The Dunes :: Release Date: 05/05/2009

Subject To Change

“Toronto rockers the Dunes are finally back with a follow-up to their 2006 crowd-pleasing debut, Socializing With Life. STC finds the band — led by powerful vocalist Kevin Pullen — pumping out one stadium-sized anthem after another, with a few delicate, introspective strummers adding sonic balance.”

Party In Your Basement

Grand:PM :: Release Date: 30/10/2007

Party In Your Basement

Party In Your Basement, an 11-song collection devoid of filler. The contagiously frisky “God Save The Scene” takes a perceptive look at the dangers of faddishness (“just when you get it right, you know you’ve got it wrong”), while the equally catchy opening cut, “Red/Black,” sports the immortal line “I’m a loser but I ain’t no quitter.” Band members may compare the sessions to a difficult childbirth, but the creative labours involved have paid off. Paul Hicken praises the ‘big picture’ approach of Zee, noting that “as the layers get put on, you realize the whole masterpiece Zee has had in his head for the whole time. You can’t see it till its done, but it all fits together like a puzzle.

Socializing w/ Life

The Dunes :: Release Date: 26/09/2006

Socializing w/ Life

“Thought provoking, up lifting, yet dark and emotionally jarring, “Socializing w/ life” is a dramatic collection of heart felt songs; that take you on a journey through love, loss, fear and desire. From the tender melodies and swooning lyrics of “Sunflower Eyes” and “The Easiest” to the uplifting “Hurry Up” to the edgy snarling guitars of “Calling all Cars”, Socializing with Life tells emotional tales of love and hope. The album has been described as having a “global” sound at the same time delivering a raw and powerful intensity. The album builds towards the climax “Do It All the Time”, which is an eruption of drums with a radio friendly chorus that has become an anthem to fans everywhere”

You Pour The Gasoline I’ll Light The Match

Blue.Skies.At.War :: Release Date: 22/05/2004

You Pour The Gasoline I’ll Light The Match

“Yet another band to bridge the hush-hush ties between emo and nu-metal, Blue Skies At War have produced an album whose sound is likely to appeal equally to fans of Thursday as well as fans of radio rock groups such as Three Days Grace. With their aim centred squarely on the angst-ridden teenage set, lyrics such as “I don’t know if I’ll be there when everyone you love turns away from you,” can be as much a piercing arrow as a painful cliche, depending on your point of view. A few truly inspirational musical moments can be found throughout, such as the driving rhythm and fractured guitar of “Another Hero Dies,” and the powerful screams of the band’s triple vocal assault help anchor the “singing” portion of things. Guaranteed to win the band new fans on numerous sides of the musical fence, You Pour is an important release for a band who have been working long enough to deserve the break it will give them.”
