Ruby Slippers October 7 2016

Hey everybody!

It's Thanksgiving weekend and here we are together again!
I have resisted the temptation to include nutsy songs about turkeys running for their lives and the joys of family gatherings to put together a varied and awesome (if I do say so myself) playlist befitting the occasion.

FYI the last track is by an amazing electronic artist, Robert T from his latest project available on Bandcamp. And a Canadian to boot!


Dead Honey ... Die Mannequin *
When Something Stands For Nothing ... Headstones *
Wastelands ... The Dead Love (new)
Undone (The Sweater Song) ... Weezer (it is fall after all)
Dreams (cover) ... The Kills
Eaten By A Bear ... deBra 666 * (camping on the long weekend)
Amadeus ... Bravestation *
Cheetah On Drugs ... Brother Octopus *
Saint Nothing ... Qristina and Quinn Bachand *
Sister of The Moon (cover) ... Craig Wedren & St. Vincent
Try Try Again ... The Rising Few *
The Less I Know The Better ... Tame Impala
Corona ... Robert T *

May you have a glorious and safe holiday

See you next week
