With all this talk about 2016 being such a horrible year, at least the music didn’t suck.
Here’s my Top 50, built from my collection of monthly playlists. Listen, like and share.
See you in 2017,
Well, I’m 17 days late on posting this best of July playlist, but better late than never! Check out new music from Francis & The Lights, Grouplove, Jagwar Ma, PAPA along with IMF newcomers Dom Zilla, Cassius and Klangstof.
YESSSSSS. Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Augé (aka Justice) are back with their first track in five years called “Safe And Sound”. Featuring the French duo signature slap bass and disco strings, make some room in your playlist for some nu-disco house.
There are so many great music festivals happening this summer that I just wish I would be able to attend. Case in point, the Pemberton Music Festival; a five-day festival taking place Wednesday, July 16 to Sunday, July 20 in beautiful Pemberton, BC (located near Whistler, BC) . With nearly 100 performances and six separate performance areas, including two main stages, two secondary stages, a dance tent and a comedy area, Pemberton Music Festival will be five glorious days of music, comedy, and camping on 300 clean, open acres in one of the most idyllic settings on Earth.
The stellar lineup includes the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Outkast, Deadmau5, Soundgarden, Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, Metric with IMF favourites Justice [DJ Set], TV On The Radio, St. Vincent, The New Pornographers, Stars, Hayden, Matt Mays, Hey Rosetta!, Rich Aucoin and many more.
Care of The Pemberton Music Festival, I’ve got two General Admission Tickets + Camping or Shuttle to give away to one lucky winner. There is only one way to enter. Email me at chris AT indiemusicfilter.com with “PEMBERTON” in the subject line with your full name in the body. Tell your friends in the west to enter! Deadline is WEDNESDAY, JULY 9TH at NOON (EST). I’ll notify the winner that day.
“New Lands” by Justice, from the New Lands EP available on iTunes. This big budget video (possibly my favourite of the year so far) was created by Spanish collective Canada, who puts their interpretation on the song with a throw back to Escape From New York, Rollerball and Any Given Sunday.
