Kendra Morris - Banshee

Kendra Morris may have stolen the show with her album Banshee. When your name is linked to the likes of DJ Premier and Johnny Mathis, you are automatically on people’s radar. Primo is considered one of the best if not the best at what he does and covering a Johnny Mathis song is no small task. Kendra Morris has proven she has the gift, the song “Concrete Waves” made a big splash last year and her cover of Mathis’ “No Love (But Your Love)” has been making the rounds on the blogosphere and the feedback has been nothing but positive.

As for my opinion, she’s a child of the Lauryn Hill generation, which puts her in good company if you ask me. She listened, learned, adapted and made her own music that has its own style and sound to it. Tracks like “Pow” and “Today” are fun, the production is strong and they had me playing them on repeat. Banshee; the title track is actually the last track off the album and is a fitting conclusion to a smooth dreamy musical experience.

Goodbye Montreal Mirror

No one can ever say that The Montreal Mirror wasn't a major part of this city. Love it or hate it you read it every week without fail. Those of you who didn't, well let just say you missed out; BIG. With a delicate balance of culture, politics, humour and genuine love for Montreal, the Mirror kept us all entertained and connected for the last 28 years. You didn't know what to do in the summer, they had you covered, you started your first semester and don't know the city, they got you there too and if you just needed a clue, the Mirror had that too.

With that said it is a sad day for Montreal when we lose another piece of the pie that makes this city so great. Money isn't everything, it can't buy you happiness but for the big wigs at Sun Media, it's enough of a factor to close down something that was worth more than just some final line on a budget. It was a place where people spoke their minds, people got discovered and a guy like me; who works in radio, can be a featured person and make his family proud.

So goodbye to the Montreal Mirror, thank you for being there, thank you for loving us and we will never forget you.


 

Jonwayne - This is False - Mixtape download

One day I got an email from a buddy over at Stones Throw with a link to this mixtape. I downloaded it and here I am reposting it because this mixtape is that good. This was my first introduction to Jonwayne and I have, bravo. In an era of hip hop where commercial tracks are killing the industry and the underground scene is thriving from the advances in affordable technology, Jonwayne is throwing it back. His flow may not be the most orginal, but his delivery is consistant and the beats are solid, which puts him leaps and bounds ahead of others. So download the mixtape, listen to the tracks and enjoy it for yourself. 

Fav track - So Delirious
