The interview begins with Marcus, Winston and I reflecting on the last time I had chance to see the boys in Squamish, British Columbia for a festival in 2015. They talked about the wild drive up the Sea-to-Sky highway while the Jurassic Park theme rattled around their heads. Then they talked about skinny dipping?

Back on the rails, the band talked about mixing their fourth album, Delta, in New York City and they will be listening to the final mix tonight. the record will be out on November 16th.

The album’s title, Delta, comes from the fourth letter of the Greek alphabet but also the idea of a fertile river delta.

Marcus and Winston talk about some of the sounds we’re excited to hear. Making music for an album experience, Winston touring with an Austrian band, HVOB, and bringing some vibes back to Delta, and we wrap it up talking about the idea of the guiding light in the song “Guiding Light.”



Go with yourself.

My latest collection of 45s I picked up over the weekend. This time from Ditch Records in downtown Victoria.

It begins with the contemporary Mumford & Sons. The song “Little Lion Man” has taken on new meaning to me as of late and seeing it at Ditch was kismet so i had to have it. The b-side might be of interest to you major fans as its not on their album and could be new to you.

Then we blast off to the 60s. I bought “The Nana Song” by The Scorpions for my nana… but he really is singing “na-na” not about Nana. Oh well, groovy beat band of the 60s, and the song sounds great.

More beat band action from The Creation, then The Zombies who I have a major lust for as of late. The set ends with some American doo-wop of the 60s in Randy and the Rainbows and then a weird, rare cut from UK’s female vocal group the Four Pennies. The song “My Block” doesn’t appear to have ever been a single. weird.

I hope you enjoy the set. Thank you for making the time to listen to music.

You can STREAM the set from my MIXCLOUD page.
