Boolfight is an electro-pop band that hails from Paris, France. This is a dusty one from the mailbag as they dropped me a line in December 2012, ouch and bad on me. The group has released 2 albums, most recently “Feral” in 2012. The song I am featuring is off this record and is “Deluxe”. The tune is a light pop style, hearkening back to my 80’s roots in music. Good tune and an interesting video, which I enjoyed. The vocals are clear and concise, again with a strong 80’s style.

As I attempt to get back on the beat after a fabulous (but not yet over) Canadian summer, I decided to empty the mailbag. Simply put, I have veritable treasure trove of new music that I have had no chance to do much about. Having said that, we will attempt to empty the bag by starting oldest to newest and plowing through them with you the reader, until they are done.
First up, we have Gena Perala, a Canadian artist out of British Columbia. She is a mufti-talented type who not only writes and performs her music, she also writes poetry, with 3 books to her credit. Very impressive. The song I am featuring is from her second album, “Exactly Nowhere”. The song is “Living Proof”. A fine ballad, featuring Gena playing the piano and belting out her tune. Nice song, well produced.

Shaun Bosch is an alt/folk singer songwriter from right here in Alberta. Currently in Edmonton, the cultural hot spot of the province, Shaun has recently released an album titled “Silence”. He recently dropped me a line asking me to take a listen to the first single off the album titled “Garden”. I have and I found a very interesting song filmed in the splendour of the Kananaskis area of Alberta’s Rockies. Emily Coulston is also featured in the song. It has a bit of a country feel to it, with some definite folk. I hear some Jason Mraz and some Bahamas. Nice song, and if you’re interested, you can catch more at these links.

Back from vacation. A quick post to, hopefully, liven up your day. Today’s randomness invokes some indie/folk rock by an Irish group known as “Little Green Cars”. The single is “Big Red Dragon” and is taken from their 2013 album “Absolute Zero”. Picked this one up from iTunes free single of the week. Good singer and a well tweaked production equals an interesting song that has some ear worm potential. The lyrics, a bit cryptic, and a bit dark. Not a single that I am completely in love with, but not one I skip when it comes up on shuffle.
In case you missed me. On vacation until June 23. See you then.
