Read up on CalgaryIsAwesome’s Best Of 2013 – they chose not just a song, but everything about us as their pick of the year!
My fellow editors got to chime in on which YYC band, album, or song rocked their socks this past year:
Scott had a hard time picking a particular tune and threw Napalmpom as a whole for his choice. “Nick Taylor, actually put me onto their sound. I like fuzz guitars and rock that kicks you in the face, and these guys deliver”.
Last but not least, I have to give a shout out to Devonian Gardens. This band manages to hit the inner depths of whomever it was I’m a reincarnate of. My 2013 pick goes to these guys and their song Goldbond from their full length album, Solar Shifting. I appreciate a song that can take me on a trip, and Goldbond is able to do so. It starts out unassuming with a twangy feel, just as you’re getting comfortable it comes to a halt. The drums come in, then the sitar-esque guitar layers on top, turning the last half of the song into your own interpretation…just close your eyes, turn on, tune in, and drop out.
