The Show: I’m checking out, checking out…

Very excited to announce that Henry Nicol and Sam Perry’s brand new DOG Power album is finally here. Get yer stinking mitts on it over at their Bandcamp or have a listen below. The dark and sifty underbelly of Otautahi Christchurch never sounded so good. So good in fact that when trying to decide what track to play on the show today we took the easy way out and played a handful. Easy.

The Show: I got some things I cannot add up in my mind…

If the show today was a degustation menu it would go a little something like this… baroque pop, power pop, gentle pop, a musical sorbet, a noodle without, distressed beats, 80s synth house, and a final refreshing sorbet.

And Fraserhead is still addicted to the twangy-jaunty-indie-country-power-pop of the new SCHOFIELD SPIRES album belafonte. Thank you Blair Parkes for the tip off.

“math teacher” is a favourite. Can’t believe they didn’t win RDU’s RoundUp on the strength of this number alone! Scandal!!!

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…
