Today's New Track: Jennifer Castle

Jennifer Castle - "Sparta" (Idée Fixe Records): Buffy Sainte-Marie won the Polaris Prize on Monday night but Jennifer Castle and ensemble's performance with members of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra was unquestionably one of the highlights of the two-plus hour show at The Carlu in Toronto. She captures a noble majesty in her music. As musician/writer John Crossingham wrote in FYI on Monday: " (her Pink City album is) like a lost relic from Canada’s first golden era of folk pop a la Joni, Leonard, Gordon, and Neil. In short, it’s both 1971 good and 2015 good."
