Ep. #155: The Weather Station

Tamara Lindeman is a captivating singer and vivid lyricist who operates under the moniker the Weather Station. Currently based in Toronto, Lindeman has been a member of notable bands like Entire Cities, Bruce Peninsula, and Marine Dreams and she has collaborated with Baby Eagle, Bahamas, Doug Paisley, Siskiyou, and more. She recently released a beautiful observational EP called What Am I Going to Do with Everything I Know, which is out now on the fine North American label, You’ve Changed Records, and precedes the spring release of her next full-length album, Loyalty. The Weather Station are playing a song or two on my Long Night talk show at Long Winter at the Great Hall in Toronto on Friday January 9 at around 8:00 PM and here we discuss relationship tension, narrative and personal songwriting, Steven Lambke’s ingenious songwriting as Baby Eagle, working with Daniel Romano who’s a doer, growing up outside of Orangeville, not really listening to good music until moving to Toronto, cultural isolation, learning to play and write late in life, a secret life as a thespian, Tilda Swinton, The Murdoch Mysteries, AC/DC and High Voltage, hints about the new album Loyalty, the song “What Am I Going to Do (With Everything I Know),” and much more than I had the time to write about this morning.
