DJ Notes

01) The O’Darling – “Venture Song”
02) Steph MacPherson – “Best of Us”
03) Forestry – “Owls”
04) The Laudronauts – “Stain”

The podcast starts with a fantastic song serving as my intro music/bed from Edmonton artist The Artisan Loyalist.

Aiden Knight is performing this Friday as part of Rifflandia at the Alix Goolden Hall.  I hope I don’t this story too wrong, but my understanding is that he will be playing with The O’Darling from the center of the Universe, Canada, Toronto.

I thought the O’Darling have a very pretty sound.

Steph Macpherson has been working on her new music from quite sometime.  I know this because I’ve been bugging her to send me music for what seems like an entirety.  It obviously is not an eternity, that would be a long time… but it was awhile.  Worth the wait?  You bet, she sent me four songs in total and a couple truly stood out.  I played one of my faves this week, “Best of Us.”  Take the time to have a listen and make you’re own judgment.  Reminds me a bit of Sarah Harmer.  If I had any critique, its the songs are too short!  I want more Steph… Gawd, I am a demanding  radio talker eh?  I get the songs for free and its not enough.

A gentleman named Peter Gardener turned me on to his new project Forestry.  He warned me the band is still in its infancy but I enjoyed the style.  Lo-fi indie pop done well.  I played “Owl” which I found to be the more interesting of the two cuts sent over.  Reminded me of another song but I can’t place it, so maybe that is its strength?… it reminds you of things you like.

The show ends with a chit chat with Gareth and Stephen from The Laundronauts.  We know and love the Laundronauts as that band that still presses their find music on vinyl.  For their new album they took it to level 17.  They traveled to Detroit Rock City to record in an analog studio with some famous mucky muck.  Then they went about pressing their full length ‘Come Clean’ on white vinyl!  Who does that anymore.  This week I played their feature song “Stain.”  They are working on a music video which is coming soon and I’ll be sure to post on my blog when its done.   There are more than a few songs I love off the record (and its just plain fun firing up the record player in the Capital Rock City studio) so you’ll be hearing more off their LP in the coming weeks.

the boys say its funny.  When they are at show they will have the CD master for $12 and the LP on vinyl right beside it for $15 and when someone comes up to buy the music and they see to the two products side-by-side, they almost always spring for the vinyl LP.  Better value.

That’s all I got for you today.  Thank you for downloading the show.  If you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoy making it, please share the link with a friend and help spread the word.

Talk at you next week.

Go with yourself.
