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. Read the article here to get their full analysis of the album!

Ships Have Sailed have left the comfort of the West Coast to head out on an East Coast Tour hitting both Somerville and Cambridge. Vanyaland got the inside scoop on what it’s like to break down each show to cater to the audience.
“We are able to cater to a wider variety of venues and really tailor our set to the show we’re playing. We’ve been playing full-scale sets, but here and there we’ve been stripping down to ‘almost acoustic’ and playing all the tracks off Whispers as well as some of the softer stuff off ‘Someday’… it’s really gratifying to see people respond to the range we can offer, and it helps keep the sets fresh for us as well!”

“This show was a lot of different things for us; our first time in Oregon, our first show in Oregon, our most flexible promoter (double booked the night, but moved things around so events happened,) and a reunion.”
