The Show: Flickering, flickering, flickering…

“Hey pretty baby it’s been a while, haven’t seen your lovely face for a long time”

Yes, it’s been a long time Maria Minerva and it’s good to have you back. The new album Soft Power is out 18 September on 100% Silk, and until then we’ve got “Wake Up In NYC” on repeat…

Not to play favourites or anything but our 8K compatriot Dik Detonic (aka New Ways 2 Noise) is celebrating his solitary confinement in Melbourne by getting S:Bahn back together. “Sync or Swim” is out now and the album “Queen Of Diamonds” is due for release very soon on Polaks Records. “Another month of fucking Sundays” indeed.

The Show: Hotbox your car…

The tail end of another Christchurch winter has been unseasonably warm, so it’s more than appropriate to be enjoying DRY DIVE‘s ‘in the summer’.

If you’re after something a little more melancholic and suited to a spring day then allow us to recommend CAMERON FINLAY‘s recent release ‘Warm Morning’.

It’s also the welcome return of THE FLYING SORCERERS with their roundup of assorted material recorded since 2011, “The Unrealistic Expectations of The Flying Sorcerers”.

And on with the show…
