The Tragically Hip - 38 Years Old

To my great shame this is the first Hip song I've ever posted. I don't even know how that's possible. On another note I've now posted more days consecutively than I did in the entirety of January to September, and in another week I'll have blown past 2016's record as well. That may just have something to do with it. It's been a helluva week in a brutal year. Rest easy Gord.

A Perfect Circle - The Doomed

Been a while since we had a new track from these guys.

Could we get a double dose of Maynard in 2018?

Hanging Out with John Dunsworth

No music today. Just some memories of a beauty no longer with us.

Cheers to you John.

Scary Pockets - I Feel It Coming

Tread carefully when going the cover route. It's been done ad nauseam but I dig these guys, just a bunch of random musicians jazzing it up. Think I might actually like this one better than the original, which is really only saved by Daft Punk's production.

Jimmy Swift Band - 80s Runway Model

I'm in Fredericton right now and posting this with telekinesis. These guys aren't playing here tonight but it would be better if they were.

Hey Rosetta! - The Simplest Thing

I remember seeing Tim Baker play for the first time at the Wilser's Room many moons ago, a quiet little songwriter session right around the time when the first EP came out. It was a game-changer. The whole room was mesmerised with what we were hearing.

Now after more than a decade of traveling the world the band is taking a well-deserved break. It's not really a surprise, they've been planning their escape since the beginning. Maybe a couple years down the road we'll catch them at a reunion show or on a random corner in St. John's would seem fitting.

This song stuck with me then and still done many years later. No video for this one. Hit play, close your eyes, and go wherever it takes you.
