Show Notes

As many of you know, I like to host intimate little house shows in my back yard each summer. This episode of the podcast is the recording of one of the sets from our most recent back yard gig. Folk duo [Two Crows for Comfort](http://www.twocrowsforcomfort.com/) played a fantastic set of songs, primarily from their highly-recommended debut album, 17 Feet'. I've seen them a few times in a few different contexts now, and they seem like one of those versatile groups that could probably play a show anywhere and still fit in – but they seemed particularly at home at a cozy little back yard show. I’ll be releasing each of these live sets (most likely) as every second episode over the next few weeks, so stay tuned for performances by Sarau Carioca and Rob Knaggs (as well as the previously-released [Lana Winterhalt](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/378e5c502e2c50/) set), alternating with the regular Witchpolice interviews. This episode is brought to you by Osborne Village’s new pop-up record store, [Old Gold Vintage Vinyl](http://www.instagram.com/oldgoldvintagevinyl204/), and by our pals at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/).

WR591: Dizzy Mystics

Aaron Bacon (bass) and Kyle Halldorson (vocals/guitar) of ‘genre-promiscuous’ prog shredders [Dizzy Mystics](http://dizzymystics.bandcamp.com/) are back on the podcast, right on time for their [Manitoba Music streaming event ](http://www.manitobamusic.com/livemusic/display,event/99757/safe-sound-dizzy-mystics) on May 20. We talk about the way the band's sound has grown and developed over the years, the new music they're working on to follow up the *Wanderlost* record, not being 'prog for prog's sake', and much more. This episode brought to you by our pals at [Devine Shirt Company](http://devineshirtcompany.ca/). Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on [Patreon](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice).

WR406: Sarau Carioca Live in the Back Yard

As many of you know, I like to host intimate little house shows in my back yard each summer. This episode of the podcast is the recording of one of the sets from our most recent back yard gig. This set is by Brazilian-Canadian samba/bossa nova duo [Sarau Carioca](http://www.saraucarioca.com/), who I was really excited to have on the bill. They're doing something very different from anything we'd had at a house show before, and their mellow, gorgeous melodies are a must-listen... even if you don't speak Portuguese. I’ll be releasing each of these live sets (most likely) as every second episode over the next few weeks, so stay tuned for a performance by Rob Knaggs (as well as the previously-released [Lana Winterhalt](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/378e5c502e2c50/) and [Two Crows for Comfort](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/3793c9c12d6a1c/) sets), alternating with the regular Witchpolice interviews. This episode is brought to you by Osborne Village’s new pop-up record store, [Old Gold Vintage Vinyl](http://www.instagram.com/oldgoldvintagevinyl204/), and by our friends at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/). Also, be sure to check out our pals in Winnipeg’s [The Lovers](http://www.facebook.com/handsomelousy/), who are set to release a new album – *The Erotic Awakening of Asia’s Mom* – in September on all digital services and on CD. While you wait, check out the out-of-this-world new video for the record’s lead single ‘[State of Mind](http://youtu.be/KouLxbTWe3Y)’, which blends the band’s trademark harmonica-driven, rockabilly/cowpunk sound with intergalactic visuals. ...
