NEW MUSIC

TAPEWORM is the latest project from my pal and local man, myth, and legend, Andre Cornejo. Using tape loops and samplers, he creates dark and experimental ‘beep boop noises’ inspired by the classic 404 sampler sound and deep cut sound bites.

HERE is the set he would have played at a gig that was recently cancelled due to the virus.

And HERE is a track he released on March 30th.

Trampoline released a very cool new music video! Watch it HERE!

Cause of Death is probably the youngest band in the Winnipeg metal scene but they are easily one of the most talented as well. They released their first EP back on the 24th, check it out on Spotify!

OTHER COOL THINGS

 

An Anishinaabe woodsman has taken his skills online to teach survival classes. Check out the CBC article HERE.

The Winnipeg Free Press has published a directory of the businesses that are still open. Check it out HERE.

And to close out this weeks batch of things, I thought I would leave you all with something I found some time ago, that’s been on the internet for longer than I know. If you love music and exploring new genres, you will love the limitless possibilities of Every Noise at Once.

That’s all for this week folks! Stay safe, stay home if you can, and wash your hands!
