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. As a big fan of Melbourne’s Tulalah, I have found a kindred spirit with this release. Stunning. As well more soulful grooves from Chelsea Wilson, Cookin’ With Three Burners abd Part Time.

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.

1/2/3/4 — #72 — High As The Sun

I don’t know about you, but music makes me high. Everytime I discover new sounds to share with you, there’s a rush, an excitement, even a dread – I wonder – will I feel like this again? Inevitably I do, which is why I love making these programs. We start with two energetic UK ensembles who love the music of West Africa, Me and My Friends and Vula Viel (pictured). We then move through progressive psych to folk to orchestral pop to Americana to post punk and end with the show with a BANG! thanks to a stunning duo – Robbie Fulks and Linda Gail Lewis who certainly go Wild Wild Wild.
