Show Notes

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! 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). You can help out for as little as $1 a month if you like the show and want to throw some change in the guitar case! You can also throw a one-time tip via [Buymeacoffee](http://www.buymeacoffee.com/witchpolice). As always, if you like the podcast, please tell a friend or 20! Rate and review on your podcast player of choice! Word of mouth is still the main way Witchpolice Radio reaches new ears. Thanks for listening!

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. ...
