WR672: Some Music Can Hurt You

On this one, I talked about grindcore, noise, and other extreme sounds with Lilliana Vess of Some Music Can Hurt You, a local tape label that caters to all things abrasive and gruesome.We talked about running a cassette label - both during and pre-pandemic, using medical imagery on album covers, scaring off audiences while performing live, that Garfield thing, and much more!

WR667: Jessee William (and Jordan Voth)

At first glance, Jessee William might seem like the quintessential hardcore kid — but looks can be deceiving, as dude just released a killer country EP, “Headwinds”.We talk about the parallels between punk and country, giving the record some lush pedal steel courtesy of Rory Verbrugge… and working with Jordan Voth (who is also featured in an interview at the end of the episode), who brings a decidedly non-country production aesthetic to the proceedings.
