Best New (local) Music

My favourite stuff out of Halifax this week: 

- Big Budi Band / Aquakultre's set from this year's SappyFest. Live hip hop jazz improv groove party music from some of Halifax's best. SO GOOD. Recording is a little scratchy. Do not let that deter you. Push play, drift away.

- Tara Thorne (Dance Movie, The Coast, CBC) being interviewed by James Boyle (Halifax Pop Explosion). Lively convo about Dance Movie's new record (prod by John Goodmanson - Bikini Kill, Death Cab for Cutie, Sleater-Kinney etc) and whether pursuing the music "industry" is a worthwhile or even necessary goal for creators in 2017.
