From The WildWorks Top 50 of 2013, It’s The Top 10 Non-Canadian Indie Music – S09E19

WildWorks Vinyl Top 10 Jan 6

2013 wasn’t finished yet on this week’s first radio show of 2014 on CKCU-FM. This time, it was the Top 10 Non-Canadian Indie Music of 2013 and considered to be the fourth part of the year end countdown. It’s become a yearly tradition to do two different year-end countdowns. One strictly for Canadian music and the other being non-Canadian music. The non-Canadian list is shorter as I place more emphasis on the Canadian music scene.
Myself and Lauren were counting the best albums from outside of Canada. There were good releases from the top 10 played.
Bands like The Naked and Famous, Vampire Weekend, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The National had highly anticipated albums and there were surprises from HAIM as their popularity exploded in 2013.

There are two different versions of the countdown. The one aired on CKCU was the top 10 while the entry from the Best of 2013 page is the top 13 Non-Canadian Indie music of 2013.
The radio show version had three new Canadian indie tracks for 2014, they were Crissi Cochrane, The Balconies and Silkken Laumann.
The blog version has Hot Natured (recommended by the host of CKCU’s The Cloud), Best Coast and Foals played on the top 13 of 2013. At the end, leftovers of 2013 were “Your Life Is a Lie” by MGMT and Byegone by Volcano Choir.

Too Hooked on Daft Punk’s New Album – S08E41

WildWorks May 22, 2013 VinylizeMe

On the show this week, it’s the post-Victoria Day weekend edition and the buzz being Daft Punk’s new album, Random Access Memories as it got released this week. There’s been a lot of talk because the robotic duo haven’t released new materials for several years and so far, Get Lucky is still number one on the UK Singles Chart for the fourth week.
Aside from the album and the opening intro for the live radio show, I stumbled on a mash-up track done by The Melker Project and played it on the radio show at CKCU-FM. She & Him was played as I Could’ve Been Your Girl got released as a music music. Something about Zooey Deschannel makes her so quirky as she directed the music video. I did watch the season finale of New Girl last week. Wish I could watch more of the tv show.

Also on the show, local band, Fevers released a new single and they will be having a concert on Saturday night at Ritual Nightclub. The band will be giving away the single free for the concert for Saturday night. Opening up for them are adaline, Glenn Nuotio and Birthday Girls. There’s some Canadian indie music added to the mix.

On the Wild 10 Countdown, Gold & Youth is still number one this week. Check the recap over at this link.

Have a great week!
