Lots of great new music this week beginning with a new fave local group, Johnny Tango and their song “Hills.”  January’s Band of the Month, Dead Eyes Open sing about the impending Zombie holocaust.  Rorschach give a spirited desert/blues sounding jam and the show ends with Vancouver based Beautiful Places and Faces.  Thank you for downloading!

Zoinks, I forgot to put a little sauce on the old vocal tracks and I am feeling sick, so they sound a little far away.

Johnny Tango is one of my new fave Vic rockers.  Dave sent me their “Hills” version 2, recorded by Mr. Jason Cook at Adam’s Infinity studio and I think this is a mighty song.  A great chorus, already stuck in my head and I sing all the time. “Where I come from, there are no hills.”  Total sci-fi nerd alien stuff going on here.

Dead Eyes Open are the Zone Band of the Month for the wet and warm month of January.  We’ll get a chance to see them perform their zombie apocalypse inspired rock at Evo on January 28th.  DEO are not the first artistic group to use the moniker “Dead Eyes Open” for a zombie product.  Check out this comic about a man who becomes a living dead but also has the headache of raising a kid and married life.  Oy-Vey!

Also from the land of comics, Rorschach.  He was kinda of a big deal in The Watchmen.  Or maybe the boys were into Swiss towns?

Rorschach has a sound that reminds me of blues meets desert outlaw rock.

My final selection this week is Vancouver band with roots in Victoria.  When my sister used to work at the Whitespot on Quadra at MacKenzie.  The hostess was a young lovely named Kelly who we used to always try and hook up with our brother Matt.  No dice on the love connection, but Kelly did join a neat dreamy kinda rock band called Beautiful Places and Faces.  Lots of audio space, harmonies, pretty.

That’s all I got for this week.
