Brian Borcherdt ‘Scout Leader’ Video


BRIAN BORCHERDT‘s new video for Scout Leader from his Coyotes directed by Scott Cudmore. A great and spooky video that suits Brian’s song-writing perfectly.

Contrived on ‘Garage Band’


CONTRIVED performed Not A Goodbye from Blank, Blank, Blank on Toro Magazine’s Garage Band just before heading over to the sold out Hand Drawn Dracula showcase at the Whipper Snapper gallery.

In WINTERSLEEP news… Welcome to the Night Sky was released in Europe this week on 147 Records with our Hand Drawn Dracula artwork!

HDD in The National Post

Hand Drawn Dracula filled a page of the National Post with photos, artwork and interviews. Read all about HDD in the article: ‘ABLE LABELS : Who would start a music imprint now? Only the passionate‘ by Mike Doherty.


“The label’s logo is a child-like sketch of a fanged creature’s head, but Mejia’s artwork, printed on “130-lb, double-thick, antique-stock” paper with hand-crafted packaging, is clinically precise and – crucial for branding purposes – undoubtedly recognizable. Borcherdt aspires to making HDD worthy of “a section in somebody’s CD shelf that’s not alphabetized like anything else: It sits alone because it’s aesthetically pleasing and has a certain feel, like something they’re excited to have.” – National Post
