Show Notes

The guests on this episode, Dog Pops, are a new band that emerged from local (sorta) indie supergroup Marshall & Some Buddies.

They’re getting set to play their first show and just released a very bird-heavy EP.

We talked songs about food and animals (mostly written on the toilet), recurring dog themes, not taking yourself too seriously, the debut record, avoiding social media, and much more.

This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company, who have brand new Witchpolice merch in the works! Watch for that!

WR531: The Bloodshots

It's a new interview (it had been way too long!) with rock n’ rollers [The Bloodshots!](http://www.bloodshotsmusic.com/) We talked about their signing with [Golden Robot Records](http://goldenrobotrecords.com/), playing more layered, complex music, Winnipeg’s inherent weirdness as a place to play shows, and much more! Note that one member of this band (sorry, Orvis!) is difficult to hear. It's one of the hazards of doing these remote episodes with large groups -- sometimes connections/devices/etc. can have an impact. It definitely doesn't take away from the quality of the overall episode, though! This episode brought to you by [Rob Crooks](http://robcrooks.bandcamp.com/), whose outstanding new album, Introducing the Ghost, is out now from [Saskatoon Folk Rap Records](http://saskatoonfolkraprecords.bandcamp.com/), and by [Boots & Saddle](http://ckuw.ca/programs/detail/boots-and-saddle) on CKUW, hosted by [Sean Burns](http://seanburns.bandcamp.com/) Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on [Patreon](http://www.patreon.com/witchpolice).
