I’m ready for summer


With all the weird weather we’ve been having, this new wave of sunshine is exactly what I was waiting for.  Here is a playlist to kick start the summer, reveal the new blog design, and celebrate MUSIC BETWEEN FRIENDS being added as an Off The Grid blog for Toronto’s new mega-website THE GRID.

Katie and I have been contributing to the blog for over a year now and what started as a venue for us to share songs/bands that we were listening to among friends, is now looking like a real music blog.  Kind of?  Anyways, this playlist has some personal classics as well as new songs from bands I’m loving right now like Cults and Sleigh Bells.

Coachella 2011 Playlist

The only frustrating thing about the Coachella live webcasts is that you cannot view them in Canada after the original air date. I guess they’ll just have to live on in my memory, just like Rose’s whirlwind romance aboard the Titanic.

Here’s a playlist I whipped up for the occasion! Think of it as a slice of Coachella-shaped birthday cake. A morsel to tide you over until next year.
