Now that Toronto’s NXNE festival is all wrapped up, audiophiles like me can finally return to the realm of recorded music where everything sounds way fucking better. I love a live concert as much as the next person, but when artists are part of a long, schedule sensitive line up and therefore only have about 1.9 minutes to plug in and tune up never mind properly whip through sound check before hand, it’s likely their sets are going to sound kinda poopy. Sympathy in such scenarios is scarce, but due.
I didn’t see Heartbeat Hotel when they played NXNE, but I did hear rumour their slot was pretty good. “Windowsill 1” isn’t exactly a new track – it was released in 2010. However their video did come out a few months ago but has disgustingly low views. So watch it, aight?
