Listen to the January 18, 2015, episode of the Strombo Show.
"Hold your breath a little longer. Let's go dancing underwater."
The Strombo Show ran the gamut this Sunday night, keeping the spirit of radio alive by delivering the best records in the best order. It's a show for music lovers by music lovers, ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new.
George Stroumboulopoulos was joined by Brave Shores for a feature interview and solo performance from his home.
Brave Shores are a Toronto-based electro-pop group made up of siblings Jay and Stefanie McCarrol. They've received a heavy dose of praise for their euphoric, accessible melodies and '80s-influenced chord melodies that accompany their eponymous debut EP.
Although this collection of hooks and harmonies is a starting point for their collaboration, they've previously shared stages with some of our nation's most celebrated acts including Feist, Hayden, Zeus, Rich Aucoin and the Golden Dogs.
Also, our friends Biz Markie and Leah Fay of July Talk visit to spin some records.
As always, we tipped our hats to those groundbreakers and game-changers with a Nod to the Gods, spun the best new tracks, paid tribute to Tom Waits on Ten with Tom and we'll send you into the horizontal with the Big Lie Down.
Lock it. Crank it. Join the collective!
