Lemon is  a performer from Toronto. She has a music Tumblr (yay music bloggers!).

She posted a synthy dark spin on the Nirvana classic that this Gen-Xer…(or maybe I’m an old Millennial?) can get behind.

Trolling her Soundcloud page, I also really enjoyed this cover of Peter Bjorn and John’s “Young Folks” she did with Wolf Saga.

Cool. Go with yourself.

The dark pop continues to dominate today. Toronto’s Young Wolf Hatchlings (sometimes branded as YWH) sent over their remix of Tove Lo‘s red hot breakup jammer “Habits.”

They pitched the vocals way down low… added some guitar flourishes and little solo at the end. Nice.

YWH are Jarrel Young and Waqaas Hashmi. The duo met in University and have been producing out of TO’s Dream House Studio. That’s the place where the likes of The Weeknd, Crystal Castles and Metz go to record.

Things picked up for YWH when they worked with former Small Sins frontman Thomas D’Arcy to rework his cut “You Lovely You.”

I’m looking forward to YWH’s Party ep… fun electronic jams.

Funny story, I am out at The Station House pub on a Friday night.  Meet a couple rad Zoners and we get to talking about the “podcast where I lay down some sick beats.”  Oh Capital Rock City?

That’s the one.  The one guy tells me he downloaded it once and loved the music bed I used… OK, nice and the other guys says he follows it every week… but has never heard it!  He reads about it from my blog, Facebook, The Zone dot FM.

I wonder, are there others out there that follow Capital Rock City from the blog/facebook but don’t actually download the show?  Hey!  You’re the guy I need the MOST to take the next step in our relationship, I’m ready, you’re ready, let’s take this to second base and actually download Capital Rock City.

Slide your hand inside the bra of radio and download: Capital Rock City #72

And since we’re both feeling really sexy tonight, maybe you’ll consider subscribing using this handy dandy RSS feed or searching ‘Capital Rock City’ on iTunes and having the podcast delivered to your computer every week.

DJ Notes

01) The Paper Cranes – “Telephone”
02) Dan Kosub – “Blue and Gray”
03) Said the Whale – “Camilo (The Magician)”
04) We Are Seven – “Soul Fever”

Right, so this week I was supposed to have Saul on the show… pushed them back to next week.  This week I start by saying “Said the Wheel” instead of “Said the Whale.”  Ha, I talk for a living.

Miranda of The Paper Cranes comes on CRC 72 chit-chatting about the BREAKING NEWS that the pride of Esquimalt will now be a duo.  whoa.

Uh oh, I have to fire another fact checker here at Capital Rock City.  I asked for bands on Facebook and Jessica McCool sent me a link to one of her faves.  I assumed the dude was from Vic (or maybe Van or something) and included his music, which I thought was pretty good.  Turns out the man is from Toronto!  Zoinks, not very 100 mile audio diet of me.  My bad.  Talented song writer, very cordial in the emails we exchanged, so whatever.  Free song on a podcast.

* fun fact * Jessica McCool used to be a weekend announcer on The Zone circa… hmmm, 2003?  2004?

Said the Whale are great stuff…we did a show in the Sault! All the great West Coast music is making it really tempting for me to move back west.

Tyler from Said the Whale came on the show to talk about the character in his song “Camilo.”  He is a real dude and he performs magic card tricks at parties.

Look for Said the Whale in Victoria on September 24th playing in Element as part of the Rifflandia Festival.

We call CRC 72 a podcast with an acoustic ditty from We Are Seven.  cool band name, based on an olden days poem.

that’s all I got… oh, you know that band The Dudes?  Yeah check out their song “Connected.” They do a shout out to Victoria!  True story.

“I’ve been alive/2005 Victoria/I laid a lot of high fives”

I remember that!  The guys have always had a special place in their heart(s) for our Island city because they do some of their biggest crowds outside of Calgary here.  They too will be part of Rifflandia.  A Zoner called into the show letting me know about that.  thank you mystery Zoner person.

That’s all I got.  If you like the podcast or think maybe someone you know might, please share the link with a friend and I’ll talk at you next week.

Go with yourself.
