We have new number 1’s on both charts this week.  We will start with the number 1 song in Canada (as charted by CBC2), “Holding On For Life”, the newest single from the collaboration Broken Bells.  Broken Bells is a group headed up by Danger Mouse and James Mercer of the Shins.  The tune is basically a Bee Gee’s redux, very reminiscent of their work during the Saturday Night Fever era.





The CKUA album chart has a new leader as well, Colleen Brown and her new EP, Direction 1: Major Love.  Colleen is a Canadian folk/pop musician with 3 albums to her credit.  The song I have chosen is called Mountain Man.  Interesting tune, but, not in my wheelhouse.
