More To Explore: The Good Fridays, Medicine Hat

The Good Fridays
For those who like: their prog rock funky

Out of Hamilton/Burlington we get The Good Fridays combine funk and electro rock with a wandering prog rock tendency.  They recently released their High Five EP.

Have a listen to "Mandark" here:

Medicine Hat
For those who like: Ohbijou, Vivian Girls

Guelph is the town that has produced Medicine Hat.  The band includes a pair of Humber College Jazz grads (a program located just down the street from me) as well as a classically-trained pianist.  Very little of that comes through on their debut EP.

Instead they put together an energetic combination of folk pop and indie rock that's filled with drama and honesty.

Listen to the great "Little Cigarettes" here:
