There are still some people who don’t like the way Sally walks but Toronto’s HSY (“hussy”) will show you why Sally is very much someone of value. This is the group’s first new music since their 2013 EP and while this is part of a new single, there will hopefully be more music sometime this year. You can check out more of their music by going through their Bandcamp page.

“Sally” will be released by Buzz Records very soon, and they are heading to Austin this year for the SXSW extravaganza.

VIDEO: Weaves’ “Take A Dip”

With CMJ on their minds this week, Weaves prepared a video by heading into a church and/or temple for musical worship with their video “Take A Dip” and when I dip, you dip, we dip, including Weaves.

You may or may not see them in clothes of worship this week, but if you are in NYC, find out where they’re playing and with whom… well, below:

October 15… Brooklyn, NY (Ran Tea House (Force Field PR showcase) {8:00pm} *
October 18… New York, NY (Santos Party House (Rice + Cheese showcase) {8:00pm} #

* = w/ Joanna Gruesome, The History of Apple Pie, Celestial Shore, etc.
# = w/ Saul Williams, Odonis Odonis & HSY

VIDEO: Odonis Odonis’ “Are We Friends”

The audio and visuals in “Are We Friends” is straight out of the 1980’s, when you could harden up your sound with mechanical beats and create a video by fooling around with your cable box. Dean Tzenos, Denholm Whale and Jarod Gibson know exactly what they’re doing, and as Odonis Odonis they’re going to take those things to CMJ next week. They’ll hit the road in Canada for a small handful of shows in late November:

October 17… New York, NY (Shea Stadium) (IMPOSE + Terroreyes + The Needle Drop showcase) ~
October 18… New York, NY (Santos Party House) (Rice and Cheese showcase) ^
October 19… New York, NY (2 Havemeyer St.) (My Social List day party) *

VIDEO: HSY’s “Tartar Mouth”

The debut EP from HSY (“hussy”) was released yesterday on Buzz Records, and the drooling power of the band is shared in their video for “Tartar Mouth”. You can stream the EP in full for listening before you decide to purchase it.

SOME STUFFS: HSY’s self-titled EP now streaming in full

We’re a week away from Buzz Records releasing the self-titled extended play from HSY but until then, enter the virtual listening booth and play it in full, free of charge.

The band are ready to do a number of shows in Canada next week and next month, being joined by a nice group of other artists along the way. Click here to follow their path, which will hopefully motivate you to check them out yourself.

SOME STUFFS: HSY allow you to have “Tartar Mouth”

 photo HSY_old_zpsb4db2d22.jpg
The band’s self-titled debut EP will be released two weeks from out, and when I say two weeks from now, I mean literally 14 days from now, as in September 17th from now. The EP is not called From Now, it is self-titled and in their case, the they is/are HSY and that means the EP is called HSY.

Now that we have that out of the way, Buzz Records are in charge of its release and you can listen to their raw and dirty garage grit with a song called “Tartar Mouth”, which fortunately lacks a scent. It does have a sound, so you can listen to it below. For more music, head to the band’s official Bandcamp page.

The Toronto band will be doing a number of shows in Canada in a few weeks (from now), but will make a stop in Brooklyn during that time. The road adventures will end with HSY appearing at the Hailfax Pop Explosion festival.

SOME STUFFS: They’re called HSY, and that’s good enough for me

HSY. This is pronounced “hussy”, a word that may not be used as much by today’s generation but one that still has a number of different connotations. Or maybe I’m wrong, maybe it is indeed used today and people are being bossy (or is that bsy) about it. In this case, HSY are from Toronto and like to punk things up with a bit of sludge to show how musically dirty they are. They were able to obtain director Chris Chami to shoot a video for “Milk Chug”, a song that will appear on the band’s forthcoming Buzz Records‘ self-titled EP, The video is lo-fi and almost looks as if it was sourced from bad convenience store surveillance footage, but it somehow matches. HSY will be released on September 17th.

To hear more, they have a small number of releases available for listening and purchasing purposes on their Bandcamp page.

If you’re in New York City next month, you can catch them at Death By Audio in Brooklyn on September 21st, playing with Odonis Odonis and Eraas.

VIDEO: Weaves’ “Motorcycle”

Jason Harvey is the man responsible for this very cool animated video by Weaves, who made this video specifically to promote as their latest single. Vocalist Jasmyn Burke and guitarist/bassist Morgan Waters are the core of the combo and along with drummist Spencer Cole and organator Bram Gielen, they made this song together for you to hear, and now see. (In a live setting, bass duties are handled by Zach Bines.)

If you are in or near Montreal at the end of September, they’ll be playing at Club Lambi for the Buzz Records/NeXT Showcase. Odonis Odonis, HSY, Comanechi, and PyPy are also scheduled to perform there.
