So I took the weekend off the blog to enjoy Canadian Thanksgiving. The weekend and I have no real personal attachment other than a long weekend and eating a large meal. But let’s be serious, isn’t that every holiday…amiright? Honestly it is nice to have a full family meal (the in-laws at least, I am an only child and single parent product…can you say after school special? Awwwwwwww.)
Aaaaannnnyyyway. I thought I would ease into the week and simply give a couple links and streams of some songs I have been listening to lately and did indeed make an appearance over the holiday weekend. Giving thanks for various mp3s, I guess…
The first track is from Jose Delhart’s “Little Red Buddha” album that is immensely moody, slightly mexi-cali influenced and a great headphone album. If you don’t believe me, take a listen below to a track from this Brooklyn artist/musician.
The Last Battle have a new album out called “Heart of the Land, Soul of the Sea” and this is exactly what I think of when I think of the UK folk scene. Songs that feel personal and inspired, and songs that you will feel both connected to but still want to sing along to with the rest of the pub. Take a listen.
We also have the Jim Bryson & The Weakerthans track for “Constellation” from the upcoming “The Falcon Lake Incident”. I am always attracted to a great Canadian combination and especially one that references a place I am familiar with (Falcon Lake). This is not a surprise considering The Weakerthans are involved (proud Winnipeg indie outfit) and all. The song is definitely going to be one of the slower tracks on the album, and it is simply a great listen. Find out more at Kelp Records. I also thought I would end this post on a great Canadian note!
There you have it, enjoy your Tuesday!
