The Weather Station & Jennifer Castle Collaboration Featured On Polaris Podcast EP 20

Polaris Podcast EP7 was live from Ottawa.

The 20th episode of the Polaris Podcast focused on a recent Polaris Collaboration Session between past nominees The Weather Station and Jennifer Castle.

The acts record two songs — The Weather Station’s “I Tried to Wear the World (feat. Jennifer Castle)” and Jennifer Castle’s “Midas Touch (feat. The Weather Station).” They’re available on streaming services and will become a Record Store Day Canada promotional item in 2019.

This and other Polaris Podcast episodes can be found on iTunes, Google Play or Spotify.

I was once again employed by the Polaris Music Prize this year leading up to and during 2015 Polaris Gala which was won by Buffy Sainte-Marie for her album Power In The Blood.

Buffy’s as deserving as anyone, but the real ace moments on the night were, for me, in order:

3. Host Fred Penner attempting a song medley highlighting all nine previous Polaris winners, including Tagaq and Godspeed You Black Emperor.

2. Alvvays performing a shimmering “Archie, Marry Me.”

1. Jennifer Castle’s epic rendition of “Sparta” backed by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

Read a recap of the evening here.
