I haven’t written about Detective Kalita on this new blog site yet, and that’s a damn shame. The Michael Parks record came in ’05, I believe, but it still manages to reach my ears with regularity. It’s an unrushed, mellow, and beautiful record, that’s both catchy and contemplative, simple and complex, contradictory and soothing. They’re on the great www.kelprecords.com Kelp Records, who also handle The Acorn and Camp Radio, some of Canada’s best. Check ’em out.
PETER BJORN AND JOHN–LIVE ON 7.30.07
If you don’t know these guys, you need to. Stellar pop. Check out how good they are live, and then go buy their records. They’ve got some stuff available at e-music.
