The Show: Hotbox your car…

The tail end of another Christchurch winter has been unseasonably warm, so it’s more than appropriate to be enjoying DRY DIVE‘s ‘in the summer’.

If you’re after something a little more melancholic and suited to a spring day then allow us to recommend CAMERON FINLAY‘s recent release ‘Warm Morning’.

It’s also the welcome return of THE FLYING SORCERERS with their roundup of assorted material recorded since 2011, “The Unrealistic Expectations of The Flying Sorcerers”.

And on with the show…

The Show: I won’t get on my knees. Don’t make me do that please…

While researching and putting together the show this week (which involves throwing darts at music maps and scouring Bandcamp for Christchurch and Brisbane music) I stumbled across Hatchie & The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart’s glorious cover of The Jesus & Mary Chain’s “Sometimes Always”.

Proof indeed that the Reid brothers have an uncanny knack for writing perfect pop songs lovingly drenched in honeyed guitar tones. Sadly the pink vinyl 7-inch single has sold out but you can still have a listen below.

I seem also to have stumbled into the trap of playing TV theme tunes, but sometimes you just have to scratch that itch.

And on with the show…
