Vancouver rock & rollers, JAPANDROIDS, stopped by CFOX for an interview. The band begins the next leg of their tour at home on Thursday with three shows at Fortune Sound Club.

Brian King and David Prowse told us about touring in Russia and Dave shared a story about the time the boys had to catch a train from Moscow to Saint Petersburg.

After a night of hard drinking in Moscow after a show, they cut getting to the train a little tight. As they got to the train station the overnight train began pulling away from the platform. The band and their crew had to literally run after the movie train; throw their flight cases and luggage on then jump. One of their Russian roadies Zakhir….well he almost didn’t make it.

Producer Julie said, “The scene they described reminds of that time in Darjeeling Limited when they’re trying catch the train.”

Go with yourself.

I’ve driven a few Honda’s in my day. I had a Honda Jazz scooter in the mid ’00s. A civic, yes a CR-V, and now a Pilot.

When I heard this weirdo jam by Cuco…I immediately shared it with my wife Coral.


We went on a big ole Family Hike the other day. Missed the rain. It was nice.

Hours and hours, and days,and weeks and years and years of fun for the whole family!™


And since this is a music blog… this TOKiMONSTA track came through the inbox. I hit play because it was remixed by Sofi Tukker and I like their tunes on Alt Nation.

The promo pic of Snugs is a delight.

all american rejects

The All-American Rejects are a power poppin’ emotional rock band that started in 1999! Great vintage and I think I vaguely recall jamming a couple jammers when I was in Victoria at The Zone (jeezus, “Gives You Hell” has over 121 million spins on Spotify).

Prepping for a DJ set at a Law School grad party I came across this house remix of The All-American Rejects. I don’t know what I think about it. Are there other emotions house remixes out there? where are they? who made them? why?

Throwbacks almost always work. Now I’m an older DJ…I DJ parties for older people…generally… I can throw down Estelle’s “American Boy” with Kanye West and it still rips. But let’s modernize with a remix and see what happens. Lasers, wobbly modern bass sounds. Kanye is still there. Bless.

Lauv shows up on Sirius XM Hits 1…my wife Coral tends to like Lauv songs, so when this remix drifted by I had to hit play.

We don’t spend enough time talking how fucking dumb it is that Marshmello wears a ‘marshmallow’ hat/mask/helmet thing on stage in the year 2018. Does he have zero close friends that can take him aside and say, “what are you doing?”

Whatever, he probably has Selena Gomez’s number in his phone and I never will.

One of my current faves on Hits 1 is Zedd’s “Middle.” (please don’t tell me he wears a giant novelty ‘z’ helmet on stage, I am too fragile to process that right now).

The song is lovely, but like most modern pop right now, the song doesn’t pump like I need it too. Off to the Soundcloud! I found a couple remixes I like.

And here’s a David Guetta remix cuz sure.

Last night Coral and I took our daughter Madelyn to see AJR. They were in Vancouver with Ocean Park Standoff…a band that features Samantha Ronson. Huh. They were half decent too! They hit a lot harder live than they do on the music released. They vibe out to me like a positive Imagine Dragons. But let’s be real… every modern rock band that mucks around on Ableton and has the bass turned up and distorted sounds like Imagine Dragons.

I likes me AJR’s “Weak” and “Sober Up” but other than that, I had no idea what I was getting into. They too channelled Imagine Dragons but we’ll filter that through Christian Rock and The Greatest Show soundtrack? Sure, I haven’t seen too much like it. It was weird and wonderful. Their show looked like theatrical festival stage EDM. I’d share a remix of “Weak” but all the ones I heard on Soundcloud were “weak” to my ears.


Thank you @ajrbrothers…fun night in #Vancouver.

Happy Tuesday, allergies are killing me but I love the turn in the weather in Vancouver. Get after it while you can, the wheel turns again and it’s rain …

Let’s run down a quick list of hits. LOVE this remix of Bill Withers by Rhythm Scholars.

is that song real life? Wow.


Kasbo we like on the MAS Blog.


I thought I already blogged the original new one from Justice Skolnik…but I just imagined I did.  I DID download the song last week for my DJ set, so that’s a start.

Thanks for hanging out with me on this here music blog.

OH… NEW Pearl Jam today too! Read all about it on my CFOX Blog yeah?

Go with yourself.


We’ve rocked some ZHU on this blog in the past. His song “Faded” did alright.

The producer teamed up with Tame Impala for a song called “My Life.” Pitchfork didn’t like, but I’m a trash panda whose taste is less refined than that website. I love it.


Slow one tonight at the old Match Public House…. but that’s all good. I have a fistful of new remixes to test drive tonight and that’s easier when I don’t folks banging out requests.

Go with yourself.
