We’ve invited Vancouver’s excellent Terra Breads to join the Bakeries & Cafes section of our GOODS program as a recommended place to break bread. They are now proud members of Scout, and as such we will be sharing their news and employment needs on our front page in addition to hosting a page for them in our archive of local and independent goodness. We thank them for their support and for making BC a more delicious place to be.

EVERY LOCAL CAFE WE RECOMMEND

ZULU REPORT | All Of The Awesome Sounds That You Should Be Listening To Right Nowhttp://scoutmagazine.ca/2014/09/22/zulu-report-all-of-the-awesome-sounds-that-you-should-be-listening-to-right-now/ http://scoutmagazine.ca/2014/09/22/zulu-report-all-of-the-awesome-sounds-that-you-should-be-listening-to-right-now/#comments Mon, 22 Sep 2014 18:42:29 +0000 http://scoutmagazine.ca/?p=97288 [...]]]> Screen-Shot-2014-09-22-at-11.11

by Nic Bragg | From Kitsilano’s Zulu Records, we once again present our monthly Scout feature, the Zulu Report. Within, you’ll find The Track – the song on heavy rotation in the shop this week; The Playlist – our selection of videos; The Gig – the “must-see show”; and The Glance – which details the best gigs on the immediate horizon. From our ears to yours, enjoy…

THE TRACK

METRONOMY Month of Sundays

Combining the brutalist architecture of London’s Barbican with the dizzy mind play of M.C. Escher and the trippy electro pop of UK’s Metronomy, this puzzling video works on a number of levels. You have to hand to filmmaker Callum Cooper for just choosing a simple idea and running with it. Dressing the band in identical clothes certainly adds to the confusing visuals. Metronomy are a quintessential arty pop band. Of late they have been serving up a steady stream of remixes and covers and clearly know how to standout in a crowd. This new track from March’s ‘Love Letters’ release is sort of a sleeper – watch the video a few times (if you can!) and it will grow on you.

THE PLAYLIST

THE REPLACEMENTS Alex Chilton

This is a heroic moment on many levels. The Replacements and Paul Westerberg are finally returning to play live shows and in doing so also cranking Alex Chilton (R.I.P.) live on Fallon is a nice homage to a guy who always was a thorn in the business’ side and never really got his due. They sound pretty wreckless too…

TY SEGALL Manipulator

Mr. Segall has amassed an impressive catalogue of releases that – when taken as a whole – surely vaults him up as one of the premiere rockers going today. Stealing a page from fellow guitar guru J. Mascis, Ty plays all the instruments on this album and thus allows himself to fully manifest his post-psyche fuzz vibes perfectly. Manipulator is a record you will hear everywhere.

FKA TWIGS Stay With Me

The guys over at Beggar’s Banquet are pumped that London-based modern soul experimentalist FKA Twigs is garnishing high critical praise. She just got announced as a finalist for England’s Mercury Music Award, and has been selling out shows on either side of the pond. Here she drops a droney version of Sam Smith’s well known crooner tune, Stay With Me. If you dig Darkside, James Blake and any number of modern r’n’b singers, then Twigs is your bag.

MAC DEMARCO This Guy Is In Love With You

Mac is up for Canada’s most prestigious music award – the Polaris Prize. There is a good chance he will win, but now that I type that, I realize no one I thought would win has ever won. Shot in location in New York City, this Burt Bacharach cover is actually an ode to Mac’s new guitar player, Andy, who deserves his own award for that moustache.

MICHAEL FEURERSTACK Scorekeeper

If you’ve wandered through the back-woods bars of Canada, chances are you’ve stumbled upon one of our nation’s best kept musical secrets, Michael Feurerstack. Michael has an impressive list of projects that he has assisted on as well as an even more impressive list of fellow collaborators on his new release Tambourine Death Bed. An all-around nice guy, and a deadly guitarist — discover him now!

THE WOODEN SKY Baby Hold On

Here are some more nice guys. Maybe you were fortunate enough to attend our acapella instore with Toronto’s Wooden Sky, but if not you may get a second chance (stay tuned). For now, enjoy this sweet lo-fi stripped down version of Baby Hold On!

THE GIG

THURSTON MOORE Friday October 3rd BILTMORE CABARET

Ex-Sonic Youth (get over it, folks) Thurston Moore will be in town early in October ahead of the release of his new LP ‘The Best Day’. Described as a record that showcases Moore’s willingness to take his sound all over the map, this new batch of songs draws upon a ‘cavalcade of disciplines ranging from free improvisation to acoustic composition to black/white metal/noise disruption’, while focusing on the freedom rock energy of Crazy Horse. Seeing Thurston live is always a sonic adventure and a small club like The Biltmore should make for some up close experimental guitar voyeurism. Bonus: the openers are Sebadoh! A deeper look at upcoming gigs below…

Start your evening with canapés and libations, and then move though the school’s eight professional teaching kitchens to meet mystery chefs, visiting from BC and beyond, who will each offer a tasting-sized portion of sustainable and lesser-known local seafood delicacies for you to try.

