* Featuring Pt II of an interview with kiwi musician TeMatera Smith of Symphony of Screams *

This week we again feature some quality music from New Zealand, including that hotbed of musical creativity, the city of Dunedin, which gave birth to the legendary Flying Nun label. First up is noise/pop act Die! Die! Die! going back to their 2007 release Promises, Promises. This is followed by two tracks from the seminal 1990 record, Submarine Bells, by The Chills.

We’re featuring Kiwi tunes again because it’s time to play Pt II of our interview with Matt ‘TeMatera’ Smith, lead singer of Symphony Of Screams and proprietor of AAA Records, out of the North Island. Matt speaks passionately about the importance of preserving Maori music and culture, and speaks about the work of his label.

We wrap up the show with two of the acts who are competing for Round 5 of CiTR’s Shindig this coming Tuesday – Kill City Kids and Pineapple! Also on the bill is a newcomer named M.Lund. Now who might that be…:)
