Victoria’s Mike Edel shared a brand new song today called “Go With You.”

Mike wrote about the song, I wanted to create an optimistic indie-pop anthem for 2018’s dwindling days of summer and beyond. I began working with producer Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) after sending him demos while he was living north of the arctic circle in Norway. We quickly adopted a consistency is boring mantra with the new material.  

“Go With You” is a song about change and vectoring forward into the unknown without regret. I love the synth lines and the hi-hat drums. It’s a departure for me, both sonically and rhythmically, and I’m very into it.”

Happy Friday!

DJing tonight at Match in New West then on Sunday I’ll be DJing a short set at Brewery & The Beast before moving over to the mainstage to MC. It is supposed to be 33 degrees in Vancouver. Gnarly.

Go with yourself.

black atlass
Ruth from Minnesota sent one from a “young Canadian artist” called Black Atlass.

The R&B singer rose to prominence when a song was used in a Louis Vuitton commercial or ad campaign. His second album just came out and is called Pain & Pleasure. I’ve only heard this one song “Shadows” so I don’t have a hot take on his music as a whole. But I love the chill retro sounding vibes of “Shadows.” I think it is a sad song, but it hurts so good.

I DJ’d an emo night at the Railway Stage & Beer Cafe in Vancouver last week. Almost zero people came which was mightily disappointing. Despite the horrendous turnout I must have done something marginally right because they want to try it again. If you find yourself in Vancouver on a Sunday in September, please come! OI need some bodies on the floor.

Go with yourself.

Pitchfork released their Top Rock Records of 2017…. different spin from years past but as the website continues to diversify from their indie rock leaning beginnings into all sort of genres, it’s kinda nice having an easier to digest list.

Top of the Pops for Pitchfork was London guy King Krule and his record The Ooz.

The song they selected to check out off the record is called “Dum Surfer.”

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.

Go with yourself.
