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!

Stranded podcast #236

* Featuring tracks by Cub, Feedtime, The Church and more *

I had a chance meeting at CiTR radio today with Robynn Iwata, vox and guitar with the band Cub who were one of the early flagship bands of Vancouver’s venerable Mint Records label (thanks for the introduction Nardwuar!). Cub helped pioneer the jangle-guitar pop punk that became known as ‘cuddlecore’. You can hear a couple of Cub songs at the start of the show as well as tracks from their one of their contemporaries, Maow, featuring a young Neko Case.

A highlight of the second half of the show is the debut single from Vancouver’s Ashley Shadow. Ashley has been a part of many projects in the past, most notably as bassist for The Organ. This stunning song showcases her remarkable voice prowess.
