Album: Doin’ Just Fine
Release Date: May 30, 2014
Orillia, Ontario’s VK and The Narrows released their album Doin’ Just Fine on May 30, 2014 through the Bandcamp platform. The release contains ten tracks including the single “Rock You to Sleep.”
When listening to the release, I was drawn to the caliber of the tracks. It was quite enjoyable to be able to thoroughly listen to Doin’ Just Fine without touching nor having the desire to press any buttons on my computer to go between songs. Within the album, you get the traditional rock sounds, yet the band manages to put their own take on the genre baring a sense of originality. The instrumentals, vocal delivery, and lyrics complement each other nicely as none felt out of place. There were not any songs that really stood out to me as being ‘the best.’
If you are into rock music, I would recommend looking into downloading Doin’ Just Fine through Bandcamp. I am looking forward to what the band does next.
Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
