Your weekly dose of indie pop and rock is in, and it’s a satisfying melange of new and classic tracks, with a healthy helping of Canadian artists. We start things off with a set dedicated to a long-time fan, hearing from a couple of Vancouver electronic artists (Teen Daze & Little Chords) that she’s in love with.
We also get to a cute little track from buzz-band Hospitality, and an old favourite by Sparklehorse that should bring back memories. Things wind down with some material of Andrew Bird’s latest, a track from a Guelph duo called Memoryhouse, and another timeless-sounding nod back to the 90s courtesy of Boards of Canada.
After Rae Spoon destroys London, we let Dan Bejar’s Destroyer play us out with the lead-track off his wonderful 2006 release, Destroyer’s Rubies. We’ll be back next week, so send us your requests, recommendations and hit-lists, and tune back in next Wednesday!
