Thank you for finding my blog.  If this is your first time visiting I would like to invite you to check out my weekly podcast called Capital Rock City.  Capital Rock City is a weekly audio podcast I create that features some of the fine music of Victoria and points in and around the capital.

Please Download: Capital Rock City #63

If you enjoy the show, please consider sharing the link with a friend and subscribing to the podcast.  You can subscribe by using this RSS feed or by searching ‘capital rock city’ in the iTunes store.

Now lets get to it.

DJ Notes

01) Mother Mother – “Hay Loft”
02) Paper Cranes – “Black Centipedes”
03) Great White Shark – “Long to Tell You”
04) Everybody Left – “Get Used”

The show begins with a taste of an interview I did with Mother Mother lead sing Ryan Guldemon.  We’ll get a couple chances to see this Quadra Island native (now living in Vancouver) on August 15th at Cumberland’s Big Time Out Festival and then here in the city in late September at Rifflandia.  Ryan and I mostly talk about how I completely fail at interpreting their music.  good times.

The Paper Cranes have a new record called ‘Chivalry’s Dead’ and they be celebrating its release with a pair of CD release parties.  July 17th here in Victoria at Lucky Bar (Racoons in support) and then the following night, July 18th in Vancouver at The Biltmore.

I got an email from my man crush Eric Thompson at A TV.  Eric has a son and he is the drummer in the band Great White Shark.  AND it turns out I know the lead singer.  He was in the band Something Better which I have featured before on Capital Rock City (I thinkon the podcast I make a mistake and confused my notes.  I said that Great White Shark was Everybody Left… and that is wrong, they were Something Better).

Finally, a song from the band Everybody Left.  What a groovy track.

That’ll do it for this week’s Capital Rock City.  Thank you for spending your time exploring new indie rock with me and I hope you’ll not be a stranger and introduce yourself in the comment section and make a point to subscribe to the podcast.

Go with yourself.

Wow, a couple days late with the DJ notes.  bad radio DJ, bad!

Please tuck into: Capital Rock City #61

I continue my march to 1,000 weekly downloads on Capital Rock City.  Webmeister Bud is still on mat leave celebrating the birth of his daughter!  Huzzah Bud!  So I don’t know the stats, the last I checked it was in the neighbourhood of a 100 a week.  Not bad, but as you can see, lots of work ahead of me to get the podcast to a sustainable audience.  You can do your part in supporting the fine music of Victoria by sharing the link of the podcast with a friend(s) or posting on your social network (Facebook, Twitter, Myspace).

You can also subscribe to the podcast, two ways, RSS Feed or in the iTunes Store podcast section.  Just search for ‘Capital Rock City’ and don’t forget to rate and comment please.

You’ll also find Capital Rock City at Raised on Indie!

Sales pitch aside, let’s get to it.

DJ Notes

01) Jell – “Watch Yourself”
02) Listening Party – “Pachina”
03) Goodbye Beatdown – “The Grudge”
04) The Matinee – “The Road”

Jell sent me a link for their new music video.  Pretty decent.  Have a look.

I was surprised to see that Jell has actually made a few videos for their songs.  All a very good DIY quality.  Jell’s Youtube Page

Here is yet another from Jon Middleton’s Listening Party.  This song is a little more lo-fi than the last LP song I featured.  Not sure what I think about it.  i like the quirkyness of it.

The Listening Party will be in Duncan on June 27th and in Vancouver opening for one of my favourite bands, Japandroids, at Richards on August 7th.

The Goodbye Beatdown are playing Zoner Gina’s party on July 4th.  You’re totally invited (no seriously, email me if you want to go…).

The show ends with The Matinee.  A band I have known since highschool.  they’ve changed their name like a hundred times (well three) and this latest incarnation has a slight country/folky twang.  Matt sent me a slate of new tunes and I felt that “the Road” was by far the strongest.

Thank you for finding Capital Rock City, let’s do it again sometime shall we?

Go with yourself.
