The Tragically Hip, Essential Listening

Where do I begin?  Violins and Tambourines, and this is what I think it means ...

Last night was possibly the last public performance ever by one of Canada's favorite bands, The Tragically Hip.  There.  I've already pissed off 72% of Canadians reading this, who will quickly proclaim that there's no doubt whatsoever that they are THE favorite.  And judging from my Facebook feed last night during the concert, and judging also by the fact that nine of the top ten trending topics on Twitter at one point were directly related to The Hip, I'd find it hard to argue.  I just don't want to appear biased, because in fact, they're my own favorite band.  Click HERE to read a post I wrote about them close to a decade ago, which the Hip ended up featuring on the home page of their website, www.TheHip.com.

CBC live-streamed their final concert, a show in their hometown of Kingston, Ontario.  Let me throw out a quick comment to say that anyone who doesn't understand why Canada should have a national broadcaster may want to re-think their position after last night.  Also, kudos to CBC for ensuring that NO advertising was inserted into the entire broadcast, which lasted almost three hours.  That broadcast is not currently available online yet for replay, but should be soon.

After the show, I was reading some of the articles on mainstream (US) media about the band.  Here are a few (obviously, the last two are Canadian publications):

The New Yorker         Vice           Washington Post         
Slate            CBC              MacLeans

The main reason that I started to write this post is because I promised a friend of mine, Nikki, that I would to try further her musical education about the band.  Like all Canadians, she knows a number of their more well-known commercially-successful songs.  But I said that I'd put together a playlist for her of what I considered to be Hip Essential Listening.

Let me preface by saying that this post will create all sorts of controversy among Hip afficionados.  Why?  Because I haven't included ANY songs in my "Twenty Classic Hip Songs" from anything other than their first four albums.  Somehow, I feel that this is going to create a firestorm of controversy among a number of my friends who are also huge Hip fans.  Admittedly, I'm going to mention a few tracks from [studio] albums five and six.  And don't think that I dislike albums after "Day For Night."  Take "Trouble At The Henhouse," for example.  I feel that this album is their most consistent in terms of flow, and it's best listened to in one sitting, start to finish.  Sadly, that's a concept that seems to have disappeared these days, in our digital work of being able to download individual tracks.  "Trouble At The Henhouse," is more of a musical voyage, although there are only a few songs on it that also want to be able to stand on their own.  That album also has my favorite production approach, with a very warm, crunchy-without-treble, analogue distortion sound on the guitars (except on Ahead By A Century).

Anyway, I'm going to break my recommended tracks down into three groups:  Twenty "Classic Hip," six classic slower songs, and eight other great songs that saw varying degrees of commercial success.

First, my twenty "Classic Hip."  As mentioned, these aren't always the most well-known fan favorites (and I put slower songs into a second group further down this page).  I'll be castigated by some fans due to some of my intentional omissions from this list.  My rationale?  For someone who is only starting to discover more than a smattering of Hip songs, I want to be able to introduce you to songs that show lyrical and musical craftsmanship.  You can click on each of the song titles to find YouTube versions of the songs, although most are not actual videos, just audio recordings.  To avoid the agony of trying to rank them in terms of my favorites, I'm going to list the twenty in chronological/album order:

01. She Didn’t Know [Up To Here]
02. Boots Or Hearts [Up To Here]
03. Every Time You Go [Up To Here]
04. Another Midnight [Up To Here]
05. Opiated [Up To Here]
06. Little Bones [Road Apples]
07. Born In The Water [Road Apples]
08. Three Pistols [Road Apples]
09. On The Verge [Road Apples]
10. Courage [Fully Completely]
11. Looking For A Place To Happen [Fully Completely]
12. At The Hundredth Meridian [Fully Completely]
13. Locked In The Trunk Of A Car [Fully Completely]
14. Fully Completely [Fully Completely]
15. Fifty Mission Cap [Fully Completely]
16. Eldorado [Fully Completely]
17. Grace, Too [Day For Night]
18. So Hard Done By [Day For Night]
19. Nautical Disaster [Day For Night]
20. Thugs [Day For Night]

Some of my personal favorites are definitely far off the beaten commercial track, songs like Eldorado, On The Verge, and Opiated.


