DOMINIONATED the THIRD

We’re pleased as punch to bring you DOMINIONATED the THIRD, part three in our ongoing series of “compendiums of classic Canadian songs covered by contemporary Canadian artists”.

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.

There’s no giving us your email address, no cost for the download, and though we’d love Likes and Tweets, you don’t have to do that either. To get your free-for-all copy of DOMINIONATED the THIRD,  head over here and download it. Then crank up the tunes.

Big ups to Jenny Berkel, Century Palm, Creature Speak, Sarah Denim and Outre Lights, Evening Hymns, Nick Ferrio, Kalle Mattson, The Poolhall Riots, Quiet Parade, Scary Bear Soundtrack, Rae Spoon, Tearjerker, Twin Within, Bobby Uzöma, WindfallFound, Woodpigeon, Donovan Woods, and Nick Zubeck for going above and beyond the call of duty. You rock, some more gently than others, but you’re all stars in our world.

Have a great Canada Day weekend, friends, and thanks for being loyal followers of Quick Before It Melts.

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.
