A great morning, beautiful sunrise, more Chinook clouds and reasonably warm. A great day in Calgary. Looking forward to a great long weekend, off tomorrow, making Friday the 13th a lucky day for me. Having said that, I doubt here will be a songbook tomorrow, closed due to sleep.
Today’s tune is called “Emily” by San Fermin. San Fermin is a pop band from Brooklyn, NY. The cut i from their soon to be released album “Jackrabbit”. They have been termed as baroque, but I prefer electronics spiced with some opera. They get the most out of their 8 piece group, giving rich, layered composition with soothing vocals.
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. If you want to hear more, or delve a bit deeper into the band, hit the links below the video.

Today’s mailbag features a Canadian indie pop punk band, Bordeen. The group is from Newmarket, Ontario and consists of 2 bothers and a sister, Ryan, Daniel and Brianna Bordhin. Very pleasant sound, very much like a lot of music dominating Canadian airwaves. Take some Lumineers, toss in a dash of Walk Off The Earth, and toss in some Hey Rosetta and you have the sound pretty much down pat. The tune is titled “Broken Bones” and is off their February 2013 EP, “Bordeen”. If you like what you hear, hit the links provided.

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.

Today we feature the release of “Martel” by Jay Malinowski & the Deadcoast. Officianados of Canadian music would recognize Jay as the voice of reggae band Bedouin Soundclash, a staple of our airwaves for years. I have chosen to put up a video of Patience Phipps from the album, live at CBC3. Good song, receiving ample airplay.
