Mercy Arms, Red Riders and Youth Group all came to prominence in the potent Sydney scene of the 2000’s and you can hear a sampling of their tunes this week. From there we share a track from new Sydney indie band Key Out from their record Anthropomorphia, out on Half A Cow. Our selection of new Canadian tracks features Tayt Modern (Vancouver), Harmony Trowbridge (Toronto) and Jah’Mila of Halifax, whose powerful protest song ‘Chant Their Names,’ “is a cry for change in a system that has failed the black community repeatedly.”

This week I read on the I-94 Bar website a glowing review of a rare local show by Sydney-based punk stalwarts The Celibate Rifles.  So I was inspired to revisit three classics from the band’s catalogue at the top of the show.   We introduce listeners to Kiwi-based soul/r&b artist Aaradhna whose song ‘Brown Girl’ is a response to her experiences with racism.  We shift gears with a track from Montreal-based metal band Floating Widget‘s debut record.  And we also feature tracks from the sophisticated folk/pop Vancouver-based outfit Jasper Sloan Yip and Frontal Lobotomy, a cool three-piece folk act from Prince George, BC who I had the good fortune to see live recently.
