A two hour show since Andrea was in Vancouver...Actually, it was a 1 hour 45 minute show because we were late. That was a first. Eric Kaluzny joined me in the studio from Ontario and brought some good (soulful) tunes and banter along with him. He's back on the show this Sunday.

Paper Bag Records just gave a proper release to Laura Barrett's Earth Sciences EP. Laura Barrett plays the kalimba, also known as an African thumb piano. She is a classically trained musician from Toronto and is a member of the Hidden Cameras. She also sings songs about robot ponies and covers Weird Al.

Xiu Xiu covers Freddie Mercury and David Bowie!
