Sense Of Place: Toronto - Phedre Another Highly Recommended New Band

We have another World Cafe: Next band from Toronto for our Sense of Place series on that Canadian city. They are the synth-laden oozy outrageousness of Phedre.
Singer Daniel Lee and bassist April Aliermo named the band after Nancy Sinatra’s alter-ego in the classic duet with Lee Hazelwood, “Some Velvet Morning.” They released their second album Golden Age this fall.
