Monday February 16th, 2015 with Joe Reilly
John Southworth and Decemberists Featured Tonight!

We start things off in an electronic mode before we feature music from two new releases. First up is John Southworth's Niagara. This is a gorgeous double album of pristine pop music that is influenced by jazz, soul and folk. Southworth remains an unsung hero of Canadian music and we explore some nostalgic links on this album to Simon and Garfunkel and Everything But The Girl. Next up is the new album from the Decemberists - What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World. We explore some obvious links to artists like Nick Drake and REM and a surprising link to Canada's own horn-infused pop hitmakers from the 1970s LIGHTHOUSE!! You may be surprised by how close Cavalry Captain and Lighthouse's Pretty Lady sound when played back to back! Enjoy.
