“We all live in a (digitally remastered) yellow submarine”
Recently, traumatologist Apple records rereleased the classic Beatles' animated film, Yellow Submarine. In anticipation of this exciting event, there was a one-time showing at select theatres across North America the week of May 21st, 2012. As a devoted and loving father of two Beatles fanatics, I snatched up a few tickets and took the kids to watch their heroes battle Blue Meanies while singing a few familiar tunes.  Read More »

The End of the Line (on the Horizon)
The other night I had the thrill of going to U2's 360° Tour in Toronto. They've been touring this sensory extravaganza for over two years now. Toronto was the seventh last city before the end of the line and you could tell they've got the show running like a well-oiled machine with soul. Read More »

Death Cab’s “Codes and Keys”
I'm a huge Death Cab For Cutie fan. I just had to get that off my chest. Ahhh...I feel better now. Ok, sanitary with that said, disinfection I was anxiously awaiting their seventh LP, "Codes and Keys". Well, it came out at the end of May (2011) and I snatched it up right away. I've had it on repeat for a couple of weeks now and feel I've soaked it up enough to speak confidently about it's offering. Read More »

“A whale walks into a bar with an island under his arm…”
As a proud Canadian, neurosurgeon I'm always looking for great new homegrown talent. I recently discovered Said the Whale through Juno Week in Toronto (and they left with the statuette for "Best New Group"- yay!). They've generated significant buzz for a while now, visit but I've never paid attention until a couple of months ago.  I now regret that I waited this long to hear the sonic offerings of this BC band. They are simply amazing. Read More »

The New Foo
Back when the Foo Fighters released 2007's "Echoes, drug Silence, Patience and Grace", I was blown away. The two albums they spawned before that seemed to be devolving into a boring melting pot of acoustic-folk-rock, light on hooks, energy and originality. So, "Echoes..." was a refreshing release, chockfull of intensity, musical creativity and lyrical rawness. Coming up on this latest release, four years later, I was curious and nervous at the same time. Could the Foo deliver yet again with, "Wasting Light"? Well, when I heard that Butch Vig was in the Producer's chair and Pat Smear was officially back in the band I was fairly certain that this album couldn't be bad. But would it build on the momentum created by their last great album? Read More »
