WR477: Nugget

Still here, still on lockdown. This episode is a remote conversation with Sean and Daniel from local prog weirdos [Nugget](http://nugget204.bandcamp.com/). We talk about their technically adventurous, experimental two-piece sound, the way they’re dealing with the pandemic, scatting (surprisingly important to the Nugget writing process), and much more. This episode is brought to you by our friends at [the Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/), and by [Better Homes for Meaner People](http://betterhomesformeanerpeople.bandcamp.com/releases).

WR219: Jesse Matas

Jesse Matas of critically-acclaimed local folk/roots touring machines The Crooked Brothers has a long history with Witchpolice. His first-ever band (circa 1995) featured current Witchpolice Radio host Sam on guitar and past co-host/longtime collaborator Rob Crooks on vocals. He has also released a number of recordings on the site itself and in connection with various pre-Witchpolice attempts at starting record labels. While the Crooked Bros. are on a brief hiatus from their hectic road life, Jesse sat down to talk about solo work, songwriting, his experiences as a working musician inside and outside of the band, and more. He also performed a number of live acoustic songs (including a cover tune and a Crooked Bros. classic), which you'll hear throughout the episode. ...

WR373: Trio Antipodes

[Trio Antipodes](http://store.cdbaby.com/Artist/TrioAntipodes) is a new jazz trio with some old familiar faces. Frequent Witchpolice guest [Keith Price](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/36b8a2de992aac/) has teamed up with his [Double Quartet](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/3544210612b466L/) bandmate [Jeff Presslaff](http://www.jeffpresslaff.com/), along with drummer [Graydon Cramer](http://www.facebook.com/graydoncramermusic). I caught them on the road from Edmonton where they were in the middle of a short tour to promote their new [Upside Downwards](http://store.cdbaby.com/cd/trioantipodes) record. Their (excellent) music aside, it's an interesting group in the sense that Keith recently moved to New Zealand, where he's teaching at a university. We talk about the difficulties of being a cross-continental band, the experimental nature of the album, and much more. This episode brought to you by our pals at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/)! Thanks to everyone who has supported the podcast thus far.
