the interview show: BadBadNotGood

BadBadNotGood started as three school chums (Matt, Chester and Alex) who decided to post their jazzy interpretations of hip hop tracks online. Fast forward to a few years later and they are releasing a collab record with Ghostface Killah! I talk to the band about how they write, Steely Dan, and what it’s like to get drunk off […]

the interview show: Brody Dalle

Brody Dalle started performing in bands when she was barely a teenager in Australia. Just as she turned 18, she married Tim Armstrong, the frontman of Rancid. (Their divorce inspired many of the songs on Rancid‘s 2003 album Indestructible.) From there, Brody has led several bands, proving music is one of the true loves of […]

the interview show: Viet Cong

Viet Cong have rocketed out of to nowhere (truth be told: Calgary) to become one of 2015?s most talked about bands. The band’s self-titled debut has been quickly gathering rave reviews and intensely dedicated fans. A few months ago, I got a sneak preview of the record, huddling in the tour van with Matt Flegel (left) and […]

the interview show: Lowell

Calgary-born Lowell moved to Toronto to study music, but dropped out and spend some time working as a stripper. Lowell will be the first person to tell you that “former stripper who makes music” is a great headline, but there is a lot more to this musician than an easy headline. We did the interview […]

the interview show: Rich Aucoin 2014

Rich Aucoin made his latest record Ephemeral to sync up with the the 1979 claymation film version of The Little Prince (or Le Petit Prince if you are francophone). Rich also does a really great job of creating a unique experience during his live shows. He describes his show as “screaming along with your friends to songs you don’t […]

the interview show: Junip (José González)

Most people remember Swedish folk rock singer José González for the amazing covers he did in the mid-2000s. (Remember his incredible cover of “Heartbeats” by The Knife?) Lately José has been making music and touring with two of his high school friends under the name Junip. When I first met José in his tour van, I was a […]

the interview show: SOHN

After the release of “The Wheel” in 2012, London’s SOHN spread like wildfire through the internet and within less than a year he was releasing his debut full length record Tremors on 4AD and reportedly writing songs with Lana Del Rey, BANKS and Rhye. Christopher Taylor, the man known as SOHN, was as sick as a dog when […]

the interview show: Mozart’s Sister

I met Caila (aka Mozart’s Sister) at soundcheck at the Fortune Sound Lounge last time she was in town. While I waited for her to finish setting up for her show, I ended up chatting with Caila’s mom and we ate mooncakes together.  Her mom actually told me a secret about Caila. What was this […]

the interview show: Metronomy 2014

UK indie electronic music darlings Metronomy routinely play sold out arenas in the UK and France. Luckily Metronomy fans in Canada get to see the band in more intimate venues like the Fortune Sound Lounge. When I sat down with Joe and Benga from the band, they were quick to correct me when I accidentally called their […]

the interview show: Jessy Lanza

Jessy Lanza is a electronic music producer and performer from Hamilton, Ontario. Her debut record Pull My Hair Back was a top 10 finalist for the 2014 Polaris Music Prize. Jessy and I chilled out in her van for a bit and ate candy. I asked her about her time as a piano teacher, her […]

Alex Metric – Heart Weighs a Ton (feat. Stefan Storm)

Alex Metric has gone and done a big electronic pop-song which is so good, if all big electronic-pop songs were like this, I’d like them a whole lot more. They aren’t though and that’s why I really appreciate his new song, “Heart Weighs a Ton“. Highly recommended if you like the sounds of Miike Snow. Alex [...]

Tatsuro Yamashita – Ceita054 Edits

A couple weeks ago we did a post on Tatsuro Yamashita, a Japanese musician who most certainly knows his way around a funky bassline. And after finding a rather nice extended disco remix of his track “Merry Go Round“, we stumbled across a DJ in Japan by the name of Ceita054 who has re-worked some of Yamashita’s [...]
