The Radio 3 Podcast for October it out! This month, we present you with possibly the most compelling interview we've done all year: Ian Campeau from A Tribe Called Red. He talkes about the decimation of Indiginous people in Canada, the role the late poet John Trudell played in the making of their new record, and the pressure and responsibility of crossing over into music's mainstream.
Host Louise Burns also gives us her list of 5 essential things you need to hear this month, which includes a powerful new song about the effects of global warming on the polar bear population from Tanya Tagaq. Also on her list is a song from the exciting newcomer FOONYAP, who makes impressively raw, emotive music with her voice and a violin.
And, because we are close to Halloween, we had Vancouver’s Bear Mountain come by the studio and share a spooky ghost story from the road.
Here is the playlist for this episode:
1. Bear Mountain “Atembe” from Badu
2. A Tribe Called Red “The Light” from We Are The Halluci Nation
3. FOONYAP “The Fun Machine” from Palimpsest
4. Timber Timbre “Demon Host” from Timber Timbre
5. Tanya Tagaq “Cold” from Retribution
The CBC Radio 3 Podcast for October features new music from A Tribe Called Red, FOONYAP and Tanya Tagaq.
