Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 4, 2014 by TheManicBlogger

It’s summer. So instead of  our usual Indie album picks for June, the staff at I Can’t Believe My Earz has come up with a list of songs that are a must for your summer music playlist. Very cool.

 

XPRIME– ‘Early To The Sun’        

 With harmonies  that rival The Beach Boys, and melody lines that just don’t quite,  this song does everything right. A foot tapping, hand clapping, sing along song if ever there was one.

 

 

 

GIGI-‘Put Your Freakin Hands Up

This song delivers an incredible rhythm, and an insanely infectious hook. Destined to be playing in your head for a long while. In the meantime, it will have you dancing in the streets.

 

 

 

 

THE MINNOWS-‘Time Flies’

Amazing track that more that stands the test of time. Cool harmonies, a wonderful melody, and a great story. The keyboards are a standout. This is my ‘have a beer or 2 and sit by the pool’ song.

SEAPONY-‘What You Wanted’

A way cool 60’s beat, terrific riff, great changes, and sweet vocals make this a must have summer track. The harmonies are wonderful, and the melody will have you singing and dancing up and down  the beach.

 

 

 

 

THE AFTER HOURS-‘Going To The Go-Go’

A terrific rock song with great harmonies, wonderful guitar licks, and some way cool harmonica. Go on and put the top down and crank this one up..way loud.

 

 

 

 

THE EASY OUTS-‘Come on Come On

Dynamite garage rock. Sweet guitar licks, wonderful vocals, a great  melody, and a driving beat. Jump in the GTO and Come On Come On…..

 

 

 

 

 

THE LOST BOYS-‘I Fall For Everyone’

Wonderful 1960’s melody, with cool guitar riffs, great changes, and sweet harmonies.  A perfectly wonderful pop song that will make you feel like London, 1965.

 

 

 

Enjoy the summer with I Can’t Believe My Earz. Get the best music you’ve never heard all summer long.

JANE’S PARTY: Hot Noise

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 3, 2013 by TheManicBlogger

Home grown Toronto band, and Cameron House regulars Jane’s Party have recently completed their album, “Hot Noise” as the follow up to their 2009  debut, “The Garage Sessions” and the 2011 EP, “Jane’s Party EP“.  Released on Cameron House Records, this Indie band  reminds us what 1960’s pop-rock sounds like.

jane's partyThe opening track, “Palm Reading“, is a wonderful summer patio sitting or driving with the top down song. The light, willowy keys and emphatic drum shots highlight this track. . “Dutch Blue Sky” has a subtle country feel, with twangy vocals and guitars that conjure images of the railroad. The Young Rascals could have recorded “Loose Ends” in a 1960’s New York session. The bluesy tone and carnival feel of “Miles Away” and the subtle funk of “Reds and Blues” demonstrates the band’s ability to write in different genres while staying true to their roots. “Anytime Now” is a classic pop song, encouraging you to clap your hands and tap your feet. “Seasons” has  time signature changes, ethereal keyboards and a very heavy guitar riff, and asks the question, When did The Kinks meet The Beach Boys?  “Meet Me Halfway” shines as the best track on the album. This tune embraces a guitar solo that should be on a Lovin’ Spoonful album, excitingly simple drumming, basic production values and a Beatlesque ending .  What more could anyone want in an album? Every song has wonderfully full and simple harmonies. Not a bad one to be found here.

jane's party1I don’t know where I have been for the past four years and why I was not invited, but Jane’s Party is the event of the season. These guys can write songs with intricate melodies and sophisticated harmonies and make it seem simple. They understand that less is more. They value the song.They have an innate sense of classic pop and have a whole lot of fun making music. With influences such as The Beatles, The Band and The Kinks, what else should we have been expecting?

You can see Jane’s Party playing everywhere as they head out to promote their album. To listen to them, follow the link below:
