Scarlet Canary: Setting the Example

 

In this industry, working together is the only way to survive. In order for that to happen, two people or groups of people need to unify and align with a common goal; easier said than done. In a time when hard work is taboo and ego powers are an industry, we always hear about “those artists”. You know, the bands that “take themselves seriously” and “work hard”. Then you have the artists that literally sacrifice their own time, comfort, and selves to be in this industry. Have you met Scarlet Canary?

To prove my point, I would like to take you to a show at the Bancroft on a cool San Diego fall evening in Spring Valley, CA. The Blondetourage tour was in town with Scarlet Canary and City of the Weak. After enjoying a warm Budweiser with The Beast next to Maggie Mounds, I learned again of what sacrifice, unity, and teamwork is really all about.

Due to tour vehicle troubles back in the Midwest, tour mates City of the Weak had to pull the plug. They called to Scarlet Canary and divulged the bad news. “We took their phone call very serious” said Hannah. “We pulled over and discussed what to do in the van for nearly an hour”, she added. Scarlet Canary collectively decided to turn around and go get City of the Weak; 7 hours in the opposite direction. They downsized and shared equipment, they very intimately shared space in an extremely cramped minivan, and found how hard it was to be cost effective with sharing hotel rooms and finding places to stay because they had now doubled their pack.

Both startup bands, City of the Weak and Scarlet Canary, put on a solid show considering the environment they chose to put themselves through. It seemed like both bands were in good spirits and seemingly having a great time translating to a fun environment for heavy music lovers. “This is probably the most fun tour I’ve been on”,  stated Rolltide before the show. It showed in Scarlet Canary’s performance and personalities.

Scarlet Canary displays leadership in an industry that lacks it. They set the bar for what it takes to be in this business and the sacrifice that comes with it. Scarlet Canary represents all that is good in rock ‘n roll musicians. I am proud they are a Dirtbag band and urge you all to check them out at a live show or on social media, itunes, and Spotify.

Cranked Up Live

 

 

Dear Abbey – Song Review – Parasite

I jump-started my Friday morning by rushing out the door for work. I was still dreary, and in a bit of a haze from the show I had gone to the night before. When I got on the road, I received an email asking me to review the new single from Dirtbag artists, Dear Abbey, entitled: Parasite. Given the condition I was in at this particular time of the day, I was unprepared for the musical kick in my ass that was about to be delivered.
This track busts through the doors with a driving guitar lick, led in by a full-band hulk smash. Right off the bat, I hear a fat, pumping, pulsing kick drum. It cuts right through the heavy guitar rhythms/soaring lead like a fresh blade. This song has gotten my attention; I am wide awake now, and we haven’t even hit the first verse.
So the band pulls back a little; a tight, crunchy rhythm takes over, and out pours the beast himself, Jeremy Hunter. In an era of such steep uncertainty for hard rock, a strong, male-fronted act is exactly what these times call for.. and Jeremy Hunter delivers. The verse builds perfectly into a catchy hook, followed by an expected and appropriately-placed interlude.
From here, the rest of the track writes itself. The above mentioned sequences repeat, and we are taken into a majestic and curious-sounding bridge, which incorporates some neat guitar sound effects. The chorus then plays out two more times, and the song hits its abrupt finish- the lead slowly echoing off into the distance. Although I could feel the punch in this song, I could almost predict what was coming next. This song would make a perfect push for radio play.
Parasite is hot, it’s heavy, and is guaranteed to blow the lid off your brown-bottle flu. Another woe often overlooked in hard rock these days is accessibility [and in many cases, intelligibility]. Without a doubt, this song is accessible, relatable, and radio-ready. I am exceedingly ambitious to hear the rest of Dear Abbey’s new LP, The View From Up Here, available April 15 on iTunes, Google Play, and Spotify.

5 stars.
