Vancouver trio Space Queen make their virtual homecoming on the Viral Edition of Massif. Featuring three Selkirk College music program graduates—and two Nelson natives!—Space Queen lure you in with throwback harmonies and bluesy melodies before lowering the boom.
Dig into their psychedelic stoner rock sound on their website and on Bandcamp, and give them a holler on Instagram and Facebook.
Get experienced on the Viral Edition live stream on Sept. 26!
Stumbling through a murky forest, you hear the faint strains of music in the mist. Following the sound, you discover a gloomy cabin shaking from the noisy, trashy rock ‘n’ roll being played inside. Against your better judgment, you enter…never to emerge. Another soul lost to The Lunatic Touch!
Listen if you dare on Bandcamp, and lurk on the Saskatoon band’s social media on Instagram and Facebook.
Wade into the swamp on Massif’s Viral Edition, streaming live on Sept. 26!
Vancouver two-piece Trulla has swagger for days, mixing monster riffs with head-turning melodies for a sound both classic and bone-crushing. Massif fans will remember how singer/guitarist Selina Koop dominated the stage in 2017 with Glad Rags, while drummer Heather Ross beats the skins like they stole something.
Drink in their tunes on Bandcamp, or drop them a line on Facebook and Instagram.
And watch them rock the screen during Massif’s Viral Edition, featuring their new single “Sinner,” on Sept. 26!
A power thruple in krautrock circles, Nelson favourites Larch make their long-awaited return to the Massif spotlight after shaking stages across the Kootenays.
Visit their Bandcamp page to bask in their glory, and then praise them on Facebook.
Don’t miss their bid for world domination on the Viral Edition live stream on Sept. 26!
Gutter pop, slaughter-surf and fuzz death are among the completely fabricated genres that the Sex Geckos specialize in. These Saskatoon teenagers (literally) will blow your mind (figuratively!) with energetic psych-punk gems.
Get a taste on Bandcamp, or say hi on Facebook and Instagram. And get with the program on the Massif Viral Edition live stream on Sept. 26!
Three of Christina Lake’s finest have come together to forge an unholy union of psych, punk and garage rock. Scuzzy, fuzzy and fun, King Scrat will take you on a trip you won’t soon forget (or may forget immediately, depending on how hard you partied).
Get rowdy with them during the Viral Edition of Massif on Sept. 26!
In the meantime, tune ’em in on Spotify and hit ’em up on Facebook or Instagram.
