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

Happy Long Weekend, Canadian Green Majority listeners! (Happy weekend all the same to the rest of you!)

It’s back to school time, summer’s last hurrah against the impending Autumn (my favourite season), and a time for reflecting on the year so far.  The seasons have changed over the years, but I’m grateful we do still have them for now.

Calgary-based band Locomotive Ghost also appreciates the seasons that turn, turn, turn.  Their latest musical project:  a series of seasonal EPs, one per season.  Locomotive Ghost writes folk-rock for nerds and lovers, according to their press release, and they’re not kidding:  their Summer EP rocks tracks like “Dog Days” and “Isaac Newton” side by side.  Folky, reflective tunes that evoke sun and a struggle to hang onto the more innocent part of the heart are the core of their tunes.

To bid farewell to the seasons of beginnings and bad burger ideas at the CNE, check out “Dog Days” and “This Damn Addiction” and then saunter on over to their site for a bigger taste of this entirely DIY project from an ambitious indie quartet.

Speaking of indies, Harper’s Conservatives are pushing for unreasonable fees that will make it nearly impossible for smaller bars and music venues across the country to bring in international talent which, in turn, diminishes opportunities for Canadian indies.

Bad scene all around.

Take a peek at the petition below, and help us save the indie music scene.
