CD REVIEW: Boxer the Horse – Would You Please

Comprised of lead singer and guitarist Jeremy Gaudet, drummer Andrew Woods, Isaac Neily on keyboard and Richard MacLeod on bass, Boxer the Horse is a home-grown Canadian band with lots of kick. The boys hail from Charlottetown, where the music is crude and the coastal vibe is real.

CD REVIEW: Chemical Brothers- Further

Released earlier this year, the Chemical Brothers' seventh effort, Further, can start to sound like a concert album after a few plays. Unlike many of the Brothers' earlier releases, the album captures the raw intensity and structureless flow of a live set, filled with unexpected drops, blips, and volume shifts.

CD REVIEW: Sweet Thing- Sweet Thing

With their self-titled debut, it's easy to see that Toronto's Sweet Thing have Top 40 ambitions. Whether or not they'll get there remains to be seen. The album certainly contains elements that suggest they will: the punchy guitars of "Gun," the shimmering synths of "Lazy Susan," and the soaring vocals of "A Change of Seasons" are all perfectly pop rock enough to satisfy any fan of the genre, but they still have a long way to go.

Summer Entertainment Report Cards: CDs – Best Coast – Crazy For You

If you believe the hype (and the blogs), California's Best Coast have made a life-changing, must-own debut record in Crazy For You. I'm not as convinced. Sure, frontwoman Bethany Cosentino and partner Bobb Bruno have crafted a warm, hazey, washed-out record with reverb-soaked vocals and some pretty killer melodies, but that can describe most noisy, pop-punk garage bands operating today.

Summer Entertainment Report Cards: Concerts – SSMU Frosh

On Sunday night SSMU froshies were treated to one final night of entertainment, a concert starring Torontonians k-os and Keys N Krates. Keys N Krates featured a drummer, keyboardist, and DJ with a laptop and turntables.

Summer Entertainment Report Cards: Concerts – Lollapalooza

Since becoming permanently stationed in Chicago's Grant Park in 2005, Lollapalooza has consistently delivered two things: impressive lineups and droves of people looking to see said lineups. This year featured hugely popular artists such as Green Day, Lady Gaga, and Arcade Fire alongside only slightly lesser-known but no less awesome acts, including Mumford & Sons, Chromeo and Wolfmother.

Summer Entertainment Report Cards: Concerts – NXNE 2010

This year's North by Northeast music festival featured close to 650 bands on over 40 stages throughout Toronto. Often playing second fiddle to the similarly named, but unrelated, South by Southwest festival, 2010 seemed to be NXNE's coming-of-age. From scoring big-name headliners like Iggy and The Stooges and De La Soul, as well as a good number of up-and-coming buzz bands like Surfer Blood and Avi Buffalo, this year's line-up demanded attention.
