Dinosaur Bones

In late 2009, Ontario’s Dinosaur Bones entered the studio with producer Jon Drew (Fucked Up, Tokyo Police Club, the Arkells) to lay down the foundation for their long-anticipated debut LP. Until then, anxious fans can take solace in a 7-inch, being released February 2nd 2010 – consider it a preview of what is to come.

We caught up with the band to find out what they’ve been listening to lately:

Land of Talk – “Some Are Lakes”

This female fronted three-piece hails from Montreal, and their direct and emotionally charged rock songs are some of the best I’ve heard in ages. This album isn’t exactly brand new, but its seriously worth getting your hands on.

Attack in Black – “Years”

These guys were on a serious up-and-up playing gruff beard-rock, then took a left turn and made this seriously low-fi folk record full of memorable songs interesting production choices. Such a great album, its a shame its so under the radar.

French Kicks – “Swimming”

French Kicks are personal favourites of mine. This album is as subdued and understated as it is heartbreaking and beautiful. They’re about four albums in, and by now they seriously know what they’re doing. (They’re also the only non-Canadian band on this list… Bias?)

Timber Timbre – “Timber Timbre”

Here’s another folk record, but this one is probably the spookiest folk record I’ve ever heard. Or spookiest record period? I dunno, its unreal. Check out the video for “Demon Host”.

Arkells – “Jackson Square”

These guys are tearin’ it up in Canada, and I’ve got a feeling it won’t be long till they’re making waves in the States. Straight up rock with a pop sensibility, if you’re into something a little more radio friendly, get into it.
