Last year, the Canadian band Dizzy took home the Juno award for alternative album of the year for its debut album, Baby Teeth. That quick success probably has something to do with the fact that they've been together for a long time, and not just as a band. Dizzy was formed by frontperson Katie Munshaw and Charlie Spencer after they met in high school, but its other members had known each other for much longer as siblings. Charlie's brothers, Alex and Mack, fill out the group on guitar and bass, respectively. Today, Katie and Charlie join me to talk about what it's like to play in an almost-family band and about the personal songwriting that fills Dizzy's sophomore album, The Sun and Her Scorch. You'll also hear full band recordings of songs from that album, beginning with "Daylight Savings Time." Listen in the audio player above.
