The blog has been standing still for various of reasons, but I’m on vacation now and try to post a few songs I’ve loved the most during the recent times. First off to Montreal, Quebec for the new Le Ren song and EP announcement. Love Can’t Be The Only Reason To Stay was one of my favorite songs (and music videos) of 2019 and I’m thrilled that Secretly Canadian signed her and will release a new EP Morning & Melancholia on the 31st of July. Here’s the beautiful new song and video If I Had Wings.
Moving over to Toronto, Canada for a double beauty from Luka Kuplowsky. Le Ren joining Secretly Canadian roster and Luka Kuplowsky becoming a part of the Mama Bird Family has been some of the best music news of this horrible year. We already got the cover EP Judee Justin Arthur Mary in April and it’s followed by an album full of own material on the 2nd of October. Here’s a Judee Sill cover There’s a Rugged Road from the EP and the first single Never Get Tired (of Loving You) from the forthcoming album Stardust.
Sticking in Toronto, Canada for a while, but briefly celebrating the finest music of 2014. The great Spanish label Son Canciones reissued and extended edition of Julie Arsenault wonderful album The Creature That I Call Myself. Here’s Island Girl from the original album along with a Southern Souls live video of Prochoice that can be found from the Mom Rock EP and from the extended edition of this album.
Last station on this roundabout is Galway, Ireland and my favorite song from the marvelous new Brigid Mae Power album Head Above the Water that was released by Fire Records on the 5th of June. This captivating and powerful song is called Wearing Red That Eve.
