Happy New Year everyone!
Hope everyone is having a great night ringing in 2013.
In case you missed it, I had my radio show on CHUO FM today on New Year’s Eve.
I had a Matias of Ottawa Showbox be my special guest on the show.
There are two phone interviews with Alaska of Yamantaka // Sonic Titan and Jonas Bonnetta of Evening Hymns.
Did my countdown of the Top 12 Canadian albums of 2012. (Check Top 12 on here).

Is it early?!!
It’s that time of the year where everyone compiles their best of 2012 list.
I do have my best of albums (Canadian and Non-Canadian) but it’s still in a work in progress.
For now I decided to make my list of the best live shows I’ve been to in 2012.
Since it’s 2012, why not make it a Top 12.
There will be some of the shows that didn’t take place in Ottawa but was simply “WOW!” when I happened to catch that show.
So here is my top 12 shows of 2012.
The first time I noticed Evening Hymns was in November 27, 2009.
Popped in Spirit Guides and was blown away with the lyrics and music.
Mostly with the songs Lanterns, Dead Deer and Cedar.
After that I have a profound sense to Jonas’s music as Evening Hymns.
After delays and being held-back(?), Spectral Dusk which is the follow up to Spirit Guides sees the light of day.
The album drops on August 21, 2012 on Shuffling Feet Records.
Guessing the video is too risque to be shown on Youtube.
Great having people on Facebook with the newsfeed on the video.
Today was the release of the music video for Evening Hymn‘s Dead Deer.
Off from the 2009 album “Spirit Guides” (Review on the album).
Don’t forget the song was #13 in my Best of 2010: Singles list.
Still one of my favorites when listening.
Which is kind of bizarre that the video is out now in 2011 since Jonas mentioned in a recent Ottawa show that he is going to make a second album.
More like the video is taken the page off from Sigur Ros’s music video Gobbledigook.
Maybe it might strike a debate whenever this music video is consider art or not art.
It is beautifully shot and nice how the smoke is carefully placed on the certain body parts.
Check out the video.
