Paper Fairy play footsie in new video for "We Laugh," plays Berlin 12.8

Paper Fairy returns with a video for the new single "We Laugh", featuring project mastermind Chris Gaskell and a whole lot of feet. The single comes from the NYC-based band's Tautology EP, a follow-up to last year's Haunter Haunted. On Tautology, Gaskell's avant-garde pop creates a dialogue between the concepts of the real self and the performed self. The video for "We Laugh" shows this conversation through close-ups of feet touching, Gaskell's face appearing in the big toenail (an unlikely place for a face to appear), and glass causing blood to spill, along with other examinations of body, pain, and voyeurism. Take a look at the strange, weirdly-engrossing video below, and catch Paper Fairy at Berlin on December 8th for the video release show. - Will Sisskind

Witchrot - Heavy Doom Single "Dug Your Grave", Bovine 11.30

One of the heavier tunes I’ve heard in a while is from Toronto stoner rockers Witchrot. "Dug Your Grave" was recorded and produced by Tallies’ Dylan Frankland. We’re talking powerful vocals and heavy ass guitars. The bulk of the song trudges along at a doom metal pace before ending in full shred mode. The guitar work reminds me of Priestess but Witchrot brings it with a bad ass female singer. They will be playing The Powder Box Release Party at Bovine Sex Club on Saturday November 30th with Head and Cherry Hooker. – Kris Gies

   

Uncola - New Psych Single "Cactus Throat", Monarch Tavern 12.13

Uncola are a new group in the ever growing Toronto psych scene. They have released their debut single “Cactus Throat”. This lo-fi track features excellent vocals with a perfect amount of echo and reverb. The vocals bring a nice contrast to the noisy garage sound of the instruments. The rhythm section drives this song while the guitar is free to make all kinds of sweet sustaining noises. Uncola will be playing The Monarch Tavern on Friday December 13th along with Wine Lips and BBQ Pope in support of The Effens LP Release Party. – Kris Gies
