Washed Out - "Amor Fati"

If you could bottle euphoria, and then take that bottle and pour it all over your heart, you'd have "Amor Fati," the latest greatness from Washed Out.

Washed Out, "Amor Fati" by The FADER

Go 'like' Washed Out on Facebook and then hear the stream of Within and Without over at NPR.

Ariel Pink - Fright Night (Nevermore) [Dam-Funk remix]

Dam-Funk funks with Ariel Pink.

Dude played it last night at the Pyramid as part of the Jazz Winnipeg festival and absolutely crushed an already overwhelmed audience.

National Parks Project - National Parks Project

National park system + centennial + artists = beautiful, reflective music that makes you long for the great outdoors.

National Parks Project - Bruce Beckons from Ryan J. Noth on Vimeo.

Proceeds from the National Parks Project album go to the Nature Conservancy of Canada.

Album is streaming here.

On a related note, the Globe & Mail Travel section has been visiting all of Canada's national parks, and a little over a week ago they wrote about Riding Mountain, Manitoba's own, and my summer home for two decades.

Bon Iver - "Beth/Rest"

Bruce Hornsby - the Range + the kitchen sink = "Beth/Rest"

[Still not entirely sure of this song, but the album has grown on me.]
