Yes, we have been lacking in Aussie music content of late, but that’s because it’s still New Zealand Music Month! The first half of the show is dedicated to showcasing three more classic Flying Nun Records artists introducing Wax Chattels and Blazing Shade. We also air the brand new single from Jon Toogood’s side-project The Adults, called ‘Bloodlines’ which is inspired by a Sudanese tradition known as Aghani Al-Banat, in which female musicians express resistance to patriarchy. We also air tracks from three of the nominees from the recent Indigenous Music Awards in Canada – Midnight Shine, Kristi Lane Sinclair and Snotty Nose Rez Kids.

We kick off the show with the music of a kiwi transplant to the US.  Upon relocating to Portland, Oregon, the known Ruban Nielson released a track to an anonymous bandcamp profile in 2010. To his surprise the song had received comments from blogs and even Pitchfork within a couple of days. He soon after branded himself Unknown Mortal Orchestra and has to this date released three acclaimed albums. We begin with that original home-recorded track, ‘Ffunny Ffrends’.

This week’s special guest, singer-songwriter Tanya Gallagher hails all the way from Pensacola, Florida. I didn’t expect to hear a rich southern accent when I sat down to speak with Tanya recently in Williams Lake, BC. Tanya is currently based in Vancouver. She was first drawn there to record an EP with a recommended producer and stayed to pursue higher education. Tanya speaks of her fascinating story and plays an impressive new original acoustic track ‘Whiskey Hearts’.
