Sentimental as I am, I sometimes succumb to bouts of nostalgia and lament the passing of Toronto bands that I really enjoyed. Or somewhat enjoyed. Or barely enjoyed. Such feelings lead me to create playlists of songs from bands you probably never heard of.
I did it last October.
I did it last November.
The bummer, of course, is that you’ll latch on to one of these bands and realize that you’ll never see them perform or hear new material from them. (Cinema CDs can be incredibly difficult to come by).
Or you could choose to live in the moment and listen to six great songs, then move on with your life. “When The Water Rises” was one of my favourite songs to listen to while running long distances in the summer of 2009.
