August 13 2015 – One of our favorite rock bands are at it again. The Dyadics are a duo from the London, Ontario area that combine explosive live sets with a remarkable catalog of music. They recently released their album Deus Ex Machina and are ready to bring their show to Toronto. The Dyadics are playing Bovine Sex Club on Saturday, August 29 with TJ Hollywood.
We have been listening to Deus Ex Machine quite steadily the last few weeks and it is truly an emotional voyage that is best experienced in its entirety. The songs all flow together but vary in style very much like Pink Floyd’s The Wall. Certainly one of the best albums released in 2015 the live rendition of it will be quite an experience. Physical copies can be purchased through here or Grooves Records out of London. It’s also available on iTunes for those that prefer their music in a digital format.
There are three chances to catch The Dyadics and the dates are as follows:
Thurs. Aug 27 – Phog Lounge – Windsor (w/ Brendan Friel)
Sat. Aug 29 – Bovine Sex Club – Toronto (w/ TJ Hollywood)
This show is highly recommended and we had a chance to talk to Matt Weston who plays drums and moog bass for the band (the other member is Kevin Kennedy who takes care of guitar and vocal duties). We asked Matt tell us the back story of Deus Ex Machina and here is what he offered:
The album was recorded at Swamp Songs Recording Studio in Lucan (out of my house). The concept was an evolving one. We took our time on this record. Kevin brought in some acoustic demos and notes for direction and then we worked out the arrangement and details together. The recording process was interrupted for weeks or months at a time due to Kevin’s touring schedule with The Marrieds or with me recording other projects. But that also gave us good chances to step back and look at it as a whole.
Overall, it is a pretty bleak record with some dark themes, both lyrically and musically. We don’t like to spell out the meaning of the lyrics because we’d like people to find their own reason to relate. But we think the narrative and the title will make sense for anyone willing to do a little digging.
To celebrate Deus Ex Machina we will give away an autographed copy of the CD to 2 different lucky winners – to enter email us at contests (at) tmakworld (dot) com and enter the subject line “The Dyadics”
