Selections were:

goodnight, sunrise with “Love fortress #9”

DJ Amber Waves comments: I love this band, local to Toronto.  Amazing live show and just great people.  They’re giving away their EP below on Bandcamp and are recording an album right now.  If Heart and ZZ Top made children together, they might just sound like this.”

and

Avery Island with “Lock Me Up”

DJ Amber Waves comments: “Discovered this band at NXNE this year…  love the harmonies.  They’re from Whitby.  Prog elements in the guitar… influenced by Brand New, for sure, but there’s thoughtful songwriting that conjures a worldview of the early Springsteen vein.”
