Epic Music Post

Facebook friend and notable Nanaimo saxophonist Cameron Wigmore makes a post that basically asks for his friends favourite music selections. I want to immortalize this valuable window of useful  information!

So here is a list which I plan to hyperlink completely.  I’ll be screening tunes for my radio show, so maybe I’ll even write my reviews of some music, too. In the meantime, I will begin attaching active links to the artist names. Of course, in this futuristic-pirate world, I suggest paying the artists some cash for their troubles. Somehow, someway. Hopefully by shelling out to see them play live, or by purchasing copies of their music.

The following is what Cam’s FBfriends suggested:

Broken Bells, Menahan Street Band, SOHN, Bear In Heaven, Tame Impala, and Beach House.
