The Show: The Shipping Forecast.

The BBC Radio 4 Shipping Forecast. ASMR before ASMR even existed. Short cryptic predictions for little-known geographical locations (South Utsire anyone?), snippets of the Forecast are sprinkled throughout today’s show.

If these excerpts do give you that ASMR “low grade euphoria” help yourself to 5 hour or even 9 hour YouTube compilations.

Personal favourite from this playlist is “The Flood” by Haiku Salut, part of their reimagined soundtrack to the 1926 Buster Keaton film “The General”. So feel free to spend the rest of your week trying to sync up the entire score on Spotify with a totally legit free stream of the movie*.

The Show: If I saw you on the street…

Listen hard to today’s show and you’ll catch a sly throwback to Alvvays’ “Dreams Tonite” in the Saint Jude track.

We’d love to say there’s a rich history of artists deliberately referencing someone else’s lyrics within their own original song. Unfortunately the only other one we can think of is “Hello” by Oasis using a line or two from Gary Glitter and… well… you know… maybe cutting another musician in on your massive royalty cheque is not always the best idea.

The Show: I think you owe us $750

How did we miss this psychedelic goodness first time round? JAINS MIND aka Jack Swain released the From Nowhere EP back in March. Here’s his secret…

I recorded the whole thing in a little living room in a little blue house near the beach in Christchurch just after we first moved in, we had no wifi for a few months so it was really easy to just focus on music, doing it for hours and hours everyday.

And if the EP isn’t enough for you then the latest track “Welcome Home” will keep you tripping balls in the meantime.

Meantime, here’s the show…
