@@ Busdriver: Beaus&Eros #1 hip hop record at Vancouver’s CFUV. I like it, I don’t love it. His flow is cool, it’s odd, it didn’t hit the bullseye for me.
@@ The October Trio – New Dream. #1 jazz album at CFUV. Jazz from a Canadian sax, bass, and drums trio. Solid, not particularly adventurous, but there are an awful lot of not very adventurous people out there who might dig this. Very reminiscent of Mark Turner’s playing, so his fans should check these guys out.
@@ Fucked Up: Year of the Tiger. A 12-inch single Out on Matador, #1 loud record at CFUV. Starts slow, kinda proggy and epic, I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would.
@@ Grimes – Visions. #1 electronic at CFUV. Pop-tronica. Dreamy, female vocals, four on the floor. A little too light for me. Great for all you mall rats out there.
@@ Delhi 2 Dubland: this hybrid of Indian music and Irish music doesn’t work for me. I say one or the other. Hyper produced and slick, this is a bit of a gimmick. I’m a super hardcore listener and I’m going to listen to a whole album of this? I don’t think so.
@@ Leonard Cohen – Old Ideas. Oh Leonard, bum me out. Pretty straightforward musically, it’s all about Mr. Cohen’s voice and his lyrics.
