Jim turns his “excuse generator” off and joins Patrick for another awesome week of Rockin’ the Suburbs! They kick things off by taking a look at some new music that came out back in June. Jim has the honors.
FUN FACT: The lyrics of “Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)” convey mixed messages that could be interpreted as both lively and gloomy. When asked about covering the Arcade Fire track, Weaves lead singer Jasmyn Burke said, in an interview with noisey,
“I think ‘Neighborhood # 3 (Power Out)’ seems more pertinent than ever, so in Weaves fashion we spent a weekend working on it, and then just went into the studio and recorded it pretty freely. I think this song keeps breathing and growing over time and I guess that’s the magic of revisiting ones favourite albums.”
