Our first CMGcast of 2014, #138 was supposed to be our upbeat and at least somewhat uplifting ode to the new year—a 45-minute reassuring hug, of sorts, for those of us in the middle of an especially brutal winter. That…never really panned out beyond a couple of songs; especially as eastern Canada got even more miserable as the month went on, the playlist shifted from consolation to “fuck it, here’s some stuff that sounds ominous while trekking around a frigid, exhausted city in the aftermath of a storm.” Does the trick for Halifax right now, anyway.

This podcast is also dedicated to our continued search for new writers—you can find more info on that by clicking here and scrolling down a little. But first, enjoy:
