episode #230

Well, it’s not all bad news in Ottawa today (although maybe we should have saved our GY!BE track for this week…), so here’s a sunny, orange-coloured setlist arranged back when the results were still pundit-projections and bad guesses.

Maybe we should have aimed for a majority of Canadian artists, but nonetheless, we turn to Quebec to provide the show with some nice momentum with tracks from Malajube and The Dears‘ latest releases. Also, a neat track from some inscrutable band called Purity Ring (not that emo band The Promise Ring, as Mike erroneously identifies them on-air).

But the show is dominated by songs from American artists (perhaps in honour of our Dear Leader’s penchant for all things American, including wedge politics): we’ll hear songs by San Francisco’s Papercuts, Philly’s Kurt Vile, and new material from Seattle’s Fleet Foxes–their new disc Helplessness Blues can still be heard free online.

So press play and cast your vote for myboytheriotgirl!
