As well, sublime folk from UK ensemble The Willows, soulful pop from NYC’s 79.5, plus essential new releases from Gregory Alan Isakov, Grand Salvo and The Other Years.

1/2/3/4 — #74 — Outer Songs

I’m currently obsessively listening to GADADU’s album Outer Song. With a kaleidoscopic sense of time and texture, GADADU weaves odd-meter grooves, synth-spiked orchestral arrangements, and unorthodox song forms into a dreamy, soulful sound.

1/2/3/4 — #73 — Vale Zac Denton

Zac Denton (pictured far left) was the youngest member of The Ocean Party, who sadly passed away after complications with a cyst blocking the fluids from draining his brain. He was 24. Zac left Wagga Wagga at 18 to join his brother Lachlan, who along with his High School mates had formed their excellent band, working tirelessly recording eight albums and touring extensively around the country. Zac was an excellent producer, songwriter and contributed to other stellar outfits like Ciggie Witch, Pregnancy and Hobby Farm. This show is dedicated to him.
