I am honoured to collaborate for a second year on The Searchlight Mixtape. Last year, I was invited to be a part of a 16-artist/act collective releasing a tape of our respective CBC Searchlight tracks. The tape was downloaded over 1000 times, and we got press around the world, as well as plays on SoundCloud and the CBC Music page. This year, 14 of us from the original group have a new tape. I’d like to present each of my mixtape collaborators and tell you a little bit about their music and message.
Hailing from Winnipeg, Solhounds is the Canadian prairies’ own psychedelic rock band. Started by brothers Sean and Ian Clements, guitarist Ed Durocher and bassist Morgan Davis are now part of the team as well. Their debut EP Smells Like Wet Dog has been well received, success they followed up in typical Canadian fashion: by playing live around Manitoba in venues both grand and modest. Authenticity characterizes this very dynamic group. Have a listen.
