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.

Quiet Space — #115 — Remote Redux

Our focus is on the excellent collaboration between James Murray and Francis M Gri. Their release, Remote Redux is a delicate and original response to distance and closeness as expressed by the Japanese concept Ma, known also as negative space. It’s a place of elegant dimension where Gri’s graceful piano motifs and bowed guitar figures are carefully framed within the free flowing surrounds of Murray’s warm synth sequences and nuanced sound design.

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.

Quiet Space — #113 — Interstat

Our focus from the most excellent Canigou Records is the debut collaboration between Adam Badí Donoval (warm winters ltd) and Jakub Fiala (Theydon Boys) – INTERSTAT. It’s a collection of recordings exploring ‘process’ and the synchronicity between improvisers. There’s some grit and dark tension in this release and some weighty sounds to digest, it’s certainly worthy of your attention. (sorry this took SO long to post)

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.
