Casino: Black Hornets and Homeland EP Release Party
Who Are Casino?
Hailing from sweet suburban Montreal is Casino, a dedicated alternative/pop-rock ensemble composed of four talented guys: Joey Berlangieri, Mike Berlangieri, Corey Biondi and Marc Gebrayel. The project began in 2008, and soon evolved into a collection of heartfelt tracks, with a first EP released in June 2011 titled Sainte Rose. The album, which is available for free download on their official page, is just the beginning of the astonishing qualities the band has to offer.
In light of their soon to be released Homeland EP, a video for Casino’s single “Black Hornets” has been released. Directed and edited by Randy Santandrea and carefully presented in peaceful gray scale, we follow the protagonists’ vital journey, a search for some form of closure or acceptance, a well-sought escape. He travels alone in familiar spaces: a field, a forest, a dusty road. Throughout, one could only imagine the thoughts roaming through the back of his mind, narrated by the lyrics of this emotive tune. Our wanderer seems to answer his interrogations as he pauses, the circling of the camera connecting him to the band. He finally reaches his desired destination, an opening in the forest revealing a river, a refreshing sense of serenity. The composition of the accompanying track is equally revitalizing. It is calming as it is enticing, and quite energetic while remaining poetic. Casino have definitely done a great job at piecing the elements of pop rock in an alluring way.
Homeland: EP and Release Party

In a world where lovers become foes. Foes become lovers. And everyone in between is but a mystery. What is then left aside from BLIND FAITH? PROLOGUE You wake up in a strange, yet familiar place.

You can now let the waves wash over you as you watch the visuals for Fantasy - the effortless tune off of Urban Flora from Alina Baraz & Galimatias.

It starts with a better looking version of Robert Pattinson melting into the milk floor. When the dreamy palm tree instrumentals kick in, he finds himself on some of kind of golden shore. Even the girl is now...

Society is a very ugly monster. It will lash out at the slightest of provocations. It excels at setting impossible standards, and its hobbies include shamming and criticizing (not necessarily in that order). Speaking of the impossibly high standards, it's enough to watch one of the recent Hollywood made actions flicks to understand what I'm getting at: It's very tough out there, and let's face it: most of us do not look like Megan Fox. It's not just the action packed movies aimed...

As a huge fan of TopShop I was severely unimpressed with their new collection created by Kylie and Kendall. Don't get me wrong I adore Kendall and Kylie, but personally not one piece of clothing was worth taking home. As a fashionista I particularly love to see what the visual merchandiser has chosen to put up on the mannequins, especially if I'm at TopShop. However, not one outfit screamed "buy me!" You would think that with Kylie and Kendall's unique style and knowledge of fashion...
