Show Notes

Our guest this week was Damian Purdy, whose excellent album as Ripping Hammer has been consistently popular here on Witchpolice and is one of my personal favourite recordings on the entire site. Download it. Seriously. It's great. This week also marked the first four-host episode, with the original three (me, Rob and Jon) back together again alongside our guest. Expect more of this, as we're moving from a "guests sometimes" format to a "guests every episode" format.

WR044: Crooked Brothers / Mahogany Frog

Jon, solo-hosting this week, is joined by two Jesses: returning guest Jesse Matas of the Crooked Brothers and Jesse Warkentin of Mahogany Frog. They talk the "sushi" theme and listen to a ton of crazy Japanese music.   Matas, of course, is a long-time friend of the show who appeared on a two-part episode of the podcast earlier in the summer, and has a bunch of music on the blog. Warkentin, on the other hand, is a member of Jon's favourite local psych-y/rock-y/synth-y band. ...

WR326: Sebastian Owl

After eight years and six albums, '70s pop-inspired folk-rockers [Sebastian Owl](http://www.sebastianowlmusic.com/) are packing it in... but not before one last hurrah. The band is releasing 'The Ties That Bind', its final album at a pair of farewell shows Nov. 2-3 at Times Change(d). We talk about everything from the band's folk roots in Brandon to the upcoming end of an era and beyond. This episode brought to you by our friends at the [Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/).

WR227: Dead Ranch

If you've listened to this podcast for any length of time, you'll know there are two distinct types of episodes: serious, earnest one-on-one interviews, and chaotic conversations with a large group of people. This episode -- with Winnipeg noise/punk/metal/whatever heroes Dead Ranch -- is definitely the latter. Dead Ranch is about to release its long-awaited Brumation full-length (April 14 at the Good Will with friends of the show Black Cloud and Thronetorcher, plus Endless Chaos). We talk about the recording process, their upcoming European tour, the way their sound has evolved, tapes vs. vinyl vs. streaming... and cheese pizza. Apologies for the interview's less-than-perfect audio quality, which had a lot to do with the window being open and some kind of gathering happening in the next room. The quality of conversation, though....PHOAAOWWW! ...
