Instant Classics

Every single one of these songs is amazing, as are the artists who have written them. I cannot understate how awesome these songs are – you’ll just have to take my word for it.

What are you waiting for? You need more classic anthems for dancing around in a t-shirt and underwear. This playlist will change your life. Download it.

First Midnight City by M83 hits all the sweet spots of liquid nostalgia. Then, Body Language’s Falling Out slips into bed while a slick funk jam plays in the background. Milagres’s Here To Stay makes you wish you were a better man. Fleeced by Arms takes you back to the days of smoking cigarettes behind the portable. Generationals’s Ten-Twenty-Ten is your best friend dancing on a table, dragging you up there. Ice Cream by Battles is your goofy brother, throwing leaves in your face. Life Fantastic by Man Man is Movember all year long. Best Night by The War On Drugs is watching the windows fog in the backseat. Neat Little Rows by Elbow is wiping the blood off your nose after a back alley fight. The Dodos’s Black Night is the love song you wished he wrote about you. The Seagull by Hot Sugar is a lullaby trapped inside a broken television set. Deerhoof’s No One Asked To Dance is the ransom note for a princess trapped in a castilla. Sea Of Bees’s Marmalade is the cassette you stole from your older cousin’s car. And Little Red’s Rock It is nothing but classic.

Joel Plaskett & Best of the NXNE Line-up

Today, I have a few reasons to shake the dust off my two typing fingers.

First, Joel Plaskett is playing a free outdoor concert tonight that you should probably go to. I’ll be working at the merch table, so feel free to stop by and say hi!

Pheromone’s Beast and MapleMusic Recordings’ Joel Plaskett are opening The Luminato Festival with a free show on Friday June 10th (that’s tonight!) @ 8 PM.
The concert will take place in David Pecaut Square, conveniently located in the heart of the Entertainment District.

As a matter of fact, as I’m writing this, Joel Plaskett is saying “Hi!” to all of my co-workers. Yeah, he’s here in my office (if you will all care to remember, I work at MapleMusic) signing records to be later sold on our website.

Second, let’s talk about NXNE!

Here are a few of the concerts that I’ll be checking out at the upcoming Toronto NXNE Festival. Yet another job perk is that I get my NXNE wristband for frizzle. Check out the schedule yourself and make your own dream NXNE skedge! (that’s phonetic/abbreviation talk for schedule. But really, it sounds like something you’d find inside your underwear after a frightening experience).
