doesn't dominate anywhere, and
seems happy to be buried in the haze
a lot of the time. In "Film Song," for
instance, his vocal delivery is malleable and quietly sinister, allowing the
cinematic quality of the track to kindle casually. In "Heartwarmongering
No. i," Shanto Acharia's cello acts
as a sort of phantasmal force and
Skye Brooks' drums fill in pale and
prolonged spaces, as if to score a
taut and terrifying giallo picture like
a delicate Dario Argento (if there is
such a thing).
The stars were once thought of
as a link to the mysterious past, and
believers seemed certain that our fates
are written there. It's easy to speculate
that ideas of prophecy and consolation may well be at the haunted heart
of Limbs of the Stars, allowing for
references of bygone traditions to be .
mixed-up with brave new expressions.
It's challenging music for some, perhaps, as it sprawls in many mannered
directions, but for the adventurous,
Heorturarmonaerinfl offers up some
shadow-shrouded riches.

OK VANCOUVER OK
ESCAPE THE COMMON PEOPLE
(Independent)
Escape the Common People is the most
recent full-length release of the prolific Jeffrey Mark Johnson's project,
Ok Vancouver Ok. If you haven't
heard this eclectic artist, Escape is an
excellent point of entry. Its dreamy,
lo-fi sound comes from having been
recorded onto audio cassette with
a Tascam 4-track that was a gift—
according to the record sleeve—and
was mixed and mastered by the Hive
Creative Lab's Jesse Gander, who has
also worked with an eclectic collection of artists Including Japandroids,
Dixie's Death Pool, Anna, and the
PackA.D.
There are a number of reasons
why this album isn't just cool, but
also representative of a cultural
movement. It's a prime example of
the idiosyncrasies that can manifest
themselves through a d.i.y. avenue
free of label influence. Besides being
available for digital download, there
is also a run of 220 LPs, all of which
have unique covers, hand-painted
by Johnson himself. The absence of
polished, high-def studio production
gives Escape the personal warmth and
friendly intimacy of a house show.
Furthermore, the album's message is actually sincere, but not self-
righteous. This is apparent right
from the first song, "Tests," in which
Johnson sings, "Thank you farmers!
/ For saving seeds to feed you and
me." The fourth track, "Nature,"
emphasizes this in a funky soap-box
preacher manifesto about the relationship between capitalism, poverty, and the diminished availability
of fresh, healthy food.
Altogether, Escape the Common
People is a whimsical, intelligent,
and enjoyable listen; it might be
rough around the edges for some,
but it has the soul to win over a loyal
following.

Vancouver's Tristan Orchard has
a new mixtape out called Slow Your
Roll 11, and it certainly lives up to
its name. It's a chilled-out mix mat :
laces hip-hop and R&B acapeilas of
varying levels of obscurity over Byn* \
thy, spaced-out beats. It's pleasant
enough as a backing soundtrack, but  j
it never really does anything to grab
the listener's attention.
With a name like Slow Your Roll,   \
this is probably intentional. The
arrangements are sparse, and the  \
vocals are often pitched down to
barbituric effect—R, Kelly opens the  j
mix with some slow-motion flirting,
and Enya brings the mix to a glacial,   I
drawn-out close.
Orchard never gets too ambitious  !
with his beats. He sticks to simple  ]
synths and the raw, retro-hip aesthetic
of classic '80s drum machines. That j
sort of sound that has been quite
successful for folks like Drake and
Childish Gambino, but it makes this  \
mix sound generic and derivative,
particularly in a weird dubstep-like  j
moment early on that evaporates !
as soon as it arrives. Orchard's  i
beats are pleasant, sure, but never ;
groundbreaking.
While the backing tracks
complement the vocals well  !
enough, the transitions between  ;
tunes seem to be more of an \
afterthought than anything else,  j
often little more than a simple 1
crossfade. Not that such a laid-
back mix should necessarily be
going for tight, beatmatched
transitions or elaborate mash-
ups, bu t it would have been nice i
to see a bit more effort put into
the switch from song to song.
If you're looking for something to put on to provide a little
relaxing background sound,
this might be just what you're
after. But if you're looking for
something compelling to really
sink your teeth into, you should
consider looking elsewhere.
Slow Your Roll II is a mixtape that
achieves its stated goal, perhaps
a little too well.
