02) Skies Kill – “Remote Visibility”
03) Crown The Wolf – “Primer Ride”
04) The Faunts – “Feel. Love. Thinking of.”
05) Something Better – “Long to Tell You”
06) Steve Marriner – “Zulu Ripper”

Skies Kill are one of my new favourites.  Danny Peters from the group emailed me three songs earlier this week and I gave them all a solid listen.  The band is still developing their sound and maybe there are parts I’d tighten up, but the basic genesis of the music is wonderful to my ears.  The lead off track that I played on CRC, “Exhaust Fumes” is one of my stand-out picks because a lot happens in less than 3 minutes.  It is almost two songs with a long soundtracky end.

Crown The Wolf bring the Fu Manchu fuzz rock to Victoria and maybe you’ll come see them at Evolution Nightclub next Thursday, March 26th!

Adam at Sonic in Deadmonton has to yet to fail in exporting something mighty from the Champion Rock City… the hockey team might suck, but the music is wonderous.

Now Adam might not own a scarf, but I do, so I care what Pitchfork has to say about The Faunts. Actually, I don’t believe Adam doesn’t own a scarf, hypothermia is a clear and present danger in Edmonton any time of the year… maybe I should send him one?

Next I talk to Wynn Gogol.  Wynn operates 1 Ton Studios in the Quadra Village.  He recorded Something Betters music!  Nice.

One of Wynn’s favourite projects was/is working with Ottawa’s Steve Marriner, so I ended the podcast with Steve’s “Zulu Ripper” which … um… rips.

That’s all I got.  Best of 2009… so far, is coming to you next week.  If you have any ideas or request then please don’t be shy, email me or comment.

Go with yourself.
