Winnipeg-based singer-songwriter JP Hoe has become known for his tongue-in-cheek torch songs, spanning different styles and capped off with his smooth voice and casual demeanor. Hoe released his fifth studio record, Mannequin, earlier this year and before his show in Edmonton, shared his daily soundtrack with Vue.
Morning: Rose Cousins is a great way to ease into the day. I just have to battle sadness on the album, or keep extra Kleenex in the office.
Noon: The Shins–Port of Morrow is my favourite record of the year. I've probably listened to it over 100 times since seeing them live in April.
Night: Wilco. I'll bounce back and forth between records, but Yankee Foxtrot and Wilco (the Album) are on high rotation always.

Morning: Fleet Foxes. Play anything in their catalogue. I imagine birds and squirrels flocking to FF's rehearsal space when they start practice around 5 am. They do start practice at 5 am right?
Noon: Aimee Mann is probably my favourite modern singer-songwriter. Top two records are Bachelor No 2 and and The Forgotten Arm, but the single from Charmer, "Labrador" is fantastic.
Night: Patrick Watson–Wooden Arms or Radiohead–In Rainbows. I love night driving so much. Both of these records are amazing accompaniments. Black pavement, no traffic, total peace and relaxation. Absolutely perfect. V
