""Marble Attic"(album)"

Compelling, charming, and noisy, this 12-song debut CD from Brampton-based band Marble Attic is a veritable audio smorgasbord of goodness ripe and ready to be peeled back and exposed. The self-recorded project belonging to multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Fred Yurichuk took three years to complete. Despite this, the album sounds refreshingly new with the occasional tip of the hat to its obvious and not-so-obvious influences. Pavement comes to mind, as do a few other low-fi bedroom pop outfits, but it’s difficult to pigeon-hole this eclectic quintet into one genre or another. From the opening track, 17, the insanity begins with multiple drum loops, hooky guitar riffs, audio samples, sugary-sweet boy/girl vocals, and infectious melodies all playing off one another. It’s as though the band managed to fuse together a whack of simple melodies into one song. While the disc’s remaining songs – including the stellar All That I Deserve – carry on in the same vein, repetition doesn’t hurt this recording so much as it enhances it. Sadly, Marble Attic no longer exists. The group disbanded shortly following this CD was released. But for anyone who appreciates honest-to-goodness alt-pop that hasn’t been tainted by mainstream trends of the day, this CD is a must-have. Good luck finding it. – Liam Lahey

"Being There"

Act: Beekeepers Society
Venue: Savannah
Date & Time: Saturday, June 10, 2006 @ 11pm
Brampton, Ontario's Beekeepers Society offered up a set of Smiths-influenced rock. The lead singer reminded me of a very thin and muted Jack Black, which is kind of ironic because the band's music could easily be described as “sad bastard music.” Still, although a drummer was sorely lacking from the group, they were pretty good. - Adam Anklewicz

"Keepin' It Fresh w/ The Beekeepers"

So, Brampton's friendliest band, the Beekeepers Society, is at again -- the formidable fivesome have just posted a new/old song on their myspace site; and it's just in time for the long weekend (well played, guys). The pop gem, called, "Turn up the gain" is everything you'd expect from the 'keepers: smart, smooth and uhhh, really fucking cool.

Word on the street (Nelson St.) is they're currently recording a follow-up disc to last year's First Year Film School.

Oh yeah, one more thing: Have you seen the stills for their new video? Check it!
