Darkness Falls – October 28, 2020

| Radio

This week was our last week before the election, a scary time, and never mind Halloween. We chose to ignore all that and just play music. 😉 Faves of the week: A Tribe Called Red’s new track “Land Back” which uses traditional native American singers in an unusual hiphop context. Kiwi Jr, just signed by a minor major, gave us another winner with “Undecided Voters.” And The Creachies, who are neither British nor a girl group, supplied seasonal flavor with “One of the Vampire Girls.”

One of The Courtneys has moved on to greener pastures, leaving Vancouver for LA and founding a new band called Gum Country. Her new song “There’s a Crumb” shows promise, although it’s not quite up to the level of “Silver Velvet.” Yellow Days contend that “Love Is Everywhere” — would that it were true! And Superbravo remind us that they’re still endlessly hummable with “Anoucka.”

Also, new music from Bootsy (“The Power of the One”) and new releases from Prince’s Sign of the Times mega set.

And that, dear friends, is how things are here in late October 2020. Read on for all the details.
