WAFFLES! Fake Languages — September 2, 2017

Songs in Klingon! Songs in Elvish! Songs in Hopelandic! Musical renditions of the Lorem Ipsum text! It’s wall to wall linguistic weirdness for the first 90 minutes of WAFFLES! this week, followed by a round-up of great new (and less new) Canadian music. Ze playlist, she is here.

WAFFLES! is podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff.

 

WAFFLES! Trails & Rivers — July 15, 2017

In a fit of hubris, we fired all our writers! With nobody in the writers’ room, WAFFLES! struggles to come up with decent jokes. Fortunately, we’ve had a great subject to tide us over… talkin’ about the Rivers and Trails festival in Sydenham, with loads of stuff going on there today. So it’s all Rivers and Trails today on WAFFLES!. And absolutely no jokes. Playlist is here. WAFFLES! continues to podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff.

 

WAFFLES! Obstacles — July 8, 2017

WAFFLES! is podcast under a SOCAN 22F tariff. It’s the Busking Festival in Kingston this weekend, and we spend some time ruminating on the buskin’ names Wacky Chad and Band-Aid the Clown before really getting into this week’s theme: obstacles! Songs about overcoming them, or songs by people who have overcome them. Matt gets to play a metal/hair-metal set at the top of Hour Two. He’s thrilled. Playlist is here. 

WAFFLES!: Canada Day Meltdown — July 1, 2017

It’s Canada Day on WAFFLES! Lots of great music about and by Canada/Canadians, with a short detour to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Donna Summer/Giorgio Moroder’s “I Feel Love” and the birth of modern electronic music (sort of). Highlights include the creation of BASMO the Canadian Clown, Matt being stupid tired, and other general silliness. New music by Whitehorse!!

WAFFLES! 2017-25: Grab Bag and a lot of Phantasm stuff

WAFFLES! is podcasting under a SOCAN 22F tariff! Soooo… Matt went a little weird with this one: watching Phantasm I-IV in less than a calendar week will do that to you. Anyway, a grab bag catch-up kind of week, with lots of new music and lots of Canadian music. Matt’s favourite track for 2017 (so far) from Oneohtrix Point Never. We’re both surprised by how much we like Ralph. Loads of goodies and chatter, including us taking The National to task on their weak grammar skills. And Phantasm, Phantasm, Phantasm!! Playlist is here.
