Hello music lovers!

If you had eyes, ears and a heartbeat this week, you were also blown away when Osheaga Festival released their 2012 lineup – it’s the best roster announced since Coachella – even putting (my personal fave) Sasquatch to shame. If you somehow failed to get a look at it, here you go:

 

In the spirit of this announcement, I’m posting a few of my favourite videos from some of these bands to get everyone excited about summer and music festivals and blankets and beers in the sun! Enjoy!

The Black Keys – Tighten Up

How can you NOT get your groove on with this tune?!

 

MGMT – Electric Feel

This track always takes me back to summer road trips to Saskatchewan (I know…). But still – FUN!

 

Franz Ferdinand – Take Me Out

I can’t wait to see these guys!

 

Kathleen Edwards – Change the Sheets

I just love everything she does. And a collab with Justin Vernon never hurts either!

 

Les Breastfeeders – 400 Miles

 

Happy Friday – have a great weekend!
