In No Particular Order: November 11, 2016

Alright, let’s keep this short and sweet. I know you want to get started and enjoy all the sweet, new releases from the past week so I won’t drag on too long. ‘Cause no one likes someone who just rambles on about nothing and just fills space with words. It’s almost like they’re trying to either hide something or just fill a gap with nonsense to make them seem important or more knowledgable about a subject. Truth is, they probably know just as much as you do or the next…

In No Particular Order: November 4, 2016

Congratulations! You’ve found the one place of refuge from the upcoming American Election! If you’re anything like me, you’re sick and tired of election talk so forget about all of that for a brief moment before checking your social media. Instead, get lost in the music with this week’s In No Particular Order – a busy one at that. With five albums on the pedestal and a handful more on deck, the first week of November is one to celebrate – regardless of the results from the “greatest country in the…

In No Particular Order: October 21, 2016

Have you ever started walking one way, and then suddenly realize you’re going the wrong way? Of course you have…But do you take out your phone and pretend you just received a text, and then turn around, or do you just walk the other way? I personally like to swing my leg around and rotate dramatically and continue walking. Speaking of new directions, this week’s In No Particular Order has nothing to do with changing orientation, and instead has three standout albums from artists who are continuing to find success in their…

In No Particular Order: October 7, 2016

Well, October’s here; I guess that means that things are about to get a little spooky and a whole lot more pumpkin-flavoured for the next few weeks. Not sure about you, but 2016 is flying by… Fortunately, that means there has been a candy bowl full of fantastic new albums over the past 10 months, and with this week’s In No Particular Order, you’re getting five more! For the entire list of new sweets (i.e. releases), click here. And don’t forget to follow me for more exciting updates on Twitter…

In No Particular Order: September 30, 2016

And now kids, the letter of the week is B! Can you think of any artists that start with the letter B? But seriously. Perhaps it’s merely coincidence, or the end of September just Brings the Best out of the letter B from Bands. This week’s INPO is Brimming with a Bounty of Brilliant musicians – all of which fall under the second letter of the alphabet in my music library. For a full list of new releases click here, and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter and Instagram…

In No Particular Order: September 23, 2016

Alright. It’s already Wednesday and the next edition of In No Particular Order is almost upon us, so I’m going to keep this week short and sweet (unlike last week) – just like the parting small talk of passing acquaintances. “Hey, how are you?” “Good, thanks. You?” “Good”. “Great! See you around!” (Fin) Check out more of the new releases here and follow me on Instagram and Twitter because I said so. Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam – I Had A Dream That You Were Mine You might recognize both names…

In No Particular Order: September 16, 2016

Remember as a kid when you were given some candy (not from a stranger), and you’d rush home, but by the end of the day, your stash would be gone – even though your parents always told you to save some for later? You’d have a bunch of delicious, sugary goodness within your grasp, all at once, and depending on how abundant this candy collection was, you’d be overwhelmed with the sudden influx of sugar (what’s “self-control”?). Essentially that’s what this week’s INPO feels like – you’re given this massive pile…

In No Particular Order – September 9, 2016

Although our calendars point out the official first day of fall, there are more tangible tell-tale signs of the changing of the seasons. Some people decide summer is over based on the colour of the leaves, or the scent of pumpkin spice lattes, or even the early-sent Halloween decorations littering stores, and some might even play weatherman and decide the dropping temperatures signal the commencement of autumn. However, the true marker of the end of summer is that my iTunes library doubles in size. June, July, and August are skinny…

In No Particular Order – August 12, 2016

Hopefully the two and a half months in-between features hasn’t caused any readers some financial, emotional, or musical distress. But then again, if you were betting money, had some form of emotional attachment to the weekly INPO being published, or decided to go not listen to any music until now, then maybe my tardiness is not the problem… (and hey, at least I’m not pulling a Frank Ocean). Although I was half hoping someone would notice there had been a lack of well-written, weekly summaries selecting some of the best…
