Episode 78: All Good Things

Jesse and Dylan wrap up the podcast! It’s a little sad, but it’s a great trip down memory lane. We talk about what we’ve done, how we’ve grown, and how things have changed since then, and thank just about everybody we can think of. As always, there’s lots of laughs and tangents, so it should fun to listen to. So for one last time: Get in the Loop!

Episode 65: Ink Sticks & Stones

Today we tackle the delightfully difficult to categorize Ink Sticks and Stone’s release All That Gets Left Behind. It’s a storyteller’s epic that weaves in classical piano, Chinese mythology, French waltz, and folk noir to create an utterly unique sound so get in the loop!

Re-release Episode 31: SirenPhase

In memory of Corey Woodrich. Rock in peace.

Windsor-based metal prog rock with an intense apocalyptic maybe-not-so-distant future narrative. The most densely concise concept album we’ve done on AFL, its Siren Phase’s Origins EP. Dylan muses on the influences of H.R. Gieger in sci-fi, and Jess recounts her experience with The Purge franchise. Check them out at sirenphase.bandcamp.com for this and more releases from them!

Episode 44: Kayt Lucas Band

Continuing our recent string of wicked female vocals is Kayt Lucas Band, and their album, Tornado Nursery. It’s hard folk, with a sunny attitude and plenty of mandolin. The instrumentation is particularly unique, blending elements of Latin beats, Santana- style guitar, and the movements inspired by Kayt’s career as an aerial dancer and choreographer. Certainly a treat, so get in the loop! And mark your calendars for our next showcase, No Soul Safe at the Libertarian Public, April 8th!

Episode 31: SirenPhase

Windsor-based metal prog rock with an intense apocalyptic maybe-not-so-distant future narrative. The most densely concise concept album we’ve done on AFL, it’s Siren Phase’s Origins EP. Dylan muses on the influences of H.R. Gieger in sci-fi, and Jess recounts her experience with The Purge franchise. Subscribe on iTunes and Stitcher, and stay tuned for news about A Very Open Mic Night!

Alt-country folk with some heavy metaphors and a particular tilt on Windsor, this third release from Allison Brown, Stitches and Incisions, will surprise and delight. With a laundry list of collaborators and tunes that explore the divide of border towns or the decrepit hospital who once stood tall, it’s a songwriting powerhouse and beautifully executed. Dylan weigh in on Windsor culture and Jess digs deep into recent hero/villain stereotypes that get taken to task in “Your Enemy.” It’s a personal and insightful episode, so get in the loop!
