Meme: How About Some Judas Priest?

I bet the song is playing in your head right now…talk about a twisted ear worm. The rake is metal, so I guess the “metal god” term still applies.

Music Emissions Minute: Dave Grohl’s Sound City Coming to Theatres

So much for Dave Grohl staying quiet in 2013. If you hadn’t heard, the Foo Fighters frontman put his full-time band on ice for a bit to concentrate on his latest project, a rockumentary he’s directed entitled Sound City. If you can’t get out to Utah to see its world premiere at the Sundance Film […]

Music Emissions Minute: Broken Social Scene Reunites for a Field Trip

World-renowned indie record label Arts & Crafts is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and what better way to do so than by curating its own festival?

Music Emissions Minute: 50 Years of Tongue and Lips

Ladies and gentlemen, The Rolling Stones are about to play their first “50 & Counting…” anniversary show at London’s O2 Arena. There probably aren’t too many people from Canada who made the trip across the pond (and if any of you did, shame on you for not bringing me), so here’s hoping @RollingStones provides some […]

Music Emissions Minute: Foo Fighters to Take a Breather

It’s amazing what passes for music news these days. During their September 29th set in New York’s Central Park, Dave Grohl announced that this would be the last Foo Fighters show for awhile. Rock fans worldwide freaked out to the point that Grohl had to take to the FOOs’ Facebook page to explain himself. If […]

Music Emissions Minute: Indie Bands Come Down with Bieber Fever

Welcome to a double-shot covers edition of the Music Emissions Minute. The ROCKthusiast isn’t one to try to make videos go viral, but if anything deserves to be up there with funny cat moments, it’s this indie rock interpretation of Justin Bieber’s “Baby”. Yeah, you read or heard that right. Two Canadian bands that should […]

Music Emissions Minute: Celebrating Ten Great Years of PBR

I wanted to take this opportunity to wish one of Canada’s leading indie labels, Paper Bag Records, a very happy tenth anniversary. Even if you don’t have party tickets to their 3-night concert series at Toronto’s Great Hall, you can still join the festivities by downloading their latest compilation album. How cool is this – […]

Music Emissions Minute: Place Your Bets on Polaris Prize 2012

After more than four months of intense debate, the 2012 Polaris Music Prize will finally be awarded on Monday, September 24th. One of ten albums will be determined as Canada’s best, based on artistic merit, regardless of genre, sales, or record label. While The Grand Jury’s decision will be final, we want to hear the […]

Music Emissions Minute: Death from Above 1979, Alive and Well

Well this was a little surprising. Death from Above 1979, the noisy Canadian duo who infamously broke up after only one full-length album, only to reunite last year for the festival circuit, are apparently working on new material. In a blog post on their site simply entitled “Ok.,” drummer Sebastien Grainger said the band’s new […]

Music Emissions Minute: It’s Concert Movie Mania!

Movie theatres are the new music venues, or at least that‘s what it seems like this fall. The big screen will be rocking starting on September 20th with Hungarian Rhapsody – That’s a Queen concert from Soviet-occupied Budapest in 1986, remastered in HD as well as 5.1 surround sound. The Vancouver International Film Festival will […]
