Kazoo! #132
Ontario independent pop act The Elwins are a part of a vital practice of D.I.Y. pop eccentrics whose ’60s swoon-worthy melodies unabashedly ignore current trends in indie music. This is a band that reminds one of exactly what can be very good about rock and roll; simplicity and solid songwriting backed by some naturally talented young musicians. The Elwins are a true gem among other independent artists.

Combining hook sensibilities, layers of vocals, and lyrical whimsy, Pure Joy offers a unique brand of pop-rock that you can move around to. Influenced by 60s pop, 70s new wave, and little bit of 90s alt-rock, these Guelph, Ontario troubadours focus on catchy songs about emotion, ambition, and the human condition, as well as blurring the gender line for voices. Concocted from former members of Texting Mackenzie and Dancehall Free for All, Pure Joy delivers 60s influenced pop/rock with the emphasis on vocal harmonies and a less-is-more approach to performance.

A new project from Steph Yates. Steph plays the banjo, she is joined by Tyson Brinacombe on drums and Gin Murray on accordian. Esther Grey have just released a split cassette tape with Tyson & His Game Boy on Cassettestival (Guelph’s new tape only label). Haunting lo-fi folk music with an experimental glimmer, one of Guelph’s newest and best!
