Alex Lukashevsky - Back to the River

Full review to follow. The basic idea here — having Toronto musicians pay tribute to the songs of other Toronto musicians — is something I can get behind as a musical locavore, so I was sad to have missed the first night in this series back in summertime. Fortunately that went over well enough to bring about a second instalment — and word on the street is that we can expect another come January.

Anna Siddall's The Day has been one of my autumn faves, finely-honed pop that doesn't flaunt its slightly-bent sophistication. It's the sort of thing that would have slipped under my radar were it not being raved about by a lot of musicians (some of whom played on it), so perhaps it's befitting that it gets surveyed here by another of the city's most prominent "musician's musicians".
