Show Notes

Rusty Matyas is one of those musicians you’ve heard many times, even if you don’t realize it. As a multi-instrumentalist who has played with the likes of the Weakerthans, The Sheepdogs, Imaginary Cities and countless others, as well as a prolific producer, he appears in the credits of SO many records.

He’s now reintroducing himself to local music fans as Rusty Robot, a new project that has already received attention for its star-studded debut single/video, and is poised for bigger and better things.

This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company.

WR409: FreakingSnap

[FreakingSnap](http://freakingsnap.bandcamp.com/) is an extremely prolific local electronic/experimental artist. He's released over 400 albums (and counting), and as we discuss on this episode, it's all building to an eventual goal. We talk about how/where to delve into such an epic catalogue, about the differences between live on-stage recordings and basement jams, being nervous performing improvised pieces, and much more. This episode is coming out on a notable date for Chris, too... kinda. It's probably going to end up being released right at the end of 8/14, but close enough to 8/15 that it pretty much counts. 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/). It's also brought to you by [Wildflower Media](http://wildflowermedia.ca/), a local media and graphic design company that specializes in websites and graphic design, especially posters and social media graphics.

WR190: Sara Stasiuk / Leonard Sumner

We're recording outdoors this week, sitting behind the mainstage at Winnipeg's iconic meeting place, The Forks.

Sara Stasiuk of Six Shooter Records is on hand to talk about the Rodeo's roots and some of the exciting artists on this year's bill, including Wilco, case/lang/veirs, Lee Fields and the Expressions, Serena Ryder and many more. She's joined by Leonard Sumner, an Anishinaabe MC/singer/songwriter, representing the many talented local acts who are part of the 2016 event. ...
