To celebrate such a great festival, Beliefs are playing the NXNE volunteer party which is totally open to the public for the band portion of the evening. We will be playing at around 11, so those of us that were busy running around last week, come catch us on Sunday at Wrong Bar!

NXNE was really good to us this year. We were on two amazing showcases with bands that I’m truly a huge fan of like Porcelain Raft, Mac DeMarco, A Place To Bury Strangers, Rituals, and Dusted.

My Bloody Valentin’s Only Shallow

For the 20th anniversary of Loveless in November, Beliefs put out this cover of Only Shallow for a compilation in which Toronto bands covered the whole record. Hope you enjoy. (Recorded by Josh Korody)

Josh at Candle Recording Studio

Josh “recordy” Korody and I had an impromptu demoing session this afternoon. We are toying around with the idea of either releasing a seven inch or just slowly writing and recording a second album. The process is really the same… get in the studio. This is a photo of Josh with his new console at Candle taken by me. – Jesse

Heaven + Totally Fucked Up

Old nostalgia for my old band Heaven. This is the old blog of Milo from The Big Pink. He suggests you listed to our song and watch this video at the same time. -Jesse

dontdiewonderingmusic: Heaven + Totally Fucked Up

“When I younger I was obsessed with Gregg Araki, Totally Fucked Up, The Doom Generation and Nowhere, collectively known as The Teenage Apocalypse Trilogy. Torontos’ Heaven could have been too. This is the only scene i could find from Totally Fucked Up… Turn the volume off on the Youtube clip and let Heaven soundtrack it for you.”
