So Good playlist for Nov. 13


Exciting day on the show today — the first time I’ve had official guests in the studio, and it was New York synth-pop duo Tanlines (who are playing tonight at Commonwealth as part of their one-year anniversary party that’s going all week, and you should go check it out. Calgary’s Gold is opening. It’ll be good). They talked a bit about their new video (coming soon), their view of Canadian sports on TV, and Nate Silver’s drunken tweets — pretty normal band stuff, in other words.

Outside of that, the show started with a nod to the German travelogue that ended off Nathan’s show, went through a few food-oriented songs and ended with another visit to Kid Koala’s 12-Bit Blues, easily the Kid’s most listenable solo album in recent memory. No links this time (I’m in a bit of a rush), but you folks know how to use Google. I’m sure you’ll manage. Rainy Milo and Rhye in particular are worth tracking down, and should have some free EPs online, so do have a look around.
