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.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra – ‘From The Sun’ [NZ]
Chris Knox – ‘Meat’ [NZ]
Larissa Tandy – ‘Harder Heavier’ [AU]

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’.

* Interview with Rose Henry and Kristofer Lee Scott LIVE in the CiTR studio *

This week’s special guest is local singer-songwriter Kristofer Lee Scott! This is Kristofer’s second time on the radio (his first time was with his previous Kelowna-based band that he used to drum for). Kristofer moved to Vancouver less than a year ago to teach Primary School, and he has already enthusiastically embraced the city’s open-mike culture, and he is playing the Stranded Sunday Sessions #9 at The Railway Club!

And in anticipation of next week’s National Aboriginal Day, in the last 1/2 hr of the show we are joined by regular guest First Nations activist Rose Henry! Rose fill us in on what she’s been up to lately in the world of activism and she introduces a brand new track from the legendary Buffy Saint-Marie.
