OG Melody - Take You Home

Shutting down Bloor from Dufferin to Lansdowne, BIG on Bloor landed in the midst of a heatwave that made an afternoon tour down the middle of the street feel like a field trip to the surface of the sun. Things were more tolerable under the leafy trees at St. Clarens, where one of the day's stages was quite excellently curated by Justin from Holy Oak. Hewing towards funky and r'n'b sounds, this felt like a mini-block party within the larger event. This longstanding slo-jam duo from Isla Craig and Thom Gill seems to exist in a form of infrequently-interrupted hiatus, but like an Ontario apricot, OG Melody can suddenly appear in the midst of a hot, dry season to provide some sweet, juicy relief.
