Get Thorny 3 – Double CD sampler
Release Date: January 23, 2011
Released by: Thorny Bleeder
by Jade Sperry
Thorny Bleeder in Vancouver BC have released a free legal download sampler of some of the fine talent that they have. Besides the bands listed below in the official press release, some of the other bands that are outstanding on this CD include Dead Eyes Open (who reside in British Columbia and were in the Top 20 of the CFOX Seeds in 2010), Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (a Vancouver BC hard rock band who are playing at The Media Club on Monday February 21), The Order Of Good Cheer (a Toronto ON band who started their career in early 2010 with the recording of their debut album “Tanto Manta, Manta Tanto”), The Post War (from Vancouver BC who are a really good kick ass band), Static In The Stars (a stellar band from Vancouver who rock out hard and fast), Venice Queen (another killer live show band from Vancouver who can and will rock out harder than any mainstream band ever will) and finally Western Medicine, a Vancouver band that I personally love as they have a sound that crosses Rage Against The Machine with post-punk melodies that just kill.
One of the best things about this sampler is that it was immediately posted to torrent sites on the net and is downloaded by thousands of people everyday in countries that normally would not hear this music EVER. Giving exposure to these bands in countries over the globe is one of the most important resources we have here in Canada. There is an explosion of talent here in Canada that is not being tapped into by the Mainstream except in forms of Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene. Although these are good bands, they are a bit on the “safe” side as far as the “music” goes. Most of the bands on Thorny Bleeder 3 CD 1 (Side EH?) are a bit on the mellow side for those folks who are into contemporary music or into singer/songwriters, while CD 2 (Side BE) has the not so safe music that is on the heavier and harder side by metal or post-punk metal bands. So whatever your tastes are in music, there is something here for everyone.
