York Redoubt don't waste time 

New Music: Lo-fi, melodic and mathy, with a penchant for adding unusual noises to recordings.

Made up of Mike Wright (bass, vocals), Caleb Langille (guitar, vocals), Brad Lahead (guitar, vocals) and Noah Dalton (on drums; Dalton replaced his older brother Seamus after he left Halifax for school), York Redoubt may play with clock radios on stage, but no one can accuse them of wasting time.

Currently touring across Canada and into the States, the band recently produced a short run of cassettes to tide fans over until their anticipated debut record comes out on vinyl (as a split release on Noyes and Hot Money Records).

Lo-fi, melodic and mathy, with a penchant for adding unusual noises to recordings, York Redoubt sound like Built to Spill and Deerhoof, had both those bands spent time in Halifax in the early '90s.

"We love Halifax and we love The Beatles," says Lahead. "New bands around Halifax probably influence us the most." (SJ)
