Ira Lee (My Favourite Songs By Me)

‘My favorite songs by me‘ is the awesome new lp by your friend Ira Lee. What immediately seperates this lp from the hundred and fifty others I come across everyday is the phenomenal Polaroid cover art. The cd is a meaty 16 tracks of distinctive song writing and truly original concepts. It’s rare that a ’rapper’ is able to shape shift so effectively from sing song delivery, to straight on first person storytelling. Aside from it’s startling creativity, and diverse and interesting production values, ‘my favorite songs by me’ manages to maintain a level of sincerity absent in modern music. Featuring production by Factor, Scott Da Ros, Mattr, Funken, & more, Ira lee is truly a wonderful discovery. Available Dec.1 2009 from Endemik Music (internationally) and

The Extremities New Single - "Lost Souls"

5&1/4 Records Presents:

The new single, "Lost Souls" by the Extremities (Fresh Kils & Uncle Fester) feat. Tim Crofts & Anthony Rinaldi.

"Lost Souls", a soul-drenched, timeless instrumental romp, is the first offering off the upcoming Extremities EP coming in early 2010. Riding off the success of their last release, The New Tonic, a CBC jazz remix project, the Extremities have been hard at work on stage and in the studio brewing unique blends of dusty production & live instrumentation. We think you’ll agree; the future is bright for this accomplished Canadian duo.

Check a short clip of the Extremities at the BeatLounge earlier this year.

Sleeping Giant Gallery + Wes Loates

Sleeping Giant is an art gallery located @ 789 Dundas Street West in the downtown Toronto core; a ways from the chi-chi art district. Real deal art & music go down here. Run by Creative Director & owner Josh Glover, the gallery operates with a DIY mentality infused with a devout support and belief in the artists they exhibit and represent.

Wes Loates is a visual artist & contributor to the Sleeping Giant movement. At 31, he is a simian that rolls on a four wheeled wooden toy... paints on the lost and found or scribbles forbidden dialect and thought crimes upon the skin's of trees. Check out some of his works below, and visit the gallery to explore more.
