New music: Fingaz and Pleuto have to make some “Vents”

Calgary, AB – Calgary artists Pleuto and Fingaz just teamed up to hit us with this new single titled “Vents.” This song is a spew-off of disjointed ideas and thoughts with that classic Pleuto sound that I’ve been hailing as THE sound of Calgary.

There’s no real structure to “Vents”; Pleuto hits us with the first and third verses, while Fingaz comes in on the second and last verses. But it sounds like one big ol’ freestyle divided up into four verses. There’s no hook. Which usually I’d be mad about. But the track is called “Vents.” They’re venting on us. It wasn’t meant to have a hook. Check it out below.

Review: Miguel brings his Wildheart tour to Toronto’s Sound Academy

Toronto, ON – Musicians like Prince, Queen, Guns N’ Roses and Michael Jackson dominated the 80s and set the bar unbelievably high for live musical performances.

As such, very few artists that represent my generation have been able to measure up to the superhuman standards that were established during the 1980s and before.

With that said, one of the few songwriting and musical performance anomalies of my generation is undoubtedly Miguel and I didn’t truly have an appreciation for his level of artistry until I saw it firsthand.
