The Wild 10 Countdown for October 5, 2011

It’s a new month and a new number one to begin October. There’s been a whole slew of great releases from Canadian artists. This week’s number one is none other than Feist. Metals was dropped on Tuesday and so far, there’s been good response to the album. A big plus was that the countdown was live again on the airwaves for this week only. Due to the fact that I need to do a live phone interview with Casey Mecija of Ohbijou.
There’s no new debuts this week and I was slightly occupied with other things happening in Ottawa.
Here’s the top 10 list.

1. How Come You Never Go There – Feist (First week at #1)

2. Rows of Houses – Dan Mangan (Forgot to mention that he’s The X3 Artist of the Month for October)

3. Niagara – Ohbijou

4. Change The Sheets – Kathleen Edwards

5. If I Get Old – Elliott Brood

6. Time Is Right – Cuff The Duke

7. Gosh, Darn, Damn – Rebekah Higgs

8. Adieu – Coeur De Pirate

9. Shaking Down The Bones – The Darcys

10. I’m On Fire – Whitehorse (It’s a Bruce Springsteen cover)

Another Comment
Since I won’t add it on my regular blog. It’s such a surprise to hear Steve Jobs pass away. Jobs was a great visionary.
