Arkells fourth record, Morning Report, is out on August 5th. I had a chance to preview the record and one track that jumped out at me was the unabashed love song late on the album called “And Then Some.”

Max Kerman says that is a very personal song that he wrote for his partner Lauren.

I won’t be the only one up there…turns out these pokemons are really popular again.

Last night I was DJing at Match (I’m back there tonight and tomorrow)…and was jamming a remix/cover of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car.” Reminded me how much I LOVE the original.

Friend of the blog Ciele also loves the song and sent over her 2010 cover.

and the original. Amazing.

Busy weekend…. DJing, maybe some Spani Pool concession action, Taco Fest, then Sunday up at Pemberton.

OK, one more post tonight. New Arkells’ record High Noon…. you have it right? Essential summer time Canadian rock & roll.

“I knew from the beginning / it was you from the beginning.”

And this one… whoa.

“beating the drum all night. Dancing naked ’round the fire. Leaving trouble behind. Swimming in the water. We found the tent with a flashlight. We were looking for a hideout. When you’re praying for no-string. Some times you get tied down.”

Is this song not about EVERY time you partied up at the cabin with a group of friends?
