And Clues, Alden Penner of the Unicorns is making music in the public sphere once again, and I, for none, am pleased.

EPISODE 16 // Hastings Sunrise over the Golden Gate Bridge from Pike Market

March 12th, 2009 by nathan

Hey Cool Cats! The debut offering from Apollo Ghosts has arrived in my palms and I am giddy. A first prediction? I really think that these cats are going to go somewhere. Jangly guitars with good energy and clever songwriting = $5 dollar record that is selling like a Honey Badger on a Cobra. We meander through the Seattle indie rock scene and end up in California and play some work from the Jay/Megan collaborative team in Fine Mist and International Falls. It’s Pop Music From Around Here.

EPISODE 15

March 4th, 2009 by nathan

It’s Pop Music From Around Here on the busiest week of the semester. And yet, still a pretty good mix. Not that I deserve any credit. The Mohawk Lodge does, and Karl Blau…and No Kids…And Mother Mother…and Veda Hille…who am I kidding. But I guess recognizing greatness is something, no?

Desolation Wilderness - No Tomorrow

Jamison Dyck has left the studio, but not before curating an excellent batch of Pop Music From Around There and pumping it out onto the airwaves from Studio 1 in CIVL Radio, Abbotsford, BC, Canada, The World, The Universe(Kids love that kind of stuff, I learned about that in EDUC 200 - Educational Psychology).

JD dishes his favourite tracks from Grizzly Bear, The Dodos, Parachutes while Nathan steals a little water from the Halifax pop music excellence well playing Brent Randall and his Pinecones and Lara Peek and the Winning Hearts.

EPISODE 14 // Pop Music From Around There w/ Larry Portelance

February 18th, 2009 by nathan

Larry Portelance, well versed in the music communities of the East Coast comes for the 2nd time into CIVL Radio’s studio 1 and listeners of Pop Music From Around Here/There gain the benefits of his gleanings. I offer my 2 cents as well, playing tracks from Nathan Lawr and the Minotaurs, Brent Randall and his Pinecones, The Maughams and commenting judiciously along with Larry. But this is Larry’s baby. Eric’s trip, Jenn Grant, A/V, Sleepless Nights…Yes.

EPISODE 13 // Crashing Computadoras, Stressing Nathan

February 18th, 2009 by nathan

Egad, computer problems. Servers crashing. It’s nearly all online streaming content today. But good online streaming content. Except that transitioning from myspace to myspace, loading and stopping pages from playing at innapropriate times is stressful. Moreover, it was pretty lonely in the studio.

BUT. A good lineup which I could rattle of now, or you could hop your eyes a line down and read it for yourself.

Apollo Ghosts - Ghost Get Out Of My Apartment

Golden Touch - From a Backseat

Falcao & Monashee - Starlight

Aidan Knight - Cold House ( On the DL)

The Dudes - Don’t Talk

February 5th, 2009 by nathan

Welcome to another episode of Pop Music From Around There, courtesy of guest host and pal Sarah Vanpopta. There means the “Yours to Discover” Province. That means Ontario. If yours to discover means I need to do the leg work to discover just how great Ontario is, that sounds hard, and daunting, something I don’t have the energy to do. Fortunately Sarah takes us on a tour of her land, stopping in Guelph, Mississauga, Toronto and her hometown Hamilton and feeds us the best of each locale. New new new track from Zachary Aasman, songs courtesy of The D’ubervilles, Andre Charles Theriault and Allosaurus with a couple of Pop Music From Around Here mainstays as well.
