Show Notes

At first glance, Jessee William might seem like the quintessential hardcore kid — but looks can be deceiving, as dude just released a killer country EP, “Headwinds”.

We talk about the parallels between punk and country, giving the record some lush pedal steel courtesy of Rory Verbrugge… and working with Jordan Voth (who is also featured in an interview at the end of the episode), who brings a decidedly non-country production aesthetic to the proceedings.

This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company.

WR227: Dead Ranch

If you've listened to this podcast for any length of time, you'll know there are two distinct types of episodes: serious, earnest one-on-one interviews, and chaotic conversations with a large group of people. This episode -- with Winnipeg noise/punk/metal/whatever heroes Dead Ranch -- is definitely the latter. Dead Ranch is about to release its long-awaited Brumation full-length (April 14 at the Good Will with friends of the show Black Cloud and Thronetorcher, plus Endless Chaos). We talk about the recording process, their upcoming European tour, the way their sound has evolved, tapes vs. vinyl vs. streaming... and cheese pizza. Apologies for the interview's less-than-perfect audio quality, which had a lot to do with the window being open and some kind of gathering happening in the next room. The quality of conversation, though....PHOAAOWWW! ...

WR388: Chris Micheal

Singer-songwriter [Chris Micheal](http://www.facebook.com/chrismichealmusic) may be new to country music, but he's definitely not new to the Winnipeg music scene. Chris has spent years fronting rockers [Jekyll & the Hydes](http://www.facebook.com/JekyllandtheHydes/), and is now splitting his time between that band and his new, solo country project. We talk about being authentic to his own sound, and how he’s going to be that 80-year-old still performing at the bar whether anyone is showing up to listen or not! This episode brought to you by our pals at [The Park Theatre](http://myparktheatre.com/)! A HUGE thanks goes out to everyone who has [supported the fundraiser](http://www.gofundme.com/witchpolice-radio-improvement-fund). I’ve been raising $ to upgrade to better-quality recording gear, and the response has been phenomenal. Your support is greatly appreciated! ...

WR710: Poodle Paddle

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