Almost two years in the making, Guelph band Mandroid Echostar‘s first EP was released on their Bandcamp page for free download (I highly recommend donation, though) on April 22, 2012.

(Editors Note: This post was written Monday. We realize it’s Wednesday but I had some technical difficulties. It’s my fault it’s just going up now.

I don’t know about you but my 2011 was nuts. I left my first career, started working for Oaktree Media (Thanks for saving me Kelly!), started Music Lives. I’m sure I did some other stuff too but let’s get down to the good stuff. The music we saw, the hits we loved or plagued us and […]

This weeks Jimmy Jazz, Guelph, Name That Tune, came from a post made by Time Magazine showcasing their critics picks since the publication began. I mixed them all up and came up with this! As always, the number next to the song is how long it was played for. Round 1 1. Iron Man – […]

Here is the list of background music from Lunch Up Guelph. If you don’t know what that is, get a Twitter account! I know I broke some rules along the way, but I did only have a few hours this week to dedicate to this playlist. I’ll highlight a few of my favourites along the […]
