I had to post a video for this song. I had no idea what Allen Stone looked like – and not that it matters – but it’s not what I imagined and I love how he surprised me. His soulful voice and smooth melodies will make anyone a fan. Listen for the falsetto at the 4 minute mark. I had to stop what I was doing and rewind to listen again. So good. Great song and great album. Click HERE to grab it.


This song has been kicking around for a while, but I recently found a mix tape I made in Unveristy and it rekindled my love for this track. The Organ are no longer together, but this Vancouver based band’s album Sinking Hearts is still a keeper with its Smiths influenced sound.

I don’t even remember how this song ended up in my library but everytime “Darren” by Allo Darlin’ comes on it makes me smile. I only have one other song by this band and its about falling in love with a girl who listens to Wu Tang. So I’m sure I’ll be hunting for more.

This last one is an oldie but a goodie. I remember hearing this song when my older cousins played it at the cottage and it changed my life. It was catchy and kooky and sent me to find out more.
