The fifth annual Ottawa Rock Lottery 2013 took place at Mavericks on May 18th.
In case you don’t know, here is a blurb on the event. 25 musicians from all different genres and bands. 5 bands determined by randomly pulling names out of a very stylish hat. 24 hrs to create a 20 – 30 minute set of all original music. 1 night only. Proceeds went to local charity organization The Ottawa Food Bank.
This being in it’s fifth year.
I have to say it was the best Rock Lotto in Ottawa’s music scene.
The five bands were:
• But I Don’t Want To Be A Pirate
• Black Usher
• Slow Dance Chubbies
• Nicholas Cage in Con Air Read more »
Another posting on this Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories doesn’t drop until May 21st.
The streaming and possible leak has got people talking about the long awaited album.
Here is a track that I really like.
It’s the beginning track on the album.
Title says it all and has that disco-y rock sound to it.
Anyways have a listen Give Life Back to Music.
I can’t get enough of UK’s Electropop-dance and Garage duo/brothers Disclosure.
Just a few hours ago, Baauer just dropped a crazy remix of their songYou & Me featuring Eliza Doolittle!
All I can say is WOW!!
Have a listen to the remix.
Who would have thought Dirty Projectors could get into EDM.
Anyways today (May 14th) is the release of “The Socialites” Remixes EP which you can get on iTunes.
So get your dancing shoes on to these remixes.
I played the Joe Goddard remix on my radio show on April 8th.
Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories doesn’t drop until May 21st.
With the free streaming on iTunes and early leaks, who couldn’t resist on listening to the long awaited album.
I think this track has gotten people talking.
It is their track Instant Crush which features Julian Casablancas of The Strokes.
Instant Crush reminds me of their Discovery’s Something About Us with it’s slow mellow disco-y dance pop track.
Anyways have a listen Instant Crush.
Previously posted the radio edit version of Daft Punk‘s Get Lucky.
Finally here is the Random Access Memories version of Get Lucky.
It’s longer and somewhat slower.
The song clocks in at around 6 minutes
Anyways have a listen to the album version of Get Lucky.
