I believe in art, freedom, and the inevitable failure of the North American Empire
Popular tunes of the 20’s and 30’s, paired with anachronistic arrangements of contemporary songs and jazz standards.
There’s some time travel on this episode with Chenoa McKelvey and Jonathan Alexiuk of nostalgia-loving, jazzy, vocal harmony-heavy outfit Smith’s Onion!
It’s fun chat about taking influence from hundred-year-old music and bringing it into a modern context, and a whole lot more – just don’t make me pronounce the name.
Since Smith’s Onion has been primarily a live band at this point – or, at least they were before the pandemic – they don’t have any formal recordings yet, so the songs on this episode are just lo-fi live recordings.
