Show Notes

There’s a municipal election happening, Winnipeg, and as your friendly neighbourhood music podcast, I sat down with a couple of folks from the local music scene who happen to be running for council.

Stay tuned for a great conversation with Omar Kinnarath (who you may remember from local hardcore bands like Intafada and Rogue Nation back in the day), and Natalie Smith (ex-Silence Kit, now in Mulligrub).

As I’ve said in EVERY election-themed show I’ve done over the years, I’m not endorsing either candidate (I’m not in their wards anyway) or anyone else. Please read up on the candidates in your area and vote for whoever best represents you. Just vote.

Back to your regularly-scheduled programming next episode!

Note: I say "ridings" instead of "wards" about a billion times on this episode. Oops.

It's an interview with KEN mode frontman Jesse Matthewson, in which we talked about the long-running Winnipeg noise rockers' upcoming eighth LP, “Null” — part of a two-album arc.This conversation also touches on the band becoming a four-piece after decades as a trio (adding Kathryn Kerr on sax/synth), being involved in the business side of music, finding ways to enjoy performing again, and much more.

WR148: Greg Arcade / Aaron Starr

For this week's episode, we caught our old friend (and frequent guest) Greg Arcade at a rehearsal with fellow made-in-Manitoba country singer Aaron Starr and rhythm section Josh Ayers and Nathan Kehler (both of whom chime in here and there throughout the show). Because there were other people rehearsing in the same building, to get some quiet, we decided to record in the back of a van. It kind of worked. There's some weird humming at the beginning and a train going by at one point, but otherwise it's all good! We talk country and "upset" songs. ...
