Playlist: Episode #839, May 31, 2020

A smaller crop of new releases this week leads things off, but we do have the great privilege of premiering some amazing new music from Winnipeg’s own Sean Burns, created in isolation and coming out on the next BandCamp day. Most of today’s show is a love letter to a city that I love and visit often, Minneapolis, MN. The city has been at the forefront of racial tensions in the USA this week. Our hope is that things can move forward and get better without further violence. Sending some peace, love, and rock ‘n’ roll to all!
