Midnight Looms 021 – POLARIS SHORTLIST & BLM REQUEST LINE – August 5 2020




This is a program where we appreciate music as art. Here in Canada, we have an annual prize called the POLARIS and it is the ultimate award for artistic excellence in Canadian music. The short list has been released for this year, and we’re using the first half hour of the episode to play you a tune from each of the 10 albums on that list. Lots of shows will be showcasing music from the Polaris short list over the coming weeks, but none of them are gonna do it like this. Our host, GOBS, makes it all flow into a journey by DJ for adventurous late-night music lovers!The second half of the program is spent giving thanks to, and playing requests from, people that contributed to our MATCHED DONATION FUNDRAISER for BLM CANADA. The resulting set list is KILLER! 12 songs about freedom, justice, protest, hope and change. Featuring tunes by THE HONEY DRIPPERS, LE TIGRE, PUBLIC ENEMY, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, RUN THE JEWELS, SAM COOKE, WHITNEY HOUSTON, and X CLAN, with NEW MUSIC from BACKXWASH, CARIBOU, JESSIE REYEZ, JUNIA-T, LIDO PIMIENTA, PANTAYO, WITCH PROPHET, U.S. GIRLS and MORE!! Things always turn out do good when we build these CRAZY 88 PLAYLISTS together.
