Damn, I am always cold lately.  My bones are cold.  weird…

Download: Capital Rock City #51

and remember kids, whenever you subscribe to the Capital Rock City podcast from the  iTunes store or RSS the program, Ryan Kesler scores another goal.

DJ Notes:

01) Johnny Galactic – “Pink Coat”
02) Vince Vaccaro – “Costa Rica”
03) Something Better – “She Said”
04) Hey Rosetta! – “Red Heart (live)”
05) Bosma – “My Self Removed”
06) Archon Legion – “Saviors of the Faith”

My friend Chucky sent me the music video last week for local rockers Johnny Galactic.  Catchy track, video is wonderfully DIY and who’s that on the bass gee-tar?  oh Aran from the Armchair Cynics.  neat.

Vince, god bless him… straight off some glorious reviews for his Juno Showcase in Vancouver last week… finds four seconds to read my drivel on this here blog and read that I wished I’d played “Costa Rica” on best of 2009 (so far) episode… so he emails me the track!  Thanks Vince!  My sister Andrea is not so much the indie rocker type, but she loves the track.

A couple episodes ago, I talked to a record engineer named Wynn Gogol about his studio One Ton.  One of his recent project was working with the band Something Better.  This week, the fruits of the labour.

Hey Rosetta! was out west last week for a Zone Show at Sugar Nightclub.  before the rock show, the boys stopped by my show and laid down this delectable gem, “Red Heart.”

Bosma writes in to the show; ” hey jeremy, here’s a tune for your podcast.  its a from a solo project of mine which can be found at myspace.com/bosmatunes.  its called “my self removed”.  kind of a garage-y sound but this is what i do when i’m not jammin with the 7 Year Old Poets. cheers mate.”

Reading my Monday Mag last week (the one about the Renovictions… featuring my old landlord! awesome.) and I came across a review for local metallers, Archon Legion.  I have been neglecting metal on ye ole podcast so I sent an email to the boys looking for  some songs to feature.  I am not as metal as Brodie for The Metal Observer, he has  a better review where he says:  “Overall, ARCHON LEGION sound like an incredibly inspired, and energetic band, but a young one at that. This means that “March Of The Inquisitors” is a very exciting album, if a few of the songs don’t hold up as well as others. The album is definitely worth it on the base of the stand out tracks though, and I personally can’t wait to see what else these guys have to offer on future albums.

Next week will either be:

Some more metal plus this band from Vancouver that Sara P found and likes or,

I *might* try and track down some old Morning After Show tapes and fave songs and create some sort of Morning After Show ten year somethingorother.  We’ll see how my work load shapes up next week.

That’s all I got, please download my show and share the link with a friend.

Go with yourself.

Come get some, Capital Rock City in late, but always on time.

Please Listen: Capital Rock City 49

and remember kids, SUBSCRIBING to the podcast on iTunes is the only way to fight a wild fire in Australia!  The cute little koala bears thank you for it.  Or heck, why not RSS Feed this bitch direct from The Zone!

DJ Notes:

01) Skies Kill – “Exhaust Fumes”
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.
