Ever since the Edmonton electro-indie outfit Shout Out Out Out Out invited Edmonton Ward 6 Councillor Scott McKeen on stage at the Legislature grounds, the fervent local music supporter has kept a soft spot in his ears for the group. He especially likes this track, "Now That I've Given Up Hope, I Feel Much Better", the title of which relates to his main Councillor initiative, mental health. McKeen speaks to that, as well as the loss of the band's creative space in the city's maligned Graphic Arts building in this episode of the Capital City Records podcast.
Way back in July, the CKUA crew met with Corb Lund in his trailer before his Calgary Folk Fest Sunday night show and recorded what was technically the very first Capital City Records podcast pick. The recording was then buried beneath a pile of Folk Fest performance, concert and interview recordings before finally being unearthed to become the tenth Capital City Records Song of the Week. Here it is, Corb Lund on Choir Marching Band's "So Duh Pop Song".
CKUA morning announcer Grant Stovel was feeling worldly when selecting this Song of the Week. Here it is, "A Bellavista" by the Marco Claveria Project, a tune that gets lodged in Grant's head "for weeks at a time."
“Talking, laughing, crashing waves” - find out what it is about the album north of fifty-four by Sirch. that catches Mid-Morning Mojo announcer Baba’s interest.
