Sometimes, you just can’t place a band’s sound. Take the Regina-based group Peanut Butter Genocide, for example. This badass three-piece, which lists such diverse bands as Nine Inch Nails, Beck, The Kinks, The Flaming Lips and David Bowie as influences, offers up a serious blend of synths, guitars and live electronic sampling that you just can’t find anywhere else. Featuring the talents of Andy Goodson (samples, synth, guitar, bass, percussion, sitar and vocals), Mitch Doll (bass) and Ethan Anderson (guitar, vocals), Peanut Butter Genocide is bursting onto the scene. Their first album, Mood Bedroom Meter, was released in 2012, and recorded in the woods of Duck Mountain Provincial Park. Come check these dudes out when they tear it up next week.
Paddy Tutty is a Saskatoon-based artist who has dedicated years to producing traditional folk music. She is best known as a singer of traditional songs, including ancient ballads, songs from the British Isles and North America, magical and seasonal pageants, and more. Tutty’s diverse CV isn’t restricted to that of a solo artist, though. She has also collaborated with performers in theatre, music and storytelling, and has worked with such renowned producers as David Essig and Ian Tamblyn. Her latest album, The Last Holdout, which she produced on her independent label Prairie Druid Music, was released in October of 2013. Tutty will be bringing her haunting melodies to the Exchange’s stage later this month. Tickets will be available at the door.
Florida Georgia Line, or FLG, is a country pop duo consisting of Brian Kelley (from Ormond Beach, Florida), and Tyler Hubbard (from Monroe, Georgia). Although the pair have only been on the scene since 2010, they have already achieved a strong fan base the world over. They released a six-song EP called Anything Like Me back in 2010, followed by their second EP, It’z Just What We Do, in 2012. But it was with their first studio album, 2012’s Here’s to the Good Times, that Kelley and Hubbard really broke into the mainstream, as they became the only artists in history to join Brooks & Dunn in having their first three singles hit #1 for multiple weeks each. FLG is currently on tour, and will be playing Regina in the spring. Tickets available through Ticketmaster. – By Adam Hawboldt
