Notes To Self - Nobody (Recoil Remix) f. Evidence

Notes To Self - Nobody
I don’t know about you, but I need a quality song to finish today off in style. This true school gem is an ode to their craft from T.O.’s Notes To Self and features Evidence. It’s also excellent.

Mike O’Neil - This Is Who I Am


Do we all treasure the great Mike O’Neil? I think we should. Therefore, let’s all buy his new album Wild Lines when it comes out next year, ok? The first single, This Is Who I Am, is awesome and might well convince you to buy his album regardless of my blathering.

Unfortunately, it began raining [...]

Kathryn Calder - Who Are You?


Mondays, amirite folks? Well I found some Monday-antidote this AM: Who Are You? a lovely, sunny track from Kathryn Calder’s last album that I clearly missed when it dropped in the summer. Give this a few listens and you’ll be feeling better about today I’d say.

Canadian Winter f. Bonnie Hamilton - Ooh La La, Ah Oui Oui

Canadian Winter f. Bonnie Hamilton - Ooh La La, Ah Oui Oui
I can’t lie, if you sample Greg Nice, you’ve pretty much already won me over. So Hamilton outfit Canadian Winter didn’t have to work that hard to seal the deal with me once I heard the chorus on this Quebec-based road trip jam flips Greg’s francais from DWYCK. It’s a fun track, check it for yourself below.
