Double J radio in Australia is a great source of quality new music. I ran across an article on their website recently called ‘9 Australian bands from the 2000s worth revisiting’ and we’re playing three of these acts a the top of show – The Sleepy Jackson, The Red Sun Band and my personal favourite who i remember seeing live in concert, Rocket Science, featuring theremin-wielding, wild front-man Roman Tucker!

Lots of great new music on the show, as always, including renowned Australian songwriter Darren Hanlon and a track from The Valery Trails, a unique band who have more recordings than live performances under their belts given that part of the band lives in Australian and the other in Houston, Texas.