Let me also throw out six songs with slower tempos, most of which (aside from #4) became Canadian classics:

01. 38 Years Old [Up To Here]
02. Long Time Running [Road Apples]
03. Fiddler’s Green [Road Apples]
04. Last Of The Unplucked Gems [Road Apples]
05. Wheat Kings [Fully Completely]
06. Scared [Day For Night]


Finally, if you really don't know The Hip's music at all, here are some other hits that you should check out.  Most of these saw more mainstream success than my Top Twenty.  Why didn't I include them in my Classic Hip list?  Well, I guess it's because these songs saw more mainstream success, and I didn't want a lot of the band's other early work to be overshadowed by these songs.

01. Blow at High Dough [Up To Here]
02. New Orleans Is Sinking [Up To Here]
03. Gift Shop [Trouble At The Henhouse]
04. Ahead By A Century [Trouble At The Henhouse]
05. Poets [Phantom Power]
06. Bobcaygeon [Phantom Power]
07. Fireworks [Phantom Power]
08. My Music At Work [Music @ Work]

Most importantly, if you like my choices, I've turned the whole series (34 songs, all three lists) into a giant "Essential Hip" playlist, which is accessible to the public.  Here you go if you want to bookmark it:


I currently have it sorted by default to the same play order as what I've listed in the three lists above.  However, once it starts playing, you can press shuffle (which I recommend) to vary the order of the songs.


So there you go.  I look forward to a stream of comments about my choices.  I'll close by saying that I did agonize for a bit about whether or not to include Ahead By A Century in my main Essential Hip list.  In the end, I didn't, for reasons that I'm not even certain of.  I think one of my goals for this winter will be to release a few cover versions of Hip Songs.  So to be fair, lest anyone think I'm hating on "Ahead By A Century," I'll make sure that I prioritize doing a recording of that song as a winter project.  Stay tuned.







Also, for anyone who wants to compare my picks with the set list from the final concert in Kingston on August 20th (which was amazingly watched by an estimated 11.7 million viewers), here's what they played:

Main Act
50 Mission Cap
Courage
Wheat Kings
At the Hundredth Meridian
In a World Possessed by the Human Mind
What Blue
Tired As F---
Machine
My Music at Work
Lake Fever
Toronto #4
Putting Down
Twist My Arm
Three Pistols
Fiddler's Green
Little Bones
The Last Of The Unplucked Gems
Something On
Poets
Bobcaygeon
Fireworks

Encore 1
New Orleans Is Sinking
Boots or Hearts
Blow at High Dough

Encore 2
Nautical Disaster
Scared
Grace, Too

Encore 3
Locked In The Trunk Of A Car
Gift Shop
Ahead By A Century

SHG Radio Show, Episode 320

Welcome to this week's edition of Subterranean Homesick Grooves™, a weekly electronica-based radio show presented originally on CHMA FM 106.9 at Mount Allison University in Atlantic Canada (but expanded to distribution on other terrestrial and internet-based radio stations), and also distributed as a global podcast through iTunes. The show is normally programmed and mixed by Jonathan Clark (as DJ Bolivia), although some weeks very occasionally feature guest mixes by other Canadian DJ's. The show encompasses many sub-genres within the realm of electronic dance music, but the main focus is definitely on tech-house and techno, and a small amount of progressive, trance, & minimal. Due to the mix of styles, you may hear combinations of tracks that wouldn't normally be featured together in a DJ's live set, but this show is intended to feature various styles of electronic/dance music. Liner notes for this episode (SHG 320) can be seen below.

Para la información en español, vaya aquí.

I should point out that when I make these shows, I mean for them to be a journey. I pay a lot of attention to the programming, and to the development of energy levels. If you're a first-time listener, you might think that the start of the show is quite tame, on the slower and "deeper" side of house or techno. However, give it time. Pay attention to how the styles change throughout the mix, and how the energy builds. Sometimes, I'll be very erratic and jump around between several genres, just for fun. Sometimes, I'll do a particularly dark show, with a heavy emphasis on techno. Most of the time however, you'll find a mix of mostly deep house or minimal or deep techno for the first third of the mix, building into a more upbeat section of tech-house through the middle, perhaps building up to some energetic tracks at the end, which often trespass into the realm of more contemporary house. Don't treat the show as a collection of individual tracks ... think of it as a cohesive experience; an hour-long aural journey of reflection and beats.

By the way, if you're looking for DJ mixes in styles other than progressive/tech-house, check out www.djbolivia.ca/mixes.html. That page has a number of mainstream/top40 dance mixes (the "Workout Mix" series), as well as some deep house, drum and bass, and other styles.