—MattMeuse
PREVIOUS TENANTS
(Independent)
RareForm. It doesn'tgetmuch sweeter
than this. If you're a 20-something
whose personal golden age of punk
rock took place during the '90s, Previous Tenants have a treat for you. Over
its 13 songs, Rare Form takes cues from
the MTV generation of pop-punk
and hammers home an exceptional
sounding record ripe with uwoa-oh-
oh chorus chants and introspective
lyrics that lean on the side of being
just weighty enough.
Sonically, Rare Form doesn't deviate too far from the tried-and-true,
blending indie rock with a sound
reminiscent of Dookie-era Greenday,
NOFX, or Me First and die Gimme
Gimmes, minus the goofy humour.
What really turns Previous Tenants'
first record into more than just a nostalgia gold mine is the crisp production and Jesse Gander's just-starting-
to-s train vocal delivery. Particularly on
standout track "Previous Lives," sim-'
pie guitar hooks and the most basic
verse-chorus-verse structure actually
serve to strengthen the song's appeal.
Still, Rare Form doesn't break the band
out of any predefined moulds, and while a certain indie rock sensibility is present throughout songs like
"Headlights" or "On Pyramids," the
album lacks the diversity that punk
bands in the early '90s were so eager
to show off with their ska, hardcore,
and metal influences.
What's most impressive on Rare
Forms is the awesome consistency,
with zero dud tracks and few seconds
wasted between its many riffs. Twenty
years too late to cash in on the pop
punk boom, Previous Tenants have,
at the very least, created a blissfully
tight piece of musical nostalgia.
—Fraser Dobbs
REVERTER
(Independent)
Beautifully disjointed and exceptionally unsettled, Future You mixes elements of math rock and post rock to
create a rather magnetic experience. Kim Glennie and Patricia
Kavanaugh create intricate and
unconventional guitar smatterings alongside equally complex timings by drummer Barry
Higginson.
Reverter's debut record is full
of everything you would expect
in a nerd rock record, and some
things you wouldn't; the vocals
and instrumentation are an exercise in contrast. Kavanaugh's delivery
ranges from a smoky cabaret vibe to
a punk aesthetic similar to that of
Sleater-Kinney's CorinTucker, except
in a lower register. Her wails are often
in the same pitch, which leaves the
question of whether Kavanaugh is
capable of explosive bellows completely unanswered.
While the vocals are raw and
rough, the arrangements are tight
and all of the unconventional riffs
and rhythms line up like a complex,
math problem. The dichotomy is
not a problem, however. There's
just enough melody to keep your
ears tuned in and the right amount
of accessible musical patterns to keep
your brain from hurting. In fact, on
the album'stitle-track and finisher,
the vocals are noticeably absent and
sadly missed as the track meanders
on for six minutes with an improvisa-
tional feel. Still pretty cool, but different from the rest of the tracks.
Overall, Future You is a consistent
record. The album neither contains
standouts nor are there any glaring
problems. The opening "Tranny
Song" sets the tone and pace immediately with elaborate guitar work.
Thirty-nine minutes later, and
floating between layers of post-
rock noise, math rock precision
and purposeful un-refinement,
it's as if you are still listening
to the opening track. Future
You is pretty decent math rock,
but leaves me with the urge to
pull out my Long Long Long
records.
—Slavko Bucifal
SEX WITH STRANGERS
(Independent)
Swapping lyrics in favour of broken
hearts and uncertain relationships
rather than intergalactic, space
invader imagery, Sex With
Strangers' fourth studio album
Behaviours may be their most personal to date. But even with the
more forlorn lyrics the band isn't
leaving their glossy and electronic-
glazed rock tunes far from the
dance floor.
Behaviours is Sex With Strangers' ;
first album since completing their !
"robot-rock trilogy." As this suggests, :
the previous three albums offered lots '
of synthesizers, futuristic filters and ;
blatant apocalyptic lyrics. Behaviours |
still dabbles in similar themes and j
totes that late-eighties newwave feel,
but it's far more rock-pop in com- ;
parison to its spacey synths and lyrics 1
that have been toned down several ;
notches.
The opening and title track, j
"Behaviours" is the first sign of this. \
The catchy number has a poppy !
melody with a chorus that's a cross j
between the Killers and U2.
The electronic, new wave vibe  j
is at times not just toned down, but  \
non-existent. Mellower tracks like  !
"Blindness," which has an unexpected '60s pop groove, proves that  |
Sex With Strangers can really dive  ;
into another sound without a hitch.   \
Yet there are moments when particu-  ■
lar songs can't help but teeter back
to those overtly futuristic, robotic-
pinching soundscapes, which disjoint  ■■
the album. "The Brave One" starts off
like a cool Depeche Mode-inspired
number, but soon sounds like the
soundtrack to a Matrix sequel.
