Winter hibernation doesn’t seem to have dented or affected musical productivity in Ōtautahi Christchurch. In these darkest and coldest of months the releases keep coming.
Looking forward to the new KOOL AID (the artists formerly known as Brian Tamaki and The Kool Aid Kids) Family Portrait EP. Lovely video too for ‘Family Portrait Revisited’, ironically a good summer day out in this Antipodean Gothic paradise.
And not forgetting these Christchurch cats, to name just a few who appear on the show today…
CARAMEL SMOOTH HEAVEN & JESS ASPINWALL
And you can hear all those and even more in the show below.
Those crazy Averted Vision kids Reach and Offset go toe to toe on The Joint.
Thanks to the Averted Vision crew for making a guest appearance on the show today. If you liked the cut of their jib be sure to head along to their UNIT 9 event this Friday where they will be playing alongside iLL Figz, Embargo, Hank, Rupture and Unspecified. To get you in the mood here’s a UNIT 9 mix by RESET.
For you vinyl nutters and Madlib aficionados out there, have a peek at this wonderful interview with Laura Leishman in the Radio France vinyl archive. Love the fact that Madlib bugs out when discovering rare records in the vaults. More from the Radio Vinyle series here.
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.
