PODCAST #72 Nate (Karloff, No Funeral Records)

Nate and I have known each other well for around five years now. After being introduced via mutual friends Berto and Megan (No Funeral Records) we hit it off, he ran Zegema Beach while I was in New Zealand, started No Funeral Records and now screams in Karloff. Our second podcast but first as a duo, we discuss many-a-thing including: the origin of No Funeral, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, the importance of cd shops, Hamilton, not using a mic, gravitating toward the screamo scene, Congratulations love, mathcore and recording quality, Dianacrawls, rejected test presses and plant fuckery, No Funeral moving forward, Karloff's self-titled, Canadian screamo, the future, etc. Bands played in this podcast: Frontierer, Gridlink, Mansions, Riversleem, Sadie And The Wives, Toni Iordache and Lil Ugly Mane. Listen to podcast #72 which is available to stream and/or download for free via this link.

(2021) MIRIN BIDE "Remolcar La Vida" (from '2021 4-Way')

Starting out blazing, this back-and-forth screaming intro leads to an eventual collapse at the 40-second mark. From the rubble emerges a positive, noodley, build that explodes into a new form of something closer to emo/hardcore than emo-violence. Very cool.
