This year has been busy for the members of Cape Breton’s Slowcoaster. With the release of The Darkest of Discos, the band has toured Canada twice, playing well-received showcases at festivals ranging from Canadian Music Week to the Stan Rogers Folk Festival. The album’s title track peaked at No. 21 on Canadian radio charts, and Slowcoaster won a 2011 East Coast Music Award for Alternative Rock Album of the Year. Equally exciting was when the band played in Tokyo this past winter. “We loved every minute of it,” says bassist Mike LeLievre. “Every corner had a new experience waiting. It’s busier there at 3 a.m. on a Sunday than Toronto on a Saturday night.” The band hits the road again in September, with a trip to Asia on the horizon.
