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 end of March edition of the Wild 10 Countdown has Gold & Youth on the top spot. As mentioned on the audio that it’s been on the current listening rotation. It’s still an addicting track full of 80s new wave and electronica being blended.

Lauren is releasing her new EP, On Personhood on April 2nd and the new track by Maestro Fresh Wes was released several weeks ago and will be on his upcoming album, Orchestrated Noise.
