Show Notes

I had a great conversation with 'punk/indie/twee/screaming/who knows' duo Poodle Paddle, about finding the sweet spot between heavy and soft, playing house shows, changing their vibe (and number of band members!) from show to show, and the power of DIY.

Stay tuned. Very cool new band. I dig. You will too.

WR291: Ragdolls

Third-wave ska is back, and it's found an unexpected home in Winnipeg's large, vibrant Filipino community! [Ragdolls](http://www.facebook.com/pg/ragdollsSKA/) are inspired by the genre's '90s heyday and lay claim to being the city's first and only all-Filipino ska group. We talk about their musical and cultural roots, the ongoing appeal of ska music, and navigating Winnipeg's wider music community as relative newcomers. Although Ragdolls haven't recorded any original music (yet), they have a wide range of live performances available on [YouTube](http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCk4EGSv98GM3WEOhCz5ppxA), which is where the songs in this episode are from. This episode brought to you by our friends at the Park Theatre, who are presenting '[Buffy Prom](http://https://www.facebook.com/events/222171375002264/)' on June 17! It's a fully-themed Buffy the Vampire Slayer prom/dance party featuring DJ K Chedda and awesome '90s music, plus a costume contest and door prizes. The episode is also brought to you by [Fourth Quarter Records](http://www.fourthquarterrecords.com/), your home for quality local hip-hop, as well as merchandise like the glorious 3Peat hoodies you've been seeing everywhere lately. ...

We're always suckers for '90s nostalgia here at Witchpolice Radio, so Winnipeg's Silence Kit -- with their resurrected grunge sound -- were an obvious choice as guests. The band is releasing its excellent debut album, Started As A Whisper, this Friday at The Handsome Daughter. They talked about their origins in two separate projects that joined forces, their high-energy stage shows and a lot more... plus hear an exclusive live acoustic performance and get an advance listen to some tracks from the new record! ...
