Something for the Weekend...

I love calendars.  More specifically I love the process of plotting music events like concerts, release dates and festivals on a fresh calendar.  Maybe it's the OCD in me - but it's a simple task that brings me a bit of joy while building excitement about the music itself.  T.M.I.?  Oh well - now you know.

I forgot to mention that I listen to lots of music while plotting and this last round allowed me to either discover or revisit amazing music that's come out recently. These particular tracks have been the soundtrack to my 2015 thus far and make me look forward to what's to come.

It's January which means line-ups for festival are being announced along with dates and such. Although I won't be heading to Palm Springs for Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival  - it's a killer announcement of acts spread across 2 weekends in April.   I do hope to make it to NYC for this year's Governor's Ball though.  Mr. Gallagher will be playing this one which is the closest thing to an Oasis reunion we're going to see for some time. 

February means The Grammy Awards - then March brings us Canada's JUNO Awards in Hamilton - and the following week is SXSW in Austin, Texas.  Not a bad way to get one's head out of the fact that it was literally colder in Canada than it is on Mars this week.

Here are 5 tracks that I'm in love with at this time and simply want to recommend to you. Enjoy!

The Black Keys - 'The Weight of Love' *video not on YouTube:(

The War on Drugs - 'Red Eyes'

Bombay Bicycle Club - 'Home By Now'

Wu Tang Clan - 'A Better Tomorrow'

Tobias Jesso Jr. - 'Hollywood'

Thanks for reading/listening,
