“In any production, regardless of medium, what happens in pre-production can make or break the entire project. It sounds simple, but I cannot stress enough the importance of planning ahead. The sooner and farther out you can schedule the show, the better. Not only will the venue appreciate the lead time, but it will give you time to make changes when something inevitably goes wrong. For a release show in early April, we started booking in mid-February; and there are people who believe even that is cutting it close.”

By now you’ve heard about Return For Refund‘s newest release, the Lift You Up EP. After seeing the band live at their tour stop in Guelph, Canadian Beats took sometime to listen through the whole album, and write a comprehensive review! The blog commented on the band’s unique approach to recording the album live-off-the-floor, saying the resulting album is “ambitious and emotionally gripping with a supercharged hit of adrenaline!”. Canadian Beats also acknowledged how each track brings something new to the album, citing “Don’t You Say” as the most rock anthem-worthy, “Lift You Up” as most 90’s grunge reminiscent, and “My Gun” as their favorite music moment of the album.

The Fountainhead Focus recently took some time to check out our own HereComeHere‘s newest release, Chernobyl. “After starting with a much more pop-punk sound,” the blog commented, “the group (with a small lineup change) started to create something different – a more melodic, complex and even slightly darker sound.” The full article takes you track-by-track through the album, carefully studying each song. When discussing the album’s fifth track, “Sugarr”, the blog acknowledged a crucial factor about the bands progression. “Their songs have important lyrics,” noted Fountainhead, “lyrics that will stick in your head.” These lyrics, along with honing in on their sound, is what really sets this album apart from the band’s previous work.
