Astro Coast

Surfer Blood
Astro Coast
(Kanine Records, 2009)

8/10

Surfer Blood’s reverb-laden vocals, echo guitar effects, and youthful harmonies have a 70s pop feel that will leave you humming along with every verse and chorus. Despite having a bit of an old-school vibe, there’s an undeniable innocence to Surfer Blood. The kind of innocence that’s dying to be lost, like a 12-year-old kid realizing how much fun being bad is.
Even if they hail from Florida, this young band shows a definite brit-pop influence. That and they probably listened to a lot of old Weezer.
Astro Coast has that brave new world feeling; the kind teenagers often get before they grow old and become jaded. All in all, a nice way to start off the decade.

Trial Track: “Floating Vibes”

Restaurant La Bodega falls short

La Bodega has been around Montreal for about thirty years, a veteran of the restaurant business. It specializes in traditional Spanish cuisine, and no, it's nothing like Mexican food. My friends and I decided to go out for a nice dinner during the holidays, and since two of us had been in Spain this past summer and had thoroughly enjoyed the food, we decided to hit a Spanish restaurant and make a night of it.

Out of this World

The Year is 3982, My timepiece alerted me at the usual hour so I woke up and dragged myself out of my resting apparatus, everyday starts like this, so dull, so boring. The steel doors closed behind me as I got into the sonic shower. After about thirty nanoseconds I activated the liquid crystals to cleanse my body.
