Our special guest this week is Jay Myers aka The Alkemist.  I first saw Jay play live last summer and was highly impressed with his positive spirit and one-man-band eclecticism. This year I caught up with Jay at the 2017 Arts Wells festival and had a great chat on a sunny morning sitting by the creek near town. You can hear three tracks from the band new Alkemist record Lighthouse and hear Jay talk about his impressive home building project in Fort Fraser. BC where he resides and makes music. You can also hear the brand new single Undersea, from The Church from their highly anticipated new record Man Woman Life Death Infinity.

This week I read on the I-94 Bar website a glowing review of a rare local show by Sydney-based punk stalwarts The Celibate Rifles.  So I was inspired to revisit three classics from the band’s catalogue at the top of the show.   We introduce listeners to Kiwi-based soul/r&b artist Aaradhna whose song ‘Brown Girl’ is a response to her experiences with racism.  We shift gears with a track from Montreal-based metal band Floating Widget‘s debut record.  And we also feature tracks from the sophisticated folk/pop Vancouver-based outfit Jasper Sloan Yip and Frontal Lobotomy, a cool three-piece folk act from Prince George, BC who I had the good fortune to see live recently.
