This morning, while I was waiting for my friend to get ready, I came across with a band called "Minotaurs" The free download of this entire week was from their album and I started listening to the song, "Caught in the light". This song really caught my ears’ attention immediately. The song starts with a jazzy percussion. Then very groovy tune fills in the atmosphere; filling the track with the sounds of guitar, trumpet and saxophone. Moreover, what I like about this song is how the singer’s smooth soft voice flows with the music. The lead singer, Nathan Lawr, is also known as a supporting member from a various band, including King Cobb Steelie, Sea Snakes, Jim Guthrie, Constantines, FemBots and Gentleman Reg. I don’t know what it is, but there is definitely something about his voice. I know
’s' stuff pretty well as I own a couple of CDs, however, Nathan's stuff is completely different from them, in a good way. Exclaim, Constantine ’s free Music newspaper, even stated that "Over the past decade, Lawr became a Romeo of underground folk-rock, writing of interpersonal affairs with his heart on his sleeve. That's how the Guelph, ON-based artist operates ― logic, passion, joy, and rage, all simmering to the surface" Toronto
I found out that there will be a Toronto Show on September 24th at Garrison!!! It's on this Friday!! I think it's worthy to go and check out how the band actually sounds like in a show. Which I am most definitely tempted to do. But of course, before the show, you can check out their music on either their My Space site, or Click here to download free MP3s from Spinner's website. I have no idea how long these links are available, so hurry and get the awesome music yo!
