WR488: Throne Torcher

WR484: Mouth Feel

...so as some of you may have heard, I lost an entire episode the other day. The file was corrupted and despite multiple efforts, I could only recover 0:20 of it. The original podcast was a great conversation with two members of local punks Mouth Feel... and while I can’t present that to you anymore, here's a quick chat with bassist/vocalist Matt, in a zombie podcast episode that also includes a stream of the entire new Mouth Feel record. I guess that’s sort of a win. Anyway, thanks to the band for their patience, and a big fuck you to my memory card for destroying the original file.

WR483: Uncle Sinner

It's an interview with 'purveyor of the primordial stomp', death-country singer-songwriter Uncle Sinner. You haven't heard of him, but you really, really should. We talked about his excellent new record, the traditional inspiration behind his songwriting, why he isn’t better-known at home in Winnipeg, and much more!

It's a new episode with West End rapper Mooki, alongside 4th Quarter Records majordomo Anthony Carvalho. We talked about Mooki’s brand new BBS Steve-produced tape, about his background in the local breakdancing scene, and much more. There are a few audio glitches on this one — a hazard of doing remote interviews, and I’m about due, as the last few have been pretty flawless — but the conversation was very interesting and worth your time.
