Show Notes

When we released our most recent Big Mix-Up episode (#3 in the series so far!), a lot of listeners had the same question: who was the girl with the huge voice? It's not unreasonable to ask. The owner of that voice, soul/R&B/hip-hop/gospel powerhouse Jill Alexander, is a relative newcomer to the local music scene, which she's hoping to take over by storm. We sat down with Jill to talk about her musical background, the new releases she has in the works with Thunder Bay-based BME Studios Canada, the use of her music to reach out to people suffering from PTSD, and much more.

WR581: Culted

The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on artists’ abilities to record in person, play shows, and tour — but for blackened doom/industrial project [Culted](http://culted.bandcamp.com/), it’s kind of business as usual. I talked to drummer Kevin about the band’s unique setup (three members in Manitoba, one in Sweden), their fantastically bleak, evocative new record [‘Nous’ ](http://culted.bandcamp.com/album/nous)(on Season of Mist), and much more!
