For the fourth and final day of Culture Collide we were treated to the spectacular Block Party, with stages, food trucks and the expansive crowd creating a vibrant scene at Los Angeles’ Reservoir Street in Echo Park. Arriving in the afternoon to find Los Angeles’ locals soaking up both the quality live music on offer, as well as the Californian sunshine, I knew I was in for a great final night of Culture Collide.

I’ve got a confession to make. Upon being given the nod to review of Montreal’s newest offering, Paralytic Stalks, I went against my self appointed writer’s guidelines and read other reviewer’s reviews. What a fool, I hadn’t even listened to the album yet and there I was thinking that I would be able to get some sort of advantage out of allowing myself to be influenced by other people’s thoughts. How wrong I was. Most of what I read was negative, so I went in to my first listen with the expectation that I would be disappointed with Paralytic Stalks, but disappointed I was not.
