BANG Music Review: James Hill – The Old Silo

Posted on September 21st, 2014

  Y’all already know I’m an ardent fledgling ukulelist and, as such, a James Hill fan. (Actually, I was a James Hill fan first.) Therefore, I need to tell you that his new album, The Old Silo, was released on Tuesday. Even better, you can stream it live, RIGHT NOW, at jameshillmusic.com. As it happens, […]

Canucks Rock a Romantic Mainstage: David Myles and The Good Lovelies

Posted on February 20th, 2014

I know it’s almost a week since Valentine’s Day, and my excuses for this delay are no more scintillating than usual. But I wanted to let you know THIS: my Hubbibi and I had a DATE. On Valentine’s Day, which has basically never happened. (We always figure it’ll be too crowded to do anything, planning […]

Singin’ and Dancin’

Posted on February 12th, 2014

In our house, we like music a lot. Our family favourites include Raffi, David Francey, Vampire Weekend, Great Big Sea, the 3 Bs (Bach, Beethoven, Brahms), The Good Lovelies, The Lumineers, and The Beatles. Right now, here are some selections we can’t do without: E and AB and I fell in love with this album […]

Glennon Melton, Vampire Weekend, Iron Man 3, and other news bites.

Posted on June 11th, 2013

I had a grand plan to craft a beautiful essay, rife with linkativity, proving the essential similarity of these three items: Glennon Doyle Melton’s book Carry On, Warrior, Vampire Weekend’s new album “Modern Vampires of the City”, And Iron Man 3. You see, this one time, in high school, I got perfect on an essay. […]

A Review of All Things Misérables

Posted on March 7th, 2013

So I finally got to see the new Les Mis movie in mid-February, when it had been in theatres for a month and a half. This is rather a travesty. I’m a musical geek. I could sing you most of the soundtracks for about a dozen different musicals.* I was also a French major; I […]

James Hill – and Anne – Concert, with baby in tow

Posted on October 29th, 2012

On Friday evening, Sean and I had the good fortune to see ukulelist James Hill in concert with his cellist fiancee, Anne Janelle (Davison)… in the company of our not-quite-four-week-old Baby A. We had debated about whether to go, since we would have to buy our baby a ticket, and then there was always the […]

Evidence that after seven years of marriage, my Hubbibi and I are OLD

Posted on August 27th, 2012

Hi everyone, Thanks for all your good wishes! Sean and I had our li’l getaway, and it was really, really nice. AND, it was perfect for retirees.                Huh? We went to check in at our B&B, which is a beautiful house in the country run by a very nice guy named Shane. It has a […]

BAM-BANG Music Review: Barenaked Ladies’ Snacktime

Posted on November 21st, 2011

I find the more I listen to Snacktime, the Barenaked Ladies’ album for kids, the more I want to listen to it. When we look for kids’ music in our household, our main criterion is that it be fun to listen – for us. It’s not that we don’t care whether E is entertained; it’s […]

Dilovely’s Playlist: 20 Sad Songs that Sound Happy

Posted on November 13th, 2011

I know I’m not the only one having a mercurial November. It’s an odd month for a lot of us (including the thermometer). In honour of the confusing nature of the in-between season, let’s pick up our spirits with some songs that are tragic but sound lively and fun. K? Tears of a Clown (1967) […]
