Duotang, Leonard Cohen & Shows # 638 & 639

Duotang's New Occupation

Forming in the summer of 1995, Duotang are a two-piece band out of Winnipeg, Manitoba. The band’s sound has been called pop power and mod rock, it blends those genres with a touch of garage influences for good measure. Following a live show with The Smugglers, the band was signed to Mint Records in 1996. The two band members Rod Slaughter and Sean Allum released three full-length albums as Duotang on Vancouver based label Mint Records. Shortly after the release of 2001’s The Bright Side, Duotang went on hiatus. In 2014, the band began performing live shows sporadically and in 2016 they released their fourth album. New Occupation is the band’s first new album in fifteen years. It was released via Stomp Records. Two videos have been released for this album. A video was made for the album track “Karma Needs To Come Around”, a bass and drum heavy track with splashes of synthesizer and subtle maracas. The second video is for “Nostalgia’s A Vice”.

Leonard Cohen

On Thursday November 10th, it was announced that Canadian musician and poet Leonard Cohen passed away. This came as a shock to many as he had just released a new full-length album, You Want It Darker at the end of October. Just a few weeks ago, Revolution Rock celebrated the music of Leonard Cohen. The show featured a song from each of his albums and several from his now last full-length album You Want It Darker. This episode aired as a repeat on November 12th, 2016 in tribute to Leonard Cohen. If you would like to read the post that I made about Leonard Cohen for that episode you can view that here.
