episode #229

We start off this week’s show with a new track from TV On The Radio, a band that had tragedy befall it this past week when bassist Gerard Smith passed away from lung cancer.  Smith was only 36, and some reports state that he found out about his cancer less than two months ago.  Very sad news, indeed, and though the band cancelled a few shows after Smith’s death, they will continue to tour in support of their new album, Nine Types of Light.

Our second set of the show slowwwwws things down quite a bit, with some tracks by Toronto’s Loom, Ottawa’s His Clancyness, and Calgary’s Chad VanGaalen. We also spin a track from the latest release by slow-core pioneers Low, before getting into some more classic-sounding pop/rock/folk tracks by Jason Collett and Iron & Wine (among others). And, because her website says she’s working on a new album, we’ll hear a neat live version of a Kathleen Edwards‘ track.

Lastly, we round things out with some new Explosions in the Sky and wonder, is there some post-rock revival going on? GY!BE reunions, recent discs by Mogwai and Explosions–we could get used to this!
