I just went with my dear mother to Grooves ( local CD store: support small businesses man!) and we spent 100$ in gift cards we'd been saving... and must admit some of my moms choices weren't bad... at all :P
There was loads of great music from everywhere , but we ended up with a rising Montreal band called Karkwa: Les Chemins De Verre, Sigur Ros ( really amazing band from iceland, pictured there and their album cover), Handsome Dan &Gallmaufry, SparkleHorse ( RIP) featuring all kinds of artists including Iggy Pop! on Dark Night of the Soul, Metric, grow up and blow away, Stars, and ( dadadada drum role) Death From Above 1979: You're a woman, Im a MACHINE XD
Well, going to bed tonight listening to all this great shit. Iv already listened to most of the tracks, but repeats are cool :)
