Spectrasonic Presents: Mushy Gushy & Kiwi Jr. With Special Guest Expanda Fuzz!
Tickets available at Vertigo Records and online at https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/87061315739
Mushy Gushy (Ottawa garage pop):
We combine 80's hair metal with garage/indie rock tendencies in a way that has definitely been done before many times. But we like to think we are pretty good at it.
We call it "Butt Rock".
Just think "Boys of Summer" by Don Henley but noisier.
Kiwi jr (Toronto indie, Mint Records):
Circulated by MINT RECORDS, already recreated at high volume on stages across Canada, labeled "Delightful as $#!@" by NOW Magazine and "Naive enough to be charming" by Exclaim, Toronto’s Kiwi Jr. presents FOOTBALL MONEY : a dispatch stitched out of fragments, a lustrous twelve-string paint-job unraveling ten booksmart tracks in under thirty minutes. A product of two years of labor, a monument to work-life balance, the record is not unattractively scarred by its circumstance : recorded by nightfall in dormant studios, friends and enemies drafted as backup singers and engineers, FOOTBALL MONEY untidily fuses the yin of work with the yang of life, chronicling a dual-existence, unkempt instrumentalists moonlighting as undercompensated administrators by the harsh fluorescent light of day, borne back ceaselessly into the Greater Toronto Area by night.
Expanda Fuzz (Ott indie):
Expanda Fuzz was conceived attempting to rip apart a Pink Floyd song with a distorted bass and a fuzz-driven guitar through a ripped speaker cabinet...while playing to a Roland 404 sampler.
The result of that experiment can be heard on the duo’s new record ‘Bleuets’, where they showcase their brand of catchy, droney, post-punk songs that hook heavily into a psych-garage sound.
Think Kim Deal fronting the Velvet Underground, or Mary Timony jamming with Suicide. And while that initial Pink Floyd cover has yet to surface, many more Expanda Fuzz releases are planned for 2017.
