Audio Blood's Coffee Shop Project: The Archives

Have you ever wished that we had a local version of Starbuck's 'Pick of the Week,' which the giant coffee chain offers customers a free iTunes download card each week with a new tune?  If you have, your dreams have come true: Audio Blood launched the Coffee Shop Project, (CSP) last month. The free download cards can be picked up at various locations in the city listed below.

This month they are featuring Toronto alternative rock band, The Archives. They are ready to release a new EP, Transitions and will be performing a couple of shows in Ontario, including today's show at Sneaky Dees. With the first listen of the two songs, 'Home' and 'Sheeps Clothing', they made me feel that I would love to see them live due to their energetic sonic sounds. 'Home' is an uptempo tune with encouraging lyrics, which make you feel like you need to get something started. 'Sheeps Clothing', on the other hand, has a very different feel to it. The grungy distorted guitar riff enhanced the darkness of the song, where the grunge and anger is buried deeply in the song.  You can give it a try by picking up the download cards 

The Archives are also heading out on the road, supporting the new release. The Toronto show is tonight at Sneaky Dees. Check them out.