SHG Radio Show, Episode 316

Welcome to this week's edition of Subterranean Homesick Grooves™, a weekly electronica-based radio show presented originally on CHMA FM 106.9 at Mount Allison University in Atlantic Canada (but expanded to distribution on other terrestrial and internet-based radio stations), and also distributed as a global podcast through iTunes. The show is normally programmed and mixed by Jonathan Clark (as DJ Bolivia), although some weeks very occasionally feature guest mixes by other Canadian DJ's. The show encompasses many sub-genres within the realm of electronic dance music, but the main focus is definitely on tech-house and techno, and a small amount of progressive, trance, & minimal. Due to the mix of styles, you may hear combinations of tracks that wouldn't normally be featured together in a DJ's live set, but this show is intended to feature various styles of electronic/dance music. Liner notes for this episode (SHG 316) can be seen below.

Para la información en español, vaya aquí.

I should point out that when I make these shows, I mean for them to be a journey. I pay a lot of attention to the programming, and to the development of energy levels. If you're a first-time listener, you might think that the start of the show is quite tame, on the slower and "deeper" side of house or techno. However, give it time. Pay attention to how the styles change throughout the mix, and how the energy builds. Sometimes, I'll be very erratic and jump around between several genres, just for fun. Sometimes, I'll do a particularly dark show, with a heavy emphasis on techno. Most of the time however, you'll find a mix of mostly deep house or minimal or deep techno for the first third of the mix, building into a more upbeat section of tech-house through the middle, perhaps building up to some energetic tracks at the end, which often trespass into the realm of more contemporary house. Don't treat the show as a collection of individual tracks ... think of it as a cohesive experience; an hour-long aural journey of reflection and beats.

By the way, if you're looking for DJ mixes in styles other than progressive/tech-house, check out www.djbolivia.ca/mixes.html. That page has a number of mainstream/top40 dance mixes (the "Workout Mix" series), as well as some deep house, drum and bass, and other styles.

You don't even need to have a Dropbox account to download files from it.

"Courage" Remix Contest Entries

I recently sponsored a remix contest for a track called "Courage" that Urban Francis and I put together.  We were overwhelmed by a flood of entries for the contest!  We had more than a hundred entries, which was a LOT more than we expected.  Narrowing down a final winner was pretty difficult.  Here's what we did:

Urban Francis picked about fifty of his preferred tracks, and we shared those with eight of our friends who are music producers or DJ's.  Each of those eight friends got to pick two tracks out of the group.  One track would become a finalist, and another was a "noteworthy entry" that didn't make it as a finalist, but which our panel judge felt deserved more exposure.  We then pitted the eight finalists against each other to come up with a final winner.

In judging a winner, the judging panel looked at a number of factors, but mostly the following four considerations:

1. Creativity - Any genre was acceptable, and we were really pleased with the variety that we got!
2. Professional Sounding Production - Does the remix sound like it's ready for professional mastering?
3. Identifiable - Does the remix have some identifiable elements of at least one of the original mixes, either vocal samples and/or melody lines or chord progressions?
4. Playability - Is the track a suitable choice for a DJ or radio programmer to include in a set or a show?


The final winner that was picked was a mix by Lazarus, of New York.  We'll feature it first in this post.  But we also wanted to share the other tracks submitted by the other seven finalists, and the eight noteworthy entries that were picked, so we're including SoundCloud links in the this post to all of these sixteen tracks.  All of these are downloadable, so feel free to grab copies and share them with your friends.

You can also grab copies of all of these tracks (and of our original Ableton project files for this track) from our public Dropbox folder at this link, although it may be the first week of August before I get a chance to upload the remixes to Dropbox.  In the meantime, you can download them directly from the SoundCloud links above:



You can also see a number of YouTube videos explaining our production of the original project by visiting this link:




I have to give a huge thanks, on behalf of myself and Francis, to everyone who submitted entries.  Above and beyond the sixteen tracks that we've featured above, I've already heard a number of really professional sounding other entries, and it's obvious that a lot of participants put a lot of time and effort into making their productions.  There were a lot of entries, including some that aren't featured above, that could arguably be judged winners!

I'm currently doing forestry work in the Canadian bush, so I haven't had much time to be heavily involved in this contest.  However, I have a few weeks of downtime in early August, and my first goal is to listen to every single track that was submitted, and I'll be sharing a few more of the remixes in our Dropbox folder at that time.

Thanks for your interest in this remix contest!
