The rain has returned to Vancouver today. Wow. I love the rain and I love wandering around the city in the rain so I am feeling this grey Monday.

Bright song, for a wet day. Borns.

Not a new NEW song, but they’re trying to sell it to Canadian radio. I doubt you’ll hear this on a radio station like CFOX but maybe on a modern rock station.

Personally I love Borns. “You make my heart beat like the rain.”


Burger Records style garage rock from Together Pangea. I don’t know what it is with this lazy hazy rock and roll lately, but I loves it.

One more because it is so groovy. The Smoking Trees.

Happy Monday. Go with yourself.

Here is a picture of our youngest. Coral was telling me that he loves sitting by the window to eat his snack! I love this picture.

My family moves over to Vancouver at the end of the month and I can’t wait. My work is shifted a little later in the day so I’ll get to be a stay-at-home Dad for the first half of the day. My wife is taking a few months off before trying to hustle a job so we’re pretty excited for the summer.

The hardest part of this move is missing out on the little things everyday. My weekends in Victoria fly by and as anyone with kids will tell you, “they grow up so fast!” I remember with Madelyn I’d roll my eyes when the veteran parents would say that. But you know what, it is true. If you’re having a kid, or one day you might…that is a true piece of lore from the parents before you. Anyway, trying to live my life and each day like your instagram feed, but at the same time, kinda wishing days to go by so we hit the end of the month and get this summer fired up all together.

OK music… bah bah bah dear diary…

One of our favourite British 90s grungy throwbacks here at CFOX, Wolf Alice, have a new record on June 22nd called My Love is Cool (Dirty Hit Records). We know and love Wolf Alice from their radio song “Moaning Lisa Smile,” (and their amazing set at The Biltmore back in…March?) now we have another listen from the album, “You’re a Germ.” When I was a snot-nosed skid growing up in Coquitlam, people called me Germy. Neat.


Back on the Borns train. “Seeing Stars” is getting some active play on my new playlist. He’s got the line thing through the “O” on his name, I don’t know how to make that with my Canadian keyboard.


and doesn’t this Crystal Fighters song sound like a jingle for a TV commercial? Catchy as fuck. I know, I’m blogging a 2-year-old song, but whatever…feeling it with this sunny hot weather in Vancouver.

Go with yourself.

Site of Sound continues to show off a few beauties. Been jiving on that music blog today.

Aquilo is my new favourite slow jam artist.

The British duo is from the north-west region of the UK. A little village north of Lancashire. The pair have been tapped as a rising artist this summer showing up where they need to; Guardian, BBC, Glastonbury.  Their ep “Human” came out on December 8th. They also have a music video for “I Gave it All.” That song is straight up perfect.

The music video is split into two parts and I have a feeling part 2 will be exceptionally heartbreaking. Oh man…I’ll need a helmet to watch it.


So we already know and love Aquilo…but the new discovery from Site of Sound was this cut from a group called Girl Friend. They rip a page out of music marketing 2014; hip graphics, a link to their manager, band photo and NO BIO INFO.

Much mysterio!


This one is pretty cool… from Chubby Beavers…. FMLYBND‘s cover of the Pixies’ classic “Where Is My Mind.”


Turntable Kitchen’s Fall Mixtape features this gem.

BORNS is from LA.  The song is called “10,000 Emerald Pools.” I dig it.

BORNS ep was released in November and is called Candy. According to the internet, he wrote the ep while living in a treehouse? Neat.

I think Radiohead should update their 90’s tune to, “everyone can program a drum machine.”

Go with yourself.
