Show Notes

We talk soul music, Winnipeg neighbourhoods, 'neck' songs and a whole bunch more with local funk/pop/rock/R&B gang The Heights, who are new on the scene despite having played together (in various combinations and projects) for over a decade. With a debut EP being released June 11 and -- if you can't wait that long -- a show at the Garrick this Friday with past Witchpolice guest Casimir Gruwel -- plus upcoming tour plans and more, The Heights are going all-in for 2016. They played a couple of excellent stripped-down tracks from the record on the show as well, so stay tuned 'til the end!
