Good morning! This week, instead of sharing images, I’m sharing albums.
Kicking it off with Dan Mangan’s “Nice, Nice, Very Nice” – the kind of album that keeps your jeans dry. Lots of great acoustic guitar, amazing vocals, evocative lyrics. My favourite song is “Basket”, but they’re all great.
I saw Dan Mangan perform live back in 2010 or so. Really great energy, and that’s how I was introduced to Aiden Knight, the opener. Check him out too, a voice that will make you cry.
Good morning! Today's album is "Islands Disappear" by Said the Whale.
This album was my introduction to west cost Canadian indie rock, and what an introduction it was! Lots of stories are embedded in these lyrics – the album taught me that even if I've got a map, I need to know where I'm going. Favourite song: A Cold Night Close to the End.
Good morning! Today’s album is “Into Lake Griffy” by Good Luck. A bit more punk than usual, but optimistic. Nothing lifts me up like this album.
My friend introduced me to this album and the way he explains it, the band formed out of a random, extreme dip in musical entropy. Boltzmann Brain-style. They made this album and then dissipated back into the aether.
Favourite song is “Bringing Them Back to Life”, check it out.
Good morning! Today’s album is “Fantasies” by Metric.
I never really followed music/bands until Metric, and this was the first time an album came out that really changed the musical direction of one of my favs. Really raw sound, with Emily Haines amazing voice 😍 Metric would lean further into the electronic music angle in subsequent albums.
Lots of stories in these songs, which I love, but also a kind of pop feel. Favourite song: “Gimme Sympathy”
Good morning! Today’s album is “Swooner” by The Zolas. I liked their earlier albums too, but this one leans hard into an electronic vibe you can dance to. I’ve been listening to this when I run 🏃
Favourite song is “Freida on the Mountain”, because it features *heavy* sampling of the Star Trek: TNG transporter sound effect ✨
Good morning! Today's album is "Forcefield" by Tokyo Police Club
I know what you're thinking – what about Champ? What about Elephant Shell? And to that I say: all Tokyo Police Club albums are
Plus the first song "Argentina (Parts I, II, III)" absolutely bangs, check it out, it's my favourite.
Good morning! Today is the last day I share albums each morning. And it shouldn't surprise anyone that I'm ending with The Weakerthans' final album, the live recording of their final concert.
The Weakerthans, and John K Samson, mean a lot to me. Their songs helped me when I was in a bad place, and learning to play those songs helped me leave. Their final album is band at its peak - favourite song is Wellington's Wednesdays, and let me tell you why...
This song was near the end of their set. Remember, they're recording this concert for an album. Fans have travelled from all over to see them play.
So during a lull in the song, John K Samson goes to chat with the audience. Turns out one person travelled from Mexico to Winnipeg, and JKS hands this stranger his guitar and invites him to play a guitar solo.
On their final concert. On their live album. He says "it'll be okay, it's in the key of E", hands him a pick, and jumps down into the crowd to watch.
And the guy absolutely _nails_ this guitar solo. Stunning work. On the DVD, after the song, John K Samson says "that's about a hundred times better than I would have done"
And I'm a huge fan of JKS, but, yeah. He's right. It was.
When the stakes were super-high, JKS took a risk to trust a stranger. And together, they created something better than either of them could have made alone. And I think that's an important lesson 💜
Good morning! [cw ec]
Can’t tell you how many memes I’ve saved up while posting albums last week.
Well, I can. It’s six. Six memes.
good mooooorning! [cw duck ec]
good morning 🤯 [cw ec]

@ashfurrow I finished my Apollo Lander this morning— it was suuuuuper satisfying. There are a lot of pieces that are there just to entertain during the build, because they can’t be seen when finished. I heartily recommend.
(I have the ISS in reserve, for when I need a pick me up later in the year...)
@ashfurrow this is cool as heck, I am so glad you shared
@ashfurrow I dream about buying a LEGO set but I don't know which one. I feel like it needs to be fairly complicated to occupy me
@Gargron complicated is nice – the ISS took a few sessions, but the build instructions are designed to accommodate that.
@ashfurrow adults are still allowed to love LEGO too, which is why I have a room full of it.
@ashfurrow I've got some Mindstorms. 👍
@ashfurrow I have the Apollo, a Sopwith Camel and an old Technic 8860 from when I was a kid. 😎
@ashfurrow we already have a 🤳 emoji
so it's a start
@ashfurrow good cat
@ashfurrow 🎶 I'm too sexy for my cat, too sexy for my cat, poor pussy, poor pussy cat. 🎶
@ashfurrow it looks cute, dangerously cute… or perhaps just dangerous
@ashfurrow that's fucked, mate.
@ashfurrow Well, that accounts for the glow.
@ashfurrow looks alot like Babylon 5
