Sweet stuff!Toronto homegirl Lydia Ainsworth's new album "Darling of the Afterglow" is just absolutely fucking fantastic. Unless something else Canadiana comes along this year that's even more epic, this album has a lock on the 'Best Alternative' Juno, and will likely be shortlisted for the Polaris Prize.
Lydia Ainsworth threw her hat into the ring as being the Canadiana alt-music artist to beat. And I'm looking around, and I see no other contenders. Ok fine, 'Mozart's Sister''s new album is pretty good, but pretty good don't stand up to Epic. Seriously, Canada has our own little miss Florence/Machine-BatferLashes/Kate Bush lady here. And it hits the sweet spot.Sweet stuff!
