Saskatchewanese indie rockers Library Voices have a new record on November 6th called Lovish,

The group channeled some classic rock vibes for the first single “Oh Donna.”

“Oh Donna is our stab at bastardizing classic rock. Brennan reached out with the skeleton of the song and said he wanted it to be thematically reminiscent of Lola, I’m A Boy, or Madame George. He suggested the name Donna and I spent the next few days lost inside my thoughts.”

And this is a bizarre story. “(…) singer/guitarist Carl Johnson was jumped, beaten, and left unconscious in the street in a random act of violence. The attack resulted in blood pooling on the front of his brain, a severe concussion, an inability to smell bad odors, and a long road to recovery. For a few months it remained uncertain whether he would be able to continue writing and performing music.”

Oh wow.



One dude is from Chicago, and the other is from Melbourne and now they live in Brooklyn and perform as Surf Rock Is Dead.

Chill. Hazy. A little of that 80-classic alternative/shoegaze thing going on. NOISEY likens their sound to ” DIIV, Beach Fossils, and The Drums.”

This came on my soundcloud after SRID and sounded cool. Plus I love the band name, Diane Coffee.



CRUISR is touring with my fave band from San Francisco, Waters. No Vancouver show? C’mon man, Pacific North-West is the best North-West. Get after it boys.

Hilly Dilly talking “Throw Shade:” ‘don’t be surprised at all if you find this track stuck in your head only after one listen.

Hilly Dilly also posted up a new Sylvan Esso song. Neat.


I’ll end the party today with some LA House music. AC Slater‘s new one is called “U Got 2.”

Cool man. House music, who’d have thuink it. My AC Slater, AC/DC mash-up tribute DJ band is going to be called AC/DC Slater. Right?

Go with yourself.

Allergies are in full effect over here in my corner of North America. But the trees look outstanding…so I’ll eat my spicy noodle box and just clear out all that mucus the old fashioned way.

I was sent a song from Brooklyn band Surf Rock is Dead. They do kind of a post-rock filtered through a hazy surf-rock guitar tone?



Let’s have a listen to the latest from Death Cab For Cutie. New record is out on March 31st and will be called Kintsugi.

Go with yourself.
