TGM Radio – April 05, 2013 – Relax! Have a Drink! Can’t We Be Friends?

Brewers Plate Toronto
Brewers Plate Toronto

We’re all over the place today with food, animal rights and hydrogen fuel technology!

We start the program with Barry Martin, organizer for the Brewers Plate here in Toronto, an annual culinary event that celebrates local food issues by eating and drinking with friends.

Half way through the show Kevin and I talk about a reaction that surprised me, (but I understand) to a post from a TGM listener on our Facebook wall. The post was related to animal right issues and the controversial group ALF (Animal Liberation Front). Our punditry section half way through the show was referencing this Facebook post and this article if your interested. If you have a comment add it too the Facebook page or email us!

We wrap up the show with an interesting conversation about hydrogen technology for cars with Sandro Diclemente.

ALSO! We forgot to plug our friends event, if you’re in Toronto for Saturday April 13th check out a fun underwear clad event with Run For The Earth.

This Weeks Music! Brought to you by DJ Amber Waves at Open til’ Midnight:

Oh my god, did I see sunshine today?  Legit hints of spring in the air?  Fingers crossed!  In the meantime, let’s stay warm by dancing.

Knives – The Box Tiger

As we lead up to the release of a full album proper later this year, The Box Tiger unleashes a new single to keep music fans sated, and it’s as catchy as the last.  Knives delivers the same vocals sliding up and down the scales, belting at will to punctuate the pop-infused indie rock vibe.  It’s like the sonic equivalent of a hipster that doesn’t take herself too seriously.  It’s also a free download, which is always nice (although you could name a price higher than zero and support indie music!).

Railroad (On My Mind) – City And The Sea

While OTM was roaming Canadian Music Week, City and the Sea’s new EP Action Figures lay waiting for attention.  What a welcome treat as a reward!  Like lead single “Strange Feeling”, “Railroad (On My Mind)” conjures up the best of the bluesy rock that infused the mid-90s through early 2000’s with its wanderlust mantra.  Escape with music!

Year Of The Rat – Enter The Haggis

Cool story about Toronto band Enter The Haggis’ latest album The Modest Revolution:  the entire thing is written about the contents of a single issue of The Globe And Mail.  With their Celtic flair and tongues firmly in cheek at just the right moments, they deliver songs inspired by obituaries, the sports section and the 2012 budget.  Swing by Soundcloud and enjoy several free downloads and more to stream.

Happy listening!
