It’s not unknown to friends and family that I listen to music 24/7. I’ve been itching to share what I’ve been enjoying lately, so I’ve compiled a short list of albums/artists that you should definitely check out!
Quick pro-tip: There are seemingly infinite amounts of awesome Canadian Indie-Pop/Rock groups, but some are hard to find. CBC Music and BRBR TFO are pretty much the mecca of awesome Canadian music. Follow @CBCMusic, @CBCRadio3, and @BRBRTFO on Twitter; your ears will love you for it.
Without any further ado, I give you a small part of my soul (a.k.a. my iTunes library):
“The Chase” from Groenland. I have no words for this album; it’s AMAZING. Groenland is an Indie-Pop group hailing from Montréal, so you should definitely take a listen to them for the sole reason that they’re Canadian! I found them after I downloaded a mix-tape from BRBR. Favourite track: 26 Septembre. (My birthday!)
I went to CBC Music Fest in the Summer and was introduced to some really amazing artists. Aidan Knight was one of them:
“Trouble Will Find Me” from The National. Favourite track: I Need My Girl.
Passenger, Passenger, and more Passenger. All the Passenger.
“Native” from OneRepublic. Favourite track: Something’s Gotta Give.
“The Golden Age” from Woodkid. Favourite track: Conquest of Spaces.
I’ve heard a mixed-bag of reviews of Lady Gaga‘s most recent album, ARTPOP, but I love it! It’s weird, interpretive, sexy, and all-around perfect. Slay, Gaga, slay. Favourite track: Gypsy.
And although I don’t listen to it 24/7, I am known to need my electronic fix; it’s a genre of music that I genuinely appreciate regardless of opinions stating that electronic artists are “not real talents”. LIES, ALL LIES.
I had listened to Bakermat in the past, but I’ve been much more exposed to him and other European artists since I’ve been in Brussels. He produces some solid study music:
Happy listening et à bientôt!
