As April comes to an end and a co-host leaving (read the main blog), Born Ruffians takes the top spot on the Wild 1o. Birthmarks was released the previous week and it has been getting plays on shows and activity on social media and blogs. The only new entry for this week is Said The Whale as they released a track from their upcoming EP called I Love You.
Got to give a shout out to The Kostanzas from Toronto. They’re an up and coming rock band, so check them. I didn’t expect my departing co-host mentioned the lead singer being on The Strombo Show.
After the top 10, Candice and myself picked out a bunch of new tracks from the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, MGMT and The National as there’s hype and excitement of new materials from these bands.
Here’s the top 10 and the playlist for the podcast.

1. Cold Pop – Born Ruffians
2. New Summer – Young Galaxy
3. Story of the Flood – Chris Ho
4. Blame Fiction – The Belle Game
5. Did Everything I Could – Maylee Todd
6. Destroy – In-Flight Safety
7. Love Your Money – The Kostanzas
8. Jewel – Gold & Youth
9. I Love You – Said The Whale (New entry)
10. Baptism – We Are The City

Chris Ho takes the number one spot on the Wild 10 Countdown for this week. The reason for it has been that a particular radio show has been playing his song, Story of the Flood. Myself and co-host, Candice has been hooked on his music. City of Dust was released in January and some of his songs have been getting plays.
The new entries for this week’s countdown are Grounders and The Belle Game. Ritual Tradition Habit by The Belle Game is now released and the band got featured on Rolling Stone. Good on the band in getting some exposure.
Young Galaxy was number one last week on the countdown as their new album, Ultramarine just got released this week.
Here’s the top 10 and other songs played on the podcast;

1. Story of the Flood – Chris Ho
2. Home – Austra
3. Destroy – In-Flight Safety
4. New Summer – Young Galaxy
5. River – The Belle Game (New entry)
6. Baby’s Got It – Maylee Todd
7. Jewel – Gold and Youth
8. Baptism – We Are The City

The Wild 10 Countdown for April 10, 2013

This week’s countdown has five new entries. The most for debuts on the countdown in quite awhile. We have the likes of In-Flight Safety, Maylee Todd and We Are The City, while having newcomers, Chris Ho and The Kostanzas.
The reason for The Kostanzas in the countdown as they were on The Strombo Show a few weeks back and it’s fitting to give this up and coming rock band from Toronto some support.
Chris Ho’s album, City of Dust was released in January. The reason he’s on the top 10 as he’s nominated in two categories for Vancouver Island Music Awards and getting airplays on some radio shows.
The number one spot for this week goes to Young Galaxy as their album, Ultramarine will be out in a few week. The band released the single to New Summer and it has a remixed track by Doldrums. The remixed track is used as the number one track for this week.
Without further ado, here’s the top 10 and other songs played on the April 10 podcast for WildWorks.

1. New Summer (Doldrums Remix) – Young Galaxy
2. Home – Austra
3. Jewel – Gold & Youth
4. Anchor Down – Gianna Lauren
