1/2/3/4 — #123 — Stay Connected

Broads are Kelly Day and Jane Hendry, Melbourne queens of indie-noir. They are back with a wonderful new album, Stay Connected, that pushes their sound from their acoustic roots into a wider spectrum of colour – with hints at 60s pop, 70s folk, a little 80s new wave. They pop into the studio for a chat and perform some tracks as well. We also pay tribute to the late Leo Mullins (Benedicts/Welcome Mat/Small Knives) and brand new works from Josh Rennie-Hynes, Anna Cordell, Khristian Mizzi and more!

Just one of the gems we uncover in this episode.
