It’s nearly impossible to stay completely up-to-date with music these days. The outlets are endless; blogs, iTunes, Soundcloud, Twitter, and you might even pick up a physical CD (RIP HMV Vancouver). Who has the time to sort through all the garbage out there? I do my best. So perhaps this section of the blog will be the go-to starting point for your weekly search.
The Monday Blues & Beats will appear weekly (on Monday if you hadn’t guessed), summarizing the previous week’s releases, or older if I feel it belongs. I always look forward to suggestions, so if my genre-spread isn’t diverse enough, holler.
The National – Rylan
The National – I Need My Girl
(Listen Only – They debuted these two new tracks on Canadian Public Radio on Dec. 7th)
Over two weeks old, but the M83 instrumental meeting Lupe’s flow is hard to pass up.
Produced by Sufjan Stevens, a beautiful instrumental reminiscent of Cinematic Orchestra. Diversity at it’s finest.
