Kangaroo Valley-based singer-songwriter Andy Gordon is returning to tour BC in September! You may recall we recorded an insightful interview and live acoustic set with Andy last year in which he describe the conception and recording of his incredible album New Albion. The songs on the record are based on the interactions between Australia’s First Peoples and the British settlers. We re-broadcast part of that interview on the show this week.

Lots of great new music for the remainder of the show including a track from new Vancouver two-piece Old.Soul.Rebel, and debut single from Vancouver art/rock band Douse, who you may know under their previous name Alea Rae. I had the pleasure of seeing Northern BC-based one-man-band The Alkhemist play last weekend and I grabbed a copy of the record he recorded as a two-piece while living in Haida Gwaii, under the name Shadows Cast.
