Realizations

I’ve come to a realization in the last week or so. My taste in music is like really weird. I definitely I had some preferences that were a little out there, but I honestly hadn’t realized just how far out there I’ve strayed. It took a full weekend of people asking me, “what is this?” rather than “Wow! WHO is this?!” while listening to music to make me fully realize that things might have gotten out of hand. How many people do you know that still listen to Linkin Park? Probably a decent number, that ish is dope. How many…

A Beginners Guide to Canadian Artists

Good gravy this took way longer than I thought it would. Honestly, I blame all of you who sent me some 100 bajillion suggestions, how was I supposed to know that they’d all be so good? Before I even had half of them into the playlist it was well over 7 hours of music, which on one hand is really great to know how much quality Canadian music is out there, but if you know any Americans you know that a 7-hour playlist just isn’t going to fly. Unless it’s 7 hours of The Star-Spangled Banner straight, then they’d have…

Canadian Jams Eh?

I’m doing something different today, not different like yesterday though. Today rather than giving my thoughts on some random topic I have a request. A request specifically for Canadian friends of mine that read this blog. I need you to recommend me good Canadian music. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve taken a fair bit of flak from these yanks I live around in Provo about the great white north, so I want to find some great Canadian things to show them whats what and I’m starting with music. So great Canadian music, ideally I’m looking for rock groups,…

Minor Oddities

It’s summertime in Provo which means that there is a horde of students searching for a place to live in the fall, and up until recently, I was among them. Thankfully I’ve secured an apartment for the upcoming year and won’t have to become homeless. That’s not at all what I wanted to talk about today though, but I needed to give some context for why and how I stumbled on the video I want to talk about. Spoilers there’s a video I saw and I wanted to talk about it. Here it is. The actual contents of the video…

ye

Aight so back on Friday Kayne West dropped his new album “ye” and I’ve listened to is front to back like 6 or 7 times now and I’m proud to announce that I friggin love this thing. It’s whacky and at times all over the place but it’s genuine and Kayne continues to prove that he just an outstanding producer.  Since it’s a short album at only 7 songs I feel like I can just go through each one and give my thoughts. I Thought About Killing You: I really like that through the first half of the song all…

Kero Kero Bonito

I’m gonna be honest. I forgot about posting today. I don’t really have anything. So I’ll just recommend you check out this artist, Kero Kero Bonito. Particularly the album Bonito Generation. A friend of mine recommended it to me and it’s just a joyous “boppy” listen. Great for driving. But yeah that’s it, check it out.
