NO. 21

I'm a big fan of a Canadian music blog called i(heart)music - not just because they've been very kind to my friends, but because their musical taste is very similar to mine. They've been a big part of expanding my album collection, highlighting local bands from cities with less access to larger audiences. Recently they released their list of "30 Hottest Canadian Bands" for 2009, and I was pleased to see my good friend Kirk, under the moniker Giant Hand, make number twenty one! If you follow my blog you know I've done a lot of work with Kirk and I'm a huge fan of everything he does. I just want to say congratulations Giant Hand, if the Daniel Johnston concert was any indication I predict next year you'll break the top 20 (if not the top 10)!

Giant Hand is also up for three XPress, "Best of Ottawa Awards". As they say "The Best of Ottawa Awards recognizes the people, places and things that make the National Capital a great place to live." Please follow the link and support Giant Hand and his debut album "Coming Home"!

This little video is getting a fair amount of buzz and definitely deserves it. Amazing work by LEWIS. Done in part by Suneeva and Relish.
