Thanks! I feel like if I explain things the way that helped me, it would help others.

Wintersleep

http://music.cbc.ca/#/artists/Wintersleep

and

http://www.facebook.com/wintersleep

Loel Campbell – drums, guitar
Paul Murphy – guitar, vocals
Tim D'eon – guitar, keyboards
Mike Bigelow – bass guitar, keyboards
Jon Samuel – keyboards, backing vocals, guitar


Formed in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 2001 this band's 2nd CD Untitled (released in 2005) echoes the  anthem rock sounds of Rush.

- Lip Stick

- Jaws Of Life - crank up the volume to get that Wall of Sound effect, underscored with a fat bass

- Faithful Guide - a quieter song of loss that rocks out after the break.

- Danse Macabre - picks up on the heavy rock theme from the end of Faithful Guide and soars upwards with great great drumming, especially in the change ups.

- Listen [Listen, Listen] - a sober, introspective, haunting song to a lost love


Also, from their 1st CD, Wintersleep (self titled - released 2003) give a listen to

- Sore

- Orca - monster guitars tread here

And on a lighter note from Welcome to the Night Sky (2007)

- Weighty Ghost -  a song of release Wintersleep - Weighty Ghost

- Dead Letter & the Infinite Yes - a song of recovery

Next their 2010 CD - New Inheritors

- Black Camera - song of panicked guilt

And finally their latest CD Hello Hum (2012)
- In Came The Flood - almost spiritual

- Resuscitate

- Nothing Is Anything (Without You) - a happy note to end on.

ボクのゲームSmile!の最新バージョン(v1.46beta)は Google Playでアップロードしました。Smile!をためしてみて。

The latest version (1.46 Beta) of my game Smile! is up on Google Play. Give it a try. 

Smile! is an age guessing game in English or Japanese. You try and guess the ages of real people. You can also see how old everyone thinks you are.

The Balconies
http://music.cbc.ca/#/artists/The-Balconies

Solid rock chords and rhythms matched with a trained operatic singer who has Pat Benatar's eyes and voice.


Jacquie Neville Guitar, Voice
Liam Jaeger Drums, Voice
Stephen Neville Bass, Voice

Yes - Stephen and Jacquie are brother and sister. And Liam is Jacquie's boyfriend.

Our samplings this time are all videos. 

Serious Bedtime The Balconies "Serious Bedtime" Official Music Video
A fun quirky flirtatious number, with a funky bass line.

Battle Royal http://vimeo.com/8721479
This video version is very different than their CD version. For one thing, there are no drums as Liam plays acoustic guitar. A much softer and more melodic song. Shot in one take in someone's very narrow 2nd floor home hallway.

Ghost Fever The Balconies - Ghost Fever : Audiotree Live
This is a live studio recording. In the chorus Jacquie really sings out.
