DOMINIONATED the THIRD

DOMINIONATED the THIRD:
A third compendium of classic Canadian songs
covered by contemporary Canadian artists

Quick Before It Melts proudly presents DOMINIONATED the THIRD, part three in a series of music compilations where contemporary Canadian artists to cover their favourite Canadian songs.

The concept is simple: we ask a bunch of artists to choose a favourite Canadian tune and give us their interpretation of it. The execution is mind-boggling. I can’t thank this year’s contributors enough for the time and dedication they’ve put into re-interpreting these songs, all so that we can release them as a free download for 149 days (one for each of Canada’s years) to kick off the Summer of ’16 and Quick Before It Melts’ 10th anniversary celebrations.

In it, you'll hear a the broad strokes of someone who's explored a range of sonic influencers--from 13th Floor Elevators to Ride, The Velvet Underground to Atlas Sound--and is now drilling down through the gauzy haze of guitar drone to find their essence, their truth.
