Jan. 30, 2013 - Issue #902: Come cry with Daniel Romano
Modern meets retro for Jordan Norman, who began penning songs at age 14. Since breaking into the Edmonton music scene, his career has taken him to regular performances in Dublin, Ireland. Fueled by influences such as Neil Young, Dan Mangan and Nirvana, Norman brings soft acoustic melodies together with gritty rock. Prior to his latest show in Edmonton, Norman shared his soundtrack picks with Vue.
Morning: Currently my alarm is set to "Churchill Square" by Christian Hansen. I usually have it stuck in my head for a good portion of the day. The entire Power Leopard album encourages movement and the morning is when I need the most encouragement.
Noon: Neutral Milk Hotel, In the Aeroplane Over the Sea. One of my favourite albums of all time.
Night: I like to wind down to a little "'Goodnight, Moonlight" by Edmonton musician Alex Vissia from her exceptional album A Lot Less Gold. Lyrically and melodically amazing.
On the road
Morning: Rural Alberta Advantage, Departing.
Noon: The Weakerthans, Reconstruction Site. My favourite band of all-time.
Night: Dan Mangan, Nice, Nice, Very Nice. "Road Regrets" is an obviously fitting song for being on tour.
