High Places – High Places vs. Mankind Album Review

I have to admit that when I first decided to review High Places vs. Mankind by High Places, I was skeptical. I had originally heard of High Places from the hit British television series, Skins, where some of their music was featured, but I wasn’t very impressed. I am not a fan of experimental music and I was sure I wouldn’t have anything positive to contribute. Yet, when I popped in my headphones and took my first listen of the album, I was pleasantly surprised.

Band You Should Know: Reverie Sound Revue

What do you get when you cross the ruminative, lullaby hum of your most intimate daydreams, and the whirlwind sensation of being lost in a place unknown? Reverie Sound Revue, of course. Canadian bands have a reputation for being underrated, and frankly, Reverie Sound Revue is no exception. The quintet formed in 2002 in Calgary, Alberta and have only recently released their first full-length self-titled album last summer. Headed by lead vocalist Lisa Lobsinger – best known for her collaborations with Broken Social Scene – and backed by the talented John-Marcel de Waal (drums), Patrick Walls (guitar), Bryce Gracey (bass), and Marc De Pape (guitar), Reverie Sound Revue have created a unique indie sound that can only be described as magical.
