New Music (And Matt Solo): WAFFLES!, May 5, 2018

Two rock solid hours of rockin’ new music, from the electronic/classical meanderings of Tigue to the electronic pulse of Booka Shade, on this week’s WAFFLES! Matt flies solo as Marisa works. WAFFLES! is podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff.

Yonder playlist is yon:

Sailing: WAFFLES! — April 28, 2018

John Curtis of Wind Athletes (and a lot of other sailing-related initatives) drops by to co-host with Matt, and generally blow our minds about a whole whack o’ sailing facts! Music ranges from Mendelssohn’s Calm Sea, Prosperous Journey all the way to the Beach Boys and frankly terrifying music from, appropriately, TV show The Terror. WAFFLES! is podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff. Playlist is over yonder, sailor:

Insects: WAFFLES! — April 21, 2018

Buzz buzz — bees, hornets, wasps, fireflies, and some non-insects like worms and spiders are crawling all over this edition of WAFFLES! Surprisingly mellow music for the most part, but getting kind of raucous on the back end with some new-classic hip-hop, Japanese rap, UK dance and a lot of bands named Cicada.

Harmony: WAFFLES!, April 14, 2018

Marisa and Matt are in har-mon-nyyyyy! Actually they repeatedly fail to sing in harmony — brutally — while playing lots of music by people who do, ranging from the eerie world of polyphonic overtone to the Gregorian chant of the Monks of Saint-Benoit-du-Lac on through the raucous yet sweet music of the Old 97’s. It’s the mellowest WAFFLES! ever, probably, and podcast always under a SOCAN 22F tariff.

Transplants: WAFFLES!, April 7, 2018

April is BeADonor month! Marisa’s at work, so Matt holds down the fort with Shillane, a volunteer with the Transplant Advocate Association! We learn tons about transplants, bust some myths, and of course play all sorts of music ranging from violin concertos to avant-garde hip-hop. Where’s that playlist? Why, it’s here!

Geology: WAFFLES!, March 31, 2018

From the Grand Canyon Suite to the weird sounds of the Mothers of Invention, geology (what is geology?) is the guiding force behind this edition of WAFFLES!, as Marisa returns, Matt keeps being weird, and some stellar a capella female voices grace the airwaves. Podcasterized, as always, under a SOCAN 22F tariff.

Whither the playlist? Look no further than here, gentle friend:


Suits: WAFFLES!, March 24, 2018

Dave Cunningham of Well Suited joins us to co-host the show with Matt this week, talking about a new charitable organization in Kingston that helps people in need get dressed for job interviews and jobs themselves! Songs about suits and work clothes, ranging from Sibelius’ The Emperor’s New Clothes through ZZ Top and Handsome Boy Modeling School.

Songs of Resistance — WAFFLES!, March 17, 2018

We are joined by the inestimable Adam Walker for two hours of “Songs of Resistance,” starting with the subversive classical piece Finlandia and ending with 2016’s greatest song of all time candidate “Hell You Talmbout.” Incredible music, a great guest, and in the background, Facebook Live! On Adam’s feed. I don’t know how to link to that. So I won’t.

International Women’s Day 2018 – WAFFLES!, March 10, 2018

Marisa is BACK this week, and we’re celebrating International Women’s Day with songs by (or in one instance featuring) women! Some minor edits to this one — a Salt n’ Pepa track turned out to have MAJOR swears so we’re trimming it to oblige our podcast ‘Clean’ bracket. AMAZING NEW MUSIC from amazing women, mostly Canadian, peppered throughout.

The playlist? WHERE’S THE PLAYLIST? Oh! It’s just here:

King Con 2018: WAFFLES!, March 3, 2018

Justine from Minotaur and King Con is joining us this week — Marisa’s on a break! We play hero music and board game music and generally catch up on Kingston’s premier board game and comic book festival, happening next weekend, totally free. The on-air transmitter went on the fritz about 60 seconds before air, so the show is a bit choppier than usual. Justine is the G.O.A.T. for bearing with us!
