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.
Is it time for a collaboration between Die Antwoord‘s Yo-Landi Vi$$er and Nicki Minaj? We certainly think so. The closest we’ll probably get is by playing them back to back on the show today but one can live in hope. Best costumes ever.
ABOUT THE JOINT
Hosts THE HERB WHISPERER and FRASERHEAD go all over the shop with an eclectic, left-field, and off-kilter selection of cosmic disco, electro, indie, hip-hop, house, dub, and anything with a motorik vibe, plus the occasional guilty pleasure. If the radio sounds broken chances are it’s the THE JOINT.
