episode #268 – Adventures In Your Own Backyard

The impending summer hiatus of myboytheriotgirl has made a priority out of stuffing as much music as we can into shows, so behold, 57+ minutes of music glory for your ears’ pleasure.

Starting off with the lead track off of Atlas Sound’s 2011 disc Parallax, we then get to a track from the highly anticipated album from secretive Canadian duo Purity Ring. The Halifax/Montreal band will be releasing Shrines on July 24th, and we can’t wait for it!

And speaking of acts out of Montreal with albums you can’t wait for: Polaris winner Patrick Watson and band have just released their latest (yesterday). Having listened to it a few dozen times on the CBC Music website, we can’t get enough of this delicately crafted pop, so we end the show with the first three tracks off the disc.

Before that, though, we get to a couple of dedications (New Order to Brendan,  and Land of Talk to Regan), some Screaming Females followed by a female screaming, and classics by the Fiery Furnaces, Peter Bjorn & John, and The Besnard Lakes (more Montreal!)

Also, since this video is just so darrrrling, you should take five minutes and watch it to behold the talent that is Patrick Watson & co.
