The Show: Cleanin’ out our closet

In the absence of any spare time during the holiday season to listen to our usual quota of new tunes, we’ve had to re-examine the songs that didn’t make the playlist cut first time around.

Good job too. How could we have originally overlooked Eris Drew’s attempt to cram 30+ years of classic dance music loops, beats, breaks and samples into one album? Or the post-punk crunch of M(h)aol? Or Lucy Duncombe’s soaring, sweeping voice? Or… or… or…

AK DAN GWANG CHIL – Youngjeonggeori

ADG7 might create traditional minyo music from Hwanghae-do in South Korea but it has a slight feel of late 70’s / early 80’s no wave / alternative / post-punk. So, naturally, we love it.

“2 Old For This Shit” Trailer

File this under “things you never knew you wanted” – a punk rock opera based on Lethal Weapon 2, courtesy of Boyle Heights. If you desire a physical copy it’s available on VHS only. The 10 song / 14 minute package acts as a soundtrack to the band recreating their favourite scenes from the 1989 movie.

And on with the show…
