Earlier this past year, I caught up with Vancouver music producer Jonathon Fluevog as he was preparing the first Vogville Day and Night Festival, which happened at Vancouver's Alpen Club. One of the acts on the bill was Coquitlam-based The Matinée. Now, hot off that pairing, the two have joined forces again for the first episode of a new web series -- Vogville Presents -- which observes some of the music industry's hottest new acts as they spend a day in the recording studio.

I caught up with Matinée lead vocalist Matt Layzell on the phone from the Peak Performance Boot Camp, and we talked about his band's involvement with Jonathan and everything they've been up to these past couple of years.
