Vintage Cafe Revisits Toronto’s Alvvays From Way Back In January

We welcome back the Toronto band Alvvays today for our Vintage Cafe. We first hears about them on our Sense Of Place trip to Toronto in 2013 when Frank Yang from the new music blog Chromewaves singled them out. Since then, and even since this was originally broadcast in January, good things have been happening for this upbeat new wave-ish band powered by the songs of Molly Rankin, particularly with the song they will do for us today “Archie, Marry Me.”

Session Setlist

Recent Release: Alvvays
Release Date: July 22, 2014
Label: Polyvinyl Records
