Good morning! Today’s album is “Into Lake Griffy” by Good Luck. A bit more punk than usual, but optimistic. Nothing lifts me up like this album.
My friend introduced me to this album and the way he explains it, the band formed out of a random, extreme dip in musical entropy. Boltzmann Brain-style. They made this album and then dissipated back into the aether.
Favourite song is “Bringing Them Back to Life”, check it out.
Good morning! Today’s album is “Fantasies” by Metric.
I never really followed music/bands until Metric, and this was the first time an album came out that really changed the musical direction of one of my favs. Really raw sound, with Emily Haines amazing voice 😍 Metric would lean further into the electronic music angle in subsequent albums.
Lots of stories in these songs, which I love, but also a kind of pop feel. Favourite song: “Gimme Sympathy”
Good morning! Today’s album is “Swooner” by The Zolas. I liked their earlier albums too, but this one leans hard into an electronic vibe you can dance to. I’ve been listening to this when I run 🏃
Favourite song is “Freida on the Mountain”, because it features *heavy* sampling of the Star Trek: TNG transporter sound effect ✨
Good morning! Today's album is "Forcefield" by Tokyo Police Club
I know what you're thinking – what about Champ? What about Elephant Shell? And to that I say: all Tokyo Police Club albums are
Plus the first song "Argentina (Parts I, II, III)" absolutely bangs, check it out, it's my favourite.
Good morning! Today is the last day I share albums each morning. And it shouldn't surprise anyone that I'm ending with The Weakerthans' final album, the live recording of their final concert.
The Weakerthans, and John K Samson, mean a lot to me. Their songs helped me when I was in a bad place, and learning to play those songs helped me leave. Their final album is band at its peak - favourite song is Wellington's Wednesdays, and let me tell you why...
