Whew! It’s a big one folks. But Jess promises it’s worth it. JW takes us behind the curtain on Tyler Shipley’s political indie pop outfit and its rotation of musicians, and sheds light on the upcoming gossamer-pop In the City tunes yet to be released (yay sneak peek!). Phill Hood, JW’s longtime bandmate and front man for Phill Hood and the !! stuck around to make JW blush by comparing his melodic bass style to Paul McCartney. If you want giggles, anecdotes, and two very different records to get into, this is the one. Get in the loop! SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT AT THE END!!!!
Dylan and Jess had a LOT to say about the fantastic bands we’ve had on AFL, so to celebrate a new year, we take a trip back through the most controversial, most memorable, and most hilarious clips and bloopers from 2015. If you’re new to our show, enjoy a taste of what we’ve done and stay tuned for what’s to come. Happy New Year!
Cover songs are a staple of music, a great opportunity to shuffle around the style and put a fresh take on something. Jesse and Dylan cover some of the best, some of the most interesting, some of the weirdest. A little something for everybody.
Dylan and Jess delve into some brilliant and bizarre collaborations, from covers of classic tunes to originals with unexpected pairings, they guarantee you’ll discover something wonderfully weird in this episode, or your money back! (Get it? It’s a free podcast…)
Jess is away actually enjoying her Labour Day Weekend, so I sat down with my mom (Loretta Rice) to talk about Labour Folk, politics, music and growing up.
Jesse has her first ever guest! Long-time musician and all around cool cat Ricardo DeGaia (The Disco Rebels) joins her in the yard for a campfire, some beers, and a heavy chat about the ins and outs of being a ‘jobber’, what his writing process is like across many genres, and the state and future of Toronto’s music scene. Get in the loop!
In this bonus episode, Jesse and Dylan take a look at songs that encapsulate the soul of the bizarre country in which they live. This episode is Canadian to the bone, but well-worth listening to no matter where you’re from. Let us know what you think of Canada!
Jesse and Dylan take on three big albums (each) from their lives. First, we talk about albums we’ve moved past. Second, we talk about albums that were formative for us. Finally, we talk about an album we find indispensible.
In order to save space, we had to take this episode down from SoundCloud, but you can download the file from our DropBox, at least until we get fully settled into our new digs. Join the conversation, let us know what you think. What are your big three?
