One of those shows where a quick glance down the playlist reveals a United Nations of music genres including (but not limited to) Indonesian Shoegaze, Swedish Electronic Noise, Mongolian Throat Metal, Italian Retro Disco, South African Kwaito House, Canadian Electro, Jamaican Hip Hop, Colombian / Spanish Reggaeton, K-(Indie)Pop and, of course, Ethiopian Drone Hymns.
As an added bonus here’s a song that didn’t make the final cut but always gets a thrashing in The Joint HQ at this time of year – “Should The Bible Be Banned” by McCarthy. Happy Easter everyone!
Fraserhead at the controls today with classics from Nina Simone and Louis Prima bookending the show, and in between heaps of local produce in the form of Motte, Haan-808, Jagā, the sounds of the Crooked Lidz crew, Skymning, and Avoid Avoid, and then the weird and the wonderful from around the globe e.g. $hit and $hine, Sun Kil Moon, Daedelus, and Marshall Applewhite.
Lady Tulip aka Tulip Black, turning things upside down just like Diana Ross.
Her last appearance on The Joint was back in 2009 and today is the return of Lady Tulip. She’s not too pleased either after missing out on tickets to Beyoncé’s three Auckland gigs in October which means she will be playing the darkest, scariest R&B that she can find. Hold tight.
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.
