April Songs

The songs I can’t get out of my head this month are:

  • Hollerado – Juliette, Got to Lose

The high-energy tracks on Hollerado‘s debut album Record in a Bag put me in a good mood. I can’t wait to see them live on June 16th at the Piston with my friends The Order of Good Cheer.

  • Said the Whale – The Light is You

A feel good song from the Vancouver based band that makes for the perfect soundtrack to a laid-back summer’s day.

  • Hawksley Workman – (The Happiest Day I Know is a) Tokyo Bicycle

A new track from his album Meat!

  • The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition

I first heard this song in the movie 500 Days of Summer. It’s infectiously catchy and melodic.

  • The Besnard Lakes – Albatross

From The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night, the follow-up to …Are The Dark Horse, which landed the band a Polaris Music Prize nomination.

  • CocoRosie – Werewolf

The American-born, Paris-based sister duo make an eclectic blend of music that incorporates elements of pop, hip-hop, blues and opera. This song dates back to 2007… but I just discovered it now.

  • BSS – Forced to Love

Forgiveness Rock Record, the band’s highly anticipated fourth album, hits shelves on May 4, 2010. Meanwhile I still can’t get over the fact that of all the concerts, I wound up getting injured (see below) at a Broken Social Scene show. What are the chances?

  • A.C. Newman – There Are Maybe Ten or Twelve

Another oldie, posted in anticipation of Together, the new album from The New Pornographers, also due out on May 4, 2010.
