The Show: I still get nervous metaphysically…

Artwork by New Brighton and Christchurch music legend BLAIR PARKES

Musically the New Year used to feel like the graveyard shift of the music business –  a time of the year full of remixes and reissues and repackaging. This year, maybe due to the kids just getting on with getting on there seems to be a steady stream of releases coming out of Christchurch – Ōtautahi.

For that reason on the show today listen out for recent releases from Joint favourites Kelvin Hurts (ex CHC now ALK), Liam K. Swiggs, Mad Frank, Dilemma Beats, Jagā, a sneaky threesome from pickle darling, and some synth loveliness from the mysterious Supernova Wolf. Plus we plunder the immaculate selections of Keytars & Violins for some of the best left field techno of 2018. Happy New Year.

And speaking of Christchurch output, the artwork above is by New Brighton and Christchurch music legend Blair Parkes. Listen to his tunes at https://blairparkes.bandcamp.com and have a peek at his artworks at https://blairparkes.wordpress.com

The Show: Too hot to sing, too hot to think…

Doing things back to front today and starting with the (so called) slow burners and then finishing with the (so called) bangers. A bit of catching up from releases that escaped the attention from earlier this year plus a lot of new stuff from the likes of Camilla Sparksss, Mad Frank, Mmdelai, Sabiwa, MISS RED, Kambo Super Sound System, pickle darling, DOG Power, and Sandro Perri. Also, a sneaky plundering of the Whities back catalogue.

The Show: I’m checking out, checking out…

Very excited to announce that Henry Nicol and Sam Perry’s brand new DOG Power album is finally here. Get yer stinking mitts on it over at their Bandcamp or have a listen below. The dark and sifty underbelly of Otautahi Christchurch never sounded so good. So good in fact that when trying to decide what track to play on the show today we took the easy way out and played a handful. Easy.

The Show: Christchurch – Ōtautahi 2017… the year in review

Today it’s a review of the year in music from Christchurch – Ōtautahi featuring some of our favourite releases throughout 2017.

We couldn’t quite fit them all in, some may not strictly have been made in “Christchurch”, and there are some tracks that were produced earlier than 2017 but only saw the light of this day this year, but we’re sure you get the gist.

And because we like to get a bit OCD on it – and also to avoid ranking art – the setlist features the artists in chronological order of track release…
