WHAT: A video series by Mojito Mastering, in collaboration with Southern Souls, to get two bands/artists into the studio to collaborate on a cover, then capture the whole process on film.
WHY: Why?? Because it’s damn fun, that’s why! In fact, we can all take part in this project by suggesting some interesting musical pairings and the perfect cover song for them, and see if it actually works out. Leave your suggestions below and I’ll pass them along to the Mojito folks.
BADBADNOTGOOD >> "Time Moves Slow" (feat. Sam Herring)
TWIST >> "Soaked"
HEAVY ROTATION >>
WHOOP-SZO >> "Bmaadiziwin"
PREOCCUPATIONS >> "Anxiety"
THE BURNING HELL >> "Pop Goes the World"
FEIST >> "Flamenco for Gord"
PARTNER >> "Personal Weekend"
ISLANDS >> "No Milk, No Sugar""No Milk, No Sugar" is Nick Thorburn's pop nonpareil, heavy with hook and melody, and so effortlessly cool that every other songwriter aspiring to pop music perfection best pack up their gear and take up traffic cone collecting.
IVY MAIRI >> "All Around Me""All Around Me" by Toronto based singer/songwriter Ivy Mairi is our #NewFavouriteSong. Click the link to listen to it yourself.
LUKA >> "Why Don't You Go To Her"
SHIRLEY & THE PYRAMIDS >> "All The Time"Saskatoon's Shirley & The Pyramids wear their musical influences on the arm of their long-sleeved tee-shirts, but before you're quick to group them in with other neo-shoegazers, give a good listen to "All The Time", one of two advance singles from their recently released self-titled record. 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.
