* Interview with Saskatoon-based artist Dumb Angel *

Today’s special guest, Shaun Mason – aka Dumb Angel – calls all the way from Saskatoon, Sk! Dumb Angel plays atmospheric, layered music that is self-described as ‘spacey, melodic and confessional’ (Videos and Venues blog).  Shaun speaks of the Prairie origins and initial Beach-Boys inspiration of his project, as well as his time in Montreal where he first connected with Matt and Rick from The Eternal Husbands.  You can hear tracks from the brand new Dumb Angel record called ‘Broken Glass’ (out now on Clamour Records), as well as Shaun’s recommendations of other great Saskatoon bands.

* Featuring tracks by Cub, Feedtime, The Church and more *

I had a chance meeting at CiTR radio today with Robynn Iwata, vox and guitar with the band Cub who were one of the early flagship bands of Vancouver’s venerable Mint Records label (thanks for the introduction Nardwuar!). Cub helped pioneer the jangle-guitar pop punk that became known as ‘cuddlecore’. You can hear a couple of Cub songs at the start of the show as well as tracks from their one of their contemporaries, Maow, featuring a young Neko Case.

A highlight of the second half of the show is the debut single from Vancouver’s Ashley Shadow. Ashley has been a part of many projects in the past, most notably as bassist for The Organ. This stunning song showcases her remarkable voice prowess.
