* Interview with Alea Rae and Nicholas from The Good In Everyone *

Today we revisit the proto-grunge sounds of Australia’s Cosmic Psychos, featuring the fuzz-bass and vocal growl of farmer and bulldozer driver Ross Knight. The fascinating and unlikely story of the band’s adventures overseas has been documented in the film ‘Blokes You Can Trust’ [2014].

Today is our xmas special and we air a handful of Christmas-themed songs, including a super-cool track by Vancouver’s Paul Leahy (of the band Polly) called ‘Rumble on Christmas Eve Night‘.

And in the last half hour of the show we catch up once again with Alea Rae and her band, as well as Nicholas from indie-pop band The Good In Everyone. Our returning guests reflect on the year in music, especially in regard to the Vancouver scene.

* Alea Rae LIVE in the CiTR studio *

We begin today’s show by revisiting the edgy, swampy, alternative blues of Beasts of Bourbon. It’s just a been announced that a much-warranted documentary on the legendary band is in the works. You can see a brief trailer here.

And after two weeks off we’re back with a live studio guest! New Westminster-based folk artist Alea Rae has made the #99 bus trip down to CiTR studio, along with Patrick, another 1/3 of her band, who joins in with expert acoustic accompaniment. Alea and Patrick perform three intricate folk songs today, including both sides of the ‘Flies/Lancaster’ single which is being released at the Media Club on 14 August.
