Busty and the Bass
Busty and the Bass is a nine-piece collective of musicians from across North America who met during their first week studying music at McGill University. Originally born out of small Montreal house parties, over the last three years 'Busty' has evolved into a tight electro-funk band and become one of Canada's most vibrant and exciting new bands.
With wood, brass, and bone in hand, these nine young gentlemen hit the stage. Together, something primal emerges: an identity, a harmony, an underlying power. This force exists in every one of us. We are the tapping feet and swinging hips of a generation. We are Busty and the Bass.
For the indie psych rock outfit Lost Cousins, grappling with life transitions—and the domino effects of those choices—is at the core of their sprawling, celestial-sounding debut LP to be released in 2018 via Pheromone Recordings. The record is a sweeping, anthemic tribute to the things one loses or gives up; the places one longs for, especially as one grows up and moves on. Pushing forward and leaning into change isn’t as easy as it looks. It’s a record that spans the entire country and collapses back into itself; feeling like a swelling tide in the ocean with a significant, sweet comedown like when the tide settles on the beach. The band has toured throughout Canada and the United States, including opening spots for The Strumbellas, Hollerado, and The Wooden Sky. Recent Canadian festival performances include sets at Wayhome (2015), CityFolk (2016), NXNE (2017), and Hillside Festival (2017). Lost Cousins is Dylan Cantlon Hay (bass guitar), Cam Duffin (drums), Lloyd McArton (guitar, saxophone), and Thomas Dashney (keyboards).
