Llama farms and sailors – Phantom Shores live at CHUO & April 6th show rundown

Many thanks again to local folks Phantom Shores for stopping by the CHUO studios this weekend — Craig, Celeste, Renee and Dave were a pleasure to have on the show. Like I said earlier, on-air: if you took The Deep Dark Woods, added a little bit of Ohbijou, sent them to the east coast and had ’em rock out a bit more, you’d get Phantom Shores. If you didn’t get a chance to catch their set on air today, check out the individual tracks below. (Update: in case you missed it on-air, Phantom Shores is indeed made up of former members of Jetplanes of Abraham — for any of you fans out there wondering what some of ’em were up to!)

Phantom Shores – Walking in the Night, live at CHUO

Phantom Shores – The Night Watch Patrol, live at CHUO

Phantom Shores – Great Bind, live at CHUO

And of course, what we spun:

The Acorn – Crossed Wires
Dora Alexander – Marlboro Friday
Behind Sapphire – Big Steps
White Sea – Mountaineer
PS I Love You – 2012
My Dad vs Yours – Ghost Horse
Phantom Shores – Walking in the Night (Live at CHUO)
Phantom Shores – The Night Watch Patrol (Live at CHUO)
The Lindbergh Line – Dame City
Phantom Shores – Great Bind (Live at CHUO)
