Priests formed in 2012 amidst a post-Fugazi punk scene in Obama-era Washington, D.C. Along with guitarist GL Jaguar, lead singer Katie Alice Greer and drummer Daniele Daniele have been breathing new life into the D.C. music community with their explosive performances and record label, Sister Polygon Records. With records like Nothing Feels Natural and Bodies and Control and Money and Power, Priests tackle late capitalism powerfully with angular post-punk assaults. The tunes are catchy and the message is messy, exposing a personal-is-political shared culpability without preaching solutions. There’s definitely dancing at Priests’ revolution. In this episode, Katie and Daniele discuss oral therapy, figure skating, accelerationism, and running away from home to see Snoop Dogg.
