WHOOP-Szo (You've Changed Records)

WHOOP-Szo is a force of nature, sprung from a mixed-blooded experience of Canadian history with deep Anishinaabek roots. Thunderous and ground-breaking, harmonious and generative—a WHOOP-Szo show envelops audiences in an emotional weather-storm that dances conscientiously between anger and discipline, frustration and hope.
They tell us about colonial injustice loudly and punishingly, with haunting chord changes and monolithic distortion. They explore the possibility of wisdom and empowerment, with acoustic melodies that calmly find space within crushing layers of politics and sound.

On stage and off, WHOOP-Szo engage communities with a powerful synchrony that invites people to feel and to heal. They are passionate storytellers who knock loudly on the door, and will reward you tenfold for letting them in.

Forthcoming album Warrior Down harnesses their power into a concise, focused 35 minutes on wax, calling out both specific instances of injustice in Canadian history — such as the murder of bandleader Adam Sturgeon’s cousin by a Saskatchewan RCMP officer, or recalling Sturgeon’s grandfather’s experience at a Residential School (“Cut Your Hair”) — and broader, wider-reaching ones such as the experience of having race and culture assigned to you by a government that doesn’t represent you (“6.1/6.2”).

Zoon (Paper Bag Records)

(FKA Bloom) experimental folk/moccasingaze, Daniel Monkman crafts heavy, abstract galactic songs that reflect his incredibly unique path. With a forthcoming album on Paper Bag Records, Zoon is primed to explode onto the international music scene.

Heaby Medal

The latest project from Hamilton's multi-instrumentalist and no-shit taker Evelyn Charlotte Joe. Expect fresh anthems that'll cut to the core.
