Pick of the Week: Tie between Endangered Ape’s (and company…) Holiday track “Last Shitmas” (recorded with many very very good friends, a pint of grown-up egg nog and around a hand held voice recorder with real live sleigh bells. E Ape, you are holiday spirit personified. xo) and Rah Rah’s “Tentacles” (which is a song I cannot get sick of, no matter how hard I try.)

Also, check out CBC Radio 3’s music news. A good source for a smattering of interesting things. That is, if you haven’t already heard about it on Twitter.

CBC brand spankin’ new New Music Canada bands announced today as well new NMC videos! Double post-Halloween indie music whammy.

I love the Dee pick, very well done CBC.

To jump on this music video train, my music video pick would have to go to Winnipeg band, Quinzy and their video for the track The Decemberwolf directed by David Skene (a yet to be known but very talented Winnipeg film maker). This track comes complete with sugary sweet harmony parts and the hand clap breakdowns that have my heart all a flutter to begin with and this video only lives up to Quincey’s upbeat pop sound.

CBC Radio 3’s brand new podcast features none other that the upcoming Sled Island Festival held in my home town of Calgary AB. I plan on soaking up enough music Friday and Saturday to make my inner music nerd puke. It’s going to be so awesome.

Here is the link to the podcast….it is chock full of local darlings from Calgary and the surronding area. Besides being able to see Mogwai and Yo La Tengo, Lethbridge’s own Endangered Ape will be rockin’ the collective house’s of Sled Island fans. Can’t wait ’till Sled Island? Need a preview? Well, tonight at The Slice, Endangered Ape, The Void, Hazard Lights and The Ostrich are all rockin’ out H Core. Need more? Well, then! Tuesday night in Lethbridge at The Knights of Columbus hall (125 – 13th St N) you can see DD/MM/YYYY, Mt. Royal, Endangered Ape, Atrophy Manuscript and Women. Be sure to check both shows….
