Dark Planet lights it up

in Music by

Dark Planet is back in action and with a brand new video. “For the Love of Hip Hop” is a fine trip down old school lane with a familiar sensation with clips of Alley CB Flynn doing his thang and hitting up local scenes in town. Though the sound hits an old-school nerve, it’s a fresh alternative to anything ever heard before and delivers a unique song that listeners can connect with while easily bopping their head up and down. This is the third video release from The Blue Wolf Chronicles by Dark Planet which includes Flynn and his partner in crime Adam Caines, known as AC Glowbrain. The duo decided to slowly release videos month by month to remain…

A Chat with the B’ys

A Chat with the B’ys From “Not Quite:” The Crew Behind “The Fast and the Furious: Pothole Drift” On this past Monday morning, my CBC Facebook page flickered with a faux-trailer for The Fast and the Furious: Pothole Drift. Soon thereafter it was followed by a flurry of shares from all ends of my Facebook friend continuum. The video (link here if you somehow have not already seen it) is the latest offering from Not Quite, an up-and-comedy sketch comedy group. Their Facebook group says this about them: “Making videos with low expectations.” While this is refreshingly humble, it’s hard not to have higher expectations for the crew that brought you other topical and popular sketches: DarkNL and The Snowpranos, which also…

Coldplay puts a smile upon your face

There was a lot of excitement for me leading up to Coldplay’s release of their latest record Ghost Stories. The album was teased with a rich, highly cinematic video for Midnight directed by Mary Wigmore on February 25, 2014. Despite being one of the slowest building songs in memory, barely increasing much in tempo it is more a big long intensifying crescendo. Yet, it remains one of my favorites from the record, often getting stuck in my head. It’s also no surprise, given that description of the song’s sound, that it was constructed around an ambient track originally produced in 2003 by regular Coldplay collaborator Jon Hopkins, called Amphora. That said, in the Live DVD/CD version of the album, Midnight…

Every single time Hammer Clarke meets someone- they are always fascinated by his name. He is continuously bombarded with questions about how and why his official name became Hammer, and everyone assumes he is joking around. That being said, if you know Clarke, it would not be unlike him to play a lifelong joke on the entire world and trick them into believing his name is Hammer, just for his own personal entertainment. There is more to Clarke than a pretty sick name- he has visited nearly 37 states. He played in a band that actually went on tour and when he wasn’t playing with them, he was their official sound guy. That’s right, a band with a sound guy,…

There and back again

From Newfoundland to Montreal, parents Thomson and Hamel keep the music alive. Tint of Ink has been trying to interview Matthew J. Thomson and Danielle R. Hamel for way too long. If you ever have the chance to check out their music (it’s free online)- do it. It’s a masterpiece. They are nothing like anything you’ve heard before, yet so appealing. Their songs will enlighten emotions you didn’t even realize you had. Hold on to your hats and have a listen, you’ll understand why I was so desperate for an interview. Bumping into the musicians at a kid’s birthday party was the perfect opportunity to secure a spot with the busy parents of two. Unfortunately, juggling their own kids’ schedules…
