Midnight Looms 056 – PARTNER – June 22nd 2021
Tonight, we wrap up another month and our Pride celebrations and we’ve got such a fun band joining us to do it. Montreal based, QUEER, POST CLASSIC ROCK duo, Lucy and Josee, better known as PARTNER! Chris Deville, of Stereogum, wrote that “few bands sound like they’re having more fun than Partner”, and you’re gonna hear a set of tunes from their latest album, NEVER GIVE UP, to demonstrate that fun. Trust us, you’re in for a good time, especially if you can get down to some ROCK N ROLL vibes.
Being the final episode before our summer break, along with the end of another CRAZY 88 SPOTIFY PLAYLIST and our final broadcast during Pride Month on top of all that, our host, GOBS, did his best to pack this episode with epic goodness. He calls up the NUMBER ONE FAN of RETRO WAVE band, ACTORS, drops a ground breaking RARE VINYL featuring Baltimore drag queen and queer icon, MISS TONY, and christens the brand new release from LEATHERS as this month’s SYN (Song You Need). All that before sending you gently into a new day with a set of essential QUEER COUNTRY from PARKDALE REBELS, ORVILLE PECK, K.D. Lang and more.
This episode is also PACKED with NEW MUSIC from ART D’ECCO, THE BEACHES, THE BIRTHDAY MASSACRE, BOBBY DOVE, CHURCH OF TREES FT. CAROL POPE, JUANY BRAVO & STARVING YET FULL, NIGHTJACKET, and PET SHOP BOYS.
Now that you know what's up, let’s make “POST CLASSIC ROCK” happen!
“It’s hard to be out of the closet when you can’t even be out of the house” - Gobs & Partner
This may have been “Quarantine Pride 2” but we sure managed to have a blast with it anyways! See you in August ;)
