PINK MOUNTAINHOPS, The New Brew Inspired By Pink Mountaintops

What’s tastier than a beer inspired by Pink Mountaintops? NOTHING. CBC Music put together a wee little project, asking fans to pair band names with beer styles and tag them with #CDNbandbeer on Twitter. Before long, labels were made and many a Canadian brewery were called on to make this mash-up a reality. We’re stoked Pink Mountaintops is included in the fun and cannot wait to get a taste.

Created by Cannery Brewing, PINK MOUNTAINHOPS hits stores June 7. What does it taste like? For starters, it’s a maibock, meaning a German-styled lager complete with classic German malts and noble hops. We’re talking all kinds of delicious.

Julie Doiron Releases New Album, Available for Streaming at Exclaim


After three years of writing and touring, Jagjaguwar alum, Julie Doiron, shares her ninth studio album. Titled So Many Days, the album is out on Aporia and available for streaming via Exclaim. Julie complete the album while touring in support of I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day and also as member of Gord Downie’s backing band, The Country of Miracles. It’s the third album completed with producer Rick White.

 

Love for So Many Days

“The chamomile warmth of Julie Doiron’s voice is deceptive….Doiron has always aimed to capture the kaleidoscopic emotional range of ordinary moments, and accordingly the moods of her songs often transform line by line. Out of this approach, she creates songs that move fluidly, moodily, unpredictably– like life.” – Pitchfork

“…Doiron has come back with a polished collection of folk rock songs about love and sadness.” – CBC Music

“So Many Days is actually quite an optimistic record, on the balance, though it earns its silver linings by freely swimming around in its storm clouds. It gives — like a lot of Doiron’s work — an incredibly rare insight into the bare, honest struggle of simply being a person in the world.” – National Post

Dinosaur Jr. On Tour Now, ‘I Bet On Sky’ Still Shredding

Dinosaur Jr.’s record, I Bet On Sky, came out last week! It’s the third album since the reuniting of the original three. In his 7.9 review, Pitchfork’s Brandon Stosuy recently shared some words on the album. He starts at Dinosaur Jr.’s early beginning and moves us quickly through a brief history, showing us the evolution of the new work >>> the review.

“It’s a subtle shift, but this is neither a move away from their sound nor toward the raging rock of old (even with all those warm-and-fuzzy Mascis guitar solos). In the sprawling, happy anthem “I Know It Oh So Well”, Mascis asks, “Is there light ahead?” Judging from the music here, the answer is a resounding yes.” – Pitchfork

J Mascis recently gave an interview at CBC Music. Is Mascis jazzed about the direction of Dino these days? Head to CBC to find out.

“‘Gene Simmons once said that to me,’ Mascis reveals. ‘That was pretty exciting. I was on a Kiss compilation and he said, ‘Everyone’s really jazzed that Dinosaur Jr.’s gonna be on this compilation.’ So, I think of Gene Simmons when I hear that word.’”

Last, but certainly not least –> DINOSAUR JR. IS ON TOUR! They’re currently working a three day stint at Toronto’s Lee’s Palace and then off into the great wild they go! Check out all the tour dates HERE.
