Indie Morning Wake-up Call Top 5 - CHSR 97.9 (Fredericton)

I noticed today that we are being played on CHSR 97.9 FM:

The Top Canadian Albums on the Indie Morning Wake-up Call for the week ending April 30 2010
1) Little Miss Higgins - "Across the Plains"
2) The Blue Violets - "The Blue Violets"
3) Sam Tutanuak - "Utiqpungaa"
4) The Arboreal Quartet - "The Arboreal Quartet"
5) Delhi to Dublin - "Planet Electric"

I've seen Delhi to Dublin live -- they did a show at Bobards here in Montreal last summer. I got the impression that they were definitely used to playing large outdoor festivals -- to some degree they were playing past the audience at this venue. With those large windows behind him, the dhol player definitely didn't need amplification!

Good stuff, and the setting reminded me of seeing Martyn Bennett at a club in Guelph, Ontario, probably the Albion. So much gear and energy for that small room!
