WR513: Voyageuse

This episode features a chat with ‘punk noir’ duo [Voyageuse](http://www.instagram.com/voyageusevoyageusevoyageuse/), made up of Matt Powers ([Vampires](http://vampiresband.bandcamp.com/)) and Dana Moore ([Gt. Dane](http://gtdane.bandcamp.com/)). We talked about the level of individual responsibility each member of a two-piece band has on the overall sound, about going four months without rehearsing (due to the pandemic), and more! There's a bunch of controversy that has been stirring around this episode, so just check out the disclaimer in the intro. You won't hear any ads on this one, because I didn't want to inadvertently rope anyone else into the drama. Also, kind of hilariously, you hear crickets in the background throughout the episode, because it was recorded remotely and they were outside the city. That also contributes to the sketchiness (at times) of the audio connection, but it's still listenable. Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on [Patreon](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice). You can help out for as little as $1 a month if you like the show and want to throw some change in the guitar case! ...

WR228: Silence Kit

We're always suckers for '90s nostalgia here at Witchpolice Radio, so Winnipeg's Silence Kit -- with their resurrected grunge sound -- were an obvious choice as guests. The band is releasing its excellent debut album, Started As A Whisper, this Friday at The Handsome Daughter. They talked about their origins in two separate projects that joined forces, their high-energy stage shows and a lot more... plus hear an exclusive live acoustic performance and get an advance listen to some tracks from the new record! ...
