Once you get your head around the idea that former members of a Weakerthans cover band based out of Winnipeg have an achingly beautiful song about a landmark Toronto transit line, Kakagi and “Spadina Streetcar” makes absolute, perfect sense. On schedule and without delay, “Spadina Streetcar” rolls through legendary stations and intersections, spiriting a pair of longing lovers closer together with every clickety-clack of the mechanical tracks. It’s the kind of ride you want to go on forever if only to linger with the romantic ache of anticipation just a few stops longer.
