- By Divine Right "I Love A Girl" from the album Mutant Message (Hand Drawn Dracula, 2010)
This song has been in my head for almost 2 weeks. When I saw BDR @ The Casbah in Hamilton, Jose Contreras stood up, said "this is our soundcheck" and made me shit myself with this song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7IyoWJUvHjg
- Basia Bulat "The Shore" from the album Heart of My Own (Secret City, 2010) as found on La Blogotheque
Basia Bulat was short listed for the Polaris Prize in 2008 thanks to her previous record Oh My Darling. She's playing Sunday night @ The Casbah, and people should go. Autoharp to the rescue! http://www.blogotheque.net/Basia-Bulat,5264
- Yeasayer "Ambling Alp" from the album Odd Blood (Secretly Canadian / Mute / We Are Free, 2010)
If you enjoy the synthed up semi-dark pop of Yeasayer, check out La Blogotheque to see what happens when they strip it all away. If however, you love your electrons scattered... "Ambling Alp" http://www.myspace.com/yeasayer

A repeat artist, but it's been that kind of week...
