New Zealand Month is now officially over, but not before our last first-half-of-show tribute to the quality sounds, past and present of our Kiwi musical friends. Much-loved  high energy alt-rock band Shihad’s classic The General Electric kicks off the show, followed by a Pacifier track (from Shihad’s ill-chosen name change to break the US market period) and another track from front-man Jon Toogood’s project The Adults. Then we introduce contemporary Kiwi acts Kosmetika, Being and Bernie Griffen and the Thin Men. And keep listening as we debut a track from Jess Hart‘s new record Sex and Bureaucracy, and air three tracks from the brand new Toronto-based artist Eamon McGrath‘s new record Tantrama, that was written and recorded in New Brunswick.

Featuring an interview w/singer-songwriter Tanya Gallagher

Chris Knox – ‘Meat’ [NZ]

Tanya Gallagher – ‘Planes, Trains and Buses’ [CA]
Tanya Gallagher – ‘Whiskey Hearts’ [CA]
Coolfog – ‘Summer Mix’ [CA]

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’.

* Featuring an interview with singer-songwriter Lindsey White *

This week we are joined by singer-songwriter Lindsey White, who phones all the way from her home in Winnipeg, Manitoba!  Lindsey is touring western Canada in support of her latest release ‘Renegades’, an album long in the making and inspired by hugely transformative events in her life. Such was the emotional turbulence of that period that Lindsey decided to write a companion book for the album.  Today Lindsey speaks of the origins of the record and fills us in on the valuable and fascinating service she performs teaching inner city kids music in Winnipeg.

* Featuring an interview with Vancouver-based free-jazz electronica act coolfog *

Today’s show is a great reminder for local musicians to get in touch with us, because not only can have your tunes aired on the show, but you can even come into the studio for an interview!  That’s what Michael Raphael did recently with his free-jazz electronica project coolfog.

Michael introduces us to the world of synth-based home recordings.  He spins some of his highly inventive tunes for us, as well as some of his favourite tracks from local electronic acts, and a throwback to 1980s Canadian pop act Chalk Circle.

* Featuring an interview with Jordan Bober, organizer of this week’s ‘Living the New Economy’ summit in Vancouver, BC *

We have something different on the show today.  Our special guest is Jordan Bober, who is a leading figure in Vancouver’s progressive communities who are organizing for more sustainable ways of living and co-creating.  Jordan is the director at large of the Vancouver Green Party, and co-initator of the Seedstock Community Currency.

Today he phones through to speak about this week’s cutting edge event called Living the New Economy, a 6-day confluence of events, people and ideas to explore, understand, remember and catalyze the deeply interconnected nature of our world.  Folks still have time to get down to Granville Island this weekend and take part in some innovative workshops which will open their eyes to real alternatives to our current unbalanced and unfair economic system.  Listen in to be inspired!
