No regular entry from my main blog for the time being. It’s the 2nd week of 2011 and so far, there were a lot of 2011 songs on the Wild 10 Countdown. This week’s countdown seemed to have a lot of bands from or now residing in Montreal. Of the bands from Montreals, they are The Luyas, Braids, Arcade Fire, Chromeo and Young Galaxy.
The remaining 2010 songs still on the countdown were Arcade Fire, Rebekah Higgs, and Jim Bryson & The Weakerthans.
For the time being, I am not going to list the top 10 as it’s already posted on the CKCU-FM playlist from the website. To check the playlist, the link is here.
Aside from the new number one for the January 12th edition, the interview with Rebekah Higgs was also aired on the radio show. It’s basically the “first” interview segment for 2011. She’s been getting some buzz on the music website as one of the songs from her Little Voice EP is available as free download. If you like her music, check her Bandcamp site at http://rebekahhiggs.bandcamp.com/.
As usual, I was joined by new co-host, Lauren. She’s still making a great effort at enjoying the new Canadian songs on the countdown and throughout the show.
