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

And you can hear all those and even more in the show below.

The Show: Joy From The World

One of those shows where, by sheer chance, every corner of the world seems to be represented (the glaring exception being our own back yard).

So thanks to the Republic of Ireland, Mali, UK, US, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, Argentina, Vietnam, Trinidad, Japan & France for the music in today’s show.

We’ll make amends on the local muisc shortfall in a special end of year show. If you can’t wait that long our 8k colleagues Cock Block & Tit Bit have put together a ClamJam Best NZ 2017 mix.

Suckers stare but I don’t care

Lots of bleeps and beats and washing machine rhythms today with not too many vocals or words spoken. Starting off with the funk, then delving into the techno, a hip hop interlude, and then finishing off with the mellow and melancholic.

The Show: Right-winging, bitter-clinging, proud clingers

OMG. Coco Solid and Disasteradio stole Ladyhawke’s convertible and went on an electropop bender!!!

It’s funny. When we meet our listeners in person the dreaded “How do you prepare for the show?” question* usually arises. In the interests of transparency this Emmanuelle video is a pretty accurate representation of our pre-show rituals…

* It’s not really a dreaded question.
