Hailing from Ontario, Canada, To the Lions is a 2nd-wave style hardcore band, openly against current trends, image conscious bands and fashion shows. No mascara here, folks. The quintet, featuring former members of Confine, Grade and SeventyEightDays, reminds some of Downset (minus the rapping), Earth Crisis and other acts from the early '90s. The band's bio sights Unbroken, Chokehold and Undertow as references to the band's passionate sound.
Plants and Animals are a Canadian indie-rock band from Montreal, composed of guitarist-vocalists Warren Spicer and Nic Basque, and drummer-vocalist Matthew Woodley. They are signed to Secret City Records. The first seeds of the band were originally planted on Canada’s salty-aired East Coast in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Young Warren C. Spicer and Matthew ‘the Woodman’ Woodley had begun playing together in high-school bands. The sea winds eventually carried them through the vast plains of Quebec to Montreal (a journey they would come to know intimately as the years wore on).
A balance of innovation and power-pop, Catlow is the new incarnation of Natasha Thirsk, lead-singer for indie-rock band The Dirtmitts. With accessible melodies and eccentric charm similar to Rilo Kiley, Blonde Redhead and The Breeders, "Kiss the World" is Catlow's debut album. (note)
This previous note by Diaelectric had erroneous information about the band/Artist Catlow. Catlow from Canada has asked Last.fm to give them control of their Catlow page under their name "catlow".
