Ah Canada, land of ruby-red horse mounted police officers and birthplace to the number one spot on my list of people I can cheat on my husband with, Ryan Gosling (fyi I'm only half kidding). This land also happens to be home to Canadian chanteuse Jill Barber, a sixties style crooner who would have fit in swimmingly with the likes of Sinatra or Holiday. While her nostalgia driven tunes are reminiscent of that "golden age" of music, the classicness (yes that's a real word) of her voice combined with sometimes cheeky and sometimes deep lyrics is a refreshing contrast from the over produced radio friendly tunes of today. Barber is another late night Tumblr find of mine that saw me playing the ever catchy finger snapping diddy "Oh My My" on repeat for about a day and half (true story). The rest of her catalog is equally infectious and best enjoyed late at night preferably with a glass of wine and your sweetheart by your side (the sweetheart part is totally optional).
