Dear Robin Short

I have to give you credit for having a set of balls because it’s a very sticky situation to crap on Newfoundland and Labrador. We come out with pitchforks and torches a blazing. I don’t have a tendency to generalize any group of people, but I gotta say we are the most defensive province in the country. Reasonably so, because since confederation there has been an arrogance that steamed over us from the mainland. A sense of superiority from the upper echelons who reminded us of our lack of money and were backed by a federal government who has a tendency to forget we even exist and a country that believes we lack intelligence and education. It’s been a tough…

Record Store Day 2017

in Music by
Record Store Day

It’s been about seven years since I first heard of Record Store Day and even then, I didn’t know too much about it other than the fact that my favorite band in the entire galaxy U2, was releasing a limited edition (of only five thousand to be exact) EPs on vinyl for Record Store Day’s “Back To Black Friday” initiative. At the time, I didn’t even own a record player, but I contacted our local record store, Fred’s and asked if they were getting any copies of this collectible item in.

For the longest time I figured my adoration for The Analog Age came from my deep love for the three band mates. They each held a special place in my heart completely outside of their musical talents and my pride was bursting every time they went on stage. Like a mom in the corner cheerleading like a boss. “Those are my boys up there; they are going to be famous some day! You’ll see, you’ll all see!”   Well in a sense, my motherly instincts were right. In September, The Analog Age posted their first video for “No Sleep” and it went NL Viral. With 12K views and 112 Shares, these boys have some recognizable talent. During this tidal wave…

You and Your Friends Should Buy This

in Music by

“Your Friends Don’t Buy it at All” is It Could be Franky’s debut album, a project from Land of the Lake’s member Danielle Hamel. As a huge fan of hers, I can sense some similarities in the lyrics between Hamel’s solo and duo acts.
