I came across a few new tunes in the last couple of months. Here’s a round-up of some of them.
Saali & the Ravenhearts – Qannilirtuq
I’d been hearing this song on Arviaqpaluk (the local Arviat radio station) for weeks before I finally figured out its title and who performs it.
Saali & the Ravenhearts are a band from Nunavik who perform songs largely in Inuktitut. Check them out on CBC Radio 3.
The Tallest Man On Earth – The Blizzards Never Seen the Desert Sands
I posted this in mid-February when we were in the middle of our 6th major blizzard since Christmas. Who knew there were still almost 10 more blizzards to go?
I could have used some desert sands at that point.
Ólafur Arnalds & Alice Sara Ott – Reminiscence
I discovered Ólafur Arnalds when somebody posted about the soundtrack for the TV show ‘Broadchurch,’ which is excellent. This led me to this collaboration between Arnalds and pianist Alice Sara Ott.
And yes, that is the Mountain from Game of Thrones in the video.
George Ezra – Listen to the Man
Love this guy’s voice. Featuring Sir Ian McKellan. It’s a lot of fun.
