Finally, Bondo picked her favourite 2017 releases!
The Hypochondriacs quickly etched their mark as a staple band in the Fredericton music scene long before their debut album was released. And we mean long. In 3/4 took what felt like a lifetime to come into fruition, but as they say all good things are worth waiting for. Their press release says “The Hypochondriacs resurrect classic country
There is so much amazing music being created in our own backyards. CHSR wants to help highlight some of the albums/EPs being submitted to their Music Department! Erin Bond, aka Bondo, current CHSR Station Manager, has been a musicoiphile her entire life. She was introduced to CHSR back in 2011 when a friend mentioned a
Toronto, Ontario band Speaker must be named after the things they destroy. Their new album “Murder and Create” provides a new incarnation of their sound where they strip themselves of any traces of the traditional structures of hardcore. The band plants their feet in the perfect head-space to do what they do best, which
Before I venture much further down the road of producing content for CHSR in the form of “Music Reviews” I feel that there is an elephant in the room that needs to be addressed. It has been brought to my attention (but not to my surprise) that my writings are skewed towards the positive in
The warm rasp of Jessie Brown’s dangerous blend of fuzzy rock is a soundwave grown from the roots of the best power singers in history. With the lungs of Janis Joplin and the range of Freddie Mercury, Brown has been captivating audiences, both big and small, filling the spaces that remain with her
Synthesis is our first look at Moncton tech-death band Psychotropy. The band is composed of vocalist Noah Arsenault and Metal Bukkake founders Jonathon Lurette and Chris Doucet. The track is a perfect representation of what the metal community on the east coast enjoys, wave after wave of blasts and the vile, finger-breaking riffs of
Bondo kinda really likes the new record from Halifax’s Floodland.

I’m not an authority on folk music. Most of my recreational listening consists of Americana and blues rock drenched in sludge, but there are a few universal truths in music that get me every time. Tight melody&harmony, honest songwriting, and a compelling live presentation. As such, the intent of this missive is to briefly review both
The fuzzy noise of Full of Hell has the stage all to itself once again, morphing into a relentless barrage of riffs and songs unlike anything anyone has ever seen from them. “Trumpeting Ecstasy” is the first full length solo release from the grindcore quartet since 2013 and is making even their most hardcore fans
If you thought Hero’s Last Rite had any soft spots left when it comes to their brand of extreme thrash, rest assure that their third-coming album, “Wasted Prayer”, has reinforced them all. Their ECMA winning album “The Mirrors Face” tore a strip off Fredericton’s music scene in 2014 and this installment of the band is back for the remains.
Behold, The Conqueror, a band who has been mulling around in Halifax’s metal circuit for the past few years, will certainly have a stronghold on it’s patrons with the unleashing of their first full length release. The self-titled album will find a comfortable seat in the ears of any listener across the genre’s spectrum. The
Bondo’s Quick Pick: Mike Biggar’s “Go All In”.
Richie Young evokes the ghosts of early blues with his debut cd release produced by Jake Duffie and the Underground Alliance. From the first track, Backyard Doctor, the listener is drawn into a Louisiana Bayou, complete with mouth harp and an awesome acoustic blues sound that only Ritchie can deliver (along with feeling and passion).
Check out Bondo’s first night at Paddlefest!

Saint John, New Brunswick’s Elephant Skeletons‘ new EP Zazzerzaz Vol II is self described as sounding “like a crew of gypsy rockers threw a disco dance marathon” by the man behind the project Clifford J.
