Think you know your vintage video games? The Motorleague will put your skills to the test with its video for “Failsafes,” the latest single from its new album Acknowledge, Acknowledge. Before its stop in Edmonton, lead vocalist and guitarist Don Levandier shared his soundtrack picks with Vue.
Morning: Something fast and heavy to wake up to—usually the Flatliners or Say Anything.
Noon: I'm usually on a computer, so local stuff or friends' bands. Recently I've been listening to a great band called Savage Young from Moncton.
Night: If it's a weekend, Abba! For weeknights, anything by John K Samson or the Weakerthans.
On the road
Morning: Fun stuff. Today's 10-hour haul is powered by Dexys Midnight Runners. What a blast to listen to.
Noon: We usually throw the iPod on shuffle, so there will be an assortment of Grand Theft Bus, Said the Whale, Northcote, Taylor Hawkins, old Weezer and Wintersleep.
Night: On the road, this has to be something that won't put you to sleep, so loud and heavy rules here: Cancer Bats, Gallows and Comeback Kid. V
