1. An unreleased track of ours called Seed is on this week’s Midnight Poutine podcast. Check it!

2. Google Earth images of bridges, from Debbie So: “Back to Google Earth – for some reason when they try to capture bridges, everything get’s distorted and you end up with this surreal landscape. The phenomenon is beautifully documented by in their series, Postcards from Google Earth: Bridges.”
