Merry Christmas intrepid music blog reader! I haven’t rapped at you in a bit….but hey, holidays. Probably won’t get back into the rhythm until 2017. But I am working today so I thought I could sneak a blog in. Maybe two. I used to be all about those year end lists…but I’d really be writing that for me, I don’t think too many people care.

Ryan Adams has a new record called Prisoner out in February of 2017. I heard a new share song today called “To Be Without You” and was enjoying the smooth acoustic vibes.

My wife and I watch that syrupy TV show This Is Us sometimes….and I can’t help but think about Mandy Moore when I hear a song like this. I don’t know if that’s fair or not, but here we are.



Hey Eddie Vedder, happy birthday!

Go with yourself.

One of my favourite Vancouver bands, Bear Mountain, have a new indie-electro song called “Hopeful.”

I am amped for this song for a couple reasons. Number 1, NEW BEAR MOUNTAIN. That’s a celebration. Number 2, it is Rifflandia and I will always cherish the Bear Mountain set I saw all those nights ago in packed all ages studio space at 2:30AM.

The band will be releasing their second record sometime next year on Last Gang Records.

“This band, our music, Kenji’s artwork, and everything we do is really about unifying that relationship between technology and nature, analogue and digital,” says frontman Ian Bevis. “For us, there is something really stimulating about producing music and for the most part our songs are producer-based tracks. Where things get interesting is on stage when we translate those techniques into the live setting,” adds Kyle Statham. “When we’re up there we’re always rocking things out like a band usually would but we’re also bringing in this visual language and an element of storytelling, which takes shape in real time and in front of the audience.”

“This is our new song ‘Hopeful’. We made it thinking about the future, and being hopeful for what’s to come despite the past. We hope you like it!!”

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js*** lord-huron Lord Huron has released another single off his record Strange Trails. The song has a folky, blue collar rock vibe to it. And if you make it out to see the Robert Redford movie A Walk In The Woods, you might here a few Lord Huron tracks on the soundtrack.




So Ryan Adams’ song-for-song reinterpretation of Taylor Swift’s 1989 is real. And we got out first listen today from Zane Lowe on Beats 1.

And you know what? I kinda really like it!


Tomorrow I’m looking forward to visits from Tokyo Police Club and Young Empires. I’ll try to get something posted up on here before I take off to Victoria for the weekend and Rifflandia!

Go with yourself.
