The 7:40 Songbook – March 5th, 2014

A pleasant drive today.  The sun is up, but that will change again next week with daylight savings coming in.  Traffic on Glenmore was very light and the music on CKUA was great.  Pulled into the lot a bit early and caught up on some news while waiting for 7:40 to roll over on the digital dial.

Today’s tune is a new release by Helio Sequence, an alternative band out of Portland.  A duo, they have a melodic sound with a hard driving edge.  Very enjoyable tune for you called “Stoic Resemblance”.  And live of course.

Song Of The Day – Dave Matthews Band – “Too Much”

Hi all.  Trying to get back into this once more.  Great song to come back with, a classic from the Dave Matthews Band called “Too Much”.  Used the way back machine as it was recorded and released in 1996.

Random Songs From My Phone – Gabriella Cilmi – Save The Lies

Australian singer writer Gabriella Cilmi‘s song”Save The Lies” is the result of my random shuffle today.  The song is off her 2008 album “Lessons To Be Learned“.  She has a very interesting voice, very Amy Winehouse in nature.  Lori was the original discoverer of the artist this time.  Heard her in a hair salon of all places and she fell in love with the voice.

Hayley Sales is a Canadian/American singer songwriter.  Born in DC, she moved with her family to Vancouver Island after she graduated the Northwest Academy.  The song that I shuffled up is off her 2010 album, “When The Bird Became The Book” and is called “Simple Song”.  This is the only video that comes up and is off her YouTube channel.  Very good video, homemade and all.  Lori and I have spent a lot time listening to this album and her first one titled “Sunseed”.  Like her a lot, great light, well written music.

Song Of The Day didn’t have to go far for this one.  Tegan and Sara formed right here in Calgary back in 1995 and have had major success with their indie style music.  This song, “I Was a Fool” is from their latest album “Heartthrob”, which was released earlier this year.  I have chosen a live performance for you to enjoy.  An absolutely terrific tune.
