This show started with some songs from a funky mix released by Dent May that he called "Escape From Groove Mountain". The songs are great and I just can't stop listening to it, what is cool is that you can download it yourself from the links below. Going along well with this funky set was a request by Milosz for the band White Shoes And The Couples Company.
After a set of some recent indie releases, I ended with some bands that I had either seen live or picked up their recent releases. In particular I played a selection by The Hive Dwellers which is the recent project by Calvin Johnson. He recently did a series of lower key shows around Southern Ontario and I was lucky enough to see him twice in Hamilton. I had forgotten how much I loved his live show.
Best song I heard since the last show - Colonel Abrams - I'm Not Gonna Let (Shuffle Inc. Radio Edit) Download it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLJJ8dWPBEQ&feature=related
