LOAD – Loaded with Potential

Sometimes I do not know how I come across these diamonds in the rough, well rough diamond maybe. They go by the name “LOAD“, a Winnipeg based band. Although they are a little rough, they have some extraordinary stand out tracks, so there is plenty of potential there. The band consists of Carrie Luce Forsythe – Vocals, Avi-G – Bass, Johnny Stewart – Guitar, Performing With: Darren Achorn – Drums, Jimmy Barr (Portishead) – Programming, Dale Wallace (Emerson Drive) – Synth /Horns, Chris Burke-Gaffney – Programming. You can definitely notice the Portishead influence in their sound, but they also have a very Lou Reed guitar style, put that together with their hypnotic vocals and trip hop production and you’ve got a winning combination. They are currently working on releasing their third album. Take a listen to a few of the songs below and I am sure you will be anticipating it’s release just as I am….
