Talent Tuesday – Canadian Releases – January 31, 2012
Happy Tuesday all. What’s that, it’s not Tuesday. What day is it then. Wednesday, no, can’t be Wednesday. I haven’t posted Talent Tuesday yet, so it has to be Tuesday. Well, let’s pretend it’s Tuesday so I don’t have to screw up the title. My blog, my rules. It is Tuesday right here, right now, and will be as long as you are on this post. and we’re off.
The big release of the week, maybe the year is Leonard Cohen. He released “Old Ideas” this week. Not much to say about him, except, it doesn’t get any better than this.
Darkness – Leonard Cohen
Next up is an excellent new band (new to me) called Young Empires. They released an EP this week titled “Wake All My Youth”. Hailing from Toronto, they formed in 2009 as a 3 piece unit. The song I have posted is a live version of a single released from this set. This is a band that could become a household name in a hurry.
White Doves – Young Empires
My last entry this is week is from Joel Plaskett. This is an interesting concept. Joel is releasing 1 single a week over the next 10 weeks, which will culminate in the release of his new album “Emergency”. I don’t think I have ever seen this done before. The video is not from the album, but is from a previous record, “Make a Little Noise”. If this is the first time you have heard anything by Joel, you are in for a treat. Check him out on YouTube, the songs are great.
Nowhere With You – Joel Plaskett
Told you it was good, see you next week, hopefully on Tuesday.
