The Interview Show with Austra (radio edit) 2018-#21

6/1/2018

I hung out with Katie (from indie electronic band Austra) backstage at The Imperial the last time she was in Vancouver touring her third record, Future Politics. She had just finished a delicious sushi dinner and was planning to go eat a SECOND sushi dinner right after the interview. This latest record was influenced by isolation in Montreal, Star Trek: The Next Generation, heading to Mexico and forward-thinking books like The Accelerationist Manifesto--so I was excited to chat. How did...

The Interview Show with Holy Hum (radio edit) 2018-#20

Andrew Lee was a self-described "indie rock guy" on the road in his indie rock band, In Medias Res, when he found out his father was dying. With this news, he quit music entirely to be with family. Later, he turned back to music to deal with his loss. This new genre-defying music was meant just for himself, until a string high profile artists released records about losing a loved one. These albums from artists he admired (Nick Cave’s Skeleton Tree, Sufjan Stevens’ Carrie & Lowell, and...

I met Swedish DJ and electronic music producer Kasbo (aka Carl Garsbo) right after a post-show meet-and-greet. I was nervous to hang out after the show, but Kasbo assured me the only thing I was keeping him away from was sleep. He describes his music as "dance music that makes you want to cry" and memorable quotes like that had me looking forward to this chat. This year, Kasbo has released his debut full length record, Places We Don't Know, on Counter Records (indie electronic superstar...

This year indie rapper Rollie Pemberton aka Cadence Weapon released his fourth album. This self-titled record was four years in the making and is intended to be his "creative rebirth" after a period where he debated giving up being Cadence Weapon. I had some beers with Rollie when he was in Vancouver for Juno Fest. We talked about his roots in Edmonton, his time as a DJ in Montreal and his current hometown Toronto, which he is finding, tough but invigorating. Yes this episode will be very...

The Interview Show with U.S. Girls (radio edit) 2018-#17

Most people noticed Meg Remy's U.S. Girls project when she released her last two records, Half Free (2015) and In a Poem Unlimited (2018) on the powerhouse 4AD record label, but she's been releasing records since 2008. The American-born Remy makes a home in Toronto and has done an amazing job of harnessing that city's native talent. I describe Remy as the ringleader of U.S. Girls--which she says is accurate--because she harnessed the talent the more than 20 friends and musicians who worked...

Post-punk band Ought was born when three Americans and an Australian came to Montreal for school and got caught up in a whirlwind of friendship, music and protest. I climbed into the tour van with Tim Darcy (vocals, guitar) and Matt May (keyboards) from Ought and we talked about the band's latest record Room Inside the World. How did the 2012 Montreal protests kickstart the band? Which Ought song was inspired by Bruce Springsteen? What was included in the vision board the band shared...

Edmonton's Jessica Jalbert started Faith Healer because she wanted to be in a band rather than be known as a just singer-songwriter. I shared a few beers with Faith Healer's Jessica Jalbert and Renny Wilson in the lobby of Vancouver's Patricia Hotel . It was a stressful day for Faith Healer. Their tour van had a broken and this was a problem on a February tour. Why did Jessica not want to be known as a singer-songwriter? How did Montreal producer and fellow Mint Records artist Renny Wilson...

I found all three members of LA indie folk band Magic Giant behind Vancouver's Fox Theatre completing another interview while their crew skateboarded in the alley. Magic Giant make crowd clapping, toe-stomping, sing-along type music and spending some time with Austin, Zambricki and Zang was just as energetic and infectious as their live show. These three are non-stop charm, wit and laughter. It was a really fun interview. What ritual does Magic Giant perform before every show? What was the...

Will Wiesenfeld, the man known as electronic musician Baths, released his new record Romaplasm in late 2017 and he's on the road touring this record now. I hung out with Will backstage at Vancouver's Fortune Sound Lounge when he was on the last leg of touring his Ocean Death EP. At this point, he was anxious to get home and start writing the music for Romaplasm. What Canadian treat does Will look forward to when spending a lot of time in the tour van? What was it like making a "weird"...

If you ask Canadian musicians to name a band they especially admire, the name you'll hear the most will be Guelph's Constantines. Bry Webb fronted the Constantines until the band decided to go their separate ways in 2010. After a break from music, Bry returned with some solo records. I hung out with Bry Webb for a bit in Vancouver "friend band" Ladyhawk's tour van. The Constantines were back together for a reunion tour and we chatted about the end of that band, what got him back into...

I hung out with both members of electronic dream pop band AQUILO, Ben Fletcher and Tom Higham, backstage at the Commodore Ballroom right after they walked off stage. They were opening for their friend UK singer-songwriter electronic artist Låpsley. (In fact you can hear Låpsley in the background backstage warming up her singing voice while we chat.) Generally I don't like to do interviews after the band's set because the band is distracted by many other more fun things to do like beer. But...

Clipping (often stylized as clipping.) is an experimental hip hop group from LA. The group is three people: rapper Daveed Diggs and producers William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes. (You may know Daveed from his Tony Award winning role of the Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in the Broadway musical Hamilton.) I was nervous (and sick as a dog with the flu) when I got to hang out with the folks in clipping. The trio were in town to support their 2016 album, Splendor & Misery on Sub Pop...
