Double J radio in Australia is a great source of quality new music. I ran across an article on their website recently called ‘9 Australian bands from the 2000s worth revisiting’ and we’re playing three of these acts a the top of show – The Sleepy Jackson, The Red Sun Band and my personal favourite who i remember seeing live in concert, Rocket Science, featuring theremin-wielding, wild front-man Roman Tucker!

Lots of great new music on the show, as always, including renowned Australian songwriter Darren Hanlon and a track from The Valery Trails, a unique band who have more recordings than live performances under their belts given that part of the band lives in Australian and the other in Houston, Texas.

* Interview with Rose Henry and Kristofer Lee Scott LIVE in the CiTR studio *

This week’s special guest is local singer-songwriter Kristofer Lee Scott! This is Kristofer’s second time on the radio (his first time was with his previous Kelowna-based band that he used to drum for). Kristofer moved to Vancouver less than a year ago to teach Primary School, and he has already enthusiastically embraced the city’s open-mike culture, and he is playing the Stranded Sunday Sessions #9 at The Railway Club!

And in anticipation of next week’s National Aboriginal Day, in the last 1/2 hr of the show we are joined by regular guest First Nations activist Rose Henry! Rose fill us in on what she’s been up to lately in the world of activism and she introduces a brand new track from the legendary Buffy Saint-Marie.

* Featuring an interview with singer-songwriter Lindsey White *

This week we are joined by singer-songwriter Lindsey White, who phones all the way from her home in Winnipeg, Manitoba!  Lindsey is touring western Canada in support of her latest release ‘Renegades’, an album long in the making and inspired by hugely transformative events in her life. Such was the emotional turbulence of that period that Lindsey decided to write a companion book for the album.  Today Lindsey speaks of the origins of the record and fills us in on the valuable and fascinating service she performs teaching inner city kids music in Winnipeg.

* Interview with Saskatoon-based artist Dumb Angel *

Today’s special guest, Shaun Mason – aka Dumb Angel – calls all the way from Saskatoon, Sk! Dumb Angel plays atmospheric, layered music that is self-described as ‘spacey, melodic and confessional’ (Videos and Venues blog).  Shaun speaks of the Prairie origins and initial Beach-Boys inspiration of his project, as well as his time in Montreal where he first connected with Matt and Rick from The Eternal Husbands.  You can hear tracks from the brand new Dumb Angel record called ‘Broken Glass’ (out now on Clamour Records), as well as Shaun’s recommendations of other great Saskatoon bands.

* Featuring a retrospective on The Church *

Here on Stranded we periodically re-visit the exquisite and arguably peerless musical back catalogue of legendary Australian band The Church.  And it’s fitting this week given the band, who have been recording masterworks of lyrically-evocative guitar-driven psychedelia since 1980, are embarking on a North American tour in support of their 25th album ‘Further/Deeper’, which includes a date in Vancouver on 21 Feb!  A contingent of hard-core fans have expressed dismay with the departure of founding guitarist Marty Willson-Piper but it’s clear from listening closely to the new record, that replacement Ian Hague (formerly of Powderfinger) has very ably stepped in to fill Marty’s formidable shoes.
