It's kind of overwhelming when you all of the sudden have access to almost any music you'd like, and I did not know where to begin. Rather than trying to rack my brain, or spend time I simply don't have perusing the Internet, I decided to visit my friend Madison's blog.
Okay, so especially since I recently became a mother, I just straight up don't have time to stay in the loop with the cool jams. I don't listen to popular music, I've been listening to the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack for 3 months and the last 5 videos in my YouTube history are Bob Seger. I used to listen to a wider variety of music, I also used to go to a lot of local shows. These days, I'm just grateful to have cool friends that are in the know, who I can go to for guidance on what to listen to in (Summer) 2015. It is so convenient to be able to go to one website and get all the information I need quickly and easily. I trust my girl Madi's taste in music, so a lot of the times I will download bands she recommends even if I've never heard of them. 9/10 times she nails it. One of her favourite musicians is Kate Bush, what more do you need to know?
If you live in London, Ontario, you will especially appreciate her selection, as she tries to include as much local music as possible. Well, the good stuff. Chances are if you're a band in the city, and you're not half-bad, she will play you- or has played you. I strongly suggest talking to her about "trading press" because if she likes you, aside from promoting you on her blog she can also play you on the radio! Wolfwizard Radio is every Thursday morning from 9-11AM on CHRW 94.9fm (or online at chrwradio.ca).
And finally, here is what I've decided to download after spending an hour on WWR's Tumblr:
Unknown Mortal Orchestra
new Death from Above 1979
So excited to finally have some good new music! Just in time for the summer. Thank you Madison for being a super cool lady.
