In Local Music News...Les Jupes Finish New Record; Samson's New EP; Quinzy Offers Free Downloads; And More!

>> Thursday, 2 September 2010

First up, resident experimental-pop makers Les Jupes (above) have finished recording their latest album, Modern Myths; expect it to enter the world sometime in January ’11.

The ever-prolific John K. Samson has recently wrapped up another solo EP, Provincial Road 222, the second in a series of Extended Players exploring the streets and highways of Manitoba.  Road 222, if you’re unfamiliar, runs north and leads to Riverton, home of the delicious Integrity Foods. The EP is up for grabs on Epitaph’s site on September 21st in either 7-inch or digital download form.

Speaking of 7-inch records, local punk-rockers Propagandhi have just, just completed a “dream-come-through” split 7’ with Canadian trash icons Sacrifice. Sacrifice covered Rush’s “Anthem” while Propagandhi bravely took on Corrosion of Conformity’s “Technocracy”. The band is hoping to have copies available sometime in October.

When you’re sent digital downloads on a regular basis, it’s easy for them to get lost in the catacombs of a disorganized inbox (solution: I started using labels!).  Such was the case with Nestor Wynrush’s excellent live album, So High From The Lo, that’s available for free download here (it’s been out a few months).

Speaking of free downloads, pop-rockers Quinzy are posting either an unreleased demo or a live song on their Facebook page every week. For the non-Facebookers, you can still access the free music goods even if you don’t have an account.

And finally, if you’re into Twitter, here are some Winnipeg acts up for following:

Riverton is *also* the hometown of the NHL record holder for 'Most Goals Scored In One Playoff Season'.
