* Featuring an interview with Toronto-based Aussie hip-hop artist NoTiOn *

Last weekend I attended the Nettwerk Records moving sale and loaded up with some rarities including a press promo EP for the 2002 Neil Finn album ‘One All’.   The EP features live acoustic tracks, interspersed with highlights of an interview that was recorded with Neil at a Los Angeles radio station.  A track from Neil’s talented son Liam follows.

Neil Finn is an example of an artist who was deeply influenced by an older brother (Tim), when he was forming his musical sensibilities in New Zealand.   This is very similar to today’s interview – Toronto-based Aussie hip hop artist Notion.  In podcast #155 we interviewed Notion’s older brother Craig (Cee).  On today’s show Notion reveals more of the story of how two hip hop loving Australian brothers made their way to Eastern Canada, where they have overcome the odds to build a loyal following in both Montreal and Toronto.  Here’s looking forward to a west coast visit from the boys…

Also on the show are tracks from SHED who are releasing their latest record on Gabriola Island this weekend, and mi’ens, a new project from Kim of Vancouver band Reverter!

Podcast #147

* 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.
