Hey, I’m back! Did ya miss me?
In case you were wondering…I had a wonderful time in London! But enough about that! Let’s get down to business.

The next Juno is here! Well it’s coming out in October. And it’s not actually Juno but it is Michael Cera’s new romantic teen comedy with an amazing soundtrack, entitled Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist. This soundtrack is going to give the Juno soundtrack a run for it’s money. Just look at the list of bands on it:

-Chris bell (of Big Star)
-Devendra Banhart
-Bishop Allen
-Vampire Weekend (with Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo)
-The Dead 60’s
-Takka Takka
-The Submarines
-We Are Scientists
-Band of Horses
-Army Navy
-Richard Hawley
-Shout Out Louds
-Paul Tiernan

What the? Not one song involving Kimya Dawson? Weird…Maybe it’s not that kinda movie.

Anyways, i have no idea how the movie will be, but I am super excited for the music!

Here’s the trailer:

Other than that, after visiting Rough Trade Records East in London or as I like to call it: the best record store I’ve ever been to, I’ve compiled a list of new bands and artists that I will be checking out in the coming days/weeks. Here is the list:

-The Jimmy Cake
-The Little Ones
-The Owl Service
-Josephine Foster and the Supposed
-Laura Gibson
-Bodies of Water

So if you know any of these bands please tell me what you think, or what songs to listen to.

Ok now I’m going back to the opening ceremony of the Olympics, and then bed. I’ve been up for something like 20 hours. Go Canada!

Well hello there!

I have finally recovered from my jet lag and have come across my good friend Casey’s lap top, so I can finally give you a little update. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to post a song of the week for last week, but this week when I get home friday I will post one. It will almost definately be Radiohead. But I will commit to nothing.

So in between my seeing of sights, I managed to go to a really cool record store called Rough Trade Records. That store made almost every record store that I’ve ever been to look like shit! Seriously, this store was chalk full of the absolute best music. Not only that, but they have live concerts at the store pretty much every day! Coming up in the store are performances by Johnny Flynn, Noah and the Whale, Dengue Fever the Hold Steady, and many others. In short, it’s an amazing record shop.

Other than that, I’ve been listening to a lot of Radiohead, MGMT and Mum. And I’m seeing Holly Throsby in concert on Wednesday, so I’m really excited about that!

Hopefully, I will be able to update again before I get home on Friday. But who knows! All i know for sure is I’m going in Buckinham Palace and to Abbey Road.



Have you seen this video yet?

That song is on Holly’s new album, entitled “A Loud Call”. It came out just a few days ago so go pick yourself up a copy!
