Hey everybody

Welcome to spring/winter/fall this week. Did see snowdrops and the usual clock ahead thing happened. How many of us showed up late to stuff this week? Pick me, pick me.

Anyway, I did manage to put together a pretty eclectic playlist for your listening pleasure.
I can't tell you what time it is, but who cares when you are listening to great music?

Time Flies ... Joel Plaskett Emergency * (how appropriate)
Dirty ... Rocketface *
Queens Will Play ... Black Mountain *

Baby Jane ... Christian D and the Hangovers *
Dream Vision ... Lachlan Horne (new)

Hey everybody,

Good grief, what happened? We are into the home stretch for winter and walking around in shorts one minute (yes, I saw a guy in shorts this week) and then pushing the shovel around the very next day.

Hey everybody!

Decisions, decisions this week. Do I do a full on Valentine's Day show or just stuff that can be taken in a number of ways? Well, after careful deliberation, the latter won out although the last cut is dedicated to someone special, now and forever.

So here it is. Whether you are enjoying the flush of joy that goes with new love or reflecting on betrayal or loss, there is something for everyone.

Showing My Face ... Shape Shifting Aliens (new)
Love Bomb ... Grinderman (maybe this one is sort of Valentine material)
Psycho Killer ... Talking Heads (sure hope this one isn't)
Haunts ... Spectre Hearts * (new)
Reconcile ... Austra * (Valentine material?)
Saint Nothing ... Qristina and Quinn Bachand *
Winter Tale ... Ummagma * ( pretty obvious why this one is here)
Peace and Love ... Cat Power (VDay and every day)
When We Go ... Freedom Baby * (new! From Toronto!)
More Than You Know ... Eddie Vedder (be my valentine)
Waiting For You ... The Nonsense * (new, playing at the Horseshow on Feb. 15 )
Laying In An Angel's Corpse ... Uubbuurruu * (for the lovesick goth in all of us)
Venus ... Lucky + Love (no explanation required)
Torch Song ... Todd Rundgren (dedication)

Thanks for listening. See you next week.
Be safe, be kind.
