This past Monday, May 14th was band day on the Stroumboulopoulos show. Danielle Duval and her band played in the morning, and Wintersleep played in the afternoon! Danielle’s performance will air this Friday May 18th, Wintersleep will air next week on Friday May 25th!
I loved the 2 new songs Wintersleep played, and Loel’s drums sounded great! I’d estimate that I’ve seen an average of 10 live bands a week, for the past couple of years and “drum tones” are not usually something that crosses my mind, but wow. It could have something to do with the way they were mic-ed, but he’s playing on an old Gretsch kit from the 70’s, so I don’t think I’m just imagining it.
