rise against

I’ve always liked Rise Against. The Chicago melodic punks have a new record out on June 9th called Wolves.

Tier 8th album took the band to Nashville to record. “Living in Nashville drove home that we can’t just focus on our differences,” Tim McIlrath says. “If we can stop and talk to each other, face to face, we might realize our common ground. We are all wolves in the same pack, circling at the gates.”

I went out with my boss from Match last night. Jason took me to some weird subterranean suburban bar. Possibly one of the finest dives in the Lower Mainland.

WTF @jasontexasranger80 ….where are you taking me? #backintime

crockett

Charley Crockett loves in Austin, Texas and jams out that modern vintage sounding old school R&B.

I was watching this Wired video on a vinyl pressing robot and loved the sound of the record they use off the top.

Quick Shazam, internet search, and here we are.

That’s a cool record. My wife and I sometimes talk about opening up a little bar. My bar will be like how this record sounds.

or maybe it’ll be like Led Zeppelin into a Tesla song. Still working on it.

blame

Bastille‘s new single “Blame” fro the record Wild World has racked up the most new spins this week on US alternative radio.

***

I added Spoon’s “Hot Thoughts” to my Alternative to What? playlist. Coral and I jammed this on the freeway down to Seattle this week. The song came out of relative nowhere on US radio, and is the 9th most active jam climbing.

jacob-banks

This one came down the pipe from a singer called Jacob Banks.

The tracks “features new production from the Futuristics and a verse from Boogie.”

And I don’t want to be a super cry baby….I get that people need to eat….but man, my Cloud Nothings tickets arrived for their show at the Biltmore in February. $50 for a pair of tickets to see an indie rock band. Nuts. The service charge was almost as much as buying a third ticket!

How many sleeps till Christmas? Getting close! Can’t wait. I have some Island time in the forecast, so looking forward to a little holiday and catching up with Victoria friends and family.

Go with yourself.

snow-day

SNOW DAY! It rains a ton in Vancouver but it rarely snows…especially downtown which is right on the ocean. But today, we are getting a nice dusting.

I have a could remixes to share.

I DJ most every weekend at Match Pub in New West…Friday had a group of Pharmacists from Surrey partying and few wanted Indian music. I have a few songs but it is not a strength of my playlist. Some folks sent me a few requests and remixes like this beauty.

DJ Frenzy blasting a Bhangra style of popular Indian music with Bruno Mars “24K Magic.” I am getting to the point where I am also recognizes some of the Indian music in this mix. Neat.

Kygo…remixing one of the top songs out right now. You get it.

lost-frequencies

Downtown today, I ran into my cousin Monica…that was random. I also heard this song I vaguely recognized.

It was a spin on 1993 “What Is Love” originally made famous by Haddaway! Belgian producer Lost Frequencies modernized the 90s dance track.

Maybe this fun throwback will help with all the grey rain today.

Go with yourself.