There's some new territory
being explored on Behaviours, which
is indeed intriguing. But when the
themes and intense sounds of the
band's previous records come pounding through, it leaves the listener a
little bit at a loss for direction.
—Angela Yen
SEX CHURCH
(Instant Pleasure / Psychic Handshake)
Sex Church's new 12" EPSomnambu-   I
list offers up three deep tracks that  [
will pull you close, swaddle you in  ■
resounding noise, and guide you on
a dark journey through a fractured
dreamscape.
- The rolling drums, unfaltering J
bass line, and droning guitars of 1
"Hidden Hand" are entrancing, as 1
the weighty, brooding track lurches \
and surges. Levon Olsen howls des- j
perately through the cavern of sound, j
until its storm breaks in a slight
glimmer of hope as it trails towards-
its conclusion. As though carrying
on from where this last track left
off, "Slipped" is immediately more
buoyant. Jangling guitars are set to
an lucid tempo while forlorn vocals
reverberate from behind, creating a
song that sounds like the Gun Club
crossed with the less bleak side of
Joy Division.
This brief flicker of light is quickly
extinguished though, as everything
slows to a near halt for the last eight
minutes of the record. Guitars buzz
and drone, and the beat drudges
into a grim yet intriguing night terror entitled "Wrong Side." The wail
of a saxophone periodically breaks
through the cacophony, taking you
to the backwoods of Louisiana to
witness a voodoo ritual. The vocals
are even more distant and reverb-
drenched than the previous tracks,
as Olsen presides over the dark rite.
As it progresses, the track becomes
more and more invasive, the volume
steadily increasing, slowly consuming your psyche until suddenly, with
a resonating howl, the music comes
to a crashing halt and you are startled
back into consciousness.
Another solid release from one
ofVancouver's most interesting and
unpredictable bands, Somnambulist
is sure to garner deserved acclaim
and entrance a few new Sex Church
disciples.

WRONG WAVE FESTIVAL
FEATURING:
SPECTRUM INTERVIEW/
MERLYN CHIPMAN /
STEFANAFRATILAAND
RONAN NANNING-WATSON /
NEU BALANCE
Nouember 7 (cD The Waldorf
Chill vibes were the centrepiece of
the first night ofWronfl Wave: Art Rock
Belieues in Reincarnation. The night's
motto seemed to be, "Baby, it's cold
outside, so let's stay cozy and work
those necks." Concentrated, heartfelt
head-bobbing was the name of the
game. Each act blended intensity with
patience.
Neu Balance, a.k.a. Sam Beatch
and Sebastian Davidson, had the most
energetic set of the night, with hip-
hop and house stretched and reshaped
with a mid-point '8os-synth palate
cleanser. Projected behind them was
a collage of black and white blinking
eyes, which gave a Lynch-like feel to
the performance. The visual loop in
extreme closeup referenced the creative repetition and expansive feel of
the music.
The most artsy part of the set may
have been the quiet human drama
unfolding beside the performance: a
carnation-wearing rapscallion and—I
think—one of the gentlemen from
Spectrum Interview, deconstructing
and reconstructing cigarettes with
precision and aplomb. Rather than
distract from, it complemented the
piece. And it really made me want  j
to smoke.
Next, Stefana Fratila lent human
voice to the evening, while Ronan  |
Nanning-Watson collaborated on
visuals and shakuhachi, a Japanese   I
end-blown flute whose "soulful  j
sound made it popular in 1980s
pop music in the English-speaking  \
world," according to Wikipedia. It
looked like a giant recorder and provided subtle undertones to Fratila's   j
mournful vocals. She's definitely  I
matured since 2009's Grows Up.   .
Lounging amongst the cords and
pedals, she interrogated and repeated
certain themes, expanding and contracting her own voice and clips into
soundscapes. Extreme closeups of
the woods and its creatures complemented the experience.
Throughout the night, on what
would usually be the dance floor,
attendees had been investigating !
the zoo of equipment, some vintage, some kluge-like, all resembling
electro-acoustic workhorses. This
menagerie was corralled by Spectrum
Interview, an electro-acoustic quartet !
of improvisers by the names ofDavid
Leith, Toby Carroll, Lee Hutzulak,
and Frederick Brummer. Joining them  j
was Merlyn Chipman, who was, I then
realized, the carnation-wearing rapscallion. Chipman provided improvised visual feedback to accompany
Spectrum Interview's melodic noise.
