SOUND OPINIONS WEEKLY RUNDOWN, 11/11/2016, SO_0111116

ANNOUNCER COPY: Coming up… hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot take a sonic tour of Canada and discuss the country’s music scene, from Drake to Rush. Later, they review the new record from singer and songwriter Alejandro Escovedo.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

FEATURE: Hosts Jim and Greg are taking listeners on a musical tour of Canada! They’ll take the pulse of the Canadian scene with their colleague at the Toronto Star, Ben Rayner, and revisit interviews with Canadian musicians they’ve had on the show like Arcade Fire and Rush.

ALBUM REVIEW:

The hosts review the new record from Mexican American artist Alejandro Escovedo. Escovedo takes inspiration from the musical style of Lou Reed, while discussing the hardships he’s had to overcome in recent years on his latest effort Burn Something Beautiful. DESERT ISLAND JUKEBOX This week, Jim puts a quarter in the desert island jukebox and chooses the song “Hyper Faster” from the Canadian stoner metal band Sheavy. While the Newfoundland group lost steam in 2004 after its leader departed, this 2000 track is perfect for a trip to the desert island.
