1/2/3/4 — #153 — Failures

Katie Malco writes music that sits quietly somewhere between an aching, serene sadness and a hopeful determination. She mourns her past and lays it out on the table for all to see, exposed with twitching nerves. Armed with only an old telecaster that’s seen better days and her magnificent voice, Katie returns with her compelling new album, Failures

1/2/3/4 — #152 — Christine Jane, Grant Lee-Phillips, Dehd

Christine Jane’s eclectic tastes and world wide travels lead her to find her sound: ‘cinematic blues’. Her songs are deeply personal and reflect on loss, love, listlessness and the shadows of despair. Her latest single, written on a tiny guitar (called a guitalelele) and using eclipse mints and hands scratching demin jeans for percussion, sees Christine Jane reinventing herself in the strange space betwixt trysts. As well, excellent new releases from Grant Lee-Phillips and Dehd.

Quiet Space — #135 — Adam Pacione

Adam Pacione is a composer, sound artist, field recorder and photographer based in Fort Worth, Texas. I’ve followed his career since the start (his Heat EP featured on a very early edition of the original broadcast of the Quiet Space) and it’s a pleasure to focus on his latest release, Mâché.

1/2/3/4 — #151 — Back to Feelings

Konradsen are the duo of vocalist and pianist Jenny Marie Sabel and multi-instrumentalist Eirik Vildgren. They trace their roots to the far north of Norway, where the black night of winter is backlit by the neon glow of the Northern Lights. It’s a fitting metaphor for the music the pair crafts – tradition meets innovation, while the natural world glimmers overhead.

1/2/3/4 — #150 — A Lilac Decline

A Lilac Decline is the anagrammatic musical pseudonym of visual artist Cecilia Danell. Originally from Sweden but resident in Ireland for over a decade, Danell is a member of fellow Rusted Rail acts Cubs and Loner Deluxe. Her latest single, Sunset Song, is a lush and dreamy listen awash with spacey synth lines. As well, two great Australian songwriters, Nick Batterham and Josh Meadows combine their powers as The Bell Streets, driving uptempo pop from Sydney trio Key Out and the return of Pure X.

1/2/3/4 — #149 — Affectionately Yours

Affectionately is the project of Californian artist and Jay Som collaborator Zachary Elsasser. The debut album reveals a young songwriter battling with insecurity and self-doubt, and these feelings are poured into ‘i spend most of my time in my room’. This is dreamy, slightly wonky pop music that was amazingly created through GarageBand on a phone with one single microphone. Plus much much more!

1/2/3/4 — #148 — Justine Wahlin in Session

Justine Wahlin is difficult to categorise. She sits somewhere between alt folk/country and Roots but regularly seems to slip through the cracks to wander on her own sonic adventures, much like an octopus will sneak out to sample tasty morsels from the neighbouring tank but be back before dawn. She joins us in session – plus excellent tracks from Alison Forbes, Omaloma and Natalie Greffel.

Quiet Space — #133 — Less One Knows

Benjamin Finger has been composing music with a healthy disregard for genres since 2007. His palette moves between psych-collages, droned out-jams, piano miniatures, classical minimalism, off-kilter pop, and an occasional stab at garbled dance music. A textural and emotionally resonant cocktail in a blurred, shimmering, and psychedelic world. His latest release is more guitar dominant, it’s our feature release on this edition of the Quiet Space.
