Black Feelings 

Black Feelings (Alien8)

Montreal post-punk power-noise trio Black Feelings focuses its energy on establishing and expanding a sense of volume, both sound and space, in their music. At this point at least, they're little concerned with variation in melody and tone. Drummer-vocalist Owain Lawson's voice lacks character other than he's held at a distance in the mix. Guitarist-keyboardist Kyle Fostner's contributions peek out from the highest peaks of the range, while bassist Brian Mitchell owns the only clear frequency. With a little more nuance and separation more listeners may gravitate to this gravitas, and place Black Feelings in rank with Sons of Freedom, sianspheric and Halifax's own on-hiatus roomdoom.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
