The most excellent Double J radio recently hosted a countdown of the 50 Best Australian Albums of the 90s, with ‘The Internationalist’ (1998) from Brisbane band Powderfinger coming in at #1. The single ‘Already Gone’ from that album is an amazing track and we air it today after two earlier singles from the band. Then we’re into new Australian music, followed by a track-a-piece from Vancouver-based hip hop artists Stonecold Finger, Louis Rain and Dakk’One. And we introduce three-piece nehiyawak from amiskwaciy (Edmonton), who have recently singed to Arts & Crafts with their single ‘Page’.

This week we introduce listeners to Australian songwriter Richard Davies who came to prominence in the 90s with his band The Moles, who recorded two LPs, and relocated to New York City. Richard has since embarked on a solo career which has included collaborations with other quality musicians including the great Robert Pollard from Guided By Voices!  You can hear the track ‘Zeppelin Commander’ from the Davies/Pollard project Cosmos on the show.  You can also hear a track a piece from the split cassette between Melbourne bands No Sister and Bitumen, out on Vacant Valley records, and lots of quality new Canadian music, including new two-piece noise-rock outfit COPE, out of Lethbridge, AB.
