Following the Hoodoo Guru’s hiatus in 1998, band members got the itch to play again, so they re-branded themselves as The Persian Rugs and put out an EP and LP, chock full of 60s-style garage rock tunes. We air three of these tracks this week. Our mix of new tunes this week includes family band A Country Practice with their song ‘The Inundation into Our Room’ – a reflection on past floods and storms that hit South East Queensland, and a single from Vancouverite Marin Patenaude’s forthcoming full-length.

* 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.
