Smells like secrets

But it's out! Having recently moved to Toronto from Ottawa, The Balconies had a CD release party at Lee's Palace this past Friday. The cover glows in the dark, the songs make your feet tap and the members are absolutely adorable, so check it out.

Arnaud Fleurent-Didier's "France Culture" is a nice look into his own family history. Video with English translation below. Keep looping, it's that good.

If you've ever had the luxury of attending an Arab wedding, there's one thing that stands out about the wedding singers: for 15 minutes, they will fidget with the same few notes on their keyboard-synthesizer and thank the crowd in the mic. Then, they proceed by playing a song that has nothing to do with any of the notes they played on the keyboard just seconds prior. Does it make sense? No. Why do they do it? I don't know, but it sure as hell entertains me and if requested, I'll imitate them for you [gladly]. So you can imagine my excitement when I heard Siriusmo's "Last Dear" because the keyboard-synthesizer sound in the song is so similar to the one played by Arab wedding singers it's ridiculous! Have a listen or watch the video below. It comes on at around 1:47. Honourable mention: Intro to Phoenix's "If it's not with you"
