B-Side Dreams 226 - Things Behind the Sun

Going for a quieter vibe today with music by Sour Widows, Cassandra Jenkins, Adrianne Lanker, Nick Drake, Willie Dunn and more.

Check out the Sour Widows interview and playlist with Kristin Cofer on The Infinite Kaleidoscope.

Willie Dunn "Ballad of Crowfoot" video (National Film Board of Canada). Said to be the first Canadian music video ever. Written in 1968, both the song and video are about inhumane and unjust colonial treatment of indigenous Canadians, as well as their taking charge of their destiny and becoming politically active.

Background music throughout the show is Jacco Gardner's "Rain" from the 2018 album Somnium.
