Nirvana

For the past couple weeks I’ve been reintroducing this old remix I have of Nirvana’s “Polly.” The remix is done by Bruno Be, and it seems like overtime I put it up someone asks, “what is that?”  So let me repost it up on the old MAS blog.

Happy 2018 to you! Thank you for being part of this music loving blog community.

Merry Christmas!

Islands
I was thinking I want a boat (while on a boat) this morning. Nothing fancy…something to putt around and see the islands and fjords of British Columbia on my own time.

Here is a cover of Nirvana done by Father John Misty. Not bad. Chill. Sparse.

That reminds me, I really do need to track down his latest record…for Coral. For Coral.

crazy turntable
Lemon is  a performer from Toronto. She has a music Tumblr (yay music bloggers!).

She posted a synthy dark spin on the Nirvana classic that this Gen-Xer…(or maybe I’m an old Millennial?) can get behind.

Trolling her Soundcloud page, I also really enjoyed this cover of Peter Bjorn and John’s “Young Folks” she did with Wolf Saga.

Cool. Go with yourself.

I meant to blog this remix last week.  So good, but I am conflicted on the jam.

I love Nirvana and I love remixes.  When I laid it down at Lucky Bar last week, people got grooving.  BUT the song is about sexual violence.  Just seems weird to play this dance song in a club where everyone is drunk and hooking up.  Clearly I am an old man that thinks too much about this stuff as the remix is a monster jam and the dance floor went off when the song came on.

From the Ministry of Remixes of the songs from my youth.  Check out this remix outta Portland by Stefan is Stefan.

Hazy Californian Foster the People-esque indie pop AND more palm trees.  The band is called The Neighbourhood…they use the Canadian spelling of Neighbourhood, wise.  I am new to the young band that has already cycled through the blogs and that’s cool because you can’t follow every trend.  The band is starting to hit a critical mass…as in a record label in Canada is repping them to the radio stations, they’re touring with Paul Banks of Interpol fame (after wrapping a tour with the Temper Trap, hmmm someone likes these guys)….  I punched up their song “Sweater Weather” and it sounds groovy.

A wintery chill day on the beach in California.  Very pretty lyrics pitter-pattering quickly, painting a romantic story over beats and jangly indie rock guitar.

How about this track…. Victoria’s Jon & Roy at a house concert a couple years ago.  Last song of the set is a cover of Lead Belly’s “Where Did You Sleep Last Night” (made famous for our generation by Nirvana). Lead Belly’s legend and lore is worth your time and its on wikipedia. And now Jon & Roy’s take on a classic.

The annual Jon & Roy holiday special goes down in Victoria on December 14th at the Alix Goolden Hall.  In Vancouver on the 21st at The Vogue and the 22nd in Kelowna at Habit.

American friends… look out! Jon & Roy head south for a West Coast tour in the new year.

Fun poppy rock from Australia.  I love living in the rainy Forest Kingdom on my Island drifting in the Pacific Ocean….but I also love Palm Trees (yes there are a couple in Victoria but it ain’t the same).  Melbourne’s Them Swoops sent an email with the above album graphic and I had to hit play.  The song definitely bounces along with summer fun.  We’re rolling into winter in Canada, but they’re getting ready for long days and BBQ nights in Australia.  This song “Work Around It” reminds me of that.

Yesterday I featured Toronto’s The Wooden Sky.  I have been enjoying their sounds and was sent another interesting song.  Their take on Nirvana’s classic “All Apologies.”

The Wooden Sky – All Apologies (Nirvana Cover)

I like Nirvana and I like The Wooden Sky, so it is very easy for me to get behind this song.  My only critique is that maybe the song doesn’t build or add too much to the great original.  Its a cover song.  A good cover song…but I’ll punch up Nirvana if I need some In Utero.

Lastly… I have a semi for the Japandroids.  They’ll be in Vancouver on Saturday, December 22nd and for some insane reason the show is not sold out yet.  bad for the city of Vancouver, great for me as I think I can arrange my life and finances to be there.  Here is a poster to a recent show in Dallas.  I love it and just want to share it on my blog.


And that’s a blog… go with yourself.
