The Show: Prepare now. Official information and instruction will be given over the wireless…

A little bit of a synth overload on the show today. Vintage, retro, lo-fi, vaporwave and a bit of the coldwave. Plus there’s a sludgy, doomy sneak preview of the new Shit and Shine album to round things off proper.

Speaking of synths, we couldn’t quite fit The Dewaele Brothers aka Soulwax into the show today but if you like rare equipment then their recent project with the legendary EMS Synthi 100 will have you fizzing:

By the way, the show title today is courtesy of Analogue Electronic Whatever‘s newish single “Hole”. Cracking video too!

And on with the show…

The Show: What’s the point of your existence, if you don’t want to make a difference?

Fraserhead’s track of the week is JOHN PAUL‘s “Glenn” from the new album “Subjects”. A shuffling beat, a sneaky trumpet, and sharp lyrics a la “The Maltese Falcon’s a nativity play”. What’s not to love??? Nihilism has never been so cheerful. Pure gold. Tip of the hat to the one and only Bill from HUMAN PLEASURE RADIO for putting us on to it :)

The Show: It all means the same, down the line

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…

NECRUM SELECT


GETSET


CARAMEL SMOOTH HEAVEN & JESS ASPINWALL

The Show: Sit down politely, do it like Nike…

Good friend of The Joint Blair Parkes has been busy as ever in his shed studio down in New Brighton and he’s got a new album ‘liveable city’ out now on Bandcamp. Dreamy, fuzzy, trippy and hazy. Just how we like our pop. Video above for the single ‘habit to break’.

A track from Motorbass kicks off the show today in memory of French producer extraordinaire Philippe “Zdar” Cerboneschi (Motorbass, La Funk Mob, and Cassius). And then we delve into a werewolf exploitation horror movie soundtrack from 1971 before weaving our way through our usual left-field and eclectic selections of pop, noise, beats and off-kilter techno.
