Show Notes

On June 8, the Winnipeg music scene lost a friend. Chad Alsop, guitarist/vocalist of sludge/metal/hardcore/whatever-core act Dead Ranch passed a few days after sustaining serious injuries. (You can read more about Chad in this [beautifully-written post on Dead Ranch's Facebook page](https://www.facebook.com/deadranch/posts/2046928851999929)). In addition to his contributions as 1/4 of one of Winnipeg's best bands, Chad was also a familiar face in Witchpoliceland. He appeared on the podcast with Dead Ranch twice (most recently back in April) and was a key member of our first-ever Big Mix-Up band at the Park Theatre in 2016. When Chad first appeared on the podcast in spring 2014, Witchpolice was still starting to get off the ground, so a lot of newer listeners likely haven't heard it. It was recorded in former co-host Jon's basement (a/k/a The Blanket Fort), and it followed the old 'song selection' format the show used to have. We'll be back next week (or maybe even sooner...I might double-up on episodes this week if I have time) with some fresh content from 2017, but for now, enjoy this one from the archives. RIP Chad. You'll be missed. (Support Chad's memorial fund: )

WR403: Heartsleeve

The fellas in [Heartsleeve](http://www.facebook.com/heartsleevemb) may be relatively new to the local scene, but they have their banjos n’ mandos n’ more sound well honed. I hung out with them in a terrifying (yet lovely) porch in the middle of nowhere for a conversation about their folk-with-a-twist sound, covering the Mars Volta with a banjo, playing as a full band vs. basic acoustic duos or trios, and much more. Plus, they performed four songs live, and since they don't have any formal recordings out yet... this may be one of the only places you can hear them. For now, anyway. This episode is brought to you by [Howl at the Moon](http://howlatthemoonfest.com/), Manitoba’s newest and most exciting country music festival, by Osborne Village’s new pop-up record store, [Old Gold Vintage Vinyl](http://www.instagram.com/oldgoldvintagevinyl204/),and by our pals at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/). ...
