Show Notes

Ancient Raven Records is a new Gimli-based label releasing cassettes and vinyl.

I had a conversation with the label’s founder, Jønas Scott — who released one of my favourite local albums last year as Van Allen — about past, present and future projects, including Smoky Tiger tapes, a vinyl reissue of a 1970s Interlake classic, and much more.

Van Allen tracks are sprinkled throughout the conversation!

Full disclosure: Ancient Raven is releasing a remastered cassette of my old band, The Mouth-Boat, which you should all pick up now!

WR290: Joe Curtis at Mom's House

As many of you are likely aware, I've been guest-hosting a (video) show about local musicians from time to time. It's called 'Mom's House', and it's the brainchild of a group of up-and-coming Manitoba filmmakers called Young Media. We decided to use the interview portions of the episodes I host and release them in audio form as bonus podcasts! This first Witchpolice at Mom's House episode features a great conversation with local singer-songwriter [Joe Curtis](http://www.joecurtisband.com/). The audio you're about to hear is just my interview with Joe. To see the full Mom's House episode, which includes live performances, head down to [Young Media's website](http://weareyoungmedia.com/the-moms-house-sessions) or their [YouTube channel](http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDcPW3OBfNHoOitVKkGhSlQ) to check it out. It should be available on Sunday. ...

WR484: Mouth Feel

...so as some of you may have heard, I lost an entire episode the other day. The file was corrupted and despite multiple efforts, I could only recover 0:20 of it. The original podcast was a great conversation with two members of local punks [Mouth Feel](http://mouthfeelwpg.bandcamp.com/)... and while I can’t present that to you anymore, here's a quick chat with bassist/vocalist Matt, in a zombie podcast episode that also includes a stream of the entire [new Mouth Feel record](http://https://mouthfeelwpg.bandcamp.com/album/mouthfeel). I guess that’s sort of a win. Anyway, thanks to the band for their patience, and a big fuck you to my memory card for destroying the original file. This episode is brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/). Buy a gift card to help keep them afloat during these difficult times!
