Electronic group The Avalanches, who formed in Melbourne in 1997, are known globally for their innovative debut album ‘Since I Left You’ (2000). The album was noted for artfully assembling some 3,500 vinyl samples. The band has finally released their follow-up record ‘Wildflower’. We feature a track from this album, along with a track from the first album and a curious demo featuring David Berman of the Silver Jews on spoken word vocals.

Later in the show we feature all four tracks from the ‘My Peace River‘ fundraiser EP by Miss Quincy and Twin Peaks. The CD was put together to raise awareness of the protest movement against the Site C dam on the Peace River Valley in Northern British Columbia. If approved, the $8.8 billion dollar project will flood 57,000 acres of First Nation and heritage agricultural land. All the tracks on the EP were recorded live on the banks of the Peace River by Miss Quincy & Twin Peaks.

* Featuring LIVE music by High Society and David Roy Parsons as well as guest Rod Matheson of EverydayMusicTV *

The established friendships between all three of our guests on the show this week, is testament to the supportive musical climate in East Vancouver. Our first guest, Rod Matheson, has been filming 1000 songs in 1000 days and uploading them to youtube for his innovative Everyday Music project. Rod has already met and filmed a huge number of talented locals, including the members of High Society, who play four songs live in the studio today! Incidentally, Rod is a big fan of folk musician David Roy Parsons, who returns to Stranded this week to play two songs – and oldie and a new one – right at the end of our fun-packed studio gathering.

* Featuring special guest singer-songwriter Jamison Troy LIVE in the CiTR studio *

Nardwuar the Human Serviette recently gifted me with a copy of the debut 7″ of Vancouver garage rock legends The Smugglers, straight from his personal archive!  You can hear both sides of the record at the start of today’s show.  Next up are tracks from the three artists who are playing the Mint Records showcase at this weekend’s Sled Island Festival in Calgary (which by now unfortunately is washed out due to the epic floods…)

The remainder of the show is devoted to bands from the province of Saskatchewan.  Rah Rah and Library Voices are two of Regina’s finest bands. And Regina native Jamison Troy joins us live in the  CiTR studio!  Jamison has three recordings to his name, is very active in in the local Vancouver scene where he is presently based.  Jamison shares two brand new tracks today, as well as his single ‘I’ve Hurt People’, and speaks of his recent cross-Canada jaunt. We finish up the show with two of Jamison Troy’s recommended artists, and the cover of ‘Cortez the Killer’ by The Church, from their Box of Birds album.

* Featuring an introduction to 1990s inner-city Sydney band Crow and the brand new single from New Zealand’s Matt Langley *

Crow were a brooding, explosive, and highly influential alternative band who were a fixture of Sydney’s thriving music scene in the 90s. Featuring the song-writing partnership of Peter Fenton and Peter Archer, Crow existed from 1988-1999, before a 2007 reformation that is still running. Today on the show we feature two tracks from the unconventional, yet powerful Steve Albini produced full-length ‘My Kind Of Pain’ (1993).

Matt Langley is surely one of the top current songwriting talents from New Zealand. Following the well-received ‘Featherbones’ LP and his award for best New Zealand country song for ‘7:13’, Matt returns with his highly anticipated sophomore release, Virginia Avenue. Today we feature the brand new single from that soon-to-be released long-player.

And we wrap up the show with a few more tracks from the Safe Amplification Society compilation of 2012 that show-cases a range of top-notch Vancouver indie bands.

Crow- ‘Railhead’ [AU]
Crow -‘How and Why Wonder’ [AU]

* Featuring a mix-bag of great new Cancon tunes *

I recently discovered a curious compilation LP in the CiTR record library that is perfect for the show -‘Beyond The Southern Cross – A Compilation of Indie Recordings from Australia and New Zealand’.  ‘Beyond The Southern Cross’ was released as a double vinyl album by Ink Records (INK 4D) in 1984 and features tracks by notable underground bands who were active in the late 70s/early 80s.  We play from the compilation two tracks a piece by Tactics and legendary Flying Nun band The Clean, from New Zealand.

The remainder of the show is dedicated to showcasing recent releases by a superb crop of Canadian independent artists, many of who have recently been touring extensively throughout Canada, and even Scandinavia for Jenny Ritter.  Brave Parents is the hypnotic new project from Shane Turner who has recently relocated from Vancouver to Toronto.  Another real treat today is two tracks by Eamon McGrath from the Pegasus sessions of demo recordings that were recorded during the autumn of 2011, prior to last year’s last year’s Young Canadians.
