    Nina Ryser

    29:02

    This episode features Nina Ryser, one third of art-punk trio Palberta and a prolific solo artist.

    Kate NV

    39:59

    Russian musician Kate NV (a.k.a. Ekaterina Shilonosova) is a multi-faceted artist who slips between genres like the costumed characters she inhabits in her photos and videos. Her latest solo album Room for the Moon (RVNG Intl.) is a one-woman show with a cast of characters singing in five different languages set against neon-hued backdrops of electronic hooks. NV wears influences on her sleeves that include Japanese City Pop and cartoons that shaped her as a child such as the uncensored version of Sailor Moon, discussed at length in this interview. She waves an entirely different flag as the vocalist/guitarist of post-punk group Glintshake, and provides some tantalizing hints about the new music she's hoping to release in 2021.

    Craig Kupka

    29:39

    In the early 1980s, Californian trombonist and composer Craig Kupka recorded a pair of gorgeously flowing instrumental albums for Folkways Records. Clouds and Crystals were created with the express purpose of accompanying the cool down period of modern dance classes taught by his romantic partner, and have become celebrated releases in the cosmos of new age. Our conversation jumps from Craig’s early inspirations to his use of cannabis to inspire creativity, and concludes with some stories of his second life as a polka musician.

    John Mills-Cockell

    1:09:40

    This week’s episode tumbles from the vault to feature an interview with Canadian synth hero John Mills-Cockell, best known for his work with Syrinx and Intersystems. Recorded in spring 2020 when a Syrinx reunion show at the festival Le Guess Who? still seemed possible, our conversation covers decades of ground. Beginning with stories of how John tried out to play keyboards for Yes, it travels through his experiences with the Vancouver group Hydro Electric Streetcar, the unpredictable nature of Intersystems live performances, and two upcoming projects inspired by his sensory expanding work from the psychedelic ’60s.
