Artist: Fiver

Song: Rage of Plastics

Recorded at Christie Pits Park – Garden Stage (Bloor Ossington Folk Festival V), September 19, 2015.

Fiver - Rage of Plastics

You can read my general notes on the festival here. Bringing an entirely-different band than she had at last year's BOFF, Simone Schmidt was backed here by Highest Order bandmate Paul Mortimer on guitar, plus Fake Palms' Mike Le Riche on bass and Nick Kervin (of B-17/Mimico) on drums. The latter, filling in for a touring Simone T-B, is especially felt on this better-living-through-chemistry lament, offering steady beats like a grim metronome ticking ever-closer to toxic overload. (At the start of the song, Schmidt sends a shout-out to ASAP, members of Aamjiwnaang First Nation who are organizing against "the toxic reality of living in Chemical Valley".)
