Show Notes

Capital-F folk duo [The New Customs](http://www.thenewcustoms.com/) are set to release their new LP, Selling Religion on Government Street in early October, so we hung out at a Tim Hortons near the airport for a podcast. Dale and Emma have been hustling hard at this acoustic storytelling business for a number of years now, and their indie-folk sound reflects the genre's ins and outs, including its ability to put across a a serious political message with a mellow backing. Check 'em out [Oct. 3 at The Park Theatre](http://www.thenewcustoms.com/shows/srogs-cd-release) for a hometown release show before they take their show on the road and present the new record to audiences across the country. This episode is brought to you by our friends at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/), who are hosting the second annual [Manitoba Podcast Festival](http://www.facebook.com/mbpodfest) Sept. 29. It’s also brought to you by Polish-Canadian electronic outfit [Hypernashion](http://www.facebook.com/Hypernashion-Band-116231005088/) and the whole [Hyper Recordz](http://www.hyperrecordz.com/) family. Be sure to check out the [new Hypernashion single](http://youtu.be/pjsBFU7O5EI) (feat. 5imon5ez and Joe Silva).
