The shortstack Sessions #3: Sky

August 14, 2022

This is actually the second we recorded but Brian got lazy and edited things out of order. 

Sky was formed by James Renald and Antone Sicotte in Montreal.  Bonding  over 70s funk and various other genresthey quickly signed a deal and released Piece of Paradise with such hits as Love song and some kind of wonderful. For various reasons James Renald left and two other encarnations of sky formed but nothing compared to that first one. Please share with your pals and head to Apple and leave us a 5 star review!

Episode 26: Great Big Sea Part 1

May 23, 2022

Happy Long Weekend! Nothing  says start of summer like the may 24, cottages, BBQ's parties and Nothing says a party like Great Big Sea! Their blend of east coast traditionals and pop sensibilities made them one of the most popular Canadian acts from the 90s through to the end of their run. Their lovable personalities and high energy live shows  made them fan favorites... But why didn't they break more Outside of Canada? Well dive down the rabbit hole starting in part one we go from their self titled album to the sea of no cares.

The boys tried something new they recored outside so if you hear birds or dogs dont adjust your headphones. Also as you know the boys love their preamble so if you wanna jump into great big sea skip to 18-20 minutes.

Episode 22: Swollen Members: Part 1

November 27, 2021

Swollen Members are a group Consisting of Shane "Madchild" Bunting, Kiley "Prevail" Hendriks, DJ Rob the Viking and sometimes Daniel Denton AKA Moka Only. Formed in Vancouver, B.C. Have released nine albums. Their brand of Hip Hop cant be pinned down. A mix of alt hip hop with conscious lyrics, fun party music, aggressive beats and the occasional hype track . They were on top of Canada's hip hop scene Before the emergence of acts like Drake and the Weeknd. With Juno nominations, chart topping tracks, sell out tours and a sound that was accessible yet still differing them from contemporaries why didn't they reach the states? We don't answer that yet we focus on albums 1-4. Balance- Heavy.. Enjoy!
