vince vaccaro

Victoria’s Vince Vaccaro posted this nice cover of Chris Isaak’s 1989 cut “Wicked Game.” He writes on his instagram, “I’ve always loved this song, and today I decided to sing the shit out of it.”

Let’s have a listen…and is Vince’s way, free download if you dig it.

Koni
Sebastian Dittrich is a German producer under the brand Koni. He took a cover of Coldplay’s “Adventure of a Lifetime” by a singer named Gabriella, and turned it into a bouncy cloud house song (like the sound Gryffin says music blog Yaqui.co). Sounds pretty great.

I’ll have to take advantage of this cover for a DJ set.

Oh sweet…then I hit Gryffin’s feed and he has a song featuring Josef Salvat! Love it. Happy Friday.

Here’s your nature moment of Zen…I went for a hike to Jug Island Beach on Monday in Belcarra…and along the trail I found this rock with water bouncing down it.

Go with yourself.

most-non-heinous-the-good-the-bad-the-ugly-single

Toronto band Most Non Heinous have a new movie themed song in “The Good The Bad, and The Ugly.”

More of the aggressive, industrial rock that fans of the band will be familiar with.

“No one wins in a Mexican standoff.”

New record will be called The Fifth Element and comes out in August. Another song off the disc is called “The Lost Boys.”

And let’s go back in time and hear their most excellent cover of Tool’s “Stinkfist.” Threads a little female vocal into the mix. Nice touch.

Go with yourself.

roper yeah
I must apologise for the border around my Instagram of Jesse Roper…I read on the internet yesterday that that is not cool any more. Hey internet, I didn’t know! There really ought to be a guide on how to conduct yourself on the information superhighway.

Jesse Roper stopped by the show yesterday to talk some V.I.C. Fest, his new Indie GoGo campaign and to play us a couple songs. His Stevie Ray Vaughan cover is a good time.

jon
Thursday, Jon Williams and I got spoiled at the Radio Factory.  We had our Zone Band of the Month Geoff Lundstrom in to perform his single “Wash The Dirt Off.”  But then the dude stuck around and recorded a cover of Lorde‘s Much Mega Hit, “Royals.”  His trio consisted of himself with Amy and Chris on keys.  Amy let Jon hold her 1948 Martin D 28 acoustic guitar!

Earlier, we had Victoria’s Zerbin in studio.  The boys dropped a beautiful take on The National‘s  “I Need My Girl.”

Maybe you’ll be able to get behind one of these covers and you’ll share it with your friends.

Go with yourself.

The Morning After Show in on Facebook?  Believe the hype and throw me a “like.”

I can’t believe I’ve been sitting on this great cover of Awolnation’s “Sail” for so long.

Back in 2011… my man Josh at Veneto turned me on to Geoff Lundstrom.  He was doing a groovy thing down at Canoe on Thursdays (does he still?).  Lots of covers…and one standout is his take on “Sail.”

Fast-forward to today and I am organizing the cover songs we have on our playlist at the radio factory.  I get thinking some local bands with covers… Maurice’s “Robin,” Jon & Roy tackling Ledbelly, Acres of Lion’s jamming “Never Surrender”…. and “Sail.”

Go with yourself.
