Alternative rock group, Christ VS Krishna, has recently released a seven track EP, Move and Scale. The band has graced the stages of the iconic El Mocambo and Lee’s Palace in Toronto, as well as having sharing the bill with noted performers Sam Roberts and Bedouin Soundclash. Check them out at www.christvskrishna.com. World Celtic artist from Calgary, Sora, has released her third CD, Scorpion Moon. Described as a cross between Loreena McKennitt and Sarah Brightman, the sound is worldly, ethereal and relaxing. Visit www.soramusic.ca. From Edmonton, Buckman Coe’s new EP, Crow’s Nest, is a really great mix of soul, folk and reggae, among others. His songs with a conscience are highlighted by his very fine vocals. I really recommend you check him out at www.buckmancoe.com. If you have music news or an event you’d like mentioned here, please drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
