Talent Tuesday – New Canadian Releases – March 20, 2012

A bit of a slow week, made up for by a release by a band who I have enjoyed over the past few years.

That band is Yukon Blonde, out of Kelowna, BC and the album is “Tiger Talk”.   These guys have a bright future and I see them as a potential break out band in the next year or two.  This indie-rock band has a distinct style with some interesting guitar riffs.


I like them enough to post a second tune.  This one was recorded live at CBC.

My Girl

The other release is an EP by singer-songwriter “Grey Kingdom”.  They have a definite folk feel to their music.  The EP is titled The Weeping Suns and has 4 songs. This tune is performed live.

My international release of the week is by The Shins.  They hail from Albuquerque, New Mexico and have been playing and releasing albums since 1992.  What attracted me to this album “Port of Morrow” was a tune called “Simple Song”.  I have heard this during my commute and it is quickly growing on me.  Enjoy a potential Top 10 of 2012.
