VancityRockGirl just got back from Turks & Caicos and her next adventure is to ITALY! (the food looks pretty awesome).  Huckdoll did the Disneyland thing….which is on Coral and my list of things to get done.  But after reading Huck’s blog, we might wait till Madelyn is a bit older.  Which means… I am pretty close to talking Coral into Hawaii.  She said Hawaii or Mexico might be fine if we can rally some cash.

She hasn’t been to either… I haven’t been to Mexico since 2006 and Hawaii since 1998! The problem we’ll run into is saving money.  We are bad at it.

But I want to go to a coffee plantation and do a beach holiday so bad (or both).

Ah, we’ll see.  Money, debt, time, work.  Blah.  MUSIC! Huzzah!

Today I bring you a couple from Coral’s currents list.


Coral heard this track somewhere (maybe Sirius XMU… which has terrible presentation, but some decent tunes).  The group is called How To Dress Well.  Coral thought this song “&It Was U” might be pretty groovy during the lounge sets at Veneto.

Another jam getting some spins at home that Coral is digging is a song I first heard during Tea Time on The Zone (3PM Monday to Friday with #TeamJollyJon) is Django Django.  This British group slow burns and swirls with some weirdo-pop.

Django Django – “Default”

And I Like remixes

I like making mixtapes… I guess its almost the same rush as someone who plays fantasy baseball or something.  I go through my collection and build a setlist.

With some help from Pitchfork, iTunes Genius and my friend James… I found a set of fuzzy electronic off-kilter beats split up by some adorable indie pop.

The set begins with an ominous song from How To Dress Well. A song that is also side 1, track 1 from their album. It rises with some mellow and enjoyable beats, then bogs down with crackling distortion of Hudson Mohawke. Maybe the most most interesting of the songs I included, if only for its spooky weirdness.

A Sunny Day In Glasgow has some of that ethereal-ness of Hudson. Then I jammed out new music from Alexander, aka Alex Ebert aka the dude from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

Something delightful from Kelowna band We Are The City and its a wrap.

Thank you for listening to my set.
