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.

    Black Hornets
    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
    If you have already fallen for this song, you definitely need to pick up their upcoming EP from which the song derives. Not only will Homeland be released on November 19th, but there will also be a concert party to celebrate it. Casino will be holding their show at La Sala Rossa on Saint-Laurent on the same date at 7:30 PM sharp. Joining them will be Midnight Romeo from Quebec (they shared the stage with bands such as The Sounds, Die Mannequin, Simple Plan, Foxy Shazam, and more), presenting the crowd with a sweet dance-rock ambiance. The show is all ages, so be sure to be there! Tickets can be found here or at the door. More information can be found on the band's Facebook page.

      If you're into indie bands and hipster cool videos, you will find Canadian band The Fast Romantics' new video la crème de la crème! The music video for "Friends" is absolutely wonderful, since it shows a compilation of vintage TV commercials (from the 50's and 60's). As the song goes on, the lyrics sync perfectly to the ads shown. It makes you wonder if they wrote the song using the commercials, or if they had the lyrics and found those vintage ads later. Either way, it is a beautiful video...
      English “songsmith” Astronomyy just dropped his EP, There For U, and makes surf-urban the new chill. Astronomyy’s signature sound is minimalistic focusing on simple beats, vocals, and space guitar. He is able to combine hip-hop beats, rock guitar rhythms, and haunting vocals to create very relaxing music.  Astronomyy has been slowly releasing his 4 track EP and every song is killer. Stand out track has to be “Pack of Wolves” with it’s cascading guitar and soothing vocals. He also created...

      About a year ago, rapper, Lil Twist was pulled over doing doing 69 in a 30, after blowing through a bunch of red lights, and of course the cops found a lit joint in his center console. After he failed all three of the "Touch your nose, walk a straight line, and stand on one leg" tests, like a true YM Member, he was taken into the station. "Unfortunately" The Police waited almost an hour to do a blood test on the young rapper so the District Attorney determined the outcome was too small to be...

      The colors, movements and textures in this video are enough to make your eyes roll and your head dizzy - but I liked it?? Moodoïd kills it with this track and fanciful video.     "La Lune" is the leading track off of Pablo Padovani, aka Moodoïd's, upcoming EP. Sweet vocals are delicately laid on top of gentle tambourine jingles and trance like rhythms for an otherworldly experience. Now, I don't speak french but with all the visual stimulation going on I...

      You know when you hear a song and instantly love it?  That's what happened a few days ago in a little pub downtown Toronto when I first heard "Cadillac Girl" by Only Real. I had to know who the song belonged to so that I could download it and play on repeat asap. Turns out the song came out 2 years ago so I'm a little late, but hey, better late then never, right? It's the perfect summer tune to groove to with its catchy rap-esque verse and upbeat chorus that you have...
