Back in 2015, we partnered up with the great Toronto radio host/encyclopedia of music/maker of a mean lasagna (from what I hear), Luca Capone and hosted some episodes of his weekly radio program The Night Shift. We recently reached out to Luca to see if he would be interested in teaming up with us again and he was! So keep your eyes and ears open for more great content from Luca.
Tune into The Night Shift every Wednesday from 9-11 PM on CJRU 1280 AM.
On this episode of The Night Shift, I had the super pleasure of chatting with the illuminating Isla Craig, who has a fantastic new album, The Becoming out now on Pleasence Records! And so, we talked about how The Becoming represents “the ability to transform ourselves, shed our skin and come out of something that is difficult to become different version of ourselves”, the album cover depicting the inner world in all of its sensual and guttural colour and glory, sharing nuances and sharp sensibilities with Prince Nifty, her nickname in an alternate dimension as a famous soccer player, being transfixed by the beautiful singers within the old school Reggae music canon, another tale about one of Toronto’s lost cosmic-spirit supergroups, writing a song specifically for the lighting-like voice of a luminous Halifax experimental pop musician, which Toronto folk legend’s music has entered the ‘classic Toronto anthem’ category, the quadratic complex formula behind cracking up a pomegranate, and OTHER STORIES FOR FANS OF MUSIC, ADVENTURE, AND JOKE-MAKING!
