I’m particularly excited by the new album from Stereophonics “Graffiti on the Train”. Stereophonics have released eight studio albums, five of which topped the UK album charts. “Graffiti on the Train” debuted at number three. Unfortunately, they don’t tour often in North America…although I remain hopeful!
And here’s the non-acoustic version of their song Indian Summer.
With this new album release, Stereophonics are getting lots of media coverage in the UK – I find and read as much of it as I can online.
I’m loving the new release from Noah And The Whale!
I grew up loving Hockey Night In Canada. I remember being awake well past my bedtime listening to HNIC via my old transistor radio tucked under my pillow. I still love watching hockey and truly enjoy the HNIC opening segments. Here are a few of my favourites.
Along with many other book lovers in Canada, I just finished watching Canada Reads 2013. “Two Solitudes” by Hugh MacLennan was championed by Jay Baruchel – an excerpt of which he read to open HNIC this past weekend.
“Rosy and Grey” by The Lowest of the Low open up a 2011 HNIC broadcast. The footage is from the Lee’s Palace concert that Dave and I attended – we are both huge fans of the band and actually arrived so early for the concert that we were able to lean against the doors of Lee’s Palace and listen to them warm up. You can read Dave’s review of the show here.
The Sadies – another talented Canadian band – open up a recent HNIC broadcast with their song “Whispering Circles”.
The Tragically Hip actually premiered their song “At Transformation” on the HNIC broadcast of Game 7 of the playoff game between the Washington Capitals and and New York Rangers.
And what hockey fan can forget this – the 60th anniversary celebration of the longest running sports TV show in the world.
I’d like to be in Kinross, Scotland.
Dave Grohl debuted his new documentary Sound City: Reel to Reel at the Sundance Film Festival. It’s a true celebration of music specifically focused on the Sound City music studio and the artists who made records there. You can read more about the film here. To launch the documentary, Grohl asked many of the musicians who made music at the studio to perform as “supergroup” Sound City Players. You can read about last night’s concert here as well as see some of the fan filmed footage of the show. I’ve included a few of my favourites below as well as the trailer for the movie.
As a side note, I also just found out that Dave Grohl will be a keynote speaker at SXSW in March.
