Vancouver electro-R&B trio DiRTY RADiO is getting ambitious this year, promising fans three EPs throughout 2013. The first in the series, called LiCK 1.0, is due out April 22. "It pushes us to constantly try and create the freshest sounds and it's also totally gangsta," the band said, via email.

With influences that range from Daft Punk to Steely Dan what can Whistler audiences expect from their live show? "Dragons, fireballs and a giant UFO," they said. "OK, no. That's for our set next year actually. We try to deliver a really high-energy show that sounds better than the record."

It's a lofty goal, considering their latest album, Cassette, received various stamps of approval last year with nominations for the Canadian Radio Music Awards and the SiriusXM Indies Awards. "Whistler is a great place," they added. "We can't wait to ride the gondola and sneak into random hot tubs in someone's backyard."

We'll keep an eye out.
