New Music Review: Little Green Cars - Absolute... →
I often gush about songs. Often I gush about bands. Not nearly as often do I gush about entire albums. There are 3 reasons for this: As a full-time student, I don’t have the sufficient funds to pur… In case you missed it earlier, here’s my most recent blog post (via Wordpress)

Lyrics to Quite Possibly the Worst Song Ever...
To the man that waited on me at the Starbucks down on Main, I hope you understand When I put on that t-shirt, the only thing I meant to say is I’m a Skynyrd fan The red flag on my chest somehow is like the elephant in the corner of the south And I just walked him right in the room Just a proud rebel son with an ‘ol can of worms Lookin’ like I got a lot to learn but from my point...

slaggingoff: This Vice thing really gave me a big head yesterday (HUGE, you have to scroll for eight minutes to get to the text). This morning, Dan Mangan wrote me an open letter (read it here - you are welcome for the mad hits Dan).

Heavy Heart for Matt Mays and Friends →
I’m going to my first concert of 2013 (whaaaat?!) tonight to see Matt Mays and the rest of his band rock the Commodore. But they’ll be missing a key piece of their band, as they found their guitar player Jay Smith deceased in his Edmonton hotel room yesterday morning. Most bands would call off the rest of their tour and mourn their loss, but Matt and the boys are soldiering on and...
Slagging Off [kind of] slags Beekeeper. →
beekeeperband: GUYS - we escaped relatively unscathed from this Toronto-guy who was anonymously trashing almost everyone playing at CMW. To be fair, his goal was to post “honest” reviews of everyone. Speaking more broadly than just our review, in a strange way it is refreshing that someone is saying the stuff in public that bands often say about each other in the green room (indie acts take...

Stream the soon-to-be-released Besnard Lakes album... →
To me, Besnard Lakes are Canada’s modern day Pink Floyd. Their daydream vocals male/female vocals combined with swirling, fantasy progressions make for any prog-rock or shoegaze fan’s musical wet dream. Or at least I think.

A Year New.
This New Year business is quite the business, indeed. I’m feeling motivated to start anew. I think I’m going to do things this year. Things like begin a career. Things like become a father (maybe not). Things like finish my degree. Things like become a better person. Things like figuring out when I became so cynical? I’m gonna do things this year. I’m going to write a...
