New Music You Might Not Know About [Part One]

Chet is another Canadian indie band that's awesome. For the most part, mellow, full of soul, and just really enjoyable. Chet is Ryan Beattie (who has played with Frog Eyes) and his brother Patrick, who are currently being accompanied by Megan Boddy (of MeatDraw) and Thomas Shields and Matt Skillings (who are both in Run Chico Run). They've recorded an album called Chelsea Silver, Please Come Home which should soon be out on Absolutely Kosher. There's a track from each album below, they all rock.

Your Element Will Make It Seem Natural (from The Tiger Is In The Window, 2003)
By Night Into Paradise (from Fight Against Darkness, 2007)
Saint Gerome, My Baby Tames Lions (from Chelsea Silver, Please Come Home, 2009)

More tracks are at myspace and on their New Music Canada page. Albums can easily be bought from Scratch Records and CD Baby.

Ganache is that guy [Thom Stylinski] from The Whiskers, just without all those other folks. His record, an EP titled A Halter Pardon Him And Hell Gnaw His Bones! will be released by Awkwardcore come a week from next Tuesday. Its got four tracks, one of which has been released another of which has been remixed (by Matt Vuchichevich) for your listening pleasure. I can assure you that the EP is quite good, to simply put it.

More about Ganache can be found here and here.

Noun - Holy Hell Pink Couch Sessions

from If You Make It's - "Pink Couch Sessions"

Holy Hell
I played with Marissa's other band Screaming Females in Charleston, SC on election day. We all had a lot of fun, and it was nice to see tri-state area buddies when your on the road. Especially when it randomly works out.

Noun is Marissa's solo project, and it's amazing. Check out her myspace to hear more, and go see her slay at guitar in Screaming Females.
