“He has such a unique eye and style", says Jim Cuddy of the group's collaboration with Mills, "When asked to do a video mash up of two Blue Rodeo songs he came back with an 18 minute opus. Part narrative, part abstract and all beautiful to look at; the video rewards multiple viewings. A truly wonderful piece of work.”Skaters Release "Miss Teen Massachusetts" Single
NYC rockers SKATERS are readying to release their debut LP, Manhattan, but have released their new single in the meantime, “Miss Teen Massachusetts”. The band garnered early attention for their energetic live shows and involvement in the NYC creative community, including DIY publication of the popular art zine YONKS. They've earned praise from New York Times, Rolling Stone Magazine, Alternative Press and NME, to name a few. Paste Magazine has said, “The self-invented youthfulness of Skaters has many (including the New York Times) claiming that these ragged bandits will be around for a long, long time.” We agree!
Check out their official music video for the single "Miss Teen Massachusetts".Congratulations To All Of The JUNO Nominees!

In case you live under a rock, you may have missed the Seattle Seahawks win their first Super Bowl crown this past Sunday. Even if you did, we're sure that having your mind blown by Bruno Mars' performance at the Pepsi Halftime Show was inevitable - we don't care how big your rock is. Alongside the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and with heaps of his boundless energy, Bruno Mars delivered a "start-to-finish impressive, entertaining, and fun Super Bowl performance"; while not surprising given his immeasurable talent, Mars' performance attracted the largest audience in the history of the Super Bowl, with a remarkable 115.3 million viewers tuning in.
