August 30th, 2016 / Comments Off on New track from The Green Children – Dreamers / by Mog/
Formed in 2006, The Green Children met whilst studying at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. That same year the duo shot a music video in Bangladesh to celebrate the work of Professor Muhammad Yunus, the father of microcredit and founder of Grameen Bank. In December 2006, The Green Children released a fundraising CD/DVD entitled Hear Me Now throughout Norway. Through sales and donations from around the world they raised $400,000 for one of the first eye hospitals in rural Bangladesh. The hospital was opened on May 12th 2008 by The Green Children and Professor Muhammad Yunus, the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner. Yunus initiated this project with Grameen to save the sight of many of his countrymen and women.Their first self-produced album Encounter was released in October 2010, to great critical acclaim. Rolling Stone described it as a collection of “Searching dance-pop ballads from elfin dreamers…Encounter glides by like Lady Gaga on a unicorn. Sunde gives synth-diva histrionics a mystical spritz, singing about dragons and black magic over skittering electro beats.” Reema Kumari Jadeja from MOBO wrote that, “The Green Children masterfully sprinkle sincere soul and magic into a music scene that requires some much needed fantasy and romanticism… The emerald duo’s debut is an audio fairy-tale that confiscates all grips on reality and leaves one hopelessly daydreaming.” The duo’s second full length album, entitled Connection, was released in the USA and Canada on July 23rd, 2013 through Amoeba Music. In November 2014 they released their single and video, “Outline”. This space themed video supported the work of The Planetary Society and including partners such as Bill Nye and Yale University. The past year has seen The Green Children support the work of charitable organization ‘New Alternatives’ with a concert in NYC benefiting LGBT Homeless Youth. They were interviewed live by The Huffington Post about the concert and their continual charity work. “Dreamers” is their newest single, released this August.

August 30th, 2016 / Comments Off on New single from The Alpacas – Wax / by Mog/
The Alpacas are Nick Harper, Greg Lee, Brett Garner, and Brent Lee: a four-piece rock and roll band from Barrie, Ontario. The Alpacas aim to write honest, hooky, and heavy tunes that strike a balance between raw and refined. The Alpacas live show is loud and quiet, fast and slow, tidy and unkempt –– but above all, The Alpacas look to create some good time vibes and entertain an audience.In some ways, our new single is about being happiest playing a gig. But it’s also about how being social when you don’t always want to be is a trade off for doing what you love. Getting what you want also means keeping yourself in check. Musically, it’s as if Johnny Ramone joined The Strokes as a 3rd guitarist. Lyrically it’s also inspired by the song ‘Left of the Dial’ by The Replacements from their 1985 album ‘Tim’.Our forthcoming album was produced, engineered, and mixed by Kevin Dietz (The Cranberries, Alexisonfire, Placebo, Nelly Furtado). It was recorded at Metalworks in Toronto and Slipone Digital in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada.
