Midweek Mixdown: Treat Your Ears

Old Blood - "Bones"  https://youtu.be/TZdTe1vA0CE On the weekend, I hit the Pavillion to catch the EP Release/Farewell show for Rosewood Annie.  I didn't know much about the other bands on the bill, but when Old Blood hit the stage, I was on board with their alt-rock sound.  In revisiting some of the band's earlier work,…Read More

Midweek Mixdown // Aural Sunshine Awaits

This week's Midweek Mixdown is a blast of upbeat musical sunshine, as we are still looking for the warm weather, so hopefully these tunes will tide you over until the warmth arrives. Harry Styles - "Sign of the Times" https://youtu.be/L8JWeesN5So Let's be honest for a moment here, I never thought that I would be including…Read More

Midweek Mixdown: Where did Q1 go?

It's hard to believe that we're already well into April, I have no idea where the past 3 months have gone.  Work has been busy, and we've been out at a handful of shows so that we can report back to our loyal fanbase. I always find that March is that month where I tend…Read More

On the bright side, the band still has an array of catchy folk-infused pop tunes, and "We Don't Know" is another fantastic track…Read More

Midweek Mixdown // Some Fresh Tunes – 08:06:2016

1. "Paper Girl" -  July Talk https://youtu.be/iOEUPba1-1g Oh, how I wish I was aware of July Talk's unbridled awesomeness when this show took place at the Carleton. I've been lucky enough to have caught a handful of sets from the band, and I wish I had been at the Carleton for this. Looking forward to…Read More

Midweek Mixdown // The Sun is Coming edition

While it's not as dire as last spring, we've been pretty fortunate to have had a fairly mild winter (even if it is still taking swipes at us in mid-April), so in honour of the return to the warmer Canadian months, I've assembled a few tunes that will definitely heat things up and get you…Read More
