Episode 5: Wilco, tUnE-yArDs and Austra.
With 'The Whole Love', the boys in Wilco delivered one of the finest albums of their career. Jeff Tweedy and company join Jian to chat about that record and why the current Wilco lineup just might be the best.
Plus - Merrill Garbus, better known as tUnE-yArDs stops by Studio Q to perform songs from her ground breaking record 'Whokill'.
Also - Canadian electro-pop outfit Austra bring their sonically expansive new record 'Olympia' to Studio Q.
What is Q: The Music?
the years, an impressive array of gifted performers have made their way
through Studio Q. Collectively, they've created a music collection so
good that we just can't keep it to ourselves.
We've curated our favourite and most memorable performances into a brand new weekly program, Q: The Music, hosted by Jian Ghomeshi! The show, which premiered in September, airs at 7 p.m. across Canada on CBC Radio 2.
The shows aims to showcase living legends, buzz bands, and undiscovered artists outside the mainstream.
We hope Q: The Music
will be your Tuesday night go-to for a carefully curated mix of
established and up-and-coming artists, from within North America and far
beyond. A typical episode will feature three acts: one top-tier
performer; one rising star, and one act that might fall just on the
outside of the mainstream.
