Think About Life / Clyffs @ Rancho Relaxo
I will always praise them: Think About Life, Montreal's No.1 Disco-Thrash Pop quartet (formerly trio) bring back the everlasting noise to Rancho Relaxo tomorrow night.
Think About Life are, by a ridiculous stretch, one of the most uplifting bands that have ever been conceived. Whether it's a hard-crunching tune to shake the bones, or a soft-heart tune to love everyone around times 1000, Think About Life simply rise above it with what they do. Their self-title record has nearly been out for a year and is already grabbing the attentive ones by the scruff of the neck, but in a welcoming way of course. The band are due to release a 6-track EP next month and a full-length by years' end. Oh, and they're going to Japan in a couple of weeks. You know you're the shit when you tour in Japan!
Accompanying Think About Life from Montreal are Clyffs (also known as CRYSTAL CLYFFS). An experimental side-project of hiding-in-the-side-project-shadows band godspeed you! black emperor, Clyffs combine a Garage and Psych-like sound together to create a sweaty and interesting live show. It is wise that they are touring with Think About Life. It's best that you listen, or at least waltz into Rancho Relaxo and see them.
To add to the formula, local 90-style-but-fresh indie clash band Germans run up the stage with songs about video games and why we should give a care. This band can sell anything. Aside from the fact that they've been signed to Arean Rock Records, they're good when it comes to switching instruments. A good warm-up band for the eve, I'd say. Finally, Edmonton, Alberta's Desiderata begins the night with indie-experimental waves. Also a good warm-up band.
