The Show: Moombahton, Moombahstep, Moombahcore, Moomfordsons

“We’re not cutting edge… we’re the clean up crew.”

That’s Fraserhead’s description of the show on-air today. It’s true. We’re the last to arrive at musical crime scenes, handling the hazardous tunes other shows have left (way) behind. RDU’s very own Sunshine Cleaning team.

No time for a cone of silence today but RIP Chris Kelly aka Mac Daddy.

The Show: Record Store Day + 7

On the show today Fraserhead mines a rich vein of Christchurch music from the likes of Yvnalesca, Pinn’d, Haan-808, The Salad Boys and Misfit Mod whilst The Herb Whisperer trawls through the debris of Record Store Day 2013 – The Uncluded (see video below) being the undoubted highlight. Also listen out for new shiz from King Midas Sound, !!!, and Ben La Desh.

No animals were harmed in the making of this video, but some of the animals must have been harmed at some point.

The Show: Wundercastle!

Being suckers for good pop tunes last week we played you four tracks from Crystal Magic Records, the Sydney based record label run by Fraser Austin (of Christchurch perfect synth-pop duo Frase + Bri fame). One of the tracks played was a new one from Wundercastle (aka Mark Holland of Tiger Tones!) brilliantly channelling and reinventing early 90s rave.

We’re pleased to announce that Wundercastle’s new album Straight Up Leisure Time is now available online at crystalmagic.bandcamp.com and is giving us fantastic 808 State and Altern-8 flashbacks. Loving the track “HI-NRG” with the cute little Royksopp keys. We’ll play a selection of tracks on the show today. Otherwise, have a good listen below.
