We're fresh off of a great run at Canadian Music Week 2014, where Canadian Musician had the chance to take in plenty of panels and sessions during the day and musical showcases at night.
We also connected with a slew of the artists performing during the 2014 festival, and are happy to bring you some highlights of those interviews in this week's show.
We'll check in with the likes of Magic!, Gloryhound, The Flatliners, Kristina Maria, T.Nile, and more, plus share some highlights from the event and give you a run down of the latest industry news from across the country and the world.
We had so much great content from Canadian Music Week that we figured we'd double down and bring you another best-of full of interviews from this year's showcasing artists.
This time around, we've got on-the-rise rock trio The Balconies, BC-based folkies Good for Grapes, country singer Jason Hastie, bouncy indie pop outfit BESTiE, and Toronto newcomers The Cruelty Party, featuring Alphonse Alixander Lanza III of Azari & III.
There's something for everyone, musically speaking, plus all the goods from around the industry - including more summer festival talk. (This summer is going to be an absolute blast for music fans.)
The Marvelous Beauhunks
Rickenbackers. Wardour Street. Energy. Oshawa.
The best Britpop what was never made in Britain.
Reformed in 2010, the Marvelous Beauhunks are power pop's most notorious treble-makers. With their sharply creased mod stylings, the Marvelous Beauhunks are the band Ronnie Kray might've formed with Vinnie Jones, but only Vinnie weren't 'avin' it, 'cause them lads is barmy, mate.
With a twenty-year pedigree, the Beauhunks' career includes festivals like NXNE, CMW, and a stint at the Cavern Club, Liverpool for the International Pop Overthrow - all complemented by a plethora of recordings, videos, and a book. Watch the cloth, moth.
Rock instrumental with musical influence from Rush, Eric Johnson, B.O.C.
