Show Notes

Welcome to 2014! To start things off the right way, we’re joined this week by folk-punk touring machine Greg Rekus (ex-High Five Drive) as he prepares for the release of his second solo record, Punkoustic, which comes out tonight at a CD release showGreg talked the “money” theme with all three hosts and performed live at the end of the episode.
 
We've been familiar with Greg's music since way back in the Lacking Intelligence days of the late 90s, and he's always been an important part of the local music scene, so it was a pleasure to have him on the show. Check it out, and check out Punkoustic, which is being released by our pals at the DEAFWISH label.

WR104: Gold Mountain

It's another timely episode! This week's guests, **[Gold Mountain](http://goldmountainsound.bandcamp.com/)** , are releasing their debut EP this Friday at the Handsome Daughter (presented by our [Garbage Hill](http://www.garbagehillnetwork.com/) pals **[Team Steve](http://www.witchpolice.com/2014/09/witchpolice-radio-episode-92.html)** ). We had three-quarters of the band in the Blanket Fort to talk about the randomly-generated "buzz" theme, which is fitting, considering the attention this band is (deservedly) getting lately for their keyboard-heavy, punk and folk-informed rock sound. ...

WR344: Wittenberg

A few weeks back, I asked listeners which local bands they'd like to hear on the show. One of the names that came up was [Wittenberg](http://wittenberg.bandzoogle.com/home), a new-on-the-scene duo I'd never heard of before. This episode is my conversation with both members of Wittenberg. We talk about their debut album, Perennial, about how the songs went from a bedroom solo project to a full-fledged band, incorporating backing tracks into their live shows, and much more. This episode is brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/). Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far.
