Matt Andersen & The Mellotones

A rollicking, sizzling combination of Andersen's thunderous voice and hot guitar playing matched with the eight-piece force of nature that is The Mellotones.

Andersen calls it "the most drastic thing I could do," a far cry from his usual one guy, one guitar context. "I make an impact when I'm solo by getting them with the quiet parts more than the loud parts. With a band it's the opposite." And if you're going to have a band, it should be The Mellotones. Long a staple of Halifax's live music scene, the band features a smoking horn section along with keys, drums, and more. A stirringly soulful singer with powerful songs and a live band that cooks - don't miss this performance!


Glam and sleaze, desert grit and subway rats, scum-bags, hot messes and cold shoulders: welcome to the world of Whitehorse. Whitehorse’s brazen sonic breadth encompasses psychedelic surf, arid border rock, lo-fi ingenuity, and icy 80’s sparseness. The new album, Panther in the Dollhouse, brings a twist to Whitehorse’s studio approach with the addition of beats and bleeps from NYC hip-hop production duo Like minds (Kanye West, Snoop Dogg). But while each new album sees the duo’s sound evolve, the essence of Whitehorse’s musical identity remains their dizzying guitar playing and vocal chemistry.
