3am Playlist #40 - Khatsahlano 2016 Preview

Two more sleeps until Khatsahlano!
Everyone do the opposite of a rain dance. How about a: warm-but-overcast-day dance because every year it seems to be amazingly sunny and hot, but at this point I'll take a happy medium between the two!

In either case, there is going to be some amazing live music, from some local and Canadian musicians, and we've got a bit of a preview in today's playlist above.

The schedule is below, so give it a look and make some hard decisions because Burrard and Macdonald are far apart and there are awesome musicians at either end!

hey you, listen to these!

Yup, it's another "songs of the indeterminate time period", with a trio of new and nifty songs you should check out.

  We Are The City - Morning Song by killbeat music
Oh man! I have seen this song live so many times, and I am glad it finally exists in physical (or digital) form. From We Are The City's upcoming 7", it's "Morning Song". It'll be paired with "Mourning Song" (see what they did there?) and the 7" will be released in September on Adventure Boys Club.

  Go To Me - Jordan Klassen by JordanKlassen
While I have heard the name Jordan Klassen fairly frequently, I have to admit I hadn't heard much (or any) of his music. Until the other day with the release of his new single "Go To Me". It starts soft and builds to a grand, and pretty damn catchy climax. It's from Repentance, due out in November.

Since I first caught his disease six years ago, I've had a soft spot for Aussie pop-rocker Ben Lee. His newest album, Deeper Into Dream (his eighth solo album!) was produced at his home studio and the first single, "Get Used To It" is pretty much as poppy as you would expect it to be, but like a lot of Lee's music, the lyrics might not quite as upbeat as the music.
