Courage My Love - Stereo

Canadian recording artists Courage My Love have released their new, sophomore album Synesthesia last Friday, February 3, via InVogue Records.
Produced by David Bendeth (Young Guns, Tonight Alive, Art Of Dying and a million more) and recorded in Toronto at Noble Studios and Pocket Studios, Synesthesia introduces a new arsenal of sounds for the Kitchener, Ontario, based trio who have made a name for themselves and built a strong following on a number of tours across North America and Europe.

Defined as a blending of the senses where the stimulation of one sense leads to an automatic, involuntary reaction in another, like hearing in colour, Synesthesia was titled to reflect Courage My Love's newfound stylistic maturity.

On Synthesthesia, Mercedes Arn-Horn, her sister Phoenix and Brandon Lockwood approached the songwriting phase with a poppier sensibility; Phoenix taught herself synth programming which helped shape the sound of the new album: thus CML's alternative and indie influenced songs have a new, mainstream appeal that should grant the band a huge success.

Take as example of the "new" sound the singles Stereo (watch the Emma Higgins-directed video clicking on the image) and Animal Heart. Or, even better, stream the whole new album on Spotify.

IAMDYNAMITE in Stereo Friday, 9 March 2012 00:05 by madseason

American indie/garage-rock duo IAMDYNAMITE (Chris Martin aka C-Mart and Chris Phillips aka C²) will release its debut album "SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC" on June 5th, via Brando Records in USA, while a German release is expected for today through Neo - Kanoon Records (with distribution by Sony Music).

IAMDYNAMITE are managed by Blue October's bass player Matt Noveskey, who also produced the album, with Jay Ruston (Bowling For Soup, Metallica, Jars Of Clay, Meat Loaf) mixing it.   The duo's style is quite unique: just guitars and drums with an indie raw approach, groovy hooks and somewhat of a western movie soundtrack feel.

IAMDYNAMITE's just released a video for the single "Stereo": watch it now by clicking on the image above.
Also, from March 22nd to 31st, Martin and Chris will play 8 headline shows in Germany, where they already performed last year supporting Blue October. Find out the details of the dates here.
