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

So… Rob Ford.

Do I really need to say anything at all? Life in Toronto has become a twisted Advent Calendar: every day, another little door opens and out tumbles Rob Ford failure. I take heart that our council is doing  its best to get important work done in spite of the chaos.

Before we break to the music picks of the week, a friendly reminder for the locals that the TTC Budget is on top November 18th and transit supporters are speaking up against the proposed hikes, particularly   in light of chronic under-funding and overcrowded service. There’s a petition ongoing as well, which I encourage you to sign: today/

And now, a little music to capture the mood.

Vancouver’s Data Romance is stunning in its electronic ethereal way and often haunting. Taking those   breathy vocals to a special terrain with style, their cover of Tom Waits’ “Clap Hands” is a worthy take   on the original.  

For a more… aggressive approach to coping with Ford, might I suggest Ottawa’s Amos The   Transparent? Their song “Convince The Mayor” is particularly fun to rock out to these days. Check it   out.

Stay warm, Green Majority!
