Century Palm has announced a Canadian tour in anticipation of the release of their new EP “Meet You.” Which will release on March 10th. Century Palm was initially formed by vocalist/guitarist Andrew Payne in 2014 following the dissolution of Ketamines, a cult favorite garage-pop band founded by bassist Paul Lawton that featured 3/4ths of the eventual members of Century Palm (Lawton, Payne, Penny Clark & Jesse Locke) in one or other of its various iterations.
Fresh off his debut album titled by the same name, NAV is poised to have a big year in 2017. After increasing his exposure significantly in 2016 by appearing on the Travis Scott song “Biebs in the Trap” the pill popping Soundcloud rapper came out strong on his first studio album.

They don’t want to be considered political, but sometimes their opinions can’t help but bleed into their art as humans just trying to talk to other humans, a spirit rather than a manifesto.
Grimes has been on a tear since releasing her latest masterpiece Art Angels. In this video “Kill V.Miam” Grimes plays a gang leader singing amongst masked dancers in what seems to be an abandoned Subway Station in a post Underground transit era. Instead she opts to ride with her girls in a flying car and head to what seems to be a blood soaked zombie rave( My favourite Clip).
My dad used to work for Tiny Mix Tapes. It was, and still is, a respectable review website. He specialized in music reviews, something I never really took into consideration at the time. I recently read through some of his old material, some of which are rave reviews of The Decemberists, Ghostface Killah, OutKast, and The Black Keys’ early work, and I noticed a common trend.
Walking from the embassy suites to the venue I was immediately struck by the irony of the country flags from around the world lining the Benjamin Franklin Parkway leading up to the Made in America festival. The road was full of vendors selling bootleg printed T-shirts, pretzels, water, Gatorade, ice cream and whatever other drunken delicacies they could think of.
