FILTER likes music. There's no hiding it. We also like our own opinions a whole bunch, so once a week we give the masses a fleeting glimpse into our selective stereos and Internet browsers to let them see firsthand what fuels our endless devotion. We like to think of it as community service. We're selfless like that. So without further ado, here are the official, inarguable, objectively good FILTER Weekly Picks—providing everything from new LPs you should be spinning to the latest good-fer-you videos. Yeah, we're good at what we do:

Chet Faker - "No Diggity"
Why: One of the stand out acts from SXSW, Chet Faker did a great version of a classic jam. - Jose Vargas

Slacker Canadian Music Week
Why: Celebrating 30 years, Slacker Canadian Music Week was this past weekend.  FILTER was honored to be a part of the festival and had a great time this year presenting 2 stages featuring The Temper Trap, Oberfhoffer, Pond, I Am Oak, Ewert and the Two Dragons, and Paula & Karol. - Mike Bell

Why: After nearly a year and a half, my favorite show made its season five premiere last night. So many changes, and then there’s Don Draper, can’t wait for what’s to come. - Alyssa Jones

Game of Thrones
Why: Because, Game of Thrones. It's back Sunday. Game of Thrones. - Wes Martin


Draw Something (Free app download here)
Why: Listen; I'm not a gamer. I have zero desire to play Angry Birds. But good grief, the proudest moment of my week came from correctly deciphering a friend's questionable drawing of Beyonce. Once I unlock extra colors and buy that new iPad, WATCH OUT. Let's get Drawsome y'all. - Samantha Barnes

David Cronenberg's 'A Dangerous Method'
Why: This riveting "true" story about Freud, Jung, and their pretty, wacked-out patient hits Blu-ray and DVD via Sony Pictures tomorrow. Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen, Michael Fassbender and Vincent Cassel could act circles around any cast... and DC is just the man to direct them to dangerous, cocaine-fueled heights. - Pat McGuire

Emma Louise, "Jungle" from Full Hearts and Empty Rooms EP
Why: Calling it out here, Emma Louise is the next big-buzzy Aussie that will take over the obsessive and intrigued ears of all. Like her homeland musical peer Gotye, Emma Louise has a backing force in her music that will captivate tastemakers and indie-pop fans alike. - Andrea Narvaez
