Morning Music Notes – Together Aspire, Together Achieve (in Hamilton!)
Some new stuff from the Strumbellas, who will be hanging out at the Dakota Tavern in Toronto every week in February. The track is Sailing, which the band won’t be doing every week in February.
The track has a poppy folk feel to it, with a catchy, layered chorus, and a sea of vocals. The song is from The Strumbellas’ sophomore album, We Still Move On Dance Floors (which has some cool album art, too) – check it out below.

More Super Bowl news: If you’re skeptical over the functionality and practicality of Google Glass, you and billions of others will get the chance to see what it can do. There is a Google-CBS Super Bowl tie-in. Viewers can watch the game from the vantage point of sports anchor John Kucko from CBS’ WROC-TV Rochester affiliate. Nice marketing, Google. (via Slash Gear)
