Cleft - Live at ArcTanGent

Metal Monday? Of sorts. These guys are blisteringly awesome. They who are no more. Must have been a thrill to see them in person. I think this is sort of what is being called prog math rock or whatever. Down with labels. Up with noise.

Jellyfish - Ignorance Is Bliss

I mean, I'm not really sure what you're supposed to think either.

Thiwe - I Am Woman

Not feeling the video but I'm digging the production on this track.

Rush - Xanadu

When you absolutely must have epic and Canadian, look no further.

Need an electronic smoothie for this Tuesday afternoon.

Toadies - Possum Kingdom

These guys have a new album. I haven't listened to it yet, but will get around to it. This song was the shizzle back in the day. Thems were the days.

SonReal - Can I Get A Witness

This song is just ridiculously catchy. I like this cat's production.

Tacocat - I Hate The Weekend

Remember kids, it's only cheating if you get caught.

The Tragically Hip - 38 Years Old

To my great shame this is the first Hip song I've ever posted. I don't even know how that's possible. On another note I've now posted more days consecutively than I did in the entirety of January to September, and in another week I'll have blown past 2016's record as well. That may just have something to do with it. It's been a helluva week in a brutal year. Rest easy Gord.

A Perfect Circle - The Doomed

Been a while since we had a new track from these guys.

Could we get a double dose of Maynard in 2018?

Hanging Out with John Dunsworth

No music today. Just some memories of a beauty no longer with us.

Cheers to you John.

Scary Pockets - I Feel It Coming

Tread carefully when going the cover route. It's been done ad nauseam but I dig these guys, just a bunch of random musicians jazzing it up. Think I might actually like this one better than the original, which is really only saved by Daft Punk's production.

Jimmy Swift Band - 80s Runway Model

I'm in Fredericton right now and posting this with telekinesis. These guys aren't playing here tonight but it would be better if they were.

Hey Rosetta! - The Simplest Thing

I remember seeing Tim Baker play for the first time at the Wilser's Room many moons ago, a quiet little songwriter session right around the time when the first EP came out. It was a game-changer. The whole room was mesmerised with what we were hearing.

Now after more than a decade of traveling the world the band is taking a well-deserved break. It's not really a surprise, they've been planning their escape since the beginning. Maybe a couple years down the road we'll catch them at a reunion show or on a random corner in St. John's would seem fitting.

This song stuck with me then and still done many years later. No video for this one. Hit play, close your eyes, and go wherever it takes you.

Joyful Noise - Escalator To Sussex

I'm heading to Freddy Beach tomorrow. It's been a while. Sadly these cats aren't playing this weekend. Maybe I'll run into them out and about and demand an impromptu jam session. I just want to hear some groovy chunes!

Creature And The Woods - Holy Hell

I haven't listened to a lot of these guys but this song is great.

Mastodon - Steambreather

The new album seems to have attracted divided opinions. It certainly has a progressive sound to it, and if that it more accessible to some I'm not sure why that has to be a bad thing. Personally I think it's awesome, easily one of my favorite discs of the year.

Khruangbin - Dern Kala

Yesterday was mathysomethingerother. Today is chilly hipster funk step.

Childish Gambino - Redbone

Mr. Glover's tunes are a bit hit-and-miss for me, but this one is undeniably swish. Here's how him and producer Ludwig Göransson put 'er together.

Nine Inch Nails - Just Like You Imagined

Words? Who needs words?

Been getting into the NIN again lately. Dunno why. Still dope.

Mike Garson is the cat killin' it on the piano. He's 63 at the time of this performance.
