X Marks The Spot on Arts & Crafts – S08E42

A&C - X

On this week’s radio show, there were several new music being played and one album got released this week happens to be Arts & Crafts: X. The album consists of collaborations from bands and artists from the Arts & Crafts lineup. In a way, I decided to play some of the tracks before Ryan’s show, Whatever’s Cool With Me (also on CKCU-FM).
Played on the show were Anamanaguchi, Camera Obscura, Braids and Geneva. A mix of 8-bit/electronic to alternative to soul/R&B to indie rock. It’s a variety mix of great music for this week.
Sad news in the Ottawa music scene. The drummer of The Love Machine‘s father passed away on May 25th. I was searching on Facebook for info as I don’t have any of the members on Facebook. I decided to play Love Is On Your Side from their 2010 album, Sweater Weather.
