BEATS & BEANS is our tribute to delicious coffee and great Canadian art. In each coffee and music box sets, we’ll be diving into an independent Canadian record label, one band at a time. Pairing each album to a bag of beans, we’re highlighting the hard work that goes into two things we can’t live without: coffee and music.
VOL. 1 Issue 1.
“Aghast” by Crones x Burundi Yandaro
The first BEATS & BEANS release will feature Crones’ latest album “Aghast” as well as “Scrambled Eggs”, a compilation album of Good Egg Records artists! Paired with these albums is the Burundi Yandaro, a chocolatey coffee with a fruity twist.
Crones have brought their hip-shakin’, boot-stompin’ live energy to this record, with a tightly written collection of hooky alt rock tracks. This release is particularly special to me, because in my two years living in Prince George I attended many a Crones show. The opening chords of “Whoopin’ Cough” will forever bring me back to those concerts and the cold Northern BC nights.
