I go back to this album at least once a month. This is the one that jumped out at me last night.

Keeping with the Canadian theme, ever since I picked up a 12 string electric, "Heaven's Coming Down" by the Tea Party has been in heavy rotation.  Man I miss seeing them live, something about three pieces, Tea Party, Rush, King's X......

On the blues side, "Blues Deluxe" and "Had to Cry Today" by Joe Bonamassa are also in regular rotation on my drive to and from work (got to love Deerfoot in the morning).

The only known cure in the world for GAS is death.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

I'll post a video for you Curt... Awesome song. Jeff Martin of Tea Party, like Ian Thornley from Big Wreck, is blessed with both a distinctive and excellent voice along with superior guitar skills. Man. I miss Toronto in the 90s.

Yeah, can't wait for the new TP album later this year.  And as much as I respect Ian Thornley's ability, he's got a long way to go to be Jeff.  Hard to believe it's been nine years since new music though.

This one's a gimme, but what the hell. Django.

My luthier introduced me to Joscho and Emmanuel recently. I'm sure you saw my post.

On a Canadian note I've recently discovered The Weakerthans and quite like them. Might be worth checking out if you're into the indie/rock of the north.

On another Canadian note... I've been listening to Boards of Canada's new album recently.

Not many guitars on there, but they have their own unique (and often copied) sound.



Their music is always laidback, but there is always with a slightly sinister undertone IMO.

I was listening to the new Sabbath album now I'm listening to Blues Traveler

I've heard _Trans Canada Highway_ (had to check; had Trans Europe Express flashbacks).

Quite liked it, but I thought there was a definite link back to early Autechre. (Later Autechre, if you're not into it, sounds terminally insane.) _Amber_.

New Sigur Ros. Pumped to go to the Atlanta show in October since I'm out of town the week before for the Nashville gig (surprise Father's Day gift)

But also released on Tuesday was the new one from a great (and fairly unknown) band from Arkansas called Canopy Climbers. Great songs, smart lyrics, and good guys. Album is "Miles"

Stream the whole album here

If you dig it, buy it here

I'm still lovin' the thick, FILTHY fuzz on "10am Automatic" on _Rubber Factory_. That plus the technical ability harnessing that tone.