His patterns weren't mind-blowing,
but visuals mixed to the music. To
watch someone "play" patterns and
rock out to them, was new to me.
On this night of Wrong Wave the
art took a back seat to the rock element, but the art-student vibe was
there, and it was engrossing. Having
now ridden the Wrong Wave, I see it's
a quieter, more raw, and more nebulous sibling to fests like New Forms
and Swarm, and we're already anticipating its next year.
—Maegan Thomas
FUSE FEATURING:
IN MEDIAS RES
November g @ Vancouver Art Gallery
The art scene can be an odd world
to step into. God loves the artsy
folk for doing what they do and
understanding what makes art
worth looking at. Though not
immune to being moved by a gorgeously painted canvas or sculpture
that speaks of faith, tradition, and
experience, I find that modern contemporary art has a way of going
over my head.
However, it was the duty of this
writer to leave judgment at home
and to step into the world of FUSE,
a unique event held three Fridays of
each year in which the Vancouver Art
Gallery opens its doors in host to some
very cool music, art installations, and
performance that you might not see
at a typical gallery. With work by featured Canadian contemporary artist
Ian Wallace as a backdrop, guests
wandered the gallery, schmoozing,
boozing, and taking in the many
mediums on hand.
Performing on the main floor
every hour on the hour was modern
dance troupe MACHiNENOiSY, which
was kind of strange and beautifully
rendered. A woman and man, Delia
Brett and Daelik respectively, dressed
in red and white, pushed, pulled, and
undulated around on mats, performing an almost yogic sex argument
where one would pull the other into
their space, writhe around them, lift
them up, scream and yelp a bunch,
and then separate back into circling
each other. Tmsure there were many
there who "got it" and appreciated
every second. Though intrigued by
the stories and dialogues told through
bodily movement and dance, it still
passed me by.
What wasn't lost on me was a
performance by Vancouver experimental band In Medias Res, playing
their movement of music titled "After
the moon comes the sun and again
the moon: experimental music for
electric guitar, bass, and drums."
Set against a backdrop of projected
moving images and video overseen
by video artist Sammy Chein and featuring works by contributing artists Khan Lee, Mark Soo, Andy Dixon,
Nicole Ondre, and Derya Akay, the
band built it's slow burn ferocious
sounds into the images, encasing
them in even deeper meaning. When
the evolving lotus flower-like painting wasn't mesmerizing enough,
the musical drones and loops that
band members Andrew Lee, Ryan
Flowers, and Ash Poon, along with
guests Lindsey Hampton and Shaunn
Watt, projected with force and precision that had me by the collar. When
the plane taxiing on a runway neared
take-off as the music built to a climax,
I was transfixed.
This is what I came for and it was
during their set that it registered how
cool this event is, despite my misgivings about hard to swallow art pieces
or dance expression that made my
eyes cross. We are fortunate to live
in a city that facilitates this artistic
freedom. In one building were many
well-dressed people from all walks of
life, each with their own idea ofwhat
is profound and each appreciating it
in a different way. Under one roof was
art, music, and dance, all of which
had a unique message to bring. I'm \
not entirely certain how I downloaded
that message, but one thing is certain:
I will be back.
—Nathan Pike
BLACKBIRD BLACKBIRD /
TEEN DAZE / NOBLE OAK
November 10 (p) Fortune Sound Club
Seeing three young producers of
warm and dreamy electronic music
playing back to back was a stark
contrast to the resident atmosphere
of Fortune Sound Club's "Sup Fu?"
Saturdays. I arrived in time to catch
Noble Oak performing, nearly hidden
behind the bulky DJ booth. The projected live camera helped me actually
see the shy-looking man behind the
moniker, Patrick Fiore, a musically
productive UBC student. With just a
laptop sitting on top ofhis keyboard,
he played dreamy compositions,
evoking nostalgia for fleeting summer moments and hazy sunsets at
the beach with the Lions lurking in
the background. Atop his swelling
chords and laid-back rhythms, Fiore's
reverb-driven vocals fit in with the
ambience, despite being too vague
to discern any lyrics most of the time.
Standing out of the dreampop haze
was "Fast Track," driven by a mellow
drum and bass beat in the vein of LTJ
Bukem, that showcased his skill as a
keyboardist.
