Your weekly reminder to try the Sirius: Face the Music contest, where one lucky (and skilled) town in Ontario will win an intimate concert with Bedouin Soundclash and Broken Social Scene.  While you’re studying to get better at music trivia, learn a bit more about this three-piece.  If I were asked who produced their album from last year, I never would have guessed King Britt.  Guess thats why I’m not on the leaderboard.

Video: Higher Love

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. recently performed in Indianapolis via My Old Kentucky Blog.  In their set they covered Steve Winwood’s classic “Higher Love”, captured on video by MonkeyEatsMonkey.  Upon hearing this track, I instinctively get nostalgic and picture the closing credits to Big Business.

You can also watch them perform “Vocal Chords” here.

New Music From Canon Blue

Loving this first single “Indian Summer (Des Moines)” from the album Rumspringa, the 11-song orchestral-pop record from multi-instrumentalist Daniel James (aka Canon Blue).  The record was written while Daniel was touring the world with Efterklang, primarily recorded in the off-hours at their Copenhagen studio. Mads and Casper from Efterklang helped produce the record that features guest appearances by themselves, Slaraffenland, & amiina.

Look for this record August 29th 2011 on Rumraket.

A Crowded Hour / Superhumanoids

Day dreaming to first listens to the new track from Superhumanoids, the b-side to “Mikelah” on the  7″ Out Now On White Iris Records.  I’ve become a great fan of this band, so glad that I was able to see them perform at NXNE.  The room cleared out after Cults, I was one of a few lucky people to catch them live.

Please enjoy “A Crowded Hour” in both audio and video form below.
