Sad to hear Lou Reed died yesterday. He was an important icon to me, hearing The Velvet Underground & Nico for the first time was a mind blowing experience, finding out it had been made back in 1967 was hard to believe.
He wrote some great songs and hopefully he enjoyed his Life.
Thanks Lou Reed!!
Thanks to CFBX! Number 2 on the Electronic Charts and number 17 in their top thirty, great to be getting airplay, a few charts showing activity right now. Big kudos for all the support out there. Far North Sounds spinning one of my favourite tracks off of the album, Glass Knives. Somehow made the Hip Hop/Electronic Charts too. All airplay is good, glad to get the album out there.
A busy few months, the album has had airplay across Canada, including CBC Radio 3, CKUA commented the album was “colourful and very cinematic”, as well as a few fantastic podcasts in Canada, UK and in the US, and not forgetting the worldwide spins on Jango Internet Radio.
Have been trying to see how to release some demo tracks recorded in Edmonton in December and January. Have 7 songs demoed, not sure if they’ll be released as an EP or maybe rerecorded for the next album
Have also been working on new demos, some radical departures in sound, so not sure if they’ll be released under Sound/S/Lab or a new name.
