February 6th, 2018

=====================================================

Dr. Disc is proud to stock the brand new, self-titled Edgar Breau CD ($11.99)!  Look for it on our Hamilton Local Music wall display rack.

Breau is a veteran of the Hamilton music scene, and he is best known as the lead singer of the seminal, critically acclaimed,proto-punk band Simply Saucer who have now reached cult status! Breau’s later albums have seen him evolve into full-on singer-songwriter territory and his haunting, melancholy vocals compliment his textured, ethereal music perfectly.

=====================================================

Dr. Disc proudly unveils our new Music Book section!

For any of you music AND book lovers, Dr. Disc has now become your mecca! We’ve got a brand, spankin’ new Music Book section containing both new and second hand books covering many genres, styles and facets of music! We’re staying away from those gratuitous picture books front-racked at the big box stores, and are concentrating primarily on really good reads and also hard to find, out of print titles.

We’ve also got a full row of featured Hamilton and area authors or books on Hamilton subjects (related to music and the arts) that we will be carefully curating as time goes by, swapping out titles and keeping it fresh!

Hopefully you can stop by soon, check out the Music Book section, and treat both your ears and your cranium to some worthwhile stimulation!

NEW S.G. (STEVE) SINNICKS - T.I.H. (This is Home) CD now in stock!

December 12th, 2017

=====================================================

We’ve got the new S.G. (Steve) Sinnicks release in stock now. It’s aptly called ‘T.I.H.’, or, if you expand the acronym… This Is Home.

If you’re not familiar with Steve Sinnicks, here’s a great summary of the artist by David Hintz, Folkworld Magazine, EU:

Whether this Canadian Irishman plays solo guitar or sings in front of a sharp folk-rock band, his songs shine brightly. The key is that his clean, crisp vocals bring out the emotion and meaning of each line of his lyrics. The lyrics are filled with classic folk topics of politics, religion, and simple human emotion. Yet, I will put Sinnicks above much of the pack in terms of balancing direct dialect with poetic flourish. Again, the delivery sends it all forward with music that will stick to you, deeper with every listen. It is no surprise he has won awards with his songwriting in the past.

If you would like a preview of ‘T.I.H.’, than click HERE

The CD is now on sale at Dr. Disc for $14.99 + HST., and it’s proudly racked in our newly expanded wall display featuring Hamilton and area artists.
