NEW ROCK RELEASES OF THE WEEK - APRIL 19


The Belle Brigade - The Belle Brigade
THE BELLE BRIGADE - THE BELLE BRIGADE (Warner Bros)
Inspired by siblings, Barbara and Ethan Gruska's love for Fleetwood Mac, Simon & Garfunkel, the Beatles, and Stevie Wonder, the Belle Brigade's artfully arranged, freewheeling songs brim with breezy, California melodies and bracing pop harmonies, fueled by the driving rhythms Barbara plays on drums.

As performed by Ethan and Barbara and their talented group of backing musicians, songs like 'Losers,' 'Sweet Louise,' 'Where Not To Look For Freedom,' 'Lucky Guy,' and 'Lonely Lonely,' are tailor-made for road-tripping up the coast with the car top down, sunshine on your face, and the music blasting into the roar of the wind. Indie Rock.


Broken By Fire - Broken By Fire
BROKEN BY FIRE - BROKEN BY FIRE ( Mobius Trip)
Nestled among the towering cedars and scrubby undergrowth of Vancouver's Westside, the four members of Broken By Fire have been busy tilling the fertile soils of their sonic garden to yield their self-titled EP. What originally began as a casual recording project between friends has quickly ripened into an aural mosaic of unique songs that is as dynamic and diverse as the individual ethnicities, life experiences and musical influences of the band members themselves.

The album is a strangely cohesive, stylistic and trans-genre voyage that was co-produced, mixed and engineered by recent Nimbus graduate (and student of Garth Richardson's), Braden Kwasnicia. It is a small taste of a broader collection of recordings that will constitute the band's eagerly anticipated, upcoming full length release. Saturated with catchy hooks, thoughtful lyrics and clever arrangements, Broken By Fire is sure to please and will undoubtedly leave listeners beckoning for more.
Indie Rock


Duff McKagan's Loaded - The Taking
DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED - THE TAKING (Eagle Rock Records)
Duff McKagan is a founding member of both Guns 'n' Roses and Velvet Revolver. He has sold over 100 million albums in his career. The Taking is the brand new studio album from Duff McKagan's Loaded. The album features 11 new songs, which continue the band's trademark blend of hard rock with a punk edginess that makes them instantly identifiable. 

The songs were written over a period of time in late 2009/early 2010 and the band went into the studio in August 2010 with renowned rock producer Terry Date (Slipknot, Pantera etc). The result is Loaded's most accomplished and most hard hitting album to date. Hard Rock
