Show Notes

Great chat with the delightful pizza-loving (they made a concept album about it) weirdos in Butterfist Funhouse.

We talked about the new record, Illegal Oregano: an Italian Drama, songwriting, cannibalism, nebulous genre labels, 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!

WR378: Nick Friesen

You may know bassist, songwriter, journalist, animator, etc. Nick Friesen from his role in [Futurekids](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/3534bd1f0c4824L/) or from his [Jaded & Elated](http://jadedandelated.bandcamp.com/) radio show, but his latest project is something altogether different. Nick is the creator and driving force behind [Olivia Sea](http://oliviasea.net/) – a fictional, animated indie-pop artist with a new EP (think Prozaak or Gorillaz) out now, and a lot more content on the way! We talk about the character, who has been a constant in his creative life since the Futurekids days and beyond, as well as how, exactly, one puts together a record by a fictional artist with a fictional band.
