Fossil Cliffs

Facebook | Bandcamp

Acadian Embassy introduces Fossil Cliffs, the new solo project from Mike D’Eon (Kuato, The Establishment). Recorded in its entirety in the basement of the Embassy – the house from which the label draws its name – the debut EP is an inspired collection of tracks that draws influence from decades of unsung Halifax underground champions. From the jittery start/stops of opener “Summer Sun,“ to the pop-rock stoner sludge of “In My Eyes,“ and the jangly washed out guitars of “Cold,“ the self-titled, five-track album in an eclectic opening statement tinged with reverb and earnesty.

Kuato

Kuato are a four piece post rock group from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. They formed in the winter of 2010 with the intention of sharing their personal brand of instrumental music with the world.

Drawing heavy influences from fellow post-rock acts such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Tortoise, Mogwai, and Russian Circles; Kuato creates a powerful, unique experience for their listeners. Intense dynamic changes, harmonized guitar melodies, heavy hitting drums, and driving bass are all major staples of the group.

Quiet Parade

The latest EP from Halifax bleeding-heart quintet Quiet Parade finds the group writing some of its most powerful and contemplative songs to date. What started as a solo project for songwriter Trevor Murphy (ex-Sleepless Nights and The Establishment) has matured into an organic, full band effort on Old Haunts. The new album is a collection of songs reflecting on places and people of the past – a reoccurring theme in Quiet Parade’s fog-laden songs.

Voted the Best Band To Listen To Quietly by The Coast’s Best of Music Reader’s Poll for the last three years, Quiet Parade once again taps into its core of introspective and honest songs to present a record that stirs up long-standing ghosts, lingering memories and a glimmer of hope for better days. Whether lamenting relationships or dwelling on fears, the old haunts in these songs are more than just physical. They channel the idea that the hauntingly familiar is in everything.

Rain Over St. Ambrose

Out of the foggy banks of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Rain Over St. Ambrose returns with Truth For News, a record full of rock n’ roll guitars, sing-along choruses and dagger-sharp wit.

The album – their debut full-length – paints a colourful portrait of youthful, up-and-coming band writing with the confidence and experience of an old soul. Already masters of the “big epic chorus” (Bob Mersereau) and “power-pop anthems” (The Broken Speaker), Rain Over St. Ambrose continues to build on their history of energetic brand of engaging “true Canadian music” (Exclaim!).

This year, the band was nominated for four Music Nova Scotia Awards including New Artist Of The Year, Rock Recording of the Year, and Group Recording of the Year (both for Overton Window).
