Favourite 10 of 13

2013 was not a particularly musical year for me - a few less concerts, a few less must-haves scratched onto my album shopping list. However despite my slowdown in music listening, I did find that there was no shortage of albums to populate my top ten list. The following favourites are not ranked in any particular order. Rather, they are those ten albums that I found myself returning to again and again.SAVK - Love Letters and Hate MailI bought this album upon hearing one song played on CBC, and…See More

"I've only ever seen the Sadies perform in a folk festival setting. I really must remedy that. I did write about them for a Canadian Bands You Should Know series that I do for the National Music Centre…"

"Dinner jazz, eh? Oh dear that does sound like an unfortunate direction in which to take jazz. It's good to know that we share an opinion on this album, Alan. Thanks for letting me know!"

"An interesting review for ND; especially as you don't appear to 'like' it; but...your feelings mirror my own, having listened to it.     There's resurgence in what used to be known as 'dinner jazz' in the UK…"

Laura Mvula – Sing to the Moon

There has been no shortage of praise among music critics for Laura Mvula's recently released debut album, Sing to the Moon. The classically-trained British soul and jazz singer has scooped up plenty of critical acclaim for her highly stylized gospeldelic sound. Filled with intensely layered doo-wop harmony, time changes and highly unusual compositions, the songs on Sing to the Moon are certainly distinctive, but they can sometimes be a challenging listen.There is no denying the beauty of…See More

Manitoba Hal Brolund - Devil on the Wall

Ukelele-meister Manitoba Hal has wasted no time since his 2012 release Flirting with the Mermaids in dropping another album of curiously infectious music upon the unsuspecting public.

A couple of fine covers of blues standards appear amongst the rollicking original tunes. Manitoba Hal may have set his ukelele…See More

CD Review - Emma Hill "The Black and Wretched Blue"

With the release of The Black and Wretched Blue, Emma Hill finds herself physically back on familiar turf, in her home state of Alaska, but there are some sonic touches on the album that conjure up a distinctly more southerly territory. It's a fitting dichotomy for an album that resonates with wanderlust and longing for home.Hill's honey-smoked voice takes on a soulful growl in many of the numbers, and combined with the horns that periodically kick in to accompany the familiar guitar, banjo and…See More

You're welcome.

I lived outside of Vernon, British Columbia for about 5 years and our backyard was adjacent to a Provincial Park....My own connection to Handsome Dan's CD...:)

Barbara,
The Handsome Dan CD arrived yesterday. Put it on immediately, it played through and I hit repeat. It's exactly how you described it in your opening paragraph. Loved his voice too, very warm and inviting. Thanks
