Happy Friday! I’m blogging from a bar…neat.
There were a few songs I wanted to put up that I heard this week but didn’t get a chance so let’s run down a few.
I’ll start with Vancouver’s C.R. Avery. The East Van poet has a gravely voice. He tells stories with very specific references. I kinda enjoy plucking through them all. Being a Vancouver myself, it all feels real close to me.
“Do you think Robert Pattison is the new James Dean?”
This song as a Seahawks shoutout. Is CR a 12?
The dude has a bunch of tour dates in BC.
Sept. 29 – Harbour House Hotel, Salt Spring Island, BC
Sept . 30 – Victoria Event Center, Victoria, BC
Oct. 1 – Cobalt, Vancouver, BC
Oct. 5 – TBC, Vernon, BC
Oct. 6 – Dream Café, Penticton, BC
Oct. 7 – Spirit Bar, Nelson, BC
Bring the noise Dragonette! The alt-pop group from Toronto have a new one called “Sweet Poison” featuring Dada. Whenever I see the title, my brain thinks “Sweet Potato.”
New record is called Royal Blues and it’s out on November 11th.
Ruth from Minnesota sent this over. Ruth, it’s not a full song! Artist is Jahkoy
This song came up next on Soundcloud…huh. I like this.
Finally Anna sent over Blonder. Chill Brooklyn synthy tunes.
Happy Friday! DJing tonight and tomorrow. Then off to Victoria for one magical day of Rifflandia before starting the insanity all over again.
Go with yourself.
