So far, the Arkells are up there for Nikki’s Official Tunes of End-of-Winter/Beginning-0f-Spring 2009. They kind of have an element of bland to them though, so I’m looking for alternatives. Past bands of springtimes past include: Local Rabbits, Peter Elkas, (both remind me of walking down Bathurst and Bloor to go to work) Sloan, (driving in springtime) The Unicorns, (non committal springtime grooves) and the White Stripes (way back in 2000 or so when I bought my first ever digital camera, now that I think of it).
I might just default to Local Rabbits again. They seem to work regardless of the year. Joel Plaskett also rules.
