Show Notes

First going under the name Nineteen, then The Keen and the Kind, singer-songwriter Violet Vopni's musical project has had a number of identities, but she has a new record in the works under her own name.

We talked about her various musical incarnations, a sonic shift toward pop (while retaining folk and jazz influences), and much more!

WR373: Trio Antipodes

[Trio Antipodes](http://store.cdbaby.com/Artist/TrioAntipodes) is a new jazz trio with some old familiar faces. Frequent Witchpolice guest [Keith Price](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/36b8a2de992aac/) has teamed up with his [Double Quartet](http://witchpolice.podiant.co/e/3544210612b466L/) bandmate [Jeff Presslaff](http://www.jeffpresslaff.com/), along with drummer [Graydon Cramer](http://www.facebook.com/graydoncramermusic). I caught them on the road from Edmonton where they were in the middle of a short tour to promote their new [Upside Downwards](http://store.cdbaby.com/cd/trioantipodes) record. Their (excellent) music aside, it's an interesting group in the sense that Keith recently moved to New Zealand, where he's teaching at a university. We talk about the difficulties of being a cross-continental band, the experimental nature of the album, and much more.

WR134: Sugarsick

This week's guests, 2/3 of Winnipeg pop-punk power trio Sugarsick, are on the show to promote the group's debut album (which comes out July 17), the difference between rye and bourbon and a lot more. Jared Weiss (guitar/vocals, ex-Port Amoral) and Shea-K 47 (drums, a/k/a Employee of the Month) helped select "marker" songs, reminisce about the good old days of CD compilations and talk about why the pop-punk sound still feels good decades after its heyday. ...

WR582: Tunic

Noise punks [Tunic](http://linktr.ee/tunic) just released [“Exhaling”](http://tunicband.bandcamp.com/album/exhaling), an LP that compiled all of their previous releases with some new material. I talked to guitarist/vocalist David about that project, about the hard-touring trio’s experience with pandemic lockdown, and a whole bunch more.
