[Listen] Bahamas- Little Record Girl

bahamas

On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of listening to Bahamas play an intimate session of new tunes from his upcoming album Bahamas is Afie at the CBC studios. “Little Record Girl” is the latest reveal from the album. It’s a song about falling in love with something and then realize you don’t like it so much when it gets popular. You know, kinda like how we’re all hipster about music?


Bahamas is Afie is out August 19th.

[Album Review] The Written Years- The Written Years

Release Date: January 28th, 2014
Label: Independent

The following line from the opening track of ‘The Written Years’ reads like an unstructured stream of consciousness: “Through our broken thoughts that grew in us, I’ll signal back to forgotten friends and tell them that I’ll make it back again, but they’ll be gone like you and I’ll have no place to come back to when our homes all get sold and walls become worn and old.” But if that leads you to think you’ll be left adrift with no verses or chorus to hang on to then you’d be wrong. The trio calling themselves The Written Years put out stories of intense lyrical depth, but they package them in an attractive indie pop wrapping. You may be at a loss to think of a catchy phrase that you can sing in the shower, but the song structures and instrumentation are engagingly familiar, creating a musical work that is just as approachable as it is accomplished.

A delightful folk country number by Twin Peaks. No, not the creepy TV show, but the duo of Lindsay Pratt and Naomi Shore from the northern community of Fort St. John.

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Christine Fellows. RTT was still a child when she released Femmes de chez nous and we had just decided to focus entirely on Canadian music. Well now she is back with Burning Daylight which will be released September 23rd. For now you can listen to the “Call of the Wild”.

The all-female trio, Fox Glove, brew a rootsy mix of folk, alt country and pop they like to call “Fox Pop”. I just call it great.
