Ep. #56: Dallas Good

Dallas Good is a tremendously gifted multi-instrumentalist from Toronto, Ontario who is best known for singing and playing guitar in the world’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll band, the Sadies. The hardest working, most prolific band I know, the Sadies have been conquering this planet one town at a time for almost 20 years, collaborating with a long list of luminaries and making their own mark with each new album better than the last. Their new record is called Internal Sounds and is available now courtesy of Outside Records in Canada and Sadie plays shows in Hamilton and London, Ontario this week with more dates to follow. Here Dallas and I talk about him producing the new Sadies LP, how it compares to working with people like Steve Albini and Gary Louris, how the band dynamic is tested when he’s the boss, why some new Sadie songs sound like the Band, the band’s punk pedigree and whether punks enjoy Sadie as much as folk festival people do, how the road can be weird, the time Dallas broke his leg and missed a show in Saskatoon, working with Buffy Sainte-Marie, what’s up with Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet, Career Suicide, and the Good Family, the song “STORY 19,” and more.

Ep. #55: Jace Lasek of the Besnard Lakes

Jace Lasek is the co-founder and primary instrumentalist in the mighty Montreal rock band, the Besnard Lakes. Originally from Regina, Saskatchewan, Lasek made his way to Montreal some time ago and now co-owns the state of the art Breakglass recording studio, where he serves as an engineer and producer. Among the many cool records made at Breakglass is the latest and fourth full-length by the Besnard Lakes, Until in Excess, Imperceptible UFO, which was released earlier this year on Jagjaguwar and Outside Music. The band’s current tour brings them to Toronto’s Lee’s Palace on Nov. 29 and here Lasek and I discuss the band’s new album, its connection to Albuquerque, New Mexico, what it’s like to write and sing with his wife Olga Goreas, how drugs work and what they do, the song “Colour Yr Lights In” and more.
