We Like Canadian Music
There’s an eerie chill in Trinity Bellwoods Park. While the occasional passerby still roams aimlessly within the dirt pathways, green grassy noles remain vacant where hipsters flood en masse to recline in their cuffed skinny jeans, ironic grunge and deck shoes sipping nonchalantly on their Tetra-pack wine. I live among the hipsters and when they flock from their natural habitat, my spider tingles warn me something is afoot (similar to birds swooping low in the sky warning of an impending storm). I googled city events this weekend to discover there is an Arcade Fire concert on the Toronto Island. Alas, that is where they will be. I feel better knowing they will be back next weekend.
In celebration of my fine sleuth work, here are some domestically made indie rock & pop songs to add to your summer playlist.
- Arcade Fire – No Cars Go, Rococo
- City & Colour – Waiting…
- Broken Social Scene – Forced to Love, Romance to the Grave
- Metric – Collect Call
- Kaskade f. Dragonette - Fire Inside Your New Shoes
