Toronto synth-pop band DIANA took advantage of the setting and holiday to unveil a brand new cover of Brian Eno's "Here Come The Warm Jets." In a great edition of Essential Albums, DIANA's Kieren Adams told us he admired Eno's ability to make "pop [music] that doesn't seem confined to pop songs," and this set was the perfect place to put that philosophy into practice. (And their money is where their mouth is; singer/guitarist Carmen Elle spent a good part of the set inquiring as to the whereabouts of "the Beyoncé record.") It doesn't hurt that Eno's slow-burning ambient swell fits DIANA like a glove.
Watch DIANA play "Here Come The Warm Jets" above, and then a couple bonuses below: DIANA playing then-new "Foreign Installation" in their then-boiling practice space, and "Anna" live at Wavelength FOURTEEN. DIANA's debut album Perpetual Surrender is out now on Paper Bag/Jagjaguwar.
Thank you to Sonic Boom for having us, Pistonhead Lager for bringing that delicious beer, and our performers for their great music. Stay tuned for more videos from Record Store Day every day this week.
