Favorite bands :
I dont really have a favourite, but just to give you an idea of what I'm listening to:
Most of what I listen to is indie, quite a bit of folk, punk, some indie-ish math rock, and even alot of poppy stuff. every so often I'll listen to some proggy and alternative stuff. I'm also a fan of 2nd and 3rd wave ska, and I spent last year waking up to jazz FM every morning, so.I guess I'm kind of all over the spectrum
If I had to list a couple of bands as my favourites, I'd say The Weakerthans, Attack in Black, Elliott Smith, Built to Spill, Death Cab for Cutie, Arkells, American Football, Great Lake Swimmers, Joel Plaskett, Minus the Bear, Mountain Goats, Propagandhi, Silversun Pickups, and The Waking Eyes
just ask and I'll be more specific about bands =p
