This movie is set to release just in time for the X-Mas session and is on my hit list. It won a Grand Prix at Cannes and has a pretty outstanding rating on Rotten Tomatoes and from all the buzz I’m hearing about it, a likely Oscar contender. It’s been a while sine we’ve heard from the Coen brothers and lucky for us, they have paired up with T Bone again to win over the hearts of movie and folk music buffs alike. Premiering at TIFF on December 20th, this movie is a must see! Did I forget to mention that Justin Timberlake is also apart of this cast?… yah…. a must see.



This song encourages productivity, even on a rainy Monday. Enjoy!




Album drops today, could not be more stoked.


Check out this new track Lorde recently released while on tour in Paris. The description she includes with the track reads “i am in paris as i release this. every street we drive down makes my eyes pop with the most incredible things carved in stone, and gilded on pillars, and wrought with metal; the heroes and heroines of this city aren’t so hard to find. this song’s are a little more mismatched, less classic courtesans on their pedestals, but nonetheless brilliant. this song is kinda of that world, and at the same time, very much of this one. enjoy.”

I’m pretty sure she can do no wrong.

Shout out to indie88 for bringing this song to my attention, and just in general for gracing the Toronto airwaves with some exceptional music.


One of the few reasons I haven’t fallen asleep at my desk today. Happy Monday listening IRVers!



Arcade Fire, we love you and we’ve missed you. IRV has been counting down the days until 9/9/9 Reflektor released date and these guys did not disappoint. This modern day disco track is creating a need for a dance party but you know you are going to have some bumping beats when Bowie is on guest vocals… All I ask is that you play a show in Toronto soon, but I will come to Montreal if you make me…

Album drops Oct 29th.



IRV is SERIOUSLY obsessed with this girl right now. We posted about her a few weeks ago, but we wanted to make sure you checked her out beyond her current hit “Royals”. We tried to get tickets to her upcoming show at the Hoxton, but it sold out in less than half an hour! Anyone know how we can get our hands on some? Willing to sell our souls if necessary…

Ladies and gentlemen, the day has finally come. Toronto is getting an indie radio station. For years I have patiently waited for this. I love to listen to the radio, but I don’t think I can take one more day of Top 40 – thankfully there will now be Indie88 gracing the Toronto airwaves. They are in the final stages of launching and will be on the air before you know it. For the interim, they’ve got a feed going that you can stream on their website. CHECK IT!

Not only have they put an end to my radio listening woes, but they also have a pretty awesome blog full on awesome new music. Pretty fucking awesome if you ask me.
