episode #271 – Mike’s undoing

This was meant to be your Victoria Day long weekend playlist, but in true V-day style, the long-weekend festivities spilled out from their three-day container and into real life. We did, however, hear the new Japandroids track a billion times, and we love it (so press play and hear it)!

But fear not, this week’s show is a two-hour, multi-purpose extravaganza billed as the last one programmed just by Mike before we bow out for the summer, and as playlist to it. Hopefully this 29 song show (chock-full of new & timeless Canadian indie tracks) will tide you over until our next and final show, on June 6th, programmed by yours truly.

Check out tracks off new albums by PS I Love You, Best Coast, Patrick Watson, Great Lake Swimmers, & Zeus, and sit back and nod along to Mike’s hometown faves Manitoba, Junior Boys & Luke Doucet. Plus he couldn’t avoid a trip down memory lane with more than a few stops in the 90s.

So join us again in a couple of weeks when we’ll sign off with a three-hour show, giving you five final hours to get you through the long, hot summer!
