Potholes favorite Shad is one of those artists who likes to live by the old adage of quality over quantity. He doesn’t hit us with an endless barrage of mixtapes, EPs, albums, videos, singles, etc… Instead, he likes to take his time and give us new music when he sees fit, like this past July when he dropped the Melancholy and the Infinite Shadness EP. The project features the London, Ontario native rapping over chopped-up versions of his favorite early ’90s singles, from the Breeders’ “Cannonball” to PM Dawn’s “Set Adrift on Memory Bliss”.
It also serves as a holdover for fans, who have been dying to hear a new full-length album from Shad since TSOL dropped in mid-2010. We talked to the sharp-tongued MC about his plans for his next record, what it’s like living in Vancouver now, performing with a live band, and much more.
