The Strombo Show: Lindi Ortega and Dan Deacon


The Strombo Show r​an​ the gamut this Sunday night, keeping the spirit of radio alive by delivering the best records in the best order. It’s a show for music lovers by music lovers, ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new.

George Stroumboulopoulos is joined by singer-songwriter Lindi Ortega ahead of her fourth album in four years, Faded Gloryville. We have a handful of exclusive premieres, performances of tracks from the album and a cover of the Bee Gees’ “To Love Somebody,” plus an intimate conversation that explores Ortega’s transition from Toronto to Nashville.

Dan Deacon took the helm of his latest album, Gliss Riffer, which is entirely self-produced and self-recorded. While in the middle of the project, he was personally invited to open for Arcade Fire on tour. Deacon spent his momentum balanced between the stage and the green room, where he’d mix and arrange the album. On Sunday he performed in the House of Strombo’s kitchen, ground broken by the great Mix Master Mike earlier in May.

Also, the Sheepdogs’ frontman Ewan Currie professes his love for Neil Young.
