Girth Radio Presents…

I recently attended Wayhome Music Festival at Burl’s Creek in Oro-Medonte, Ontario. After the first day, my fellow Wayhomies and I reflected on how almost all of the acts that we had chosen to see that day had been predominantly female. We had seen Aluna George, Metric, Chvrches (Watched LCD Soundsystem from the Ferris wheel) Marian Hill, and Matt & Kim. The rest of the weekend continued to impress us with amazing females artists.

NewMusic Ten Playlist #2

Sadly this week’s NewMusic Ten playlist starts on a sombre yet beautiful note. As many of you know and are still processing Paul Walker passed onto the next life on November 30. Man, I dig those Fast and Furious movies.

Paul’s friend, the talented RZA penned this soulful tune, Destiny Bends in immediate reaction to Paul’s death. It’s raw and visceral and real…it’s rare to encounter music like that anymore s’why I included it.

Mercifully after that the playlist picks up with all kinds of sonic delightfulness. Dance along to Australia’s Skipping Girl Vinegar and Carousel’s Into the Night. And is it me or does Heart Attack the hauntingly second track stand in a warm New Order shadow?

Here we go: NewMusic Ten Playlist #2!
