The Wild 10 Countdown for July 10, 2013

Wild 10 July 10th Vinyl

This week’s countdown finally has Louise Burns on the top spot. Her second album, The Midnight Mass got released on Tuesday through music stores and digital downloads. The style in the new album has more an 80s style and it’s worth listening to. The music video to Emeralds Shatter got released.
The only new entry on this week’s top 10 is from Shad & Skratch Bastid’s EP, The Spring Up. The track chosen was Homie, which features Cadence Weapon.
On the radio show itself, it was a best of interview segment by Data Romance. Originally aired in October (2012), you can watch the interview below. As usual, you can listen to the audio from below the top 10.
There were new music from Body Language and ASTR. There were a couple of flood songs as Toronto experienced heavy rain and power outages. You can check the playlist from the live show over at this link.
Here’s the top 10 list for July 10th

The Wild 10 Countdown for July 3, 2013

Orchestrated Noise - Maestro Fresh Wes

It’s a brand new month and we’re half-way through 2013. Since it’s the post-Canada Day edition of the Wild 10 Countdown and Summer radio show, it’s still fitting for Maestro Fresh Wes to take the top spot for another week. Quite ironic to have Black Trudeau be number one for this week after celebrating Canada’s 146th birthday. The only new entry on the countdown is Grand Analog as the band will be releasing a new album in August.

As the regular blog is on a Summer break, the radio show will be recapped here. As mentioned before that the radio show is on a Summer edition and keeping me company for part of the Summer is Katarina, host of The Cloud on CKCU-FM. This week’s show had a wrap up to The Community Cup.

The playlist from the live show can be seen over at this link. The audio will be posted below.
Here’s the top 10 for July 3, 2013;

The Wild 10 Countdown for June 26, 2013

Orchestrated Noise - Maestro Fresh Wes

To end off June and to begin Summer, Maestro Fresh Wes takes the top spot to end the month as he released his new album in thirteen years. That’s right! Orchestrated Noise got released this week and there’s been a lot of buzz to the Godfather of Canadian Hip-Hop. The 18 track album has collaborations from the likes of Classified, Chuck D, The Trews, Sam Roberts and opera singer, Measha Bruggergosman. One of the top hits from the album is considered to be catchy and sampled from the great Canadian, Blue Rodeo. It’s Reach For The Sky, which features Classified and sampling Try by Blue Rodeo. It’s definitely a terrific album and recommended for your Summer listening. Maestro Fresh Wes also released a music video to this song, Black Trudeau.
The song that takes the top spot this week happens to be History Repeated and it features Montreal rocker, Sam Roberts. The reason for picking that song was that Roberts was in Ottawa for the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival and I’m still having a good laugh at this video from CBC Music Presents The Beetle Roadtrip Sessions.
The only new entry this week is Lightning Dust as the band released their new album, Fantasy. It’s out this week.
Here’s the top 10.

1. History Repeated – Maestro Fresh Wes featuring Sam Roberts

2. Emeralds Shatter – Louise Burns

3. Sleep – Austra

4. Chasing The Sunset – Imaginary Cities

5. I Love You – Said The Whale

6. Near Enough – Braids

7. In Enemies – Still Life Still

8. Bottom of the Lake – We Are The City

9. Trasher – Hooded Fang

10. Diamond – Lightning Dust
