Wild Flag

Chicks with licks! After catching Wild Flag this June at Sled Island (review here), I have been waiting quietly and patiently for their debut album to be unleashed. And this week I wait no longer! Self-titled 'Wild Flag' is  arresting and playful; the power of  pop  rock and occasional angularity without descension into algorithms, staying steady in rock and rule.

Fav. Tracks: Something Came Over Me, Glass Tambourine, Endless Talk, Racehorse

Mystery Solved - Dead Voices alt country?

So it appears there is a band called 'Legs' but you won't find them on the interweb and not in your record store. They are the raw rough and tumble low fi alt country version of a band called 'Dead Voices' from Vancouver.

And although I can appreciate Dead Voices, I would not buy their album. Legs on the other hand are what I want, they had me from the get go. Allie Sheldon's stage presence and talents were showcased strongly at their Sled performance, I am not sure it would be the same had I caught them as Dead Voices. It would be a shame for that to be the last we hear from my favourite mystery band.

CJSW Call for Artists

A call for Funding Drive Artists!

CJSW is looking for artists interested in creating a work of art for our radio art installation series in support of our 2011 Funding Drive. We’re asking artists to turn a radio into a workable piece of art. There are no limits on the artist’s ability to be creative with their design. All we ask is the radio be operational afterward so it is still possible to tune into CJSW 90.9 FM. We will provide a small project budget to interested artists! Not only that--your work will be on display throughout Funding Drive and be part of our pledge incentive giveaways!

If you’re interested in being one of our Radio Art Project artists and/or have questions about the project please get in touch with Kat Lord at (403) 220-3902 or

Day Two: Rock me Gently/Good Vibrations

Day two of Sled Island Music and Arts Festival was like any other; full frontal nudity, Cyndi Lauper, and excessive body shattering good fun. Here are my highlights:

Lee Ranaldo (Central United Church, all ages) - Ranaldo took the stage after Zola Jesus did their interpretive flash mob all over the pews. He began by weaving himself through the crowd and creating his frequencies between and around the several amps set up in the church.What struck me immediately was the video projection behind Ranaldo. Festival organizers say the Ranaldo suggested a tape be played that his wife made, so they popped it in. Full frontal man bush and ta-tas for the all ages group in a church, perfect background scenery for the musings…

DEP Does Sled 2011: Day One

DEP reviews from day one at  Sled Island Music and Arts Festival in Calgary Alberta!! Days two and three coming up. KEEP CALGARY AWESOME!

DAY ONE: Deep Down Underground

I headed into the deep confines of Calgary's 'Distillery' on Wednesday night for the first time, having seen all the pics of previous years with drummers scaling the concave dome above the dance floor. My expectations were pleasantly confirmed. I grabbed a Mill St. and took it in as the club became hotter and more packed than I ever imagined I could stand. But I did stand, held the underground and here are my highlights for a night of music that changed my life.


OK people, I am about to disclose what I am not sure a lot of people know or understand. And to do so makes me feel gitty and somewhat perplexed, but I must I must...Because I believe it to be true and it is F-ING AWESOME.

Arcade Fire - We Salute You

As anyone who lives on the planet of pop knows, Arcade Fire and their album "The Suburbs" took home this year's Grammy for Album of The Year. All the controversy of the well loved Canadian indie rockers winning the big prize makes this DEP host smile with glee and question why it didn't happen 5 years ago. But alas, it has happened and the 'who's? and WTF's!' make it all the more exciting. Sort of reminiscent of 'Crash' winning Best Picture at the Oscars, all the confused sirlon wearing gaga's can pick up their dropped jaws and carry home their sorry sorry selves without their shiny shiny statues.
