Show Notes

It’s been a few years since singer-songwriter Kieran West was on the podcast and a lot has changed.

We talked about his upcoming solo record, his new band, Looking Inward — and how fatherhood, sobriety and the pandemic have impacted his songwriting and outlook.

There’s also a bunch of conversation about the lasting appeal of Midwest emo!

WR581: Culted

The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on artists’ abilities to record in person, play shows, and tour — but for blackened doom/industrial project [Culted](http://culted.bandcamp.com/), it’s kind of business as usual. I talked to drummer Kevin about the band’s unique setup (three members in Manitoba, one in Sweden), their fantastically bleak, evocative new record [‘Nous’ ](http://culted.bandcamp.com/album/nous)(on Season of Mist), and much more!

We don't drop any big hints during this interview, but we do discuss Ticketmomster's choice of remaining anonymous, her unique -- and untrained -- storytelling style, her favourite local artists, and much more!

We talk about his latest record,'Plaid is the New Black', his experience recording in Nashville, plans for the future, and being told he’s “too old”... but doing it anyway. ...and yes, I said "singer-songer" in the intro. I was going to redo it, but I kinda like the way it sounds, so it's staying. This episode is brought to you by our pals at the [Park Theatre](http://www.myparktheatre.com/).
