From Mud Records and good ole country to 18th century veils and euro-pop...

Adaline2.JPG... we've got it all this week on Bandwidth!

 

This blurry iPhone picture doesn't do Adaline's dress justice... but luckily, her amazingly catchy dance-pop music is perfect for radio. I chat with her about her new album, Modern Romantics, and what it was like to work with producer Hawksley Workman. Adaline also announced this week that she'll be on the super-cool "Tracks on Tracks" train this summer (trains and Canadian music, can it get any better?!)

 

Brock Zeman also stops in to talk about his new label, Mud Records, and the musicians who are on it -- Robert Larisey and Brothers Through the Hill.

 

This weekend is the 8th annual Jack Richardson Music Awards in London, Ont. -- and we caught up with contemporary singer/songwriter nominee Samantha Hooey. You can also find all of the awards' perfomers and all of the nominees at the official site.

 

In other Bandwidth news -- we got a Facebook page, just like the cool kids! Be sure to like us at facebook.com/bandwidthcbc (and don't forget to follow us on Twitter @bandwidthcbc). Any questions or comments on how we could make Facebook, Twitter, or the site better? Give us a shout -- by FB, Twitter or email at bandwidth@cbc.ca.

 

Next week is Record Store Day -- also known as Christmas in April for music geeks. We're working on something special for the show in honour of it, so be sure to tune in!

 

Have a great weekend and see you next week!

 

Meg.
