Officer Girl


Talking Bands

by Marianne Dowling

For rock upstarts Officer Girl, the philosophy seems to be the band that stays together, plays together.

While three of the five musicians have played in bands together since junior high, it’s been in more recently that Stephen Mac Isaac, (vocalist) Jon Stubbs, (bass) Adam Gallant, Luke Macdonald (guitars) and Andrew Bardauskas (drums) have really gotten to know e

Don’t Give Up the Search

The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe

Review by Marianne Dowling

Whether she’s screaming out the angst-filled poetry of a 15-year old punk, stumbling around as a middle-aged drunk, or bragging about high sperm count as a disco-obsessed body builder, Laurie Murphy is consistently fascinating in The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe.

The April Storm


Talking Bands

by Marianne Dowling

PEI pop quartet Two Hours Traffic offers a more energetic, edgier sound this time around with the release of their new self-titled album.

While their first CD, The April Storm, was rooted in melancholy, acoustic guitars, this latest album is full of punchy rock beats, sharp hooks and at times—even cryptic lyrics.

Liam Corcoran (vocals/guitars,) Alec O’Hanley (guitars/piano/vocals,) A

The Robots


Talking Bands

by Marianne Dowling

Listening to The Robots talk about music is a little like listening to a physicist talk about the construction of an atom—the band mates’ plethora of knowledge on the subject is so detailed it can be overwhelming and confusing unless an encyclopedia is near by.

The band sites composers Ennio Morricone, and Vangelis as well as obscure art-rockers Can, as influences

Putting It to the Test
Putting It to the Test

by Marianne Dowling

Here’s my confession: I love Canadian Idol. I’ve been gearing up for the show’s third installment by watching Simon Cowell drive verbal stakes through the hearts of contestants at the American Idol auditions. These preliminaries are my favourite part of the show. When Cowell sits at the judging table next to an ever-shrinking Randy Jackson and an ever-more plastic Paula Abdul—I feel

Good food, good drink, good friends, and the great outdoors; that’s what inspires the guys from Out From Under. So it’s no surprise the

Mars Hill Material

New CD from category-defying group earns ECMA nomination

by Marianne Dowling

Mars Hill could care less about winning a popularity contest. Like the high school kid wearing the Morrissey t-shirt—who has the secret admiration of his peers, but no chance to win Prom King—the band would rather be original than be liked.

One listen to the heartbreaking poetry spoken over wailing trumpets, soft drum beats

In Recent Memory

Talking Bands
by Marianne Dowling

It’s that time of year again when we gather with friends and family, pop the bubbly, wear silly hats and, of course, read all the year-end retrospectives. Here’s another one—my musical memories of 2004. Enjoy.

Most Pointless Award Show:

The People’s Choice Awards, where every category was inexplicably won by Tim McGraw.

Best Band Named After an Assassinated Arch-Duke:

Two Hours Traffic

Talking Bands
by Marianne Dowling

Anyone who has ever taken a high school chemistry class knows that certain elements, when mixed together, can create an explosion. The members of Two Hours Traffic—most of them chemistry majors at UPEI—hope their pop explosion will happen sooner than later, thanks to the addition of Joel Plaskett, their latest album’s producer.

Front man Alec O’Hanley, guitarists L

Eyes For Telescopes


Talking Bands

by Marianne Dowling

Eyes For Telescopes are so close they finish each other’s sentences. Although some of the band members have known each other since elementary school, it’s clear the years of travelling lonely icy roads together to play gigs all over the Maritimes have drawn them even closer.

As soon as vocalist Pat Deighan, drummer Mike MacDougall, vocalist/guitarist Belinda Doyle,
