MURRAY & NATALIA & STROMBO
Can’t come to the show? That’s OK. Canadians should stay at home Wednesday November 20th and watch George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight at 7PM. Murray, Natalia and comedian Ali Hassan are on The Panel talking about working couples. http://www.cbc.ca/strombo/schedule
SPEAKING OF WHICH
Natalia is among the “touring moms” interviewed in Come Worry with Us!, a documentary that follows Thee Silver Mt Zion on tour with their son. The trailer almost gave me (Natalia) PTSD when I watched it. http://comeworrywithus.ca/

Murray Lightburn’s debut solo album is something of a departure from his work with The Dears, the Montréal-based outfit he has headed for 18 years and five albums. Firstly, for MASS:LIGHT, Lightburn played all the instruments, constructing all the album’s sounds, save for some strings and brass. (via Murray A.
