In the first half of this week’s episode, we check in with Matt Linden of the 6-year old Minneapolis-based label, Forged Artifacts, after his Twitter thread on submitting music to labels took off (another one revealing an embarrassing lack of BCC skills followed). We also hit on social media role in the growing independent record label community, the shift from vinyl to tapes, the Minneapolis music scene (with the requisite love for Totally Gross National Product), growing a label, and collaborating on releases. For the second half of the show, we dig into new music from Spouse, Anna McClellan, Jerry David Decicca, Young Jesus, and more.
Joe Virgillito chats with Prof. Gerald Friedman about COVID-19 and the case for Medicare For All. J. McVay and Jacqueline Soller discuss 2011 movie, ‘Contagion.’ Plus a preview of Scoville Unit’s upcoming BTR Live Studio session. | listen
