Tune of the Tuesday: “Pretty Pimpin” – Kurt Vile

Prior to a Kim Churchill show, the sound person was playing so many tracks from Kurt Vile’s 2015 album that after shazamming them all, I had to buy the whole album. This track is particularly catchy.

Tune of the Tuesday: “Find You” – Nick Jonas

I bought this song off of iTunes not really knowing who the song was by. It was the intro of sparse guitar chords that drew me in. To have the song evolve into a melodic dance rhythm with the guitar tying everything together, it’s a song that is hard to get out of one’s mind once you’ve heard it a few times. Such as it is for me, in any case. I can’t say that I know all the lyrics per se, but I’ve now come to associate those particular guitar chords played at that specific tempo as an introduction to this song.

Throwback Track Thursday: “Companion – Lay Me Down” – Wide Mouth Mason

Weird as it may seem, I’m a fan of music I can not only listen to but also physically own. There are variations to how I choose to own music, with my favourite of favourites often being artists I have music on multiple media. Wide Mouth Mason is one such artist. I love their entire catalogue as a longtime fan of their work, but this song, this song just seems to bring me the sun sonically on a rather dreary cold winter day. The music video’s vibe of laid back grooves match the repeating guitar chords that ties this song to my musical heart.
