Check Out Chuck Ragan, An Horse, Copycat and the Mercy Now in Our Exclaim! TV Roundup
Published Apr 20, 2012We've had tons of awesome guests stop by for Exclaim! TV sessions in the last couple weeks, so if you've missed any of the performances, now is your chance to catch up.
First up, we visited up-and-comers Copycat at their Toronto rehearsal space where they proved that they're not your average indie rock band. With a lineup featuring saxophone, violin and trombone, they have a big band and an even bigger sound. Watch them run through "How the Story's Told" and "Monster."
Husky-voiced folk singer Chuck Ragan (pictured) made a name for himself with Hot Water Music, and when he stopped by the Exclaim! backyard he proved that he hasn't lost his punk ethos since going solo. Delivering hard-hitting folk, backed by an upright bass and a fiddle, the trio churned out lively renditions of "Nomad By Fate," "Nothing Left to Prove" and "You Get What You Give."
A short walk from the Exclaim! HQ, Christie Pits acted as a stage for Australian indie pop duo An Horse. The pair performed with just a guitar, recording acoustic versions of "Airport Death" and "Dressed Sharply."
Also, making things a bit noisier, Toronto soul rockers the Mercy Now cranked out "Stop Talking" in their local jam space.
Finally, fans of electronic music won't want to miss the two latest instalments of MUTEK's Digitalis series. In the seventh episode, we featured Real Cardinal's audio-visual project Comaduster, and for the eighth segment, the spotlight shifts over to visual label AntiVJ.
