Jay Som shared a new song today called “Pirouette.” The song will be part of a 2-song 7-inch coming out this year.

Melina Duterte says of the songs, “both of these tracks were made during the spring of 2016 – the first demo stages for Everybody Works. They were fun to write and record but felt out of place on the track​ ​list during the finalization of the album. These tracks remain close to my heart and I’m really grateful they’re finally out in the world.”

Happy Thursday.

Go with yourself.

Hey happy birthday and shout out to me!

Let’s talk about the Vancouver punker band NEEDLES//PINS. The band was featured in a DailyHive article of all place… 6 up and coming local Vancouver bands to catch this year. Actually a pretty good list. I really enjoyed NEEDLES//PINS…so thank you  uh guest author.

Gritty vocals smash up against power pop punk for an interesting and modern sound.

Nirvana

For the past couple weeks I’ve been reintroducing this old remix I have of Nirvana’s “Polly.” The remix is done by Bruno Be, and it seems like overtime I put it up someone asks, “what is that?”  So let me repost it up on the old MAS blog.

Happy 2018 to you! Thank you for being part of this music loving blog community.

we are fury

We Are Fury are a Vancouver based production duo. They sent over their latest EDM track, “Don’t Forget”

That’s alright. Nice, bright, big sounding dance floor house jam. Earmilk did a better write up than I can do.

FOUR SLEEPS TILL CHRISTMAS! Went out for lunch with my boss today at Hawksworth in Vancouver. I read a Daily Hive the other day on the best things to put in your mouth at this notable restaurant and the burger made the list. In fact, their burger usually makes any listicle of “Vancouver’s Best Burgers.” Never had it before… my and Dustin changed that today. Pretty special. Would do again.

Christmassy time in the city. #Vancouver

Michael sent over this track to check out from LA singer Billie Eilish. The song is called “Watch” and it was remixed by Xie. Xie doesn’t say much but does say this, “If u don’t know who Billie Eilish is yet, u will. So fun remixing this insanely talented artist!

Very chill. I like.

How many sleeps till Christmas now? 4? Sure. My kids are losing their minds. I am like… just right on the goal line for Christmas shopping. Just gotta punch it in. Tonight maybe?

I am never really done.  There is almost something a little more to add or one more person I want to buy for. Ahh, that’s a good problem to have.|

It did snow here yesterday. That was a thing. Got home from work and had to stay out there shoveling. Today I was salting!

I don’t know how I went down a Silversun Pickups rabbit hole the other day, but the song “latchkey Kids” from their 2016 record Better Nature came up and it reminded how much I love that song. So then I saw they put a remix/acoustic ep maybe 6 months ago, and there is “Latchkey Kids” remixed by modern rocker Joywave. OK then!

My wife took the kids to the mall to see Santa the other day. The oldest, Madelyn is a veteran, but the younger two had a time. jack is almost 4 and is JAZZED on all things Christmas and presents. Coral said he was bouncing on the way and in line to see him. But when the big moment came, he just froze up and was very shy. Overwhelmed with emotion maybe? I feel you little guy. The baby/, well he just babied.

Merry Christmas! What are we, 11 days and counting?
