Sweet Static

Yes, another mp3 blog. Trying to share what I like with the world. The music here is for sampling only and are up for a limited time. It's simple really you see. If you like the music then go out and support the artists. Buy a cd/mp3/eight track, make a request on radio, see them live, tell others about it. This way this wonderful medium hopefully won't be stomped on.

Location: Windsor, Ont, Canada

Sweet Static is an mp3 blog that allows me to share the music I love and also to point out other cool things around the internet that catch my attention. It is also a place where I can talk about my radio show by the same name, now on Thursday nights from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm on CJAM 91.5 FM in Windsor, Ontario. Got something I should hear?

Republic of Safety

Republic of Safety is a band out of Toronto I've started to hear a bit of hype about. Doing the dance/pop thing they've got some really catchy songs. They've release two EPs so far. Last year it was Passport and just recently Vacation on Ta Da! Records.

A review in Eye Magazine out of Toronto this week said of the new EP

"'Let's do something meaningful before we die,' pleads the opening track here, but Republic of Safety don't have to worry about that. Even if these fleeting 10 minutes were the extent of their public record, their legacy would be guaranteed. Without sounding like soulless gravediggers, Republic of Safety carry trace elements of a Dead Kennedys/Go-Go's double bill circa 1980, though RoS are far more preoccupied with the present."

Anyways they've got four songs up on their website for download.

From the new Vacation EP
Republic of Safety-"Vacation"
Republic of Safety-"The Favourite Game"

And from last year's Passport EP
Republic of Safety-"Quoin Quoin"
Republic of Safety-"The Roaches Will Not Survive"

You can also check them out on their Myspace page. They also did an interview on CFRU's Mich Vish Interracial Morning Show to promote their appearance at this year's Hillside Festival last Wednesday. You can check out the interview from the CFRU stream archive below.
