Reuben and the Dark is a indie rock band (with tinges of country) from Calgary fronted by Reuben Bullock. I met Reuben while we were both in Banff last summer. (I was in Banff for the Banff World Media Festival where the band performed.) Reuben took a break from recording to join me at a farmer’s market to chat about his record Funeral Sky. The big story behind this record is that he worked with Chris Hayden from UK mega-group Florence + the Machine on a few of the tracks.
Reuben and the Dark are currently on tour with Australian singer-songwriter Vance Joy, so this year will see increased visibility and a new record from the band.
I get shy but nice guy Reuben to talk about… His secret past as a skateboarder… How he met Florence + the Machine‘s drummer Chris Hayden by chance in Mexico… Then telling Chris that Reuben couldn’t use some of the tracks they made together… Getting slammed against the wall by Canadian border officers… And much more. Listen to our chat!
Tracks played on the show…
1) Reuben and the Dark, Funeral Sky (2014) “Rolling Stone”
2) Reuben and the Dark, Funeral Sky (2014) “Bow and Arrow” (mp3)
3) Reuben and the Dark, Man Made Lakes (2012) “Burial”

Viet Cong have rocketed out of to nowhere (truth be told: Calgary) to become one of 2015’s most talked about bands. The band’s self-titled debut has been quickly gathering rave reviews and intensely dedicated fans. A few months ago, I got a sneak preview of the record, huddling in the tour van with Matt Flegel (left) and “Monty” Munro (right). We talked about everything from making a new tour van “your own” to the night Matt’s previous band Women exploded onstage in a fistfight. Listen to our chat!
