The heat and high humidity have a good side and bad. The bad, of course, is that those of us who spend most the regular day outdoors have concerns about sunburn, breathing and general lack of energy. The good side is that because of all the above, we can justify not going out, relaxing with a cold drink and listening to music.
So, here it is, the playlist a whole day early. As promised, there are a number of bands who will be on stage at Hillside on the last weekend of the month, with a few non festival goers thrown in for good measure (who frankly should be at Hillside). Not quite as much rock as usual, but it's that kind of day.
Sirens...The Pack a.d. *
Stairway...Yukon Blonde * (not "To Heaven")
I Love You...Said the Whale *
Back To You...Twin Falls
To Stay Here...The Young Benjamins *
Sea Song...The Wilderness of Manitoba * (this is so very beautiful)
Shoulderblade...Reuben and the Dark *
Heroes of the Sidewalk...Two Hours Traffic * (off the first album Little Jabs)
(Keep Eye On) Other's Gain...Bonnie "Prince" Billy *
Rut and Nuzzle...Snowblink *
Creatures Great and Small...Aidan Knight *
Just Joking (Basement Love Remix)...The Bloody Five
Paper Girl...July Talk *
Wow, that's a lot of Canadian content. And there's lots more where that came from.
Stay cool and safe, people.
And as always, thanks for listening.
