Music I’m Listening To

Since I did a round-up of the games I’m playing right now, I thought I’d also do what music I’m listening to at the moment. Just for fun.

Coeur de Pirate – Coeur de Pirate

A beautiful album by Montreal native  Beatrice Martin. A really great chill out album. By the way the album is entirely in French. (Unfortunately I wasn’t able to post any of the real music videos since they don’t allow embedding.)

Fool’s Gold – Fool’s Gold

Lately I’m into African type rhythms, and this album really caught my attention. Just listening to it makes me so happy.

Gang of Four – Return the Gift

I’ve always been into Gang of Four, but recently I’ve listened to them a lot. I love the rawness and attitude. They also came up with one of my favorite lines in a song ever, “To hell with poverty we’ll get drunk on cheap wine”. Check out some awesome dancing below.

Matt & Kim – Grand

Another fun and catchy indie album full of great songs.

Friendly Fires – Friendly Fires

I’ve basically been listening to this album steadily for over a year now. It’s so fantastic.It kind of reminds me of the Talking Heads a little bit.

    I must agree with Friendly Fires, I’ve been loving that album, kiss of life, pretty cool. Hey do you like the Animal Collective? I saw them in Amsterdam in March, hotness.

  2. But none of them breathe fire, drool bllod, smash guitars, or fly into the rafters!
    No fun!!

    Eric,

    I like Coeur de Pirate a lot. They are from Mtl and sing in french (mostly) but it needed an anglo-ontarian moving to Sendai and write about it in a blog about, mostly, Japan, for me to get to know them. And round and round in the world we go…. Thanks for the introduction, I have now a few of their songs living happily in my mp3 player, and soon they will be moving to my Iphone.

  5. >some great Canadian music

    Helix, KiLLeR DWaRfS, Nickleback

    • I hate to tell you this, but those aren’t good Canadian bands.

      • Like Anvil (another Canadian band), the lyrics that Helix and the Killer Dwarfs write (wrote) are (were) kinda goofy.

        But I thought that was their novelty. (Is it some kind of unique Canadian humor?).

        But their music sounds good. And I think Nickleback has some really good songs.

        • Most Canadians hate Nickleback. Just like we hate Celine Dion, Alanis Morriset, and Avril Lavigne.

          • Oh well, I like Nickleback…but, I’m not Canadian.😉

            >Celine Dion, Alanis Morriset, and Avril Lavigne.

            All terrible!

            Sebastian Bach (original singer of the American band “Skid Row“) is from Canada.
