Toronto musician and all-around-hottie TRUST (a.k.a. Robert Alfons) put together an absolutely stellar mix for The Hunger last Friday, and it’s pretty much the best damn thing I’ve heard in ages. In an interview with The Hunger, TRUST was asked when he whipped together this gem of a mixtape: “I made this mix while on tour in Europe. They’re all part of this hazy dream driving through all the neon.” When asked what inspired him to pursue music, Robert replies, “My older sister’s piano playing and record collection, my aunt’s car stereo, and the show ‘My So Called Life.'” And when The Hunger took note of Canada’s burgeoning reputable artists of-late, TRUST remarks, “There’s always been lots of really exciting music coming out of Canada, but I grew up here so I’ve always been a part of it. When I moved to Toronto I was so lucky to discover so many great artists and performers that have continued to inspire me.” You can read the full interview by visiting HungerTV.com. And the other day a friend of mine posted a link to an April 2007 live performance of “Hope There’s Someone” by Antony & The Johnsons and it’s been nestled in my mind ever since, so I had to share. I hope there’s someone out there who appreciates it as much as I do. Have an amazing weekend everybody!
