photoThis week was tons of fun on The Windsor Scene; the first time having a band in the studio in quite some time.

We Can Be Heroes is a local pop-punk outfit that recently recorded some new tracks with Brett Humber at Sound Foundry Studios in Kingsville. They came in to debut some of these tracks, as well as play a couple of them live on-air.

Coming up over the next few days are the CJAM Pledge Drive shows, where local bands will be playing live to help raise funds to keep the station running over the next year. Of particular note is the Measured in Angles show, where the band will be playing for the first time in nearly ten years. Joining them will be What Seas, What Shores and Learning. This all goes down on Saturday, November 2 at FM Lounge (156 Chatham St. W.) at 10 p.m., and admission is $5 at the door.

This week gave me the opportunity to play all sorts of cool new music from the out-of-town bands that are visiting over the next seven days,  and even the awesome local acts that have got new shows coming up and new albums. But my favourite track was Popular music by Notes To Self. This Toronto-based hip-hop group is roughly a decade old and puts out some catchy and original tracks.

I was also excited to play Matt Lalonde‘s solo stuff on the show.  You might be more familiar with him as the skinny dreadlocked guitar player for local hip-hip heavyweights Mic Lordz and Sauce Funky. His new music, however, has that indie-acoustic vibe with some awesomely layered backing vocals and expertly played acoustic guitar.
