I wrote some stuff over at @musicnovascotia about tonight! EXCITED. -JM /////////// We've shared the same haircut and clothes long before we knew each other. Then one day about 6 years ago we said Hey, I like you. We should be friends. It stuck. SUPER excited and proud to open up for a person I have admired long before the rest of the world had the privilege. -JM @inflightsafety @riaisawake at @groundswellmusic Fest tn! #mnstakeover

PRACTISE. PRACTISE. PRACTISE, KIDS! 🍻😁☕️️
You know you wanna hear it. Don't fight it. 🎅🏻🌲✌🏻️/////////////////// Recorded a few years ago and mixed last year I posted this track on my facebook page with the caption Seriously. What kind of self-respecting artist covers a Wham! song?! I expected a few jokey posts but instead I think this song finally got a proper release. Getting a truly surprising and overwhelming response to the track this year (thanks @live105hrm and @cbcradio ). Do check it out and share with your loved ones... or enemies. Hope you enjoy and happy holidays. -JMx #wham #lastchristmas #christmascover #xmascover #christmassongs #1980s #whamcover
Matt's notes on this 90s work horse synth are a thing of beauty. 🎹💙 //////////////// This keyboard (Yamaha S80) has been on duty for almost every show we have ever played since the beginning of time - well, IFS Standard Time. At least the Rhodes sound, the cello samples or the Analog Synth pad is on every record. Those sounds have stood the test of time (using one of them today). Daniel has the original unit and this one was picked up in Boston from a Church during a road trip to see @m83music - all our original sounds on it though. There was no particular reason why we (Jon Sheen - who pioneered the early IFS soundscapes) bought this synth in the first place other than the amazing Mellotron/String sounds. It's still here and still kicking. Only @robbietick and Ian from @alanayorke are the only others to wield this beast. Love for the synth players out there making 'rock' bands far more interesting.
If you are wondering why the show on Saturday sounded more like a 2016 Ferrari and less like a 1986 Chevette it is because of this guy. One of the best sound people I know. He has donated a ton of time and energy to the band over the years. What was his last gig before mixing IFS at 1am in Truro? The opening and closing ceremonies of The Olympics. THE. OLYMPICS. Carl Gosine everybody. Carl thank you for still returning my emails even though you are now the Beyonce of sound people. We 💙 you.
We survived the time change and have this foto to prove it. Thank you for being such a amazing and attentive late night crowd! Loved every minute of it. 💙🙌🏻 @truronsmw - @musicnovascotia you make amazing moments possible ///////// #repost 📷: amazing @kestrelsband
Hi. 👋🏻 /////////// Tonight at 1245 w/ @kestrelsband x @quietparade x @voguedots x @hellodelaware x @threesheetmuzik at @musicnovascotia fest
Truro has decided to allow us back after our last show in the country bar only contained one Johnny Cash riff! Nov 5 at Holiday Inn for @musicnovascotia's @truronsmw 2016 ! 🍩🍕☕️️ w/ @kestrelsband x @quietparade x @voguedots x @hellodelaware + more! //////// This is our last public performance this year. Do come and hang out ! 📷 by @megsapixel - (One Zach M missing from photo)
Uncle Glen and baby Roman are getting ready for tonight's show! 💙
Post jam and right after I asked the bar tender at @unfilteredbrewing wearing a @metz_theband shirt if he had any Enya. He was not impressed. //////////Assembling Voltron for the outdoor @marketsquaresj show on Sep 2 w/ @adamawashburn 🍺(missing one @mattmscott + @riffgunner )
We say goodbye to Gord tonight. The long goodbye. Big love to all who have been touched by their music. 💙⚡️#tragicallyhip #FinalHipShow #gorddownie // Thank you @cbc_music for this gift.
I am visiting Iceland and I felt like it would be remiss not to visit the studio that brought us all those seminal, life-changing, life-affirming, influential to this band @sigurros albums. This is the studio in Mossfellsbaer, formerly a swimming pool, renovated by Sigur Ros and friends in the late 90s. I urge you to put on Sigur Ros today and revisit those beautiful as-the-Icelandic-scenery records. -- JMx 🇮🇸
Friendz! See you in November for @truronsmw. Gonna be 🔥🔥🔥. Excited for beery hotel hangs and maybe some sweet diner foods with @riaisawake @mardeenphoto @alanayorke @likeamotorcycle likely green tea with @gabpapillon guitar pedal geek outs with @kestrelsband beard contest with @dave.sampson fashion tips with @mookenney and much more!! -IFSx
This is 'The Coast Is Clear'. A record that dramatically changed all our lives and the trajectory of the band. 2016 is the 10th year anniversary its release on Dead Daisy (@emmgryner) + @outside_music. We are strongly considering doing a '10 Year Anniversary' release on vinyl (remix by John, remaster w/ @joaocarvalhomastering) + some other goodies (bsides, lyrics, booklet, ?). -------> Is this something ANYONE would be interested in?! Please let us know your thoughts! That will help us greatly. THANK YOU in advance - IFSx💙⚓️ #TCIC10
Nice note from @tomshavana today. Go grab some amazing crafty pints and they would be happy to put on our record for ya.
