Artist: Tristan Psionic, Album: The Sounds Of Tristan Psionic, Song: Let It Go

Tristan Psionic were a rock band from Hamilton, Ontario that began recording in the early nineties.  The Sounds Of Tristan Psionic, was their debut release in 1994.  It was released on indie label, Sonic Unyon Records, which the band owned and operated.  They were Sandy McIntosh, Mark Milne, Gary McMaster and Tim Potocic.  Sonic Unyon remains today, however the band doesn't.  They packed it in following their third release in 2000.  The label has played a pivotal role in bringing alternative rock from the underground to the mainstream.  Since their inception, they have represented Canadian bands like Hayden, Eric's Trip, hHead, Treble Charger, Sianspheric (see blog 1/17/11), Tricky Woo (see blog 2/4/11), Young Rival (see blog 4/19/11) and Thrush Hermit (see blog 9/5/10) to name a few.  They have also released albums from other international artists like the Pixies, Crooked Fingers and Death Cab For Cutie.  These guys are quite ambitious and it's amazing that they found time to release albums of their own.  Let It Go is a wonderful power pop nugget from their first release.  You can hear the song on You Tube (  The album is available for download on Itunes.  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
