Song Of The Day – “September Fields” by Frazey Ford


Being as how we are in the Kootenays, it seems appropriate to post a tune by Castlegar’s own Frazey Ford.  It doesn’t hurt either that it is a terrific tune.

Song Of The Day – “Watch Out For The Fuzz” – Howie Beck


Just a tune, on vacation in the Kootenays, but it is flipping raining.  Can’t do much sailing in the rain.  Howie Beck with some great Adult “Alternative” for you, whatever Adult Alternative is.  Just good music from what I can tell.

Song Of The Day – “The Beat Goes On” – Emilie-Claire Barlow


Some Canadian jazz from about 5 years.  Good take on a classic.

Nothing to say.

As I sit here prepping this post, I noticed something odd, or not odd perhaps.  My top 5 consists of a Brit and 4 Canadians.  Not much bias on this blog.  My Top 5, in no particular order.

5 “Recovery” by Frank Turner

4 “So Blind” by David Myles

3 “I Was a Fool” by Tegan and Sara

2 “Red Hands” by Walk Off the Earth

My Top 10 for 2013 – 6 to 10


Vampire Weekend

Today we post the first 5 of my Top 10 for 2013.  The Canadian content in this group consists of a great song by Donovan Woods.  The Wire is likely the poppiest tune I have posted (or will post) but it is very catchy and becoming a huge hit.  Having said that, some “purists” will contest John Mayer being on any list.  I am a huge fan of his and greatly appreciate his abilities as both a songwriter and as an excellent guitarist.  Both are highlighted in Wildfire.  Enjoy!

10 “The Wire” by Haim

9 “Rumble and Sway” by Jamie N Common

8 “Wildfire” by John Mayer

7 “Put On, Cologne” by Donovan Woods

6 “Unbelievers” by Vampire Weekend

My Top 10 for 2013 – The Seven That Didn’t Make It


Serena Ryder

It is that time of year once again, the dreaded top 10 lists.  To milk this as much as possible, I am dropping 3 posts on you.  Number 17 to 11, then 10-6 and finally my top 5.  How do 17 songs end up on a top 10 list you ask?  Simple my blog and I can do what I want.  Seriously though, I have trouble picking my favourites and couldn’t whittle it down anymore than this.  I did leave some great music on the side unfortunately.  So without further adieu, I give number 11 to 17, completely without any further yapping from me, just the music.

 

17 “Stars” by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals

 

 

16 “Cry Love” by Belle Starr

 

 

15 “Can You Get to That” by Mavis Staples

 

 

14 “When You Know” by Matt Epp & Serena Ryder

Great tune from a Canadian staple, The Sam Roberts Band.  The song “Detroit ’67” is a 2008 release off their album “Love At the End of the World“.  Great band with a great rock sound.
