That’s all I got for now… I’ll flesh out the notes later with some commentary and links when I have more time.  Right now I have to hop on the radio and do my show.

Jets Overhead are likely somewhere in China right now spreading the Canadian Rock and Rock ethos to a billion people.  New Jets record is called No Nations and we’ll get our chance at it on June 2nd.

Way to Go Einstein messaged me on Facebook after noticing Fake Shark – Real Zombie on CRC 54.  This band is also from the lower mainland but I was like, yup…send me some music!  They have a bit of a Radiohead thing going on.  I find the song to be very melodic and pleasant to listen to.

Trolling around Pitchfork, I read a review of Victoria’s Immaculate Machine that was not great.  Pitchfork was rather “meh” on the whole High on Jackson Hill which would be fighting words of Shaynebo Bright reads the review (he LOVES Immaculate Machine).

The Read: Pitchfork’s Review of Japandroids

Pitchfork might not like their accessible Victorian pop, but they lurves them some Terminal City fuzzy lo-fi rock.  Japandroids have an interesting sound that maybe reminds me of Vic due Bloody Wilma?  Maybe a little?  I should get some Bloody Wilma for the podcast.  They also remind me a bit of that band Fucked Up.  Right, the song I picked for CRC 55 was the one the reviewer in Pitchfork highlighted as the best… so if you didn’t “get it” then maybe Japandroids are not for you… and in the 6 degrees of the Paper Cranes which CRC has turned into… Japandroids are on the same record label as The Paper Cranes.  neat.

I met one of the guys in Flawed By Design a couple Tuesdays ago at The Clubhouse.  He was friends with this guy I know named Brenden.  We jibber jabbered… one thing leads to another and it turns out as is generally the case… he’s in a band, I have a radio show, we should be friends.  An MP3 was sent and I really like it.  Maybe a *little* dated with the screamo style, but i miss screamo so I’ll let it slide and give the song a thumb up!

Ended the show this week with another strong cut from Hollydene.  Still don’t know too much abouyt the kids in t he Hollydene, we recently became BFF on Facebook, so maybe over time… I’ll learn their 5 favourite records on a desert island and their ABCs off Facebook notes and it’ll be like we went to high school together and used to party every week down by the river (no really, in high school, I used to party down by the river).

The march to 1,000 continues so please take a moment to help me and share a link for the podcast with a friend.  Subscribing on iTunes or by RSS feed is huge too.  Thank you so much for finding the show.  And I am always looking for new music so if you’re in a band or have a favourite indie rocker you want to share, please email me at jeremy@thezone.fm .

OK, good talk.

Go with yourself.
