The Show: Christchurch – Ōtautahi 2017… the year in review

Today it’s a review of the year in music from Christchurch – Ōtautahi featuring some of our favourite releases throughout 2017.

We couldn’t quite fit them all in, some may not strictly have been made in “Christchurch”, and there are some tracks that were produced earlier than 2017 but only saw the light of this day this year, but we’re sure you get the gist.

And because we like to get a bit OCD on it – and also to avoid ranking art – the setlist features the artists in chronological order of track release…

The Show: Joy From The World

One of those shows where, by sheer chance, every corner of the world seems to be represented (the glaring exception being our own back yard).

So thanks to the Republic of Ireland, Mali, UK, US, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, Argentina, Vietnam, Trinidad, Japan & France for the music in today’s show.

We’ll make amends on the local muisc shortfall in a special end of year show. If you can’t wait that long our 8k colleagues Cock Block & Tit Bit have put together a ClamJam Best NZ 2017 mix.

The Show: Scissor Sister

We’re enjoying the first couple of tunes from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds new album so much we snuck one on to the show today. “She Taught Me How to Fly” first caught our eye on an episode of Later with Jools Holland at the end of October. Look carefully. One member of the band is on backing scissors.
