    Casey Mecija has been a fixture in Toronto’s music scene for the last decade fronting the orchestral-pop band, Ohbijou.

    Psychic Materials, Mecija’s first solo album, is a return to the DIY aesthetic that she long ago began to craft. It is brave in its address of queerness, diaspora, history and love. She offers her listeners assurance that music can give language to emotions not yet named

    Canada became a hotbed for indie rock in the early 2000s, with multiple bands finding their footing in cities like Montreal and Ottawa before spreading their music to other areas. The Acorn differentiated itself from the pack by using acoustic instruments and conceptual themes, creating a sound that owed as much to experimental folk as rock & roll.

    Diet Cig are here to have fun. They’re here to tear you away from the soul-sucking sanctity of your dumpster-fire life and replace it with pop-blessed punk jams about navigating the impending doom of adulthood when all you want is to have ice cream on your birthday. Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums) have been playing music together ever since Luciano interrupted the set of Bowman's previous band for a lighter. The New York duo have since released the infectious, 2015 ‘Over Easy’ EP that introduced consistent sing-a-long lyrics with thrashing drums and strums that never held back.
