Goodbye Summer 2014

summer I think we can all agree that summer was a bit of a late bloomer this year. From late night hangouts with friends, squished between thousands at a music festival, tanning all day at the beach, going away for a weekend camping trip, etc., many find summer to be the most memorable time of the year. My music taste tends to come in seasonal waves. While I mostly prefer rock and indie acts, which you can probably tell by my previous posts, there’s something about the laid back, almost nostalgic nature of summer that encourages me to bring other genres into the mix. From old to new, from hip hop to country, here’s what made my summer a good one. Continue reading →

2013 in Music

Screen shot 2013-12-31 at 1.28.31 PM

2013 was a great year in music. A flood of new bands came onto the music scene. New songs were released from old favourites. Other artists changed the game through their released work.

While there have been some music downfalls, there have more than enough music triumphs to wash the bad ones out of our memories and shine on their own merit.  In no particular order, here are my top fifty songs of 2013.

        With the lowering of temperatures lately, it’s clear that winter is approaching. Rather than be sad about the plants dying, the days getting shorter, and having to see white for the next few months, let’s enjoy these last few weeks of fall we have left. What better way to celebrate something than through music?

Here is the playlist that I’ll be using to say a sweet farewell to my favourite time of year: Continue reading →

Fall 2012 Playlist

My obsession with fall continues each year a little stronger than the last.  Despite the good and bad changes that happen throughout the year, one thing that you can depend on for fall is new music.  For me, it’s similar to having Christmas two times a year instead of one because SO many bands tour in the fall, particularly the up-and-coming or lesser known ones.  Plus, you can combine a lot of great fall things on the way to show venues like walking through the fallen, colorful leaves and stopping to get your hazelnut or pumpkin spice latte/coffee on the way, while wearing your awesome fall scarf.  How does that not sound great?  Here’s my fall playlist this year to listen to as you think about it.  Let me know your thoughts and enjoy the rest of this beautiful season while it lasts!

Fall Playlist

My favorite season is finally here! Fall!!! The beautiful colors that the trees display, the cooler weather and the general creativity that results from it give me so much pleasure that I feel like I’m constantly smiling.  My love affair with fall is so strong that I’ve already decided my wedding will be in October.  I don’t know who my husband will be, but I know our wedding date.

The fashion is better as girls trade in their flip-flops and tank tops for boots and scarves as they recreate their style with new colors and various layers before having to wear a winter coat for the next three months.  Candles and incense become a recreational activity, filling the space with smells of pumpkins and autumn leaves.  Coffee and tea taste better with flavors like hazelnut and pumpkin spice are added. Seriously. How could you not love fall? Continue reading →