Next was Teen Daze behind the
decks, intensely grooving to some
choicy nu-disco and UK bass cuts.
While it may have been thrown out
countless times this year, Todd
Terje's "Inspector Norse" still got a
not quite club-going crowd moving
to its almost comically quirky beat.
Jamison's short but packed set was
positively surprising, showing an outgoing and upbeat side to the tastes
of a musician rooted in ele'ctronic
music's more mellow and introspective valleys.
Trading seamlessly with Mikey
Maramag, a.k.a. Blackbird Blackbird,
the show proceeded straight into a
heavily summery atmosphere back
into Fortune. With a setup similar to
Noble Oak, the young San Francisco
resident playfully manipulated his
loops while loosely retaining a pop
song structure. With most songs
barely reaching the two-minute mark,
his set took on a fast pace as he wove
in and out through his hook-filled
tracks. Crisp and sharp saw-synths
were in heavy use, contrasting with
his ethereal vocals, especially on an
unexpected cover of Modest Mouse's
"Float On." Later in his set, Maramag
presented more guitar-based tunes
from his newest release, Boracay Planet.
The result was an easy-going hybrid
of jangly garage rock and electronic
dreampop, which would have been
more effective if played with some
actual guitars on stage. Regardless,
Blackbird's talent lies in combining
fragmented influences into catchy and
uplifting tones, and he did just that
in closer "All." It began with a melancholic post-punk riff, and ended
on a different planet to the chime of
cheerful steel drums. As it came to an
end, Fortune's DJs dropped Kanye's
"Mercy," and Saturday night really
came to a start.
—Christian Voveris
SHINDIG SEMI-FINALS #2
November 20 @> The Railiuay Club
Was Round Two of CiTR's Shindig
semi-finals too close to call? Which
is more important? Musicianship,
stage presence, or both? What is
luck, really? These are the questions
that arose. It wasn't an upset, but all
three acts were so good, it was hard
to tell who would win. The night
kicked off with Lunch Lady, who
served up a lovin' spoonful of noise
rock with a side of charisma. Maybe
itwas because ofZoe Giles's (guitar/
vocals) snarling delivery, counterbalanced by Saoirse Soley's shambolic
drumming and Marita Michealis's
equally shambolic bass work, or their
sarcastic sense of humour and stage
presence. Lunch Lady certainly have a
couple of gimmicks up their aprons:
Soley likes wearing them, while Giles
loves to gesticulate and emote on
stage. On set-closer "I Want to be
±e Girl on Your Arm," Giles shrieked
"I'm not jealous! / I'm not jealous!" as
she contorted her face into exaggerated (and uproarious) expressions.
Lunch Lady were a beast.
And if Lunch Lady were a beast,
then second act, Greenback High,
were a machine. The pop-punkers
churned out a precise, loud set, complete with melodic riffs and energetic
gang vocals. It went fast, like the
groaners at the Jokes for Beer competition that followed. Considering
their seasoned lineup—Rob "Beardo"
Wright (bass), Matt L. Snakes (guitar), Joshy Atomic (guitar), and Floor
Tom Jones (drums)—have played in
Vicious Cycles, the Jolts, Von Zippers,
and D.O.A., this wasn't surprising
at all.
Classic Rick played last, and
started on a bit of a detour. Apparently,
Classic Rick was crushed by a stack of
amps during a Uriah Heep concert-
and so his cousin, 25 times removed,
took his place. Classical Richard,
wine glass in hand and wearing a
powdered wig, a cravat and a pair
of knee socks, ascended ±e stage
with his similarly dressed backing
band. The crowd went wild with
laughter to "Opus 37 in B# Major"
("My name is Sir Richard/I work at
the shit-yard/I shovel shit all day/
And at night music I play") and a
rendition of "Greensleeves." Then off
came Classical Richard's moustache,
revealing another moustache underneath, then his 18th-century getup.
It was Classic Rick himself underneath the jacket and pantaloons,
jean-clad with a Sharpied sleeveless
tee: "RI/CK." The backing band followed suit. Classic Rick and Classic
Rockers, live!
Classic Rick (and Classical
Richard) were Sean Antrim and
friends playing for laughs ("Opus
37 in B# Major" was made just after
they won the first round of SHiNDiG.)
The lineup included Chris Martell
(Synthcake), Joseph Hirabayashi
and Kevin Romain (SSRIs), Adrienne
Labelle (Aunts & Uncles, Movieland,
Slight Birching, Lost Lovers Brigade),
and for this night, Julian Marrs (Marrs
Pedals), who formed a cohesive
backup to the comedic hijinks on
stage and in the audience. Ultimately,
it was Greenback High who won.
