First Aid Kit, Paul Shaffer + Twist

First Aid Kit’s Klara and Johanna Söderberg return with their fourth album, “Ruins” born in some self-described millennial restlessness, time away and a series of collaborations with members of R.E.M. and Wilco. In conversation with George, the sisters unravel the process of returning, modern femininity and the choice to have their father behind the sound boards on the road.

Paul Shaffer is best known as Letterman’s right-hand musical force, but it doesn’t end there – he dedicates his time to countless charities, wrote “It’s Raining Men”, turned down the offer to be George Constanza on Seinfeld, and is the man responsible for the Blues Brothers band. The list goes on. Shaffer calls George from New York to dig into his relationship with the Blues Brothers, his project with Toronto’s CAMH, reminisces about that iconic Godspell production and what next for the icon.

Twist is multi-instrumentalist and producer Laura Hermiston. She took a moment from preparing her next album with Holy Fuck’s Brian Borcherdt to rip through a few songs in the House Of Strombo, following her charming cover of Wham!’sLast Christmas” on our Holiday special.

We’ll deliver 3-hours of uninterrupted music for music lovers by music lovers, including premieres of new music from Zoe Sky Jordan.
