Meet the Hottest Local Band in All of Saskatoon

  • Axl Rosenberg

Saskatoon’s Maelstrom Vale say that their song “Doomed Traveler” is “about the struggle with depression.” So their video for the song makes perfect sense: if you can watch this and not laugh, you are truly beyond help. I began to do a Virgin Steele-style breakdown of everything ridiculous about the clip, but I quickly realized the friggin’ thing would be the length of Infinite Jest. There is something to savor in every single frame. There’s also a fun mystery to solve: why the fuck is the singer standing in a massive wet spot?