Chefs’ Table Society member, Slow Fish member, and Fish Counter co-owner/chef Robert Clark has been evangelizing sustainability in seafood since 1998 and is spearheading this event along with Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts executive chef, and Chefs’ Table Society member Julian Bond. At its heart the event is intended to raise awareness for Slow Fish and its role in protecting our oceans. The Chefs’ Table Society has a mandate to support BC producers and sustainable food production, and is happy to present this event.

Tickets are available here for $79 +fees, and include the reception, samples and beverages, and the chance to interact with eight acclaimed chefs, who will only be revealed to you once you are there. There are only 100 tickets for sale, so seafood lovers are advised to act now and not miss what is sure to be an exciting and delicious affair.

ABOUT THE FISH COUNTER

IMG_4105

At The Fish Counter, our goal is to provide sustainable, healthy, and high-quality seafood to the Main Street community. And we’re all Ocean Wise. We focus on local and seasonal seafood from producers who care as much about the health of our oceans as we do. Think of us as your farmers’ market, for seafood. We offer a selection of take out items like fish and chips, soups and chowders, fish tacos, and oyster po’ boys. Our coolers are teeming with salsas, aioli, dips, spreads and broths in reusable mason jars. We have an ever-changing array of ready-made items to take home and heat up for busy families. Healthy, ocean-friendly and delicious.

The Fish Counter is a place that serves the whole community. We want you to feel comfortable coming in, whether you are buying a small piece of fish, grabbing a chowder to go, or just want to get out of the rain and learn more about sustainable seafood. Mike and Rob are here to help.

SMOKE BREAK #1124 | Understanding How And Why Tree Leaves Change Colour In Fallhttp://scoutmagazine.ca/2014/09/22/smoke-break-1124-understanding-how-and-why-tree-leaves-change-colour-in-fall/ http://scoutmagazine.ca/2014/09/22/smoke-break-1124-understanding-how-and-why-tree-leaves-change-colour-in-fall/#comments Mon, 22 Sep 2014 16:48:40 +0000 http://scoutmagazine.ca/?p=97261 [...]]]> Chemistry-of-the-Colours-of-Autumn-Leaves-v2-1024x724

(via) Fall officially arrives tomorrow. If you want to understand the chemistry behind the imminent turning of Vancouver’s leaves, study this handy chart by Compound Interest. Short version: “Leaves are green because of chlorophyll, yellow because of a combination of carotenoids and flavonoids, red because of carotenoids combined with anthocyanins, and orange when only carotenoids are present. The chart is presented with detailed explanations of each of the different pigments.” The more you know…

Vancouver, BC | The Kopecky Family Band isn’t a family in the traditional sense – rather than being bound by blood and heritage, this band of six young musicians is connected by circumstance, miles on the odometer, and the songs they have crafted over the years. It is the Kopecky Family Band’s music that has brought them widespread attention and critical acclaim – the New York Times giving the recommendation that “If You Like Fleetwood Mac, Try the Kopecky Family Band”. (This is a great reminder to both check out KFB and give Rumours a spin on the turntable tonight).

Original founding member Kelsey Kopecky is also bringing something non-traditional on tour with the band – her love of yoga. Vancouver has (of course) been selected as a city to be a part of “Yopecky,” Kelsey’s pre-show, mixed level vinyasa yoga class! Just bring a mat and a spirit of adventure for some heart opening and movement. Kopecky Family Band and guest Avid Dancer play the Biltmore Cabaret Friday September 26 – advance tickets available online, at Red Cat, Zulu Records & the Biltmore. Learn more about the Biltmore after the jump…

About The Biltmore

blights1

For over 50 years, the Biltmore has been a fixture in the community as both a public house for Vancouverites and a platform for groundbreaking musical performances.

With the revitalization of historic Mount Pleasant, the bar was reopened in 2007 as The Biltmore Cabaret, with a fresh focus to recapture its musical tradition. Drawing from the rich local scene in Vancouver as well as the best in Canadian and international touring acts, The Biltmore Cabaret showcases talent from across a wide spectrum of music and the arts.

We have a fantastic sound and lighting system at The Biltmore, check out our full tech specs here.
