Midnight Looms 045 – THANYA IYER – April 6 2021

It’s good to be back! Five weeks off and now we’re thrilled to be back on air for our weekly JOURNEY-BY-DJ FOR ADVENTUROUS LATE-NIGHT MUSIC LOVERS. We have officially unlocked the next phase of this program. Tonight, for the first time, we’re together for a full 90 minutes instead of the 1 hr program that you will find if you dive into the archive. To celebrate, we have such an amazing artist gracing us with her virtual presence. Coming to us via Zoom from her home in Montreal, it’s THANYA IYER. An artist who defies categorization, but if we had to describe it we’d say she makes AVANTE BAROQUE ART POP with heavy NEO CLASSICAL and JAZZ elements. Eccentric indeed, and we like eccentric.

Our host, GOBS, matches Thanya’s vibe with a selection NEW sounds by Canadian artists, all featuring strong, proud, female voices. Contributions from BERNICE, EL MICHELS AFFAIR, EVE PARKER FINLEY, THE FLOWERS OF HELL, JEEN, MISE EN SCENE, PURLIEU ft. O’HAARA, SHN SHN, WORMWOOD, YARDS, and this months SYN (SONG YOU NEED), by Montreal based, Algonquin, two-spirited writer and composer, KIZIS.

New, exceptional, passionate, boundary pushing music. That’s what we’re all about and now we get to give you even more of it. This is MIDNIGHT LOOMS.
