Quaker Parents 

Huge Mask (Hot Money)

This nine-song tape is the first release from locals Quaker Parents. Made up of members of the Gamma Gamma Rays and Long, Long, Long, Huge Mask starts off with a lo-fi sound recalling elements of various bands the three members have played in. The tape carries along with a catchy, math-rock vibe. The b-side is more upbeat and the songs feel more developed, with tracks like “Got to Go” and “The Sun” standing out. Songwriter Mark Grundy’s lyrics are well-crafted; lines like “down the street I count the beating bass from parties being held so far off-tempo from my evenings” conjure up a sense of particularly Haligonian futility.

Should Nova Scotia revisit its fracking ban now that an Energy Department analysis has found $20 billion worth of natural gas offshore?

  • Frack, baby, frack!
  • No amount of money is worth the environmental damage
  • Let’s invest in renewable energies instead
  • Depends how much cash I, personally, will receive
