An article from an Australian music journalist was posted online recently decrying the supposed lack of contemporary protest songs being written by Australian artists. In the last week there’s been push-back from more discerning listeners who note that the writer didn’t dig deep enough, as there are dozens of examples of protest songs from scenes not dominated by caucasian and heteronormative musicians. Andrew Stafford’s Guardian article lists a number of songs including those written by Missy Higgins, Baker Boy and The Drones and you can hear those tracks on this week’s show.

New Zealand Music Month has been and gone for another year but I caught on a bit late this time around so we’re extending our tribute for another show! We air three undeniable classics up front from Chris Knox, Straightjacket Fits and The Chills. Then we introduce listeners to two quality acts from the Fishrider Records roster – Death and The Maiden and The Shifting Sands.

Brilliant guitarist Phil Kikuchi from Vancouver has released a new acoustic record called ‘Wood and Steel Alchemist’ and we feature a track from it in the second half of the show. You’ll also hear an ambient track from Karina Pry and a cut from the debut full-length from Adrian Teacher and The Subs!
