Over the past six months, I’ve been working on a new business amongst the stress of moving to a new province. With the power (and sometimes confines) of Etsy, we […]
Cyndi Lauper’s debut solo album She’s So Unusual changed the way many of us thought about music. It quickly became one of the most iconic albums of the 1980s.

Empathetic Viscera is a snapshot of the modern Canadian experience. Richtig sees this period of Canadian history as the search for ourselves. The modern Canada is in the process of incorporating traditions and peoples from around the world (DNA Speaks, Sameness Is A Myth), understanding and appreciating our environment (Boreal Forest, The St. Mary's), and the disconnection from colonial Eurocentric ideology (The Search For God, The Chordates, Chemical Taste).
Kyle Richtig released the album Green Warriors – a compilation of his most loved acoustic songs – yesterday via Bandcamp. Find it here.
