Canada by way of Mexico: The Tallest Tree - Boat


 
Some of the best songs we receive are from bands with no music industry connections at all, as evidenced by this recent message:

Hi Rick & Katie,
 
The Tallest Tree is a band formed by Dawn from Dundas, ON and Armando from Mexico City.
 
We have our first single and video to show you today.
 
We met a couple years ago when Armando's band, The Oats, was playing in Canada. 
 
And that's when Armando fell in love with Dawn.

RIP Tommy Ramone. Watch a classic 1977 Ramones CBGB performance

The Ramones
Johnny, Tommy, Joey & Dee Dee

They're all gone now. Tommy Ramone, original drummer of the archetypal punk band the Ramones, passed away on Saturday from cancer. The last of the surviving original members, Tommy (born Tamás Erdélyireal) played on the first three Ramones albums and went on to produce the Replacements and Red Kross while keeping a hand in production of subsequent Ramones records.

Sylvan Esso does the hanky panky

Sylvan Esso

Sylvan Esso have become the chosen ones for 2014.  Every year one lucky band cuts through all the Internet noise and delivers a track that instantly captures the imagination of music fans. The song Coffee with it's seemingly disparate combination of sparse electronic overtones and simple lyrics transforms into something that is undeniably catchy and different at the same time.
