Weekly SNDtrack: Eight and a Half

Sorry for the delay folks! But better late than never.

Our soundtrack for the week comes to us via the NXNE festival where Eight and a Half played a show at Yonge and Dundas Square.

If you missed it, here’s their set list:

Eight and a Half (is the name a reference to the 1963 Federico Fellini masterpiece? Who knows?) is a Toronto based trio consisting of Justin Peroff (of Broken Social Scene) and Dave Hamelin and Liam O’Neil (of The Stills.)

They came together with the intention of creating music that was “distinctively different than the big-tent anthems their primary bands were known for.”

We’re a sucked for anything with an 80’s inspired synth, pretentious literature, cheap wine and beautiful melancholic women – and this video for “Go Ego” has it all!

Enjoy.
