Ducks Unlimited
Toronto-based musician and jack of all trades Tom Mcgreevy is the brainchild behind the brand new band Ducks Unlimited. While they work on an EP to bring their music to people outside their new live performance sphere, we’ve got the exclusive premiere of their new song "Age Of Entertainment".
50's doo-wop meets 80s synth is quite possibly the best way to describe the track, as Tom’s vocals hit almost otherworldly sound spaces with their slow, reverb-filled drawl. The drawl is befitting of the subject matter, as we’re taken on a journey that leads to a very dark place.

Forming in 2010, Casey MQ, Jonathan Milner, Miles Gibbons, Alexei Orechin and Kamilah Apong ventured into the depths of Casey’s basement. They made their way back out by becoming Unbuttoned, creating music that was a fresh alternative - funky sounds of R&B and Pop, supported by undertones of hip hop and electronica. Their music has challenged the tunnel vision of genre labels and highlights the beauty of crossover music.
Unbuttoned spends their time crafting their album Casey’s MQ self-made Level Me Studios. Their debut EP Electric Kingdom, released independently in North America and through P-Vine Records in Japan, received attention and guidance from both Kevin Killen (Grammy award winning engineer/producer) and the late John Carter (Capital Records). "Casey's development as a unique songwriter has been evident to me for the last six years. With his latest collaboration – the beautifully crafted "Unbuttoned - Electric Kingdom" Casey delivers a seven song EP that is magical, innovative and belies his age as a songwriter. Ones to watch", says Killen.
Unbuttoned’s movements have not gone unnoticed across the globe, receiving attention and airplay from various media outlets in Poland, Spain, and Germany, as well as CBC's Jian Ghomeshi. Unbuttoned plans to expand even more so with their upcoming sophomore release, "planes", available June 24th, 2014.

ce qui nous traverse - & The Mighty River
The two formations from Montreal offer a dense sonic experience at the juncture of experimental music and harmonic getaways, with fugitive political breakthroughs.
A bit more than a proposition, - ce qui nous traverse - takes hold on what hangs around by a play of atmospheres, detailed wanderings. After two EPs (eponym (2013) ; "À l’écart" (2014)), the guitar duo has produced "des lignes", a first album released on Cuchabata records (Oct. 2016).
The Mighty River’s latest project is a concept album on the problem of whiteness and racialization. The band released their second album, "Horsebird", in July 2014, and are currently in the studio with their third album to be released on Acre Alley records.
