The Show: I’ll be eating breakfast in the evening, as the world crumbles in May…

More sneaky threesomes on the show today, this time round plundering new albums from LES BAXTERS and PICKLE DARLING.

And we do love our synth-pop. So how could we resist MANIFEST KITSUNE‘s “catchy, creepy Lovecraft inspired synthwave live electronic anthem for the surreal year of 2021”? Hint: we couldn’t.

And on with the show…

The Show: BNE

A recent flying visit to Brisbane by Fraserhead shaped the playlist today. A tight schedule meant he could not get to any gigs or record shopss but scouring Bandcamp later on for Brisbane’s alt, indie, left-field and electronically tinged offerings shed light on quite a vibrant music culture. Think of it as a musical travelogue rather than an exhaustive survey. Thank you also to Mel Echo of Melbourne’s Annual Leaf for recommendations and pointers too.

PS: The above image is a detail of “Borne On The Wind” (2013) by Brisbane born artist Anne Wallace from her Suburban Noir project. The major survey Anne Wallace: Strange ways at QUT Art Museum more than made up for missing out on gigs and record shops.

And on with the show…
