Sandra takes to the streets of Chicago to catch up with Notes + BoltsPanda Riot, and Divino Nino to learn more about local music and what shapes the scene.

Hear the track “Edo Method” from The Bilinda Butchers debut full-length Heaven.

Ross and Justin review a handful of releases including Toronto instrumental hip-hop/jazz trio BADBADNOTGOOD‘s III, the score for Gold from Earth founder Dylan Carlson under the name drcarlsonalbion, classical/neofolk from Musk Ox and their latest Woodfall, and eclectic alt-country from Denver’s Wovenhand on Refractory Obdurate.
