Woolworm (Vancouver, BC)
Featuring existential lyrics, loud-quiet-loud dynamics and emotive guitars, Woolworm is a hardcore band that plays pop music. Crawling out of the pit of Vancouver’s hardcore scene, the band has perfected peppy pop songs that simultaneously bear the overwhelming weight of existence. We’re not alright, you’re not alright, but we all got each other so dive in face first.

Xertz
Winnipeg post-punk outfit Xertz plays songs of desperation and gloom that reference The Wipers and Mission Of Burma while still holding onto the aggressive and emotional sensibility of mid-‘80s dischord bands like Ignition and Embrace. Xertz offers a fully realized, cohesive, and cathartic sound drawing from many influences, but that remains fresh and unique.

Softswitch
Drawn together by their love of post-punk, early bedtimes and DIY electronics, the quartet has crafted a sonic agenda in tune with the bleak nihilism of ‘90s post punk. With approval by the grandmaster Steve Albini himself, softswitch surges forward with challenging and punishing tracks that bring you back to a time of empty warehouse performances, unhinged punk poets and $5 shows.
