S5, E4: Lanrick Bennett Jr. on Missiles (The Dears)

June 27, 2019

From the inner circles of politics, art and activism to the friendly confines of the Completely Ignored Podcast, Canadian music advocate Lanrick Bennett Jr. brings plenty of humour and heart to this episode. In it, we're talking about the Dears and their 2008 full-length Missiles. Beyond just sharing his thoughts on why this album kicks much ass, Lanrick gets personal about how his whole family has embraced this band and its music over the years. He also offers his thoughts on various non-Dears topics, namely the state of live music in Toronto and general why art fucking matters. Very smart, sincere stuff here!
