• Reggie Watts Phillips Backyard Weekender, Victoria BC, July 21

    As originally published by Alan Ranta on Exclaim!How can you assign a rating to Reggie Watts? His irreverent, surreal style of whatever-the-hell-it-is-that-he-does is beyond classification by, or the comprehension of, normal human beings. There is beatboxing and looping, sure, and there are jokes, kind of, but it all blends together in his unconventional stream-of-consciousness style until it doesn't really matter anymore what it is. It's Reggie, and he is his own kind of genius. Most perfo
  • !!! Phillips Backyard Weekender, Victoria BC, July 21

    As originally published by Alan Ranta on Exclaim!Last time I saw Sacramento dance-punk torchbearers !!! (aka chk chk chk) was at the Sasquatch Festival in 2011, and frontman Nic Offer was almost out of hand. He shat all over the event's sponsors, and stretched security's nerves by running throughout the surging crowd and climbing parts of the stage that no one else would think to. It was a totally different story this time. He didn't insult Phillips Beer. In fact, he encouraged everyone to
  • I M U R Phillips Backyard Weekender, Victoria BC, July 21

    As originally published by Alan Ranta on Exclaim!If their set at the Picnic-er Stage was any indication, Vancouver electro trio I M U R probably aren't going to be just Vancouver's much longer. Flanked by Mikey J Blige on live production and electric guitar and Amine Bouzaher on electric violin and bass, lead vocalist and keyboardist Jenny Lea had them eating out of the palm of her hand. Even when she accidentally unplugged he own mic partway through "FFL" ("fight, fuck, love"), she maintained m
  • A Tribe Called Red Interstellar Rodeo, Edmonton AB, July 20

    As originally published by Levi Manchak on Exclaim!Interstellar Rodeo in Edmonton got off to a shaky start, delayed by a prairie storm, but even NASA has to take a rain check when it comes to weather. When the festival finally got off the ground, the crowd were eager to launch into cosmic festival mode. After short sets (due to the storm) from Jesse Jams and the Flams as well as Ruben and the Dark, A Tribe Called Red started as inauspiciously as the festival itself. Quickly though, a fast b

  • Keys N Krates Phillips Backyard Weekender, Victoria BC, July 20

    As originally published by Alan Ranta on Exclaim!The excitement was clearly buzzing through the crowd for Toronto's Juno-winning EDM trio Keys N Krates, composed of drummer Adam Tune, keyboardist David Matisse and turntablist Jr. Flo. With Tune working a synth drum kit and actual cymbals, Matisse taking various melodies on keys, and Jr. Flo squeezing in scratching, they're kind of like a digital version of Too Many Zooz. They're both similarly arranged trios of guys who make music based on elect
  • Too Many Zooz Phillips Backyard Weekender, Victoria BC, July 20

    As originally published by Alan Ranta on Exclaim!You got the sense, watching New York City's Too Many Zooz, that their practices at home have pretty much the same energy as their festival performances. The so-called brass house trio from the Big Apple features Leo Pellegrino on baritone saxophone, Matt "Doe" Muirhead on trumpet and David "King of Sludge" Parks with a bass drum augmented by tambourine, woodblock, cowbell and other percussive things by the look of it. Sludge dropped the mad beats,

    As originally published by Alan Ranta on Exclaim!Mohawk DJ, proud member of the Six Nations of the Grand River, and godfather of powwowstep, Dan General arguably turned the most heads as a member of A Tribe Called Red, but his personal resume is just as impressive. As DJ Shub, he's won a couple DMC championships and took the title as the top Red Bull Thre3style party-rocker in Canada in 2012, so he undeniably has the freshest of skills. He should have been on at 1a.m. at a forest rave, but

For Leon Vynehall's debut album for Ninja Tune, he took the opposite approach, writing a delicate history of his grandparents, and the result, Nothing Is Still, is a master class in storytelling and polish. Borne of dusty Polaroids from his grandparents
