Unless I’m mistaken, yesterday was the first day of summer, and, you’re never going to believe this, I think I’ve got the perfect summer record for you. I know, I know, recommendations for summer jams are a dime a dozen from blogger types, but Business As Usual from Halifax’s Something Good is packed with enough [...]
My mini-vacation extended into yesterday, and so we’re freaking the Old School Tuesday funk, as we occasionally do. During my break I came across a fun/jarring bit of Twitrivia (Twitter Trivia, I’m trademarking that pronto): 3rd Bass’ sophomore album, Derelicts of Dialect, is now 20 years old. A quick check on the ol’ Googletron [...]
Having previously posted on a couple of James Hicken’s offerings under his wallscenery demos moniker, and hearing his latest release half asleep. half awake., I have to wonder why I haven’t seen his stuff around the ol’ interwebs more. I have to wonder if it’s due at all to the connotations that the “demo” in [...]
The sound from Owen Sound! I know nothing about First Rate People, or if they even still call OS home, but regardless, this is a fantastically summery sounding jam and they can count me as a new fan.

One of the fun parts of doing these Old School Monday posts is when we hear back from the artists themselves. I mean I’d doing them regardless, but having Donald D take us to task for saying he had a shouty MC style, or having Yo-Yo send us a Facebook message is just further proof [...]
Back-to-back Edmonton-related posts? Back-to-back Edmonton-related posts. Why? Well because when I think of fun Canadian cities, I think of Edmonton. Paul Coffey is my all-time favorite hockey player, Henry “Gizmo” Williams is my favorite all-time CFL player, and if you know my history, you know I’m an Edmonton rap-enthusiast of the highest order. Plus we [...]
It’s been a while since the alarmingly frail pysiques of Kid N’ Play graced the hill on a Saturday morning, and that means one thing: we’re long overdue for some remix action. Problem solved, as you can see, we’ve got a crisp new edition of What’s This, A Party?, our irregular ode to Canadian-related remixes, [...]
Sometimes stars align… and other times they simply tour together. While not household names, Matthew Barber and Oh Susanna have talent in spades. If playing fields were level, these two song writers would be viewed as Canadian music royalty. Thankfully, the two have joined forces for the “He Said, She Said” tour and The [...]
Here’s a catchily-raucous new song from Sports (the band!) that will appear on their upcoming new album. Good stuff.

For the next week, I’ll be taking my talents to South Beach… well, Orlando actually. Do you care? Of course not, but since it’s for a work conference the posts will be short and sweet. Fear not though loyal reader, while short and too the point, these posts are also full of free shit for [...]
