If you’ve never been to Vancouver, let me give you a quick run down. You will spend a lot of time watching neon lights reflected on soaking wet pavement, smoking joints in the rain, reading Vice magazine, and hiding beers in your coat pocket as you run from bar to bar across the cobblestones of the city’s Gastown neighbourhood. Out of the slick streets of Vancouver grew Brasstronaut, a new Canadian band that combines a jazz-folk-indie sound into something at once haunting and comforting. The music has a depth and a darkness to it reminiscent of hiding under the covers with someone you love while a party rages outside your bedroom door. This is last call poetry-when the night is winding down and everyone is drifting back to the places they’ll go. The quartet (Bryan Davies, Edo Van Breeman, Brennan Saul, John Walsh) just released their first EP, Old World Lies, and they’ve been all over Toronto lately, playing at The Drake and Criminal Records with bands like The Two Koreas.