As I said, itwas close.

THE DISCORDER SHOW
with Wade &CJ

nine months at which point they both got busy
with other things. Raine got busy with his own
show Sounds of the City. He handed it off to a girl
named Ana Garza.
How do you feel the radio station complements
the magazine?
cj: I think the radio station is like a collective consciousness. People who come in and out of this
station are filled with stories about bands. So many
people know so many different things about music
in Vancouver. The show is not just an extension of
the magazine but of what people are talking about
around the station.
Over the past three issues, in honour of Discorder's
impending thirtieth birthday, we've recalled stories
of bands and events from the magazine and CiTR
101.9 in Discorder Revisited. This month, we combine
that column with On The Air. This month, we part
with print memories and head for the airwaves with
Discorder Radio. Jordan Wade and Chirag Mahajan—
CiTR, the next generation, if you will—are the current hosts of Discorder Radio, the much-younger on-
air sibling (it just turned two!) to the monthly mag
you're reading now. Sitting down in CiTR's lounge,
the pair brim with knowledge of the show's history,
their plans for Discorder's upcoming anniversary, and
their ambitions for the future of the show.
Discorder: What is Discorder Radio about?
WADE: Basically [Discorder Radio] is the audio representation of what you will see and read in the magazine each month. We try to break it down so we give
a fair and equal amount of airplay to the features,
the reviews, and RLAs [concert reviews].
cj: The show is a way to push Discorder on to another
medium, since we are based out of a radio station.
This is the logical step to take the magazine in.
How did the show come to be?
wade: Itwas the brainchild ofRaien Naraghi and
former program manager Spencer Lindsay. They
started the show in October 2010 and ran it together
until June 2011. They did the show together for
How did you get involved?
wade: Ana ran the show from June 2011 and then
sent out an email in December looking for an assistant. I replied saying I would totally be into doing
this. I always wanted to get more into independent
radio. I liked the fact that this station and this show
is helping to harness young local talent. Back in
March she asked if I wanted to take it over, and I
was like, "Sold!" I did a couple of shows on my own
and I needed help with the console and luckily CJ
was around. We had a good chat about [working
together], exchanged some great on-air banter and
the rest is history.
What sort of music did you grow up listening to?
wade: My favorite music growing up was alternative rock but I also liked a lot of house, trance, and
a lot of the oldies. Bands like the Offspring, the
Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the Tragically Hip. I
listened to [Toronto indie/alternative rock station]
The Edge religiously.
cj: My musical history is kind of weird. I only
started listening to rock and electronic music when
I moved to Vancouver in 2007. Before that, most
of the stuff I listened to were CDs that my parents
had, which was basically jazz, classical, and Bollywood music. When I came to Vancouver in 2007,
I found out about the enormity of the Internet. That
was the year I first heard "Stairway to Heaven" by
Led Zeppelin.
What is your favorite radio show besides your own?
wade: I've been listening to The City which is right
after us. I'm interested in a lot of urban planning
issues. [Particularly] the fact that [the] show deals
with things that are near and dear to me about
Vancouver.
cj: I love electronic music so I religiously listen to
Trancendance on Sunday nights at 10 p.m. They've
been [running the show] for about 12 years.
Discorder magazine is celebrating its 30th anniversary in February. What plans does the show have
to celebrate?
cj: I would like to talk to pastwriters, contributors,
and photographers to get their sense of where they
want the magazine to go and where they want the
show to go. Ultimately it's a collective thing that
we're working on. The stoffwe do is nothing without the [material] the writers write. I want to delve
deeper into [how] itwas and where it will go.
wade: Respect the history of the past talent that
owes a debt of gratitude to Discorder. Potentially
reaching out to [previous cover artists] and catching up with them, and finding out what a feature
article or album review did for their careers. I would
like to use the anniversary as an excuse to take the
show to the next level.
Discorder Radio airs every Tuesday from 4:30 p.m.

CiTR's charts reflect what's been played on the air by CiTR's lovely DJs last month. Records with asterisks (*) are Canadian and
those marked(+) are local. Most of these excellent albums can be found at fine independent music stores across Vancouver. If you
can't find them, give CiTR's music coordinator a shout at (604) 822-8733. Her name is Sarah Cordingley. If you ask nicely she'll
