Where I record: Ashley Pringle’s Arrangements

The EP influenced by Weezer’s debut should be on your short list of 2019’s top albums.
Who he is Ashley Pringle has been kicking around the Halifax music scene for years: You might know his guitar noodling in the heavy-psychedelic band, Nor, or remember his face-melting prog-metal band MVMNTS—and then there was his stint in the two-piece prog-punk band Slashy that had a fan in The Super Friendz' Charles Austin ("he said we were, and I quote, 'no joke,'" Pringle writes in an email).

Catching up with the Crash Test Dummies

It's been over two decades since God Shuffled His Feet—but as a sold-out show last weekend proved, Halifax still brakes for the Winnipeg folk-rock five-piece.
In the early 1990s, the Crash Test Dummies strummed their way into the international stage with a string of smart, oddball hits—including "Afternoons and Coffeespoons", "Swimming in your ocean", "In the days of the caveman," and, of course, the unforgettable ear worm "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm." The album on which those songs were featured, God Shuffled His Feet, rebuked the notion of a sophomore slump—and instead went on to become the band's most commercially successful effort.
