We have a real treat at the top of the show this week – new music from Custard! Custard were a seminal indie band from Brisbane who existed primarily between 1990 and 1990, featuring the whip smart and quirky songwriting of Dave McCormack. Custard came back to life in 2009 to perform at the 150th anniversary of the state of Queensland and this was followed with a brand new record in 2015 named Come Back, All Is Forgiven. You can hear a track off this record as well as two vintage Custard Tunes.

Later in the show we feature brand new music from Perth-based acts Craig Hallsworth and Childsaint, as well as more tracks from the Mint Records ‘Quarter Life Crisis’ compilation.

* Featuring tracks by Cub, Feedtime, The Church and more *

I had a chance meeting at CiTR radio today with Robynn Iwata, vox and guitar with the band Cub who were one of the early flagship bands of Vancouver’s venerable Mint Records label (thanks for the introduction Nardwuar!). Cub helped pioneer the jangle-guitar pop punk that became known as ‘cuddlecore’. You can hear a couple of Cub songs at the start of the show as well as tracks from their one of their contemporaries, Maow, featuring a young Neko Case.

A highlight of the second half of the show is the debut single from Vancouver’s Ashley Shadow. Ashley has been a part of many projects in the past, most notably as bassist for The Organ. This stunning song showcases her remarkable voice prowess.
