1/2/3/4 — #131 — Underneath The Stars, Still Waiting

Vetchinsky Settings is the project of two artists who have created so many favourite records that reside in my collection. Vocalist James Hackett fronted The Orchids who shot to prominence with essential indiepop releases on Bristol label Sarah Records (The Orchids are still playing together) and multi-instrumentalist Mark Tranmer, creating incredibly gorgeous music as Gnac and with Montgolfier Brothers and Wingdisk. Their debut album, Underneath The Stars, Still Waiting, is emotive, atmospheric and incredibly cinematic. As well, debuts from Keeley Forsyth and Fran, plus Emily Barker returns home from the UK for a series of shows and a great new album in Shadow Box.

1/2/3/4 — #130 — Give Us The Light

While the members of Atlanta’s Arbor Labor Union are involved in and influenced by the scene and ideology of DIY punk and hardcore, they are indebted to Cosmic Americana Music and the working-class sympathies of Woody Guthrie. In their words, “Creedance meets The Minute Men.” Discover their rootsy drone on this episode plus an excellent Deerhoof reissue and we pay our respects to the late, great Andrew ‘Greedy’ Smith.

1/2/3/4 — #126 — Living In The Real World

For most musicians, there is no free ride, no pot of gold, no label holding you hand. It’s a tough slog in the real world, but it is fulfilling, doing something you love and sharing your talents. Sibling duo Charm of Finches have taken the DIY path since they started, releasing a wonderful debut album in 2016, Staring at the Starry Ceiling. Now they are nearly ready to share their follow up, Your Company. They’ve launched a Pozible campaign to get them over the line with associated costs. We’ll share a special track and details how you can help support them. As well, it’s so good to have Ups and Downs back with an old favourite tune, a cracking song about climate change from Theories of Everything, we’ll introduce you to a wonderful label out of British Columbia in Kingfisher Bluez plus Jamie Hutchings, Gena Rose Bruce and the AMAZING Coda Chroma.

1/2/3/4 — #124 — Shadow Lovers

Lachlan X. Morris is an Uber Eats Driver by day in Newcastle, NSW. He listens to his local ‘Oldies’ Radio Station. They play artists like ELO, Wings and The Carpenters and he’s mystified by the music. So with his latest single, he wanted to try and write a quintessential song from that velveteen hit-machine era. I like it a lot! As well, the return of Philip B. Price with his first solo record in 15 years and an modern day troubador from the UK, James McArthur with his band, The Head Gardeners.

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!
