Real Love Winnipeg Records is a record label from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Each year, local musicians are invited to collaborate and record songs that lead their way to being released on Beach Station Blues compilation records. Recording in June, the third in the series Beach Station Blues III was released on October 24, 2014. The release contains fourteen songs by fourteen different artists. In addition, a bonus track follows the final track. It features the album’s first single, “Bachelor Suite,” by Somebody Language. Other artists featured on the album include: Animal Teeth, Bear Clones, Ingrid Gatin, and Palm Trees.
It is difficult to narrow down which of the tracks stand out the most. It is simply a great collection of songs that cover multiple genres. Each song on the track listing differ so there is variety. The tracks that have been played the most for me are: “Bachelor Suite” by Somebody Language, “Doesn’t Feel Like Home” by French Press, “I Should Have Died” by Naysa, and “We’re In This For Tears” by Eagle Lake Owls.
I highly enjoyed listening to Beach Station Blues III. It provides a good introduction to artists that you may not have heard of before. I would definitely pick up the album and check out the individual artists featured on the album!
Hi Everyone! My name is Remington Fioraso. I am a graduate of the University of the Fraser Valley’s Bachelor of Arts program in Sociology, Anthropology, and Media and Communication Studies. Within my program, I focused on social media, learning about contemporary and classical sociological theory (Including Marx, Foucault, Bourdieu, and Durkheim), and communicating effectively in various modes and for different audiences (including oral communication, business communication, academic writing, entertainment media, and presentations utilizing visual media). Within my program, the question arose for many courses, “What is the relevance in the real world?” Stepping (temporarily) away from being in university, I gained an interest in Latin American development, social movements, and business. Sooner than later, I will be applying for post-grad programs to dive further into LA development and social movements to gain a theory-background in addition to a personal perspective onto the topics. In my free time, I love to travel, consume media, eat, listen to music, and write. Listening to music and writing led to my interest in working with Canadian Beats! I have been a part of the team since April 2014. A few of my personal highlights of interviews include ones with some of my favourite artists – Sumo Cyco, Madeline Merlo, and High Valley.
