This week’s mix has a bit of a nod to last week’s St. Jean celebrations, among other things. It’s always interesting having three national holidays (St. Jean, Canada Day & the 4th of July) so close together. It makes me happy to be a part of more than one place worth celebrating.
Next week we take on the US. Canada can fend for itself.
- Calexico – The Ballad of Cable Hogue
- Robert Charlebois – Quebec Love
Y fait soleil même si ça pleut, même si ça pète même si ça tonne
- Final Fantasy – This Is The Dream Of Win And Regine
I never really got into Arcade Fire. Final Fantasy was always more my speed. I haven’t put this song on a mix since 2005.
Montreal might eat its young, but Montreal won’t break us down.
- Bruce Peninsula – Light Flight
I may have said this last week, but hot weather makes everything sound better.
- The Black Keys – Everlasting Light
- The Mynabirds – Radiator Sister
New album by The Mynabirds was out earlier this month. I found it pleasantly surprising.
- Goldfrapp – Koko
- Okkervil River – Riot Act
message received, loud and clear
- Ray Charles – (Night Time Is) The Right Time
- Fiona Apple – Every Single Night
