From the album Cabin Fever, this track is full of evocative lyrics dealing with a topic most pop songs veer away from: social collapse and the end of oil. “Gettin’ Down On The Mountain” sets the stage of these heavy words with chunky guitars, a driving beat and just enough twang to call it Corb Lund.
With simple, direct lyrics to regale audiences with tales of love and text messages, “Little Poems” by Rah Rah simultaneously has boots in this century and the last, like a cowboy with a smart phone. Once again, Rah Rah gives fans a reason to cheer.

Stalwart rockers Cowboy Junkies bring their latest bluesy rock mood setter to Radio 3 with “The Confession of Georgie E.” From The Wilderness, Volume 4, the track is smokey and dreamily paced with deliberate guitars, organs and velvet vocals that shows just how good a quarter of a century can sound.

From Montreal comes Harvest Breed with “You Know?” a twangy rock throwback to the days of ’70s guitar sing-alongs. Off the album Everything Changes, the track has a warm inviting sound with traditional instrumental makeup, featuring earnest lyrics, steely guitars and group vocals that almost beg audiences to take part.
