Track List – December 21st

AKA the show where your humble hostess talked way too much about broken hearts and played that one song from all the Supernatural season finales without once mentioning the words “Sam” or “Dean”, and regrets NOTHING.

Track List – November 30th

I know I’m late, but voila! Here she is.
My friend Dix made a Spotify playlist to accompany the show, because he’s awesome like that. So in case you miss the stream (though it’ll be up for a week on my CFUV show page), find it here.

Track List – November 23rd

Today was the Cancon-tastic special! I think all but three of my songs were Canadian this week, which is just proof that Avril Lavigne and Celine Dion can suck it. We have some outrageously talented musicians in this country, and particularly in this province. West Coast represent!

I also spoke for about seven minutes on Green Day and Bush-era politics, which lost me a listener and then gained him back when I explained that I normally just spend time drooling over the sweet, sweet crevices of Boards of Canada albums. I still maintain that I will be going back to re-review American Idiot, likely on this very blog, because I do think it may be a better album than we give it credit for now. But that’s in the future. For now, here is the track list!

Arcade Fire – You Already Know (Reflektor)
White Poppy – Wear Me Away (White Poppy)
Basia Bulat – Wires (Tall Tall Shadow)
Jordan Klassen – Strengthen Me With Raisins (Repentance)
The Zolas – Knot in my Heart (Ancient Mars)
Neko Case – Man (The Worse Things Get, The Harder I fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You)
The Royal Oui – Actual Size (Forecast)
Library Voices – Anthem for a New Canadia (Summer of Lust)
Jets Overhead – Butterflies (Boredom and Joy)
Green Day – 21 Guns (American Idiot: Broadway Soundtrack)
Destroyer – El Rito (Five Spanish Songs)
Janelle Monaé – Dance Apocalyptic (The Electric Lady)
The Polyphonic Spree – You Don’t Know Me (Yes, It’s True)
Georgia Murray – Just a Dream (Just a Dream)
Towers and Trees – Wandering Ivy (Broken Record EP)
Chris Ho – Doesn’t Make Sense (City of Dust)
Teagan Johnston – Three Blind Mice (Winter’s Child EP)
The Dandy Warhols – SETI vs the WOW! Signal (This Machine)
