Song of the Month: Metric, London Halflife

Some people find winter depressing, but for me, spring is when my mood tends to really bottom out. The warmer weather makes my insomnia even worse, and the rain and the gloom wear me down.

This in turn makes me turn to gloomy music. Well, slightly more than usual, anyway. And few do that better than Metric.

London Halflife is one of my all-time favourites from them, or really any band. It’s one of only two songs I’ve ever listened to on repeat (the other being Live It Out, also by Metric).

Songs of the Month: Monowhales and JJ Wilde

I’ve neglected my blog so much lately I didn’t even do a Song of the Month for February. To make up for that, I’ll be posting two for March, both local talent.

First we have Toronto’s own Monowhales, whom I’ve featured before, with Out With the Old:

Second, we head to Kitchener with JJ Wilde’s Mercy:

Honestly, with how much JJ Wilde’s been blowing up (at least in my neck of the woods), I’m not sure if she needs the help, but with a voice like that, she certainly deserves the recognition.
