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.

This week, we sat down -- in a room festooned with hilarious black light posters -- with Mac and Mark of 90s-influenced noisemaking duo Mmars. They're releasing their debut Fuzzstronaut album July 22 at the Good Will, so we talk about the new tape (which is fantastic, by the way) and a lot more! ...
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! ...
Call it doomwave, Black Sabbath meets Tears for Fears, or whatever else: Crime Cellar has unleashed its debut EP on an unsuspecting Winnipeg public. Check out our conversation about the contrasts between their metal backgrounds and the new sound, the undying appeal of the ‘80s, starting out as a band through a global pandemic, and much more! This episode brought to you by our pals at Devine Shirt Company and by Gruf and Yy's new 'Mental Health Day' album on Saskatoon Folk Rap Records.Huge thanks to everyone who supports the podcast on Patreon, including our latest patron, Graham!
