Ottawa’s Kalle Mattson bring acclaimed 2012 release “Lives in Between” back on the road following viral success of “Water Falls” video, continue to prepare 2013 release produced by The Wooden Sky’s GavinGardiner.
In 2012, Kalle Mattson released an EP titled “Lives in Between” on Winnipeg’s Parliament of Trees, embarked on a tour of Eastern Canada, released a video for their song “Water Falls” which quickly went viral, and started recording their third LP with The Wooden Sky’s Gavin Gardiner producing. The five song “Lives in Between” EP was reviewed on Guardian UK, American Songwriter, and Exclaim saying that the EP “…demonstrates what makes Kalle Mattson’s music so engrossing: slack guitar, pop (rock)-and-lock pacing and devil-may-care vocals.”
To promote the EP, the band enlisted the help of high school friend Kevin Parry, who previously made the very successful “Thick as Thieves” video for the band, to create a video for their first single “Water Falls”. “In “Water Falls”, the viewer is sling shot around San Francisco using stop-motion animation on a very large scale in a project coined “Hypno SF”. The video received one hundred thousand views in its first week after a debut on NPR’s All Songs Considered, was named one of the top 10 alternative music videos by Vimeo, and received attention from the likes of The Atlantic, CBS News, Wired, CBC Radio 3, AOL’s Spinner, and had The Huffington Post asking “Is this the coolest music video of 2012?”

Krief – THURSDAY, SEPT. 13th
Guitarist for The Dears, Patrick Krief made his frontman mark with his solo project Black Diamond Bay. The April 2012 release of Hundred Thousand Pieces (Pirates Blend), presented the Montrealer at his finest, with beautifully heartbreaking, cinematic arrangements, and soulful lyrics and songwriting. Though Krief performed almost everything himself during the recording of the album (drums, piano, keys, bass, guitar, percussion, and vocals), he takes to the stage with a full band during his live shows, kicking his ornately instrumental music up a notch, creating a fuller, rocking sound, jam‐packed with soul. Have a look at Krief’s online concert series for a little taste of his music live off the floor.
Tickets: $12 available @ Streaming Cafe Time: 8pm

Wind Up Radio Sessions are a finely woven fabric that write and perform folk rock songs with charming arrangements and intimate lyrics. Original members Matt Lazenby, Marc Kiely, and Dan Kiely released their debut album Red Brick House in 2010 to much acclaim. Since then, the band has kept their colour vibrant, establishing themselves in their home base of Montreal and performing across eastern and central Canada.
Wind Up Radio Sessions spent much of 2011 and early 2012 writing and recording new material, between their jam-space launderette and Montreal’s Digital Bird Studios. The result of this work is Bird Eyes, a nine song album which sees the group evolving their blend of compact arrangements soaked with memorable hooks and melodies. With the recent introduction of new member, Dave Crosbie, the four piece is set to release Bird Eyes and take off on a coast-to-coast Canadian tour and bird-watching expedition.
