A couple posts ago I listed off a few groups I’ve been keeping my ears to the ground for. Today I have updates on a couple of them. Unfortunately, it’s not all good news…
Last week Tim, Brielle and Jeff announced they are parting ways. Bruekke is no more. They were in the process of recording their first full-length, Once Around The Sun, which they described in the announcement as being a ‘clarifying experience’. Hopefully this won’t be the last we’ll hear from the members of this trio. Future developments will come by way of their facebook page which I’ve linked to below.
As opposed to a moment of silence, head over to bandcamp and give My Wolves a listen. If you like it, pick up a copy of their The Loft EP. You may not get another chance.

We’ll end on a happier note, thankfully. Unfortunately, Papermaps’ studio, Chemical Sound, closed earlier this year. More unfortunately, the Toronto-based 5-piece was part-way through recording their next full-length when this happened. He
re’s where the good side comes up. Given the creative shift that could occur with a change in venue, the band opted to wrap up what they already have and deliver it as a 6-track EP. Inferior Ghost hits the interweb August 14th and the streets 2 weeks later on the 28th. Now if you’re an early adopter and/or you like to save money (and who doesn’t?) you can pre-order the whole thing on 12-inch vinyl with a digital download for only $18. Be quick, though, because that price only applies to the first 50 pre-orders and they’re only pressing 300, all told.For complete details of the record I’ve linked to the official announcement below. For a free preview of the opening and closing tracks, There are Wolves and Reaction Formation, respectively, and to place your order hit up bandcamp.
