Midnight Looms 057 – POLARIS PRIZE MEGAMIX – August 03rd 2021
We are back on air after 5 weeks vacation and stoked to start up a new CRAZY 88 PLAYLIST with you. The POLARIS PRIZE SHORT-LIST has been announced. It’s Canada’s most important music prize. There’s lots of ways to experience the 10 albums on that list. If you want a sampling of each album, we’ve got you covered. We did it last year and it went so well we’re gonna do it again. A Polaris short-list MEGA-MIX, featuring CADENCE WEAPON, DIJAHSB, DOMINIQUE FILS-AIME, JACQUES GREENE, KLO PELGAG, LEANNE BETASAMOSAKE-SIMPSON, MUSTAFA, THE OBGMs, TOBi, THE WEATHER STATION, and ZOON.
To get you warmed up for the Polaris picks, our host, GOBS, drops a set a BRAND NEW MUSIC FROM TRUE LEGENDS and we mean some of the most important artists ever recorded. Expect the unexpected when you hear these fresh sounds from A CERTAIN RATIO, & PAUL McCARTNEY along with posthumous releases from TONY ALLEN and PRINCE. That’s right, NEW PRINCE!!
For the final third of the program, Gobs opens up the REQUEST LINE. Last month Gobs got such an overwhelming response when he asked about your favourite PRIDE JAMS that he’s doing a second set of them. Check out EPISODE 053 for the first round, after you enjoy tonight’s set, selected by our GROWING COMMUNITY OF ADVENTUROUS LATE-NIGHT MUSIC LOVERS. BIG FREEDIA, ERASURE, GEORGE MICHAEL, THE GOSSIP, LIZZO, SISTER SLEDGE, and SOULWAX all round off this episode before we send you dancing into the night.
We make this MIDNIGHT LOOMS thing happen together!!!
