Ellen Page: On my iPod

The star of 'Juno,' 'Inception,' and the upcoming 'Super' takes us through her current playlist

Dog Day, Know Who You Are
”One of my favorite new bands, and they happen to be from my hometown, Halifax. There is a nostalgic tinge to their music that I find completely absorbing. The melody and catchy tunes all have a lo-fi quality that creates a rare feeling of intimacy. Goodness, am I overthinking all this?”

Balam Acab, See Birds
”All they have available right now is an EP, and I am so excited for their full-length record. It is like nothing I have heard, and when I listen to their music, I feel it in my entire body. Transports my mind to another place and makes me dance like a freak. Magic. It’s magic.”

Salem, King Night
”Their record King Night is remarkable. Creepy but sort of staggeringly beautiful. Similar to Balam Acab in a hypnotic sense but also sort of claustrophobic in a good way. I can’t wait for more.”

Wild Flag, Glass Tambourine
”Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss [former Sleater-Kinney wonders] team up with Rebecca Cole and Mary Timony to create what I think is potentially one of the greatest rock & roll bands ever. Yes, I said it. Saw them play live in California and my brain exploded. Hence how inarticulate I am at describing my love for their music.”

Adam Hurst, First Light
”I saw this in a review: ‘If you aren’t listening to him, you are making a mistake.’ Can we just leave it at that? I think that describes it perfectly.”
