Theme: Hillside review
|A lot of this show was dedicated to my review of the Hillside Festival that took place in Guelph in late July. Apart from the artists that I previously knew about, it is always cool to find out about bands that I didn't know existed. My favourite find this year were the Library Voices, as I said in the show, if Los Campesinos! grew up in Regina instead of Wales, they would have been the Library Voices. Another band I quite enjoyed was FRED, apologies to Bernard for not seeing them at the Starlight for St. Patrick's Day. |
The first song of the show I first heard on a patio overlooking Niagara Falls, thanks to S for helping to find out the name of the song. The last song was from the movie "500 Days of Summer", a movie I liked on its own but the peppering of indie music throughout made it all the better, thanks to M for getting the song for me. The rest of the show was my usual indie mix.
Things I referenced on the show:
