PSYCHE are Canada's best known Dark Synthpop act. The Electro-Pop pioneers who have been bringing their dramatic lyrical soundscapes with a touch of goth atmospherics, and crafty drum machine grooves to life for the past three decades!
Formed in the early 80s by ex-Men Without Hats guitarist Tracy Howe and Bill Vorn, Rational Youth was later joined by Kevin Komoda and went on to record arguably the greatest synthpop album Canada has ever seen with Cold War Night Life. A national tour and 20,000 copies later, the band broke up, a new band was formed, a new album was released, only to have the band break up again in 1986. Since then, Rational Youth has been revived several times with different line-ups, each time adding something wonderful to the mix, but always rooted in Howe's knack for melody and his remarkable vocal style.

The Jason Corbett-led outfit ACTORS are standing on the shoulders of titans with their brand of the style, and could almost be referred to as "post-post-punk". In a period where we narrowcast rather than broadcast so fans and new music-seekers can firmly plant themselves in a niche, Corbett takes swings at creating sounds and production techniques that one would not usually find in a starter package of cliché plugins and samples. Backed by a stoic yet playful backing band, the frontman shows an enthusiasm while performing and recording that often isn't seen or heard in his preferred genre.

UBK & MONSTER ENERGY PRESENT:
Music journalists typically describe Justins sound as melodic and tough with his music encapsulating both melody and emotional depth yet always with enough undeniable ass shaking properties to translate to the floor. Im always trying to find music for my DJ sets that rattles sound systems, but still has enough melody and interesting texture to expand your mind even if youre sitting at home on a snowy or rainy day.

Travis Egedy, a.k.a. Pictureplane, made his name chasing unpopular realities and alternate truths across various media. His gallery works, shown on both sides of the pond, collide familiar with fringe. His Alien Body clothing line offers a stylized study of symbology, the occult, and societal decay. And his music - blissed yet shadowy, swirling up vintage strains of house, hip-hop, and noise - treats electronics not as uncannily artificial, but as extensions of our more magical selves.

And his music - blissed yet shadowy, swirling up vintage strains of house, hip-hop, and noise - treats electronics not as uncannily artificial, but as extensions of our more magical selves. One could, if one was open to such things, visualize the Brooklyn-based artist's albums and their wild live performances as pathways to a rarer form of realness. Because while the Good Show tells us to "Trust No One," exceptions are granted to men with X-Files tattoos.

Coursing with a speedy vibe of ‘60s pop and garage rock with fuzzy bass, horns, and synth as accelerants, The Wet Secrets’ latest, The Tyranny Of Objects, is an instantly catchy blast of rock n’ roll energy with candy-coated hooks that revels in its little oddities.
The Tyranny Of Objects came late, but its combination of catchy, hook-laden rock n’ roll and unexpected and jarring freakouts with endless energy make it a top contender for Alberta’s best record this year. It’s like a dance party on a comet with all your favourite weirdos.
