The Trick – “Inaugurate Me”

I’ve enjoyed everything The Trick has put out since the dawn of time. So glad he’s still at it and still making new music. The latest release from The Trick is called “Inaugurate Me” and it’s available on Bandcamp as a free download.

All the way from Fredericton, NB, here’s the scoop from Mr. Trick himself, Patrick Reinartz.

How would you describe your sound to someone who’s never heard you before?
I suppose it’s a 50/50 blend of indie rock and synth pop. I grew up with a pretty fierce dual interest in both guitars and synths. I think the electronics won a little bit in the end, but as an instrument, guitars bring a certain level of humanity and imperfection to the table that’s harder to replicate electronically — the feeling that things could go off the rails at any moment. I got my start with The Trick as a solo musician mostly playing all-ages punk shows, and although I was usually the odd-man-out in those situations, the energy of that scene sort of bled over into what I was doing at the time.

What gear/software/techniques did you use in making this recording?
“Inaugurate Me” is a 100% DIY project, so we tracked it in our rehearsal space: a dank basement in a century-old house. It started with a demo I recorded myself and then we gradually layered the rest of the band into it, using pretty traditional methods and setups. Once we had all the pieces, I finished it in Cakewalk Sonar and added the synth layers. There are some softsynths in there (the prepared piano at the beginning and the sequenced synthbass at the end), but the rest was mostly hardware. We have a lot of Korg stuff around — not really intentionally, but that’s largely what it was made with: a Korg Micro-X, a Korg Minilogue, a MicroKorg… There’s also a Novation MiniNova in there and I think a little bit from the Yamaha DX27 also survived.

What mood or mental state do you hope to evoke in the listener with this music?
This is a song I kicked around for several years before it finally took shape (I literally have 3-4 different demos around from different attempts to do something with it). It started as an instrumental demo going for a post-rock meets shoegaze vibe. The entire first half of the song came from that old demo and then there’s that abrupt moment where the tempo doubles and its turns into a synth jam. So I guess I couldn’t commit to that idea for an entire song before my pop sensibilities kicked in. My hope is that it results in something a little cinematic, taking you from Point A to Point B and never looking back.

Denmother – “Now It All Comes”

DenMother from Fredericton makes the best winter music. One year ago I spent the whole month of January in a shack in the woods using her bandcamp as a sonic duvet. Her brand-new release is entitled “Now It All Comes” and it’s the follow up to “Blood: A Memoir” which won Album Of The Year at the 2017 Party Sauce Awards.

DenMother’s sound seems to be getting more stripped down over the last few releases. These songs are soundscapes of synths and reverb washing over a landscape of raw emotion. And yet I find the vocals a little more up-front and less abstract than previous releases, placing all the feelings in plain view.

See DenMother live in Fredericton this month:
Sat. Jan. 13 at Reads with Wangled Teb, Gold Punks
Fri. Jan. 26 at The Capital Complex with Little You Little Me, Shrimp Ring


How would you describe your sound to someone who’s never heard you before? 

Um. Maybe music you can either fight, float or fuck to. You can’t say fuck on a blog though, right? But that’s how I feel about it. It’s like that passionate feeling in your gut that you just need to express, whether it’s anger or lust, but you’re too stoned to get off the floor so you are just screaming and crying. I don’t get stoned anymore though. Maybe I got off topic…

What gear/software/techniques did you use in making this recording?
Garageband and my laptop. And a notebook full of scattered memories and thoughts.

What mood or mental state do you hope to evoke in the listener with this music?
I don’t really hope to evoke anything specific, but I guess maybe pain. Not that I want people to be reminded of painful moments, but I wanted anyone listening to hear the pain that I was feeling. And remorse. And also gratitude. There are a lot years of shit in those 4 little tracks.

Vince Kuzanagi – “Forbes”

Vince Kuzanagi has a new release! Vince was a DJ, promoter and producer in France but he lives in Moncton now and he is France’s gift to the New Brunswick techno scene. Along with spinning vinyl at local events Vince hosts a great show called “Le Catalyste.”

Vince’s new EP is called “Forbes” and it’s out now on Ibiza Boys.
Featuring remixes by Singular and Andrew Duke.

How would you describe your sound to someone who’s never heard you before?
electronic music called techno, with some hypnotic progressions or atmospheric soundscapes

What gear/software/techniques did you use in making this recording?
Ableton, recording and tweaking my kid playing on keyboard (for forbes main melodic riff), patience, time, youtube tutorials

What mood or mental state do you hope to evoke in the listener with this music?
Each track is a history, a trip, a journey into a specific atmosphere.. each sound, each break has its specific place in order to create this travel.. I’m not trying to do killer dancefloor tracks, but more tracks that could attract a listener’s attention after some unconscious listening..but why? because this is how I discover some beautiful tracks I did not pay attention to at first when just checking a few seconds of it.. mostly when I’m receiving loads of tunes for my radio show.. the only way to really select what I love or not, is to play the entire track into a mix, and then sometime the magic appears!
