[ My Dad vs. Yours ] Music begins where words end. With their first full length, [ My Dad vs. Yours ] force down post-rock barricades to a state where pop melodies take precedence over orchestral crescendos; where electronic beats, slide guitar and shoegaze co-exist in vibrant harmony where instrumentals can incite sing-alongs. Recorded over the marrow-chilling months of 2005-06, After Winter Must Come Spring is tulips pushing through a late thaw. It is the sound of intense expectation that focuses not on escape but upon communal re-alignment. Though not a movement, it draws upon the social energies behind one: sometimes sullen, often celebratory, always self-aware and questioning boundaries. " After Winter Must Come Spring " was recorded and mixed by Howard Bilerman & Efrim Menuck at Montreal’s Hotel2Tango [ Wolf Parade ]~ [ Arcade Fire ] ~ [ Godspeed You! Black Emperor ]. The first [ My Dad vs. Yours ] EP " Winning Hearts and Minds " earned the group sound indie credibility. They taped two songs for Canada’s underground art program, ZedTV; the album was released through Duotone Records in Japan; and it received regular airplay by American radio guru, Nic Harcourt.

Missed the Boat by Erik Kramer

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
