A band from Halifax (Mauno) plays with Jaunt (Toronto) on a Tuesday in November. Sounds simple enough. But listening to some of this music online reminds me of the hey-day in indie music that Phog used to host from both coasts of Canada. I can't put a finger on it, but it's nostalgic for us...and we know this show will be special.

“Still the noise in the mind, that is the first task,” wrote musicologist R. Murray Schafer in his defining book The Soundscape. “Then everything else will follow in time.” Nova Scotia four-piece Mauno sound like they’re striving for similar clarity on their adventurous new album Tuning — a record named after the book’s subtitle, and similarly brimming with grand ideas.

“The Soundscape changed my life,” says singer/guitarist Nick Everett. “It completely changed the way I move through the world.” The book is full of theories about the emotional attachments we form with our sonic environments. Tuning is therefore threaded with field recordings captured everywhere from Mauno's home in Halifax to Berlin and Heidelberg. “We wanted to include little pieces of the places we’ve lived,” says Everett.

There’s a raw, guttural, emotional punch to Tuning too — tales of botched romance and misdirected dreams play out above its bed of crunchy guitars and crashing cymbals. “It’s a collection of reflections on the feeling of finally leaving, on the complexity of relationships, on what the end of something means,” say Mauno.
