Whitehorse in conversation and Windsor harvests the FAM

... Wait, it's October already? Well, lucky for you, the best way to enjoy the fall weather is to slip on a sweater and curl up with Whitehorse's new album, The Fate of the World Depends on This Kiss. Today, I've got a chat with the duo of Melissa McClelland and Luke Doucet (left) -- we talk everything from how the album got its dramatic name to what it's REALLY like for the married couple when they're in the studio recording.

 

Along with the interview, you'll hear part of the band's awesome CBC Music Cabin Rehearsals, recorded at a cabin on Lake Eerie. Find the whole session here, and check out one of the videos here:

 

 

 

This weekend and next, Windsor's in full festival mode as Harvesting the FAM hits the city. Allison Brown, singer-songwriter and freelancer extraordinaire, gives us a taste of what the festival's like. Check out the Harvesting the FAM website for a full lineup.

 

And contests, contests, contests! Ottawa listeners, be sure to check out the Lynn Miles contest on the All in a Day website to win a chance to sing live on stage with Lynn later this month.
