Music From The Mailbag – Shaun Bosch

Shaun Bosch Release Party 2013-39

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.

Random Songs From My Phone – Little Green Cars – Big Red Dragon

Indie Music, Indie Rock, Music, Song Of The Day

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.

A treat this week.  CBC2 has a new number one, Sam Smith and his great new song “Stay With Me”.  Taken from his début album, “In The Lonely Hour”, it is a wonderfully constructed song, highlighted by Sam’s terrific vocals.  This is one song where you can ruminate over your past and remember these times in your life when you indeed, wonder!  The song has taken CBC by storm (the top 20 is listener generated by online voting), having only been released a few weeks ago.  Enjoy!!

 

The number one album this week on CKUA is by Conor Oberst.  The album is titled “Upside Down Mountain”.  Conor is best known for his work with Bright Eyes.  He is a very talented singer-songwriter out of Omaha, Nebraska.  The song I have chosen to show is “Zigzagging Toward The Light”.  A very interesting video. If you get tired of waiting for the music, it starts at the 2:30 mark.  worth the wait.
