Casino: Black Hornets and Homeland EP Release Party

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.

    As soon as we laid eyes and ears on singer/songwriter Phoebe Ryan, we knew she was someone to keep on our radar. This Scandinavian pop artist has a great voice to boot. Her debut is definitely more than just ordinary. She uploaded her own rendition of two of our favourite timeless tracks and even put together a music video for it. We know, we know, EVERYONE has done a cover mash of R. Kelly’s “Ignition”... but no one added Miguel’s “Do You" to the mix yet. Which in effect, creates a truly...

    Gearing up for his debut album release at the end of February, Toronto up and coming artist Marlon James drops a simple yet psychedelic video for his single "Away".  Check it out here:  Directed by Marco Baldonado, the video represents the lingering feelings of a past relationship gone sour, represented by whispy smoke projections of James himself. His role as a creative catalyst to some of Toronto's most prominent creatives (Tanika Charles, Birthday Boy, Junia-T) has solidified his...

    Never has a kitten exploding looked so appealing. Normally, being excited to see a feline-firecracker would be frowned upon, but the game Exploding Kittens has made the psychotic desire incredibly popular. The Kickstarter campaign for the card game reached its pledge goal of $10,000 within 20 minutes. After a day they have over 46,000 backers and over a million dollars pledged. They still have 29 days left, and it’s safe to assume by February they’ll have taken over the world. The game was...
