Radio Hootenanny Faves of 2015

 

Radio Hootenanny Faves of 2015

we aren’t BIG on “top whatever # ” lists OR ranking things in order of preference. how can you say one is better than the other? especially when dealing with differing musical genres. how can you compare an apple to a pizza? a steak to a piece of bread? chocolate cake to a carrot?

so with that in mind, here are 10 releases that got some Radio Hootenanny airtime in 2015. these never left our near vicinity during our daily lives and waking moments. each one essential in our books. enjoy at your leisure!

♫ Who Cares? – Don’t You(,) Mean People?

https://dontyoumeanpeople.bandcamp.com/

instrumentals that warp the time space continuum when you need it

♫ The Anachronist’s Cookbook – Will Tun and the Wasters 

https://willtunandthewasters1.bandcamp.com/album/the-anachronists-cookbook

a never ending thoughtful party that never fails to get us off our romp & change our mood

♫ Loose Ends – Bet Smith featuring The Currie Brothers

https://betsmith.bandcamp.com/album/loose-ends

we’ve had every single song on this stuck in our head at one point in time or another

♫ Volume vs Voice – Chris Page

https://chrispage.bandcamp.com/album/volume-vs-voice

no matter what the mood, this always fits. you can cook to it, have morning coffee with it, prep to go out to party with it, drive …

♫ The New Way Out – The Doped Up Dollies

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-new-way-out/id1034959393

https://soundcloud.com/the-doped-up-dollies

DANGER: the beauty here is that this is highly addicitve with contagious lyrics and top notch grooves without being overly complicated

♫ Faded Gloryville – Lindi Ortega

http://lindiortega.ca/

her voice can make the hair on our neck stand up, blow us away and then she gets us to do a jig

♫ The Agent Intellect – Protomartyr

https://protomartyr.bandcamp.com/album/the-agent-intellect

from the first listen, it was WOW, we could listen to this all day. and so we did. nuff said

♫ Sore – Dilly Dally

https://buzzrecordsto.bandcamp.com/album/sore-lp

angst driven rock in a familiar yet new way = an essential ingredient to make every day perfect

♫ Shadow of the Sun – Moon Duo

https://moonduo.bandcamp.com/

a thoroughly enjoyable ride with HUGE peaks and sonic expanses

♫ Disco EP – Windigo

https://windigo.bandcamp.com/album/the-disco-ep

unpretentious noodlin’ good times

Ska Party Faves of 2015

NFRN7295
♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫♫
what got our heart racing? our feet jumping? kept us grooving in the darkest moments?  made us bop til we dropped?
here’s our SKA PARTY top 5 FAVES of 2015!



♫ Music Is The Girl I Love by Gentleman’s Dub Club
https://gentlemansdubclub.bandcamp.com/track/music-is-the-girl-i-love

this song is a monster!  an anthem!  kept us company on all those days and nights while on tour and on the road to gigs each and every spare and waking moment. why do we play sooooo much? this tune is number 1 with a bullet. no need to explain any more. just listen and enjoy & kudos to the GDC for treating us to it.  you can now pick up the entire album at: www.gentlemansdubclub.com

 

this was also a road favourite. listened to it everyday while on tour. so inspiring and never boring. never dull. its just simple, honest, earthy ska and reggae vibes from start to finish. its a ska/reggae mixed tape all in one. if you could only buy one ska release this year, this is it.

♫ My Favourite Heart To Break by The Fabulous Lolo Meets King Kong Girio
http://kingkonggirio.bandcamp.com/album/my-favourite-heart-to-break-2
King Kong Girio brings together some of the best musicians in the Canadian ska scene to break our musical hearts with this solid sonic treat. sometimes chilling, sometimes hot, sometimes high and sometimes low. its an emotional roller coaster ride that you will want to take again and again.

♫ Elephant Riddim by St. Petersburg Ska-Jazz Review
https://spbsjr.bandcamp.com/album/elephant-riddim
slick and sick. the Review brings class, style and endless energy to the ska-jazz world that floors the listener while you pick it up on the dancefloor. we fell in love with this from the very first listen. simply fantastic!

♫ A Big Band Tribute To The Skatalites Volume II by Western Standard Time Ska Orchestra
https://westernstandardtimeskaorchestra.bandcamp.com/album/a-big-band-tribute-to-the-skatalites-volume-ii
big band ska seldom gets done AND gets the attention to detail that WSTSO brings to the table. an all star lineup and an all star setlist. eat it up and let your ears fill up on the BIG sound that WOWS.
