Thanks for the recommendations...
I gave a listen to some and AA Bondy stands out the most. BoH, not so much but I always give them a few listen before judgement is passed (or the audio hard on kicks in or not ). Bon Iver ain't bad either.
I knew I heard Fleet Foxes somewhere. Good stuff!
I'm a big fan of an internet radio station called Radio Paradise, out of California. It's always been available to iTunes listeners (and Mac Gurus!) Listener supported it plays an amazing eclectic playlist http://www.radioparadise.com/index.php
Give it a go, some good shyte for sure.
Has fatherhood mellowed the old man or is it working organically with the wood?
I have started to appreciate Mark Oliver Everett E! and The Eels a lot more and have picked up a few of their albums. They'll soon be in town and I got tix. One thing about this town is the music scene, whether independent, local or big it attracts all kinds. North X NorthEast was amazing. Saw Fucked Up perform their new punk opera.
Introducing The Procrastinators (kids band name) to as much small venue as I can to counteract his affair with everything The Edge...ahhhh was I that narrow minded as a youth? No, I was of the lucky ones in the seventies with a bro 6 years older that, while my friends had all the Kiss albums, he got me into Zeppelin, Stones, Aerosmith, The Who, Floyd, Bowie...
Can't say my tastes mellowed much, love everything except the sweetest of pop and new cuntry...

Her name is Tove Styrke and she was on Swedish Idol when she was 16. Oddly she came in third, but I doubt anyone remembers who the first and second place people were....
Here's a clip from when she was on that show:

Song from the '70s by Ted Gärdestad. The lyrics begin "the sky is an innocent blue, like eyes when the children are small, that rain drops keep falling like tears from above, is not the stars' fault, darling, I know how it feels, when the bridge to what's safe has been burnt, and even though time has us cornered right now, the sky is an innocent blue."

Our music exports bring in more dough than our car exports though, which I guess is pretty good.
But there's an awful lot of Canadian music going around too.

I love John Doe. I could forgive him anything. X is an all time fave. Never cared too much about the Williams fam, Alejandro's brother had a pretty killer band, and the Blasters always seemed really boring and borderline rockabilly to me.
