Milwaukee-area musician Marielle Allschwang, our special guest for this episode of "Cinebuds."

Every week, Kristopher Pollard from Milwaukee Film and Radio Milwaukee’s Dori Zori talk about movies — because that’s what you do when you’re Cinebuds.

This week on Cinebuds is the premiere of our inaugural (drumroll, please) Cinebuds: Musician Edition! This is an episode where we bring a beloved local musician into the mix and ask them not only about their music, but also about some of the pinnacle films of their lives.

Music and movies go hand in hand! Now, so do we! And by that I mean we all held hands while recording the pod.

Marielle Allschwang is our first musician to join us, and it was voted unanimously (among all the Cinebuds in the studio) our loveliest podcast ever. We talk to Marielle about her many, many bands: Group of the Altos, Marielle Allschwang & The Visitations, Collections of Colonies of Bees, Hello Death and a new(!) project she told us about.

We also discuss how music and film align in her life, as well as some of the films that have meant a lot to her — from Nosferatu the Vampyre to Mermaids. She asked us to include a few pieces of bonus content that go along with our discussion, so check those out below while you listen. It's a great chat with an amazing talent this city is so proud to have.

Enjoy the episode, and make sure to like, share and subscribe to Cinebuds anywhere you find podcasts, and join @cinebudspodcast on Instagram.
