30 Dec 2009, 05:37 by MichaelLeSuerI've decided to just stick to a list of top songs this year, rather than attempt a best albums list, as there are easily more albums I wish I could have listened to than the ones I've heard. Each artist will only appear once, with the exception of Justin Vernon, who managed to sneak in there a good five times. I didn't spend too much time on this, so don't get cranky with me.
100. "1999" by Suburban Kids with Biblical Names
99. "Genesis 3:23" by The Mountain Goats
98. "Last Dance" by The Raveonettes
97. "Neat Parts" by Fucked Up
96. "Settle On Your Skin" by Swan Lake
95. "She's Dead To Me" by The Von Bondies
94. "Am I Normal?" by Art Brut
93. "La Llorna" by Beirut
92. "All This Will Pass" by Youth Group
91. "You Can Have What You Want" by Papercuts
90. "Mermaid Struggle" by Beep Beep
89. "Don't Lie" by Abe Vigoda
88. "Houses" by Great Northern

It’s been two years since the Friends in Bellwoods compilation showcased some of Canada’s fastest-rising indie rock acts, featuring rare, new and unreleased tracks from groups like Ohbijou, the D'Urbervilles, the Acorn and Kids on TV. Flash-forward to 2009, and record label Out of This Spark is getting ready to unleash the sequel Friends in Bellwoods II to the world next week.

22 Jul 2009, 05:27 by quixentricIt's that time again. Time for me to find the perfect conglomeration of songs to help me define a season. Here's what I've been jamming to this summer:
Simian Mobile Disco - Audacity of Huge
I got those Roomba robots that clean the floor
I got that mother of pearl oyster fork for sure
This is pretty much the song I define as my SUMMER JAM. I heard last month via Patrick Wolf, whose sister did the art direction for the fantastic music video below. I absolutely love this song and it has been part of my morning workouts every day.
Daft Punk - Robot Rock
Amazon had Human After All on sale this month, so I finally decided to delve into listening to Daft Punk music that wasn't just Harder Better Faster Stronger. This CD is pretty fantastic, and I'm looking forward to picking up some more of their albums in the future. (I know, way to TOTALLY GET ON THE BOAT 10 YEARS OR SO TOO LATE, but hey.)
The Dead Weather - Treat Me Like Your Mother
Come on look me in the eye
You wanna try to tell a lie
I’ll bet you can’t and you know why?
I’m just like your mother
I have kind of an in-the-closet love for Jack White, I think he helps create some absolutely fabulous modern blues rock. His newest side project The Dead Weather is no exception, and Alison Mosshart's voice is absolutely divine on this track. Everything about this is in your face (although a tad bit repetitive) and as soundtracked quite a few of my coding sessions.

13 Jun 2009, 22:24 by enoch2702Thu 11 Jun – Metric
First off, the openers: Smile Smile, and Sebastien Grainger and his band. Smile Smile has a nice indie pop/folk vibe about them. Some catchy pop-folk songs in their set, and they were done.
Next up was Sebastien Grainger and his band. I wish I could've seen him in his Death from Above 1979 days, but this is as close as I was going to get to seeing him perform live. The guy knows how to rock. Kudos to Grainger for hoping down off the stage to co-mingle with the people up at the front. The bass player looked like he could've been cast in Dazed And Confused.
Finally, Metric. Most of the songs were from the latest album, with a selection of Live It Out coming in second, and a few older songs near the end of the set. Emily did all the things that make a concert great: encouraging the audience to sing along, asking the audience to get out he lighters, moving around on the stage and not tied to the keyboard, and having some cool light effects.

'Sebastien Grainger & The Mountains' is het spijtige vervolgverhaal op de break-up van het rauwe, meesterlijke Death from Above 1979. De band bestond uit slechts twee leden (Jesse Keeler en Sebastien Grainger), ze zetten het skate-podium op Pukkelpop in vuur en vlam maar gaven er na onoverkomelijke (muzikale) meningsverschillen, in 2005 de brui aan. Jesse zocht het geluk in de technotempels met MSTRKRFT. Sebastien trok zich terug en leidde een normaal 'huisje, tuintje, boompje'-leven tot de muziekkriebels weer opstaken. Hij heeft de compromisloze herrie achter zich gelaten en bewandelt nu een conventioneler rockpad in de vermomming van een singer-songwriter.
