I haven't written much about my musical interests on my blog but today I have a perfect excuse. The glue has worn off the Post-It reminder note I keep pinned to my monitor with artist names on it. It's time to start a new page with new names.
I still buy all my music on CD (if it's good enough for Bill Gates, it's good enough for me
) and whenever I'm struck by the "gotta buy that disc" mood I order the discs for all of the other artists I've saved up. I found out today that David Francey
released a new album a few weeks ago so it's one of those "gotta get it now" times. Without further ado, here's the rest of the list in the rough order that I added them :
I'd link myspace
pages rather than artist websites but myspace pages have no class.... Between tacky background images, animations, horrendous layout, garish colours, and "Thanks for the Add" signature blocks I just want to vomit.
And yes, they are all Canadian artists but it is not because I am biased against non-Canadians. The only music radio I listen to is CBC.ca
so that does skew significantly what I'm exposed to. I happily take recommendations though. If you know any of the artists on this list and have suggestions for others I might like, speak up!
I'm also really looking forward listening to the newly released legal (!
), free (!!
), massive (!!!
) SXSW 2007 Showcasing Artists
compilation torrent. I've a lot of good listening out of the 2006
