About a half an hour before my interview with Edmonton indie pop singer-songwriter Calvin Love, I got a text. Calvin needed a hook up. (Later, he’d confide that this was his first time asking an interviewer for some assistance.)
Which song did Calvin write while on the toilet? How does he escape the everyday routine? Which Calvin Love song is a love story involving a robot? And most importantly: Did I hook Calvin up? You’ll have to listen to find out!
Tracks played on the show…
1) Calvin Love, Super Future (2015) “I Wanna Know” (mp3)
2) Calvin Love, Super Future (2015) “Automaton”
3) Calvin Love, Super Future (2015) “Daydream”
4) Calvin Love, New Radar (2012) “Treasure Hunters” (partial/background) (mp3)
5) Calvin Love, Super Future (2015) “Calls From Jupiter”

I truly think that this year will be a big one for Vancouver and it’s music scene including all of the artists we’ve got coming out recently. HRVY from Vancouver put out a great house remix to Bear Mountain’s “Congo” 5 months ago, it was a well produced track that really embraced the original songs style while still giving us a nice different feel to this now house jam. With a new year ahead of us he puts out one hell of a remix for Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With You“, the track is absolutely great pitching down the originally poppy song to a slow crisp and chopping up the vocals just right so you can still sing along to this 1987 classic. The lo-fi ambient R&B vibe this track has truly has me excited to hear more from this young up and comer. Stream or download the track below!

Robb Bank$ got a bit of attention with his first mixtape “Calendars” but it doesn’t seem this FLA resident is quite satisfied. In the past month Bank$ has released three tracks that really show how good this cat can be, “Practice” featuring Sir Michael Rocks & “All The Way Live” produced by Spaceghostpurrp are two stand out tracks that will be featured in his next project. Keep an eye on this cat, he will be making more than just noise soon.

Official remixes for local LA band The Peach Kings. The Peach Kings draw their sound and inspiration from the smokey smooth crackle of blues, folk, and soul vinyls as well as the hypodermic tones synthesized in various beat laboratories across the globe. In By Your Side, Los Angeles local producers OKIDOG spun Texas born Paige Woods’ soulful vocals into an intricate pitch-shifted and poly-rhythmic web of upbeat future garage. With Fisherman OKIDOG created a bass rattling, soul clapping, timeless pop song.

They’re three like minds, 20 years old. Born of the stacked suburban boxes of Southern California to write songs of the latter generation, they’ve journeyed.
They were weaned on Westerberg. They danced with Dylan. They spent the sleepless teen years staring at their eyelids, Al Green singing them sweetly in love. And for nearly half a decade they’ve been forcing Dirty Projectors, Sonic Youth and The White Stripes into their hold. Enjoy their single Flashing Vents… go on, take it; it’s yours.
