CANADIAN MUSIC EXPERT – Krista Hurdon – Top 5 Canadian Tracks during Quarantine

Mags reached out to ask me to do a Canadian Music Expert Quarantine guest post. Which kills me because despite her always calling me that, I’m no expert, just a Canadian who loves her music. Like most of us, it’s a huge factor in keeping sane throughout this pandemic. Mags said to go with my Top 5, which is crazy hard to pick. I’m also gonna assume that most people here are American. There’s a tonne (yep, that’s metric) of huge Canadian bands that you guys already know, so why bother with that? I figured I’d go through the vaults for some lesser-knowns.  Well, lesser known south of the border, but to millions of Canadians, these songs are touchstones. In all the isolation, it’s music we go to – whether we want to cry, groove, remember, or just rock out and forget everything.  As the months in lockdown go by, I find more and more I’m going to my comfort tunes – the ones that make me feel happy & safe, or sad & safe, or funky & safe, but always…safe. Like everything’s going to be okay. I hope you fall in love with them, too. And if you don’t – don’t tell me!  I can’t take it right now. Wait, like, a year or something. Here we go! Bedouin Soundclash is a Toronto-based alt rock/reggae/ska band that formed in 2001 and after a nine-year hiatus, they’re still (back?) together.

Heylo Hunkerdowners!  We have something to show you from our Quarantine Diary! When we’re not crying or drinking or eating or calling each other up in the middle of night because time has no meaning…we’ve been busy learning new things, writing new songs, updating my blog, and taking bass lessons (again).  Cool stuff like.  And one thing that we’ve been doing is learning Final Cut Pro. *Ahem – by “we”, I mean KG*.We’ve had 3 shows with Tiffany Lyons fronting the band and we nailed “If We Could Let Go” from our 2nd show at The Bitter End. KG* took the audio and spliced up this little ditty from those shows. The footage is from The Bowery Electric, The Bitter End and Pianos. It’s a message about love and tolerance and coming out of all of this crazy stuff on the better side of life. Remember to be kind to each other and to yourself. Enjoy! See you on the low end! Love,...
