We breeze through today’s show with Andrew Gregg about his documentary WIND RUSH, which airs on CBC February 7, 2013 at 9pm. Andrew interviews residents who seem to be experiencing what might be described as “turbine syndrome“. A blustery issue which we talk about for the first half of the program. After the break, we talk to Laura Tozer, Director of Operations for Community Energy Partnerships Program (CEPP). Laura joins us to talk about her masters thesis paper: Community Energy Plans in Canadian Cities: Success and Barriers in Implementation.

We Can Never Have It All – Old English

Old English’s debut album Prose and Kahns finally drops February 5th.  An 80s synth-pop vibe between electronic/shoegaze lines meets contemplative musings, resulting in an album befitting a night stretched out on the bed chatting with an old friend.  The Toronto CD release party happens February 8th at The Annex Live with a collective of incredible indie openers in tow.  In the meantime, you can snag a pre-release sampler featuring We Can Never Have It All from Bandcamp!

Shadow Of A Ghost – Emma-Lee

In honour of the remake of The Evil Dead and a general love of zombies, allow me to turn you onto Emma-Lee’s sultry folk-rock single Shadow Of A Ghost.  Winning coolest video of 2012 for its “when moshpit zombies attack!” theme, the song itself is the perfect “love sucks” sass for the forthcoming Hallmark holiday of hearts and arrows. Backseat Heroine’s a solid album, but this one’s my favourite.

Leave The Light On – Magneta Lane

Toronto’s Magneta Lane is a trio of women with a bad reputation Joan Jett would be proud of.  Perhaps that’s why they’ve elected to name their forthcoming EP Witchrock.  Returning to the music scene after a youth of quick success, burnout and struggles many indie musicians know well, the band is poised to reclaim their place in the spotlight with a solid riff and dark-edged vocals reminiscent of early Veruca Salt.  Produced by members of Finger Eleven, Witchrockdrops February 12th, with the release party on Valentine’s Day in Toronto (The Rivoli).
