I quickly fell in love with Basia Bulat after her Polaris Prize nomination in 2009. I’ve seen Basia Bulat play several times in Ottawa (and Wakefield) and it’s always a great show.

Aziz Ansari’s Netflix masterpiece is the only thing I’ve seen hilariously shuffle from The Human League to Mac DeMarco aside from my iPod. Here’s the thing […]
