To your heart’s content

I just can’t keep it to myself. It would be CRUEL. To both you, myself, and Ruby Coast.

I was excited when I saw the link to download their new album Whatever This is. I still remember being downtown in a tiny bookstore in Sarnia. My friends were playing some music so I decided to go. And that is when they hit my ears. It was superb, and they gave my friend and I a cd with maybe five songs on it. We must have listened to it 400 times that summer.

Now I’ve seen these boys both here in Ottawa, and sometimes when I hit up my hometown they happen to be there. At their last show I purchased a bracelet, which I get plenty of compliments on.

Good sounds ahead. Pinky Swear.

 

Anything Sufjan Stevens gets my blood pumping. So of course his interview with Pitchfork attracted all of my attention.

Click on Sufjan’s face if you care to read it. [Of course you want to read it]…

I recently found myself looking at records on Bank Street, I think I’ve said this before but I will say it again. Essential vinyl = WARPAINT. It’s on the top of my list. After groceries. Unfortunately, I can’t survive on record sleeves and crisp sounds. Too bad, though.

I’ve been repping The Fool pretty hard but I also managed to find an EP Exquisite Corpse that includes this lovely track…

Now, I was on quite a hunt last month for some track and new artists. My friend turned me onto something I had never heard of, but I sensed potential [he has really good taste]. How had I never listened to Kids & Explosions before? So I decided to check out Shit Computer and I was pretty satisfied with the beats I heard.

If you like what you hear and you want some more, you can get the album here.

And you probably know this is coming. My obsession is neverending. Yes, Toro Y Moi. February 22nd is getting closer…and you know what this means? Underneath The Pine can finally be yours.

Until then, you can watch Chaz Bundick dance and stuff in the Still Sound video. Yep, he’s still got it.

Even though I hate to do it, I have some serious research to do. CRTC, Usage Based Billing and all that fun stuff. You should actually care though, especially if you live in Canada. Internet metering won’t make you happy, nor your bank account. If you are a streamer of television shows and like to download music and the like, well…that might just have to change.

You can read about it on Open Media, and here.

There is going to be a rally at Parliament on February 12th, you’ll probably find me there with my microphone. There’s more info on the Facebook Group.
