The Show: My friends are all there, The twinks and the bears, Down those spiral stairs…

In which Fraserhead does things a little bit differently today by starting off with the slow, slow, slow burners and builds up to the bangers at the end, with all sorts in between…

The new Ben Woods album PUT is finally out next Wednesday, and on white vinyl no less. I thought Mr. Woods’ single ROMANCY from earlier this year was going to be my favourite track of 2019 but I didn’t count on hearing another gentle lullaby in the form of GOOD 2 BE SLEEPING. How can you not love a song with the lyric “My friends are all there, The twinks and the bears, Down those spiral stairs…”?

And on with the show…

The Show: I think you owe us $750

How did we miss this psychedelic goodness first time round? JAINS MIND aka Jack Swain released the From Nowhere EP back in March. Here’s his secret…

I recorded the whole thing in a little living room in a little blue house near the beach in Christchurch just after we first moved in, we had no wifi for a few months so it was really easy to just focus on music, doing it for hours and hours everyday.

And if the EP isn’t enough for you then the latest track “Welcome Home” will keep you tripping balls in the meantime.

Meantime, here’s the show…
